The Interaction Between Chronic Medical Conditions and Mental Illness: Treating The Whole Person 

The fact that substance use disorders also frequently occur at a higher rate among this population intensifies the difficulty of developing a treatment plan that can address all three. This webinar explores the interactions between these different disorders and illnesses, and advocates for an approach that treats the individual as part of a holistic, stage-wise, person-centered integrated plan for treatment.
