Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery (E-IMR) helps practitioners integrate care for mental and substance use disorders.

Participant Comments:

“We are constantly looking to deliver evidence-based practices in a manner that is easy for our patients to understand. Your manual on E-IMR provides just that, in a curriculum that can be divided into sequential sessions. It also incorporates elements of person-centered care, which has been a major initiative within our programs. In sum, E-IMR appears to be an ideal “fit” for our patients with co-occurring disorders as well as for our treatment calendar, which usually involves weekly 45-minute sessions.”

An emerging evidence-informed intervention, Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery (E-IMR) helps practitioners integrate care for mental and substance use disorders. Innovative and effective, this new care model combines two proven practices: Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) and Illness Management and Recovery (IMR). Practitioners gain a shared language and proven strategies to use when delivering care to individuals with co-occurring disorders (CODs). This new approach helps practitioners, and the individuals they serve, identify the interaction between substance use and mental illness. This individualized and integrated care delivers education and skills to address both disorders. E-IMR can be implemented in either mental health or substance use treatment settings.

E-cigarettes: Variations in nicotine delivery and toxicity profiles

Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) are devices designed to deliver inhalable nicotine without burning tobacco. These devices have been continuously evolving and increasing in popularity since their first introduction to the market, and many different types are currently available.  E-cigarettes vary dramatically in design, voltage settings, battery power, the airflow rate, and other characteristics. In addition, liquids designed for the use with e-cigarettes are highly diverse, with hundreds of brands and thousands of flavors, each available in a variety of nicotine concentrations. The impact of these factors on nicotine intake and toxicant exposures in users will be discussed. Learn More
