Title: Addictive Disorders – Treating the Whole Person
Biography: Fiona Markham
Substance misuse and process addiction disorders are of growing global relevance. Behaviour al health facilities are treating an increasing number of primary addictions patients with co-morbid psychiatric presentations.
Understanding and developing treatment models, which empower the patient to simultaneously address the co-occurring and often complex diagnosis, is a challenge for practitioners specialising in addictive disorders. We look at the benefits of treating addiction, adverse childhood experiences and stabilising any underlying conditions in the current treatment episode.
