“Co-Occurring Disorders: Understanding Self-Medication and Complex Recovery” will be presented by Jeremy Suttles, MSE, LMSW; Clinical Social Worker, University of Michigan Hospital – Adult Inpatient Psychiatry.

The cycle of dual diagnosis can be a challenge for both providers and patients during recovery. This presentation will provide an overview of what co-occurring disorders are, how they are identified, their prevalence, and the most effective methods of treatment. Emphasis will be placed on a comprehensive model of recovery that provides for emotional and physical health recovery as well as ongoing sobriety. The presentation is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series and is free/open to all. 1.5 CEUs is provided for addiction professionals MCBAP and NAADAC-approved.)
