The purpose of this study is to determine whether integrated treatment is effective in the treatment of mental disorders and co-occurring substance use disorders.
Patients with mental disorders and co-occuring substance use disorders are characterized by high suicide and treatment drop-out rates, and long-lasting interpersonal, work, school, health and legal problems. And because mental disorders and substance use disorders interact and co-exists, it may be important to provide treatment that integrates their substance misuse and mental health problems in a comprehensive way. The health services for patients with mental health and substance use disordes are usually provided by different services and health professionals that rarely cooperate or have qualifications on both kinds of disorders. The over-all aim of the study is to evaluate the effects of evidence-based integrated and comprehensive treatment of mental health problems and co-occurring substance use disorders. The effects of the treatment will be assesses on substance use,psychopathology, and quality of life.
