Substance Use Disorder Treatment for People With Physical and Cognitive Disabilities (TIP 29)

Ch. 3: Treatment Planning and Service Delivery

About the Course:

Substance Use Disorder Treatment for People With Physical and Cognitive Disabilities (TIP 29), is intended to enhance treatment providers’ knowledge concerning people who have a physical or cognitive disability in addition to their substance use disorder. Treatment programs for substance use disorders already see many individuals with coexisting disabilities, but many providers fail to accommodate these individuals either because they are unaware of the disability or how accommodations can improve treatment outcomes (even though such accommodations are legally mandated). This course discusses treatment planning and counseling, and describes how treatment can be modified to meet the particular needs of people with coexisting disabilities. This course covers Chapter 3 only.
