Special Guest Interview: Dr. LaNae Jaimez, Professor of Psychology, Solano Community College

Long gone are the days when a substance abuse treatment program ONLY treats substance use disorders. In todays landscape most if not all programs are Dual Diagnosed or Co-occuring capable. Join us as we discuss the role mental health treatment has played in the successful recovery from substance abuse for many individuals. It wasn't always so. The integration of mental health into mainstream substance abuse treatment was not a smooth one. There were (still are) difficulties with traditional treatment program staff accepting, and understanding mental health treatment. The stigma attached to having a mental health disorder contributes to client reluctance to fully engage in the assessment process. Our guest breaks down the rise of mental health treatment as an integral part of substance abuse treatment and recovery.
