Respect that all behaviors are purposeful. Remain mindful that nobody changes behaviors without motivation. These essential guiding principles are the framework of this book. They will be repeated quite often as we examine the challenging population of men and women with co- occurring disorders." -From Integrated Treatment for Co-Occurring Disorders Annual studies reveal that 70 percent of men and women who died by suicide were diagnosed with a mental illness or personality disorder and used drugs to gain temporary relief from the symptoms.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Wonderful book! I have read it three times and was enthralled to finally read something that I always thought therapy should be, but was never exposed to or given the opportunity to learn. The book is human and moving as well as easy to read.—Beth Naranjo, Alcohol and Drug Counselor, MFT Intern
