Outpatient treatment of adults with coexisting substance use and mental disorders

Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment
M HansonW Gross


This study examined the six-month and one-year treatment statuses of 118 patients admitted to an abstinence-oriented, outpatient facility serving dually disordered adults. Findings revealed that persons who have been underserved by the mental health and substance abuse fields can be engaged in treatment and will respond favorably to it. Overall, demographic characteristics, admission diagnoses, and past treatment history did not predict treatment outcomes. Rather, patients who participated more fully in treatment had better recoveries than did those who did not engage in treatment. In addition, patients who complied and responded to treatment during their first six months in treatment were more likely to comply and respond to treatment during the second six months of treatment. These results should encourage other clinicians to develop innovative services that meet the needs of dually disordered adults.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
