Skyrocketing Criminal Justice Populations Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2005 What is the Problem ? People with mental illnesses, substance use disorders, and cooccurring disorders are significantly over-represented in the criminal justice system Substance Abuse A maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress failure to fulfill obligations at work, school or

home use in situations in which it is physically hazardous use-related legal problems persistent or recurrent social or interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of the substance Substance Dependence A maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress

tolerance withdrawal taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down/control use spending a great deal of time obtaining, using, or recovering important social, occupational or recreational activities abandoned or reduce because of substance use continued use despite persistent /recurrent physical or psychological problem substance is likely to cause or exacerbate Mental Disorders

Clinically significant emotional, behavioral or psychological syndrome or pattern A diagnosable mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder from the DSM-IV-R Results in functional impairment that interferes with at least one major life activity Distinction between problems, serious mental illnesses and severe mental illnesses. Co-Occurring Disorders

One or more mental disorder[s] AND one or more disorder[s] relating to alcohol and/or other drug use Must be established independently of each other Very prevalent in specific environments Clinical settings Homeless settings Criminal Justice settings Drug Addiction and Mental Illnesses are brain diseases that affect behavior

(NIDA, 2006) Screening A formal process of testing to determine whether a client does or does not warrant further attention at the current time in regard to a particular disorder. The screening process for behavioral disorders seeks to answer a yes or no question: Might the offender have a mental illness, a substance use disorder, or both. Note that the screening process does not necessarily identify what kind of problem the person might have, or how serious it might be, but determines whether or not further assessment is warranted. Assessment

An assessment for behavioral disorders consists of gathering key information and engaging in a process with the offender that enables the counselor to understand the clients readiness for change, problem areas, mental health and substance use diagnoses, disabilities, strengths, and risks. An assessment typically involves a clinical examination of the functioning and well-being of the offender, a record review, and includes a number of written and oral tests. Assessment of the offenders behavioral disorders is an ongoing process that should be repeated over time to capture the changing nature of the offenders status. Principles of Effective Treatment 2.

4. When co-occurring mental and addictive disorders exist, integrated treatment strategies are to be used. (NIDA, 2006) Integrated treatment strategies Traditional models of treatment for persons with dual disorders results in poor outcomes Integrated treatment associated with better outcomes Supported by integrated systems of care Need to bring in housing, health, and other service arenas Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment is an evidence based practice Past Year Treatment among Adults Aged 18 or Older with Co-Occurring SMI and a
