eBook (PDF), 160 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $12.99
Studies reveal that perhaps 90,000 Canadians are affected by both mental health problems and addictions - a condition referred to as "dual diagnosis" or DD. Although the impacts on society are considerable, remarkably little has been written in the popular media about this widespread problem. There is also inadequate awareness and training within the health, legal and social welfare systems. In FACES OF DUAL DIAGNOSIS, Pereira explains the types of mental illnesses and addictions typically found in DD. He discusses treatment regimes and offers case studies to demonstrate his contention that the most successful approach includes a holistic examination and treatment of the client's mental, physical and spiritual health. Pereira discusses his own life path and then presents a case for the creation of a Canadian Center for Policy Research on Dual Diagnosis. Dozens of DD-related resources are listed in the appendix. Dr. Pereira practices medicine in Surrey, BC.
