Research and clinical experiences show that people engaging in drug addiction for some years usually embrace severe mental illnesses including schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Schizophrenia usually occurs in patients with prolonged use of amphetamine and hallucinogens. Borderline personality disorder commonly happens in female addicts who have experienced abandonment and childhood abuse. On the one hand, drug addiction can be used to cope with symptoms of severe mental illness. On the other hand, prolonged drug addiction can also induce severe mental illness. A close look into individuals with chronic drug addiction usually review that they encounter suffering, hardship and traumas. There are two types of traumas encountered by people with drug addiction. The first one is trauma before drug addiction and substance abuse. Many of them may have suffered through abuse, oppression and abandonment in their lives. Another one is drug led traumas because of psychosocial deprivation and medical problems induced by chronic addiction. In this book, apart from describing a comprehensive model in understanding and interpreting the complexity of trauma, mental illness and drug addiction, this model is applied and illustrated in clients with borderline personality disorder and schizophrenia, drug addiction and those who have experience different forms of trauma. Related psychosocial interventions are also thoroughly discussed.

Learn from the experiences of these program sites to develop better services for women with co-occurring disorders and histories of violence This book explores the efforts of the Women, Co-Occurring Disorders and Violence Study to address the significant lack of appropriate services for women trauma survivors with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Experts describe the services integration programs of nine participating sites that address the multiple needs of these women. In this guide, you will find useful strategies for integrating services that are responsive to the strengths and needs of the individual as well as the community. This vital resource examines how—over a period of five years—sites designed, implemented, and evaluated their interventions. You will learn how sites developed their strategies for integrating services at both the clinical/individual level and at the services or systems level. The book also shows how trauma-informed, gender-specific, culturally competent care fosters treatment that is sensitive to related issues such as children and parenting, interpreting culture cues, and socioeconomic difficulties. In Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders, you will learn about the details of nine different programs, including: Franklin County Women’s Research Project—a collaborative project for rural women, designed and operated by local consumer/survivor/recovering women (CSRs) The Triad Women’s Project—a semi-rural comprehensive system of care to respond to the needs of women and children The Women Embracing Life and Living (WELL) Project-interventions include trauma, parenting, systems integration and mutual help groups with Integrated Care Facilitators providing resource coordination and advocacy services PROTOTYPES, Centers for Innovation in Health, Mental Health, and Social Services—the three levels of integration the Systems Change Center implemented the Boston Health Commission—an integrated model of trauma-informed services culturally and linguistically appropriate for its service population of primarily poor Latina and African American women Palladia’s Portal Project—a comprehensive trauma-informed intervention designed to put trauma and safety first to assist women remaining in treatment Arapahoe House’s New Directions for Families—a family-oriented intervention for women and their dependent children Allies—comprehensive, integrated services for women as well as intervention for their children, ages 5-10 The District of Columbia Trauma Collaboration Study (DCTCS)—a two-phase project addressing the needs of dually diagnosed women trauma survivors Responding to Physical and Sexual Abuse in Women with Alcohol and Other Drug and Mental Disorders provides you with first-hand accounts of the process by which programs and service systems were transformed. As challenges were met and strategy was adapted to “real world” situations, the sites discussed in this text found new and improved methods for helping this unique group of women. The book offers tips, solutions, and possibilities to mental health professionals, substance abuse professionals, and domestic violence professionals, and even patients and/or clients searching for support.

This volume presents a comprehensive overview of childhood trauma, considering the psychopathological definition and its neurobiological implications as well as its impact on different psychiatric disorders. The focus on childhood trauma rather than that occurring in adulthood is important due to its general “neuro-psyco-socio” and its specific biological implications, since trauma during childhood impacts directly on neurodevelopment. It has been suggested that early life stress increases vulnerability to psychiatric disorders; however, the exact mechanisms of this association are not yet completely understood. Although childhood trauma could be considered too unspecific to be an important risk factor for individual psychiatric disorders since it seems to occur across the board, it impacts differently on different psychiatric disorders, and it can modulate their clinical expression. Therefore, the assessment of early trauma needs to be included in the clinical evaluation of patients with psychiatric disorders. The volume will be an invaluable tool for psychiatrists, helping them to select suitable pharmacological, psychotherapeutic and rehabilitative treatments.

The problem of addiction is one of the major challenges and controversies confronting medicine and society. It also poses important and complex philosophical and scientific problems. What is addiction? Why does it occur? And how should we respond to it, as individuals and as a society? The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy and Science of Addiction is an outstanding reference source to the key topics, problems and debates in this exciting subject. It spans several disciplines and is the first collection of its kind. Organised into three clear parts, forty-five chapters by a team of international contributors examine key areas, including: the meaning of addiction to individuals conceptions of addiction varieties and taxonomies of addiction methods and models of addiction evolution and addiction history, sociology and anthropology population distribution and epidemiology developmental processes vulnerabilities and resilience psychological and neural mechanisms prevention, treatment and spontaneous recovery public health and the ethics of care social justice, law and policy. Essential reading for students and researchers in addiction research and in philosophy, particularly philosophy of mind and psychology and ethics, The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy and Science of Addiction will also be of great interest to those in related fields, such as medicine, mental health, social work, and social policy.
