Content By: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: First-Episode Psychosis and Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorders.

Course Description: Typically, individuals present with symptoms that are indicative of serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI) during late adolescence or early adulthood. Break through psychosis, or first-episode psychosis (FEP), is commonly an indicator of an SPMI that is evidenced during this time-period. Symptom management, sans the addition of any co-occurring disorders, is commonly difficult for both patient and practitioner. The addition of co-occurring disorders further serves to complicate the clinical picture. Practitioners routinely struggle when the manifestation of FEP symptoms occurs concomitantly with the presence of Substance Use Disorder (SUD).  Researchers note that individuals who present with FEP symptoms evidence greater success rates respective of symptom mitigation when reduction or discontinuation of substance use occurs at, or shortly after, the commencement of FEP. Best practice guidelines concerning the implementation of tx for this demographic are also discussed in this course.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify symptoms that are indicative of psychosis and SUD
  2. Understand the benefits of employing a comprehensive and integrated tx approach for young adults who experience FEP
  3. Understand the research findings respective of applicable tx modalities pertaining to SUD for this demographic
