About the Event: 

Two-track programs focusing their energy on either substance use or other mental health challenges have continued to be the norm in many treatment settings despite the evidence showing improved outcomes for people who are dually diagnosed that receive specialized treatment. In this webinar we will explore why we should work to change this standard, and how peer support can be deployed to better support people in dual recovery.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the benefits to a focused dual-recovery program
  2. Explain the challenges faced by providers, especially smaller providers, in providing a "third track"
  3. List multiple strategies for ensuring that even in systems where a "third track" is not available, program participants understand their diagnoses, and that unique dual recovery resources are available and encouraged for them to use in support of their dual recovery.
