This workbook provides clinicians with the tools necessary to help patients with dual diagnoses acquire basic living skills. Focusing on stress management, time management, activities of daily living, and social skills training, each living skill is taught in relation to how it aids in recovery and relapse prevention for each patient's individual lifestyle and pattern of addiction. This form of treatment allows mentally ill chemically addicted patients to learn and use the skills necessary to remain drug free. It also instructs recovering addicts on how to manage their psychiatric symptoms to promote the highest level of integration into their community.
