This TIP is divided into three parts that are bound and produced separately. Addressing Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors in Substance Abuse Treatment, Part 1, is for substance abuse counselors. It provides the "what" and "why" and "how" of working with clients in substance abuse treatment with suicidal thoughts and behaviors. It covers background information about suicide and substance use disorders, including risk factors and warning signs for suicide and a four-step process for addressing suicidal thoughts and behaviors in substance abuse treatment, summarized by the acronym GATE (Gather information, Access supervision, Take responsible action, and Extend the action). It also includes a set of competencies counselors should incorporate to work effectively with clients who are suicidal. Chapter 2 of Part 1 represents the heart of the "how-to" for counselors. It consists of representative vignettes of counseling sessions with clients who have suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
