Welcome

This course is part of the Introduction to Co-existing Problems (CEP) in Youth series. The management of young people with CEP mainly involves applying established addiction and mental health treatments together in an integrated way. Unfortunately few specific CEP treatment interventions have been developed or evaluated in children and young people.

There are multiple combinations of the various mental health and substance use problems making them difficult to evaluate separately and clinical trials with these clients run into difficulties with poor engagement, compliance with treatment and high rates of early termination. Despite this, there is still much useful advice about what works for these children and young people.

The following course includes management of CEP which encompasses psychosocial and pharmacological intervention, and withdrawal management.

This section you will learn:

  • CEP treatment options for young people 
  • Individual psychosocial therapies for youth with CEP
  • Pharmacotherapies in CEP
  • Substance withdrawal and management for young people
