The advisory also provides strategies for working with individuals with co-occurring disorders and workforce and administrative concerns in working with this population. Finally, the advisory includes additional resources from SAMHSA, the American Psychiatric Association, Faces & Voices of Recovery, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the American Association for Community Psychiatry.
