Description:
In 2002 the National Advisory Committee on Drugs (NACD) commissioned a national research study on the management of dual diagnosis in mental health and addiction services. A research team at Dublin City University was awarded the research contract following open tender. There is no consensus on a definition of dual diagnosis. This causes difficulties in standardising research methodologies and identifying clinical cohorts of people with dual diagnosis. Complex definitions pose challenges for the management of dual diagnosis, particularly when separate services provide care. However, several health and social care systems have met the challenges in different ways over time. There is evidence of high prevalence of dual diagnosis, clinically effective treatment and service approaches and guidelines for best practice. However, there is little study of dual diagnosis carried out in Ireland. As a concept, dual diagnosis is not explicitly referred to in health and social policy and there are no guidelines for the management of dual diagnosis in services. Before this study there was no published evidence as to how dual diagnosis was managed by addiction and mental health services in Ireland.
