This manual addresses dual diagnosis of mental illness and substance disorders. The MIDAA Service Manual is a guide to program implementation for Dual/Multiple Disorders. It contains forms that provide program underpinnings for program development, and treatment interventions in the substance abuse treatment setting, and the mental health setting. Clinical tools such as the comprehensive assessment for dual disorders, readiness scales for motivation/treatment readiness, progress reviews, pre-group interview for engagement at all levels of readiness, screening forms for both substance abuse and mental health clients, clinical overviews, data collection instruments, and much more. Also included are staff development criteria and outlines for direct care staff to implement an educational model of service for Dual/Multiple Disorders in an existing or new agency.
The manual has been developed by Kathleen Sciacca over many years of program development and implementation, and direct service care for the Addictions, and for Mental Illness, Drug Addiction and Alcoholism (MIDAA) as multiple disorders.
These programs and materials are implemented for MICAA, severely Mentally Ill Chemical Abusers and Addicted, and CAMI Chemical Abusing Mentally Ill (chemical dependence and personality disorders). It is an invaluable resource that is presently used by numerous practitioners and agencies as a step by step guide to the provision of comprehensive services. The MIDAA Service Manual has received excellent reviews in the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Journal 1995, and in the Journal of Mental Health Administration 1996.
