Conclusions: The results indicate that being a first- or second-generation immigrant and experiencing more symptoms of depression and anxiety are predictive of non-abstinence. Attention for linguistic and cultural congruence of dual diagnosis treatments may enhance abstinence in immigrants. Additionally, addressing symptoms of depression and anxiety in dual diagnosis treatment may be beneficial for the maintenance of abstinence. More research is needed on factors influencing treatment success in dual diagnosis patients. PMID: 31566115 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS AND SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: These conclusions are limited by a lack of well-controlled longitudinal studies. We suggest that future research be directed toward high-quality, prospective studies of cannabis in clinical populations with mood and ADs, in addition to controlled studies of cannabinoid constituents and pharmaceuticals in these populations.

Gabe rants about person-first language and how nitpicking verbiage is distracting from more pressing matters in the lives of those living with mental illness.  Overall, we decide that “crazy” is not a dirty word and there are other, more time-sensitive, things we should be focusing on that can benefit the mental health community.  SUBSCRIBE &REVIEW About The Hosts Gabe Howard is an award-winning writer and speaker who lives with bipolar disorder...
