The training course aims to represent a moment of reflection and in-depth study on the relationship between the different types of disorder from the use of psychoactive substances and psychopathological clinical frameworks. Substance use disorder (SUD) is very common among young patients with schizophrenia. It can precede or follow the onset of psychotic symptoms or the onset of both may coincide. The comorbility of schizophrenia
SUD reduces adherence to treatment, worsens the results of schizophrenia and increases the chances of relapse, with increased re-hospitalizations and suicide attempts. Hence the renewed interest in dealing with the new comparable and pathological frameworks according to an integrated multidisciplinary approach.
During the course will be deepened the main clinical frameworks, the peculiar aspects of the diagnostic, therapeutic and rehabilitation evaluation path, as well as the operational tools and organizational and integration aspects. In the most complex pathological situations it is necessary to adopt a multidisciplinary approach, to guarantee the patient a better ability to decode his problem, a greater diagnostic and therapeutic effectiveness, a continuity of path to avoid dysfunctional fragmentation in taking charge, to enhance the professional and instrumental resources available.
In addition, by integrating the different specialist skills and cooperating to respond to the new health needs that patients manifest to us, it is possible to proceed more fruitfully in terms of innovation and improvement of the therapeutic offer.
Within this framework, the three scientific societies FeDerSerD – Italian Federation of Operators of Addiction Departments and Services, SIP – Italian Society of Psychiatry, SINPIA - Italian Society of Child and Adolescent Neuropsychiatry, have shared the need to draw up a Service Charter, to reaffirm the overcoming of the disciplinary reference model of "double diagnosis" and to decline in some fundamental points the right of patients , both minors and adults, and their family members, to be able to count on services and specialized paths capable of countering the risk of stigmatization, organized and developed in order to guarantee qualified, specific and personalized responses to their needs.
