Bright S, Walsh K, Williams C. Point Prevalence and Patterns of Mental Health Comorbidity Among People Accessing Australia’s First Older Adult-Specific Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Service. J Dual Diagn. 2018;14(1):70-5.DOI: 10.1080/15504263.2017.1380247
There are good data regarding the prevalence and patterns of dual diagnosis among the general population; however, data regarding the older adult cohort are limited. We aimed to extend the knowledge of the point prevalence and patterns of dual diagnosis among older adults and the impact of dual diagnosis on the utilization of alcohol and other drug treatment services.
