Integrated services aimed at dual diagnosis and optimal recovery from addiction (ISADORA)

Objective

This prospective multicoated study is designed to describe service provision for patients with dual diagnosis in seven European psychiatric settings and to compare morbidity and service use for these patients with morbidity and use for patients with single diagnosis over a period of 12 months. The pattern and distribution of severe psychiatric illness and addiction will be described in each sample. The study will examine risk factors for subgroups in the samples with a specific focus on gender. The outcomes studied will comprise severity of addiction, psychiatric symptoms, treatment compliance, psychosocial functioning, social network, relapse and mortality and will be compared with a control group. Views of clients and staff concerning the adequacy of service provision will be explored. On the basis of these analyses, an educational programme for the staff of the participating centres will be developed and disseminated on a European basis.
