Comorbid substance abuse and major mental illness is a major and frequently occurring problem in contemporary healthcare. Whereas previous treatments for these disorders have often been separate and uncoordinated, integrated dual-disorder treatment is an evidence-based treatment that concurrently integrates the treatment of the psychiatric disorder and the substance misuse disorder. Consumers with both serious mental illnesses and co-occurring substance use disorders tend to have less motivation to change, are harder to engage in treatment, have higher treatment program dropout rates, and make slower progress than people with substance use disorders but no other mental disorders. When working with consumers with dual disorders, music therapists should implement a holistic treatment approach focusing on meeting spiritual, social, physical, emotional, vocational, financial, and intellectual needs. Music therapists are responsible for educating patients to identify high-risk situations and use appropriate and effective coping skills during these periods, especially when these situations are musically induced.
