Understanding The Clinical Diagnostic Criteria For:

SUBSTANCE USE DISORDERS

     

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), that is used by mental health professionals no longer uses the terms substance abuse and substance dependence, rather it refers to substance use disorders, which are defined as mild, moderate, or severe to indicate the level of severity, which is determined by the number of diagnostic criteria met by an individual. Substance use disorders occur when the recurrent use of alcohol and/or drugs causes clinically and functionally significant impairment, such as health problems, disability, and failure to meet major responsibilities at work, school, or home. According to the DSM-5, a diagnosis of substance use disorder is based on evidence of impaired control, social impairment, risky use, and pharmacological criteria.

RECOVERY STORIES

Reducing Stigma & Privacy Barriers

 

Why CCR Supports Telehealth Solutions for

Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

 

 

(RURAL NEWS TODAY) - "Utilizing Telehealth technologies in Colusa County and neighboring communities to access care addresses provider shortages, transportation challenges, and reduces the over-all social stigma often associated with seeking treatment at a mental health facility located in a rural community, where everyone knows everyone, and a person's anonymity can not always be protected," says Susan Wagenaar, founder of Colusa County Recovery. "Our county has three new community-based TELEHEALTH CARE-CENTERS  located in Colusa, Williams and Stonyford. These centers are effectively decreasing care gaps and privacy barriers; while broadly advancing telehealth, to community members in need of primary care, mental health, and substance use recovery services," says Wagenaar. It's a win-win situation for us all.
