Abstract

Given the high rates of comorbidity, patients commonly present with multiple diagnoses to PESs or crisis services. Clinicians must be well versed in the evaluation, differential diagnosis, and treatment of patients with substance-abuse disorders or other Axis I, II, or III conditions if they are to provide state-of-the-art treatment of patients in need of emergency care.
