Heterogeneity of person and place: assessing co-occurring addictive and mental disorders.

Author information

Department of Psychiatry, University of Maryland, Baltimore, USA.

This paper considers common pitfalls in assessment across settings and suggests approaches to identifying and meeting the needs of clients with multiple problems.
