Treating OCD and SUD: Tools for Effective Treatment

The treatment of OCD in patients with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) presents unique challenges for OCD specialty programs and individual therapists treating OCD. Many of the aspects of OCD treatment, including engagement, education, treatment planning, ERP, and medication management, require different approaches for this population. The unique treatment issues related to the treatment for these co-occurring disorders will be addressed with case examples. Strategies provided to attendees will include sample treatment protocols, program development strategies for incorporating evidence informed OCD-SUD treatment into a practice/program, a brief overview of evidence-based treatments for SUD to enhance concurrent treatment outcomes, and other resources for clinicians and patients. Time will be allotted for audience Q&A.
