Aims and Scope
Advances in Dual Diagnosis (ADD) is an international applied research journal offering peer-reviewed, practical and thought-provoking content and a forum for topical debate on dual diagnosis (co-occurring substance abuse and mental health conditions) and complex needs.
ADD is a vital resource for nurses, policy-makers, psychologists, social workers, academics, researchers, universities, colleges, local authorities, carers, service users and students. Unlike traditional research journals, ADD is read by practitioners and managers in health services, commissioning bodies, social care services, criminal justice systems and NGOs and supports frontline workers to deliver evidence-based practice.
ADD welcomes submissions from academics, practitioners and managers who work to deliver services to dually diagnosed people. The journal includes:
