Dennis Ortman counseled individuals and families struggling with substance abuse while serving as a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Since earning his doctorate in clinical psychology, he has specialized in the treatment of patients in whom psychiatric disorders coexist with addiction problems. In addition to his work in outpatient mental health clinics, he consults on integrating treatment for the dually diagnosed.
I hope that this work finds its way onto the desks, and not the bookshelves, of every therapist and counselor providing direct services to the dual diagnosis population.

This book is a wonderfully compassionate, extremely readable, and impressively non-dogmatic guide for outpatient psychotherapists interested in learning some basic, practical strategies for engaging and treating dual diagnosis patients.
