“Evidence from service user and provider surveys suggests that people with co-occurring conditions are often unable to access the care they need from both mental health and addiction services. Individuals experiencing mental health crisis may experience difficulty in accessing care due to intoxication (in spite of the heightened risk of harm that this brings).” Better care for people with co-occurring mental health and alcohol/drug use conditions - A guide for commissioners and service providers June 2017
