BUDDHAS Resource

This guide is intended to guide and support practice in working with those who are aged 55 and older with ‘dual diagnosis’.


You can now download the BUDDHAS Older Adults Dual Diagnosis Resource Guide here - BUDDHAS Resource. 

This guide covers key practice areas for practitioners working with older adults who have a dual diagnosis – a co-occurring alcohol and other drug (AOD) use and mental health problem.

The guide has been produced in response to increasing calls from services for information on working with people aged 55 years and older with a dual diagnosis.
