>Elizabeth: Thank you for your reply. I work in
Boston also and yes, the diagnosis of the year and
most likely the nineties is "borderline," in addition
to ADHD (I think women are being left out on this one).
Primarily my concerns are finding correct medications
and finding that trauma survivors who are dually dx
are needing two medications aside from one for sleep.
I work closely with a psychiatrist here that I think
does a good job with assessment and medication - have
not experienced with clients side effects as I have
read in some of these letters. Yeah, medications and
preventing decompensation once they are sober a while
and medications aren't preventing a bottoming out.
Treating the underlying mood disorder is correct, and
then wonder about that fine line of retriggering to
another set of disorder as PTSD. I guess the question
was asking for a "magic" answer of which there is none
yet. There is not a lot of DD tx facilities still.
I am thankful that we have a psychiatric unit in
our hospital.
