Thesis examines the population that the Northwestern Ontario Concurrent Disorders Program serves, and the effectiveness of its' programming. Client symptom reporting, reported impact of substance use, number of hospitalizations, legal activity, residential status, education/employment activity and income level are used as measures of treatment success. Substance use in a psychiatric population lessens the effectiveness of treatment, increases the symptom severity and leads to less successful treatment outcomes.--Abstract.
