The document provides evidence-based recommendations for assessing and treating co-occurring conditions, with a focus on reducing the risk of suicide. The guide also emphasizes the importance of developing a supportive and collaborative therapeutic relationship with the individual in treatment, as well as involving their family and loved ones in the treatment process. TIP 50 outlines several key strategies for addressing suicidal thoughts and behaviors in individuals with substance use disorders, including comprehensive assessment, safety planning, and integrated treatment. The guide also recommends the use of evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to address both substance use and suicidal thoughts/behaviors.
