Evaluation Primer

There are limited resources and information on concurrent substance use disorders and schizophrenia, particularly from a Canadian perspective. Access to information about treatment programs and health professionals across the country is not centralized or coordinated. Given the complexities of concurrent schizophrenia and substance use disorder, from a treatment and diagnostic perspective, the need for centralized, up to-date information is critical. This evaluation primer is a tool that can be used by practitioners to assess the effectiveness of the services and programs they offer and, in so doing, build best practices for the field.
