There is emerging evidence for “third-wave therapies”, in treating mental health clients’ with comorbid for substance use.  However, implementation of manualised evidence based treatments is often hampered by the complexity of comorbidity. This project seeks to develop and pilot test a group based program combining Dialectical Behaviour Therapy-Substance Abuse (DBT-S), Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP), and Cognitive Behavioural Relapse Prevention. It is hypothesised that a modular practice elements approach such as this may enhance acceptability, integration and retention in treatment among comorbid clients.
