Co-morbidity in patients admitted in OKANA
Summary:
The main objective of this postgraduate dissertation is to highlight the phenomenon of co-morbidity in the field of dependencies and the necessity to be counted towards the treatment of users. Our data, which were collected from a population of eight hundred and fifty-three (853) patients in the Athens Instant Access Unit (MIAP - beginning 2016 - February 2019), who received buprenorphine replacement therapy, show an increasing trend in the diagnosis of patients with co-morbidity. As the international literature points out, "problematic" users suffer from mental disorders, which are not diagnosed and therefore treated, so that proper assessment and hence treatment can not be made. However, co-morbidity management should be object of holistic treatment of the patient, because only then leads to better provision of health services and ultimately to more effective treatment.
