noncompliance led to worsened progress of the patient’s mental and physical disorders. A majority of the professionals, almost 70 percent, felt that a therapeutic alliance — the relationship between a client and a health care professional and how they interact with each other — was an approach that would improve diagnoses within the study’s population.

The study concluded that almost all the health care professionals included identified the presence of noncompliance in individuals with dual diagnoses.The lack of adherence was linked to a worsening of their dual diagnoses, which was noted through negative changes in psychopathology and relapse to substance use. As a result, the researchers proposed a need to identify and improve adherence strategies.
