Advances in Dual Diagnosis: General Call for Papers

Advances in Dual Diagnosis (ADD) is an international applied research journal offering peer-reviewed, practical and thought-provoking content and a forum for topical debate on dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders).


ADD welcomes submissions from academics, practitioners, educationalists, managers and policy makers and those who deliver services to people living with a dual diagnosis. We also welcome submissions from people and their carers with lived experience of dual diagnosis.


We are particularly interested in receiving submissions on dual diagnosis, co-morbidities and co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders relating to the following topics:

  • Across the lifespan (older and younger people) and issues for particular demographics
  • Interface between dual diagnosis services and primary care
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Novel psychoactive substances
  • Pharmacological approaches 
  • Psychological interventions
  • Dual Diagnosis in developing countries
