WHAT IS ENHANCED ILLNESS MANAGEMENT & RECOVERY (E-IMR)?
An emerging evidence-informed intervention, Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery (E-IMR) helps practitioners integrate care for mental and substance use disorders. Innovative and effective, this new care model combines two proven practices: Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) and Illness Management and Recovery (IMR). Practitioners gain a shared language and proven strategies to use when delivering co-occurring disorder care. This new approach helps practitioners and the people they serve identify the interaction between substance use and mental illness. This simultaneous and integrated care delivers education and skills to address both disorders. A Minnesota pilot test demonstrated greater practitioner confidence and higher practitioner competence when using E-IMR.
