Abstract: This review assesses the issues involved in the selection and treatment of patients comorbid for mental illness and substance misuse being treated in secure psychiatric facilities. It includes those individuals who have a history of offending and whose placement is the result of severe behavioral disturbance. The relevant issues in the assessment and treatment of these patients are reviewed and a battery of tests is suggested on the basis of their usefulness with this population in terms of their brevity, ease of administration, and for their value in planning treatment, providing motivational feedback, and monitoring change. The paucity of assessment tools developed specifically for this patient population is highlighted.
