Despite the magnitude of the problem, and even when alcohol and drug problems are identified, health care professionals may be reluctant to respond appropriately because of negative attitudes towards substance misusers. Social prejudice, negative attitudes and stereotyped perceptions of substance misusers and dual-diagnosis patients are held widely amongst health care professionals and this may lead to minimal care being given to this population (Rassool 1998, Selleck and Redding 1998, Williams 1999, Richmond and Foster 2003).
