1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Psychotherapy of patients with personality disorder and concomitant substance dependence requires an integrative approach. Although a number of studies have evaluated psychotherapy for one of these disorders, only few studies have described the effectiveness of treatment programs in comorbid patients. These limited findings provide a basis for the further development of treatments for personality disorder and concomitant substance dependence. This review gives an overview of the current state of research in this field.
