You have to be extremely unwell to be admitted to an acute psychiatric ward as the number of beds shrink year on year. Using substances is one factor that is associated with requiring hospital admission rather than community treatment. As Hermine Graham, the lead author of a recent study points out, admission can be a ‘window of opportunity’ to explore and discuss substance use with the client as a trigger factor that led to hospital admission (Graham et al, 2015).
