Abstract: This article explores the need for evidence based practice in the fields of Recreational Therapy and Occupational Therapy. Through the use of various evidence based articles the author explores current research in both fields to validate the effectiveness of different interventions used in treatment. Based on the findings and the use of a case study, the author determines the effectiveness of Recreational and Occupational therapy services in an in-patient psychiatric setting with dual-diagnosis patients. Though the study was short-term, patient goals were met during the case study and treatment interventions were proven effective. The author gives recommendations for the agency as well as therapists in general as there is a large need for more research involving therapy with dual diagnosis patients.
