Atypical relapses and unusually intense emotional pain in patients being treated for chemical dependency can alert clinicians to the possibility of comorbid dissociative disorders. The DES can be given as a simple screening instrument. Diagnoses should be based on a follow-up clinical interview and may be supported by administration of the DDIS or SCID-D. Referral for concurrent individual psychotherapy to a clinician knowledgeable about dissociative disorders is recommended.
