Program Summary

Research demonstrates that persons with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders occur more often than not. Yet, our treatment approach is developed as if this is a rare circumstance. To effectively treat persons with co-occurring disorders it is necessary to expect persons to have dual disorders and treat them in one location, by one person or team of persons, in a welcoming and hopeful approach.

For systems to achieve a high level of effective treatment for persons with co-occurring disorders a systems change effort is required. The Comprehensive, Continuous Integrated System of Care (CCISC, Minkoff and Cline) is the most widely known change strategy. Through this change activity, co-occurring capable and co-occurring advanced treatment can be developed.
