For the purposes of this class, co-occurring disorders refers to co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. The class will focus on the interrelationship of these disorders and the differing needs of this population group. The class is structured to meet the needs of addiction counselors to aid in coordinating integrated treatment services to more effectively treat the whole person. It will discuss three types of substance abuse programs: addiction only services, dual diagnosis capable, and dual diagnosis enhanced. Evidence-based treatment approaches with co-occurring disorders will be presented along with elements of treatment planning, importance of diagnosis and the use of medications to enhance treatment. The primary resource is SAMHSA TIP 42 “Substance Abuse Treatment for Persons with Co-occurring Disorders.”
