Course Description


Historically, clinicians focused on mental health and substance use disorders independently. Over the years, we have realized through research that these disorders often overlap making recovery for individuals more difficult. Currently, there are over 7 million adults dealing with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders. Actively combining interventions intended to address all disorders and related issues allows us to treat the whole person more effectively. This training focuses on culturally competent identification of the characteristics of co-occurring disorders (COD) and evidence-based models for concurrent and collaborative treatment. In addition, we will review how COVID-19 has impacted individuals with COD, as well as effective strategies to utilize during this stressful time.

Course Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify characteristics of co-occurring disorders (COD).
  • Understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on individuals dealing with COD.
  • List the guiding principles necessary to work effectively with individuals with COD.
  • Identify the best interventions to utilize when working with individuals with COD.
