Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders (COD) often present difficulties for our most knowledgeable and well-trained behavioral health professionals.
The treatment of individuals suffering with COD is further complicated by the fact that many professionals have little time to increase their knowledge in assessing and treating co-occurring disorders.
Whether you need to take a step back to examine your own personal beliefs about serving clients with COD, strengthen coordination for additional services, collaborate with other providers and make appropriate referrals, this training will assist your professional efforts in delivering effective strategies while serving the COD population.
