The importance of identifying and addressing mental health issues in a substance use disorder treatment setting is essential to improving the overall outcomes for participants. Initiating early detection and intervention for those that have a co-occurring disorder is crucial and we now know that treatment works best if we are addressing both the substance use AND the mental health disorder during the treatment process. According to SAMHSA, the most effective dual diagnosis regimen treats both the mental illness and substance issues at the same time. This online learning series will provide 16 hours of instruction and will include blended activities of virtual online groups and self-study related to understanding and integrating Mental Health Disorder knowledge into the provision of Substance Use Disorder treatment. This will include interactive discussions, videos, performance based feedback, articles, and activities.
