Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment: What Does It Look Like? (NWIAS Conference)

Join the Northwest ATTC at the Northwest Institute of Addition Studies 2019 conference!

Research indicates sequential treatment and parallel treatment for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders is not as effective as integrated treatment. Integrated treatment is the buzz word of the day; but what does integrated treatment really look like; and what is possible given funding restrictions and siloed services? This presentation will introduce participants to the Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Treatment (DDCAT) and Dual Diagnosis Capability in Mental Health Treatment (DDCMHT) organizational assessment instruments and toolkits for improving co-occurring disorder capability. The DDCAT is a widely used organizational measure to assess program and system capability to address co-occurring disorders. The trainer will share her experiences with working with several SUD provider organizations in WA who have used the DDCAT to improve their level of integration between SUD and MH services. Participants will have the opportunity to become familiar with the instruments and toolkits through small group discussions and hands-on activities.
