Course Description:
Screening, assessment, and treatment planning constitute three interrelated components of a process that, when properly executed, informs and guides the provision of appropriate, client-centered services to persons with co-occurring disorders (COD). Clients with COD are best served through an integrated screening, assessment, and treatment planning process that addresses both substance use and mental disorders, each in the context of the other. This paper discusses the purpose, appropriate staffing, protocols, methods, advantages and disadvantages, and processes for integrated screening, assessment, and treatment planning for persons with COD as well as systems issues and financing. This course is based upon material published by SAMHSA and is in the public domain.

This course on co-occurring disorders is designed for peer support counselors, recovery residence administrators, substance abuse counselors, and paraprofessionals who want to work in substance abuse treatment. This course is appropriate for beginning level practitioners.
