Comorbidity Principles to Address the Needs of Persons with Co-Occurring Disorders
This overview paper outlines 12 overarching principles for working with persons with co-occurring disorders (COD). These principles are intended to help guide, but not define, systemic and clinical responses.

This course is based upon material published by SAMHSA and is in the public domain.
