Course Description:
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. They are grouped according to whether they guide systems of care or individual providers and can be used as benchmarks to assess whether plans in development, or programs in operation, are grounded in the field’s best thinking. 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 specialists, recovery residence administrators and substance abuse professionals, who do clinical work. This course is appropriate for beginning level practitioners who wish to develop their knowledge about substance abuse treatment.
