Understanding Addiction

The term “co-occurring disorders” refers to co-occurring substance use (abuse or dependence) and mental disorders. Clients said to have co-occurring disorders (abbreviated as COD) have one or more mental disorders as well as one or more disorders relating to the use of alcohol and/or other drugs.

By the 1990s, substance abuse treatment programs typically reported that 50 to 75 percent of clients had co-occurring mental disorders, while clinicians in mental health settings reported that between 20 and 50 percent of their clients had a co-occurring substance use disorder.

The objective of this course is to use the TIP 42 Quick Guide to highlight the major developments in the addiction treatment field relating to co-occurring disorders, in an effort to help substance abuse and mental health professionals develop a plan for a more integrated treatment community that can better address the needs of clients with COD.
