A Comprehensive Program
for the Integrated Treatment of Co-occurring Disorders

Research has shown that the most effective treatment for co-occurring disorders is an integrated approach that treats substance use and mental health disorders at the same time.

Co-occurring Disorders ProgramThe Hazelden Co-occurring Disorders Program is the first comprehensive program that provides the best integrated treatment services for people with non-severe psychiatric disorders that co-occur with substance use disorders.

This integrated treatment approach helps people recover by offering both mental health and substance use services at the same time and in one setting.

Evidence-Based

Based on Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment Model

The Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center developed and tested the Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment (IDDT) model, an established evidence-based practice designed for people with severe mental health disorders.

The Hazelden Co-occurring Disorders Program draws on the numerous randomized controlled trials using the IDDT model and adapts them for patients with non-severe mental health disorders.

Authors

The Hazelden Co-occurring Disorders Program was developed by leaders in the research and treatment of co-occurring disorders.

The program authors are faculty members of the Dartmouth Medical School.

Goals

The primary goal of the Hazelden Co-occurring Disorders Program is to offer current information and proven tools to treat non-severe co-occurring disorders.

The Hazelden Co-occurring Disorders Program:

  • Helps program directors assess and expand the capabilities of their current organization
  • Offers clinicians an easy-to-use treatment program with tools that give clients and their families necessary services and support
  • Integrates the most current best practices and therapies in the field, such as motivational enhancement therapy (MET), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and Twelve Step facilitation (TSF)

The program also offers:

  • Effective customizable strategies to treat clients' specific co-occurring disorders
  • Evidence-based strategies and standardized best practices for treatment, mental health, and criminal justice
  • Tools to help sustain clinicians' confidence and skills to assess and treat patients' co-occurring disorders
  • Benchmarks to transform Addiction Only Services (AOS) or Mental Health Only Services (MHOS) to Dual Diagnosis Capable (DDC), and to transform a DDC program to Dual Diagnosis Enhanced (DDE) treatment
  • Manualized integrated treatment interventions that educate and train new staff to treat both substance use and mental health disorders
  • A DVD presentation that allows clients and family members to access the same educational information offered to clinicians and other health care professionals. This approach supports a key concept of effective treatment in which all participants are equal shareholders in deciding the most appropriate integrated treatment plan
  • Screening and assessment measures to distinguish between drug-induced mental health problems and psychiatric morbidity and to help determine effective pharmacotherapy and psychosocial interventions
