Introduction to Integrated Dual Disorders Treatment

This 6-hour online course will help clinicians develop a thorough understanding of the skills required to integrate treatment, giving people with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders the best chance of recovery.

An updated and expanded version of IDDT, now available from Hazelden, is redesigned not only to more effectively teach clinical skills and provide practitioners with resources and tools for their practice, but also to offer the guidance to administrators and supervisors necessary to align the work of departments and transform agencies into integrated treatment providers.

User-friendly package

This newly formatted, user-friendly package far surpasses its predecessors by

  • incorporating a decade of current, up-to-date research-the most comprehensive and best information available today in the field
  • providing topics of training and consultation in a unique chapter not found in other publications
  • identifying and developing the tasks necessary to ensure fully integrated treatment takes root and grows successfully in any organization
  • offering many reproducible forms, protocols, and handouts to facilitate practice implementation
  • addressing a wider array of issues and topics more comprehensively
  • using agency-friendly language to ensure practitioners, supervisors, clinical leadership, and other professionals will find the program approachable and easy to use

State-of-the-art instructional design provides practitioners all the materials needed for successful integration of these evidence-based practices. Created to stand on its own or to work hand-in-hand with training programs and curricula for assuring best practices in the treatment of severe mental illness, IDDT offers the tools necessary for professionals to work together in effectively serving clients across the continuum of care.
