The past two decades have provided an important direction for the development and provision of integrated services to people who have co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders (dual disorders). Several strategies for care are presently available that endorse a framework for service-system development and program development while others provide more direction for the provision of clinical treatment. These strategies include the following:

  • DDCAT | Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Treatment (DDCAT) Index
  • DDCMHT | Dual Diagnosis Capability in Mental Health Treatment (DDCMHT) Index
  • IDDT | Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT), the evidence-based practice

This Event | Program Leaders Training

This training event will provide supervisors and program managers with the opportunity to further explore DDCAT & DDCMHT and the planning and implementation processes associated with each—with an emphasis on application/implementation. Participants will also learn about the implications of DDCAT & DDCMHT for supervising improved treatment strategies and models of care for individuals with co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to ...

  • Describe Dual Diagnosis Capability (DDC) and enhanced treatment for integrated behavioral health settings
  • Discuss how DDCAT & DDCMHT components pertain to the structure and service delivery of your organization
  • Create a list of potential next steps my organization could take to improve its dual diagnosis treatment capability
  • Identify supervisory process enhancements necessary to reinforce dual diagnosis treatment capability in your organization
