Overview Paper 4: Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders in Non-Traditional Service Settings
Only about half of people with co-occurring disorders (COD) receive any services within substance abuse and mental health (SA/MH) settings. Settings outside the SA/MH system, or settings where service missions do not include a primary focus on COD, are the focus of this overview paper. Primary health, public safety and criminal justice, and social settings, where persons with COD are likely to be seen, are highlighted. These settings should be prepared to identify and effectively respond to persons with COD. The use of specialized techniques appropriate to these settings can increase the likelihood that the person with COD will access treatment.
