Mental and substance use conditions often co-occur. This is known as "co-occurring disorders" or, alternately, "dual diagnosis." Integrating treatment is an effective approach to promoting recovery.
IRETA offers training and extensive resources related to co-occurring disorders and effective treatment methods to address clients with dually-diagnosed mental health and substance use disorders.
