with co-occurring mental health and

co-occurring substance use disorders. Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal, 27, 360–374.

Why is treatment for COD important?
During 1 week of 2003, in NYS:
• OMH programs: ~ 18% COD
• OASAS programs: ~ 30% COD
Conservative estimate because in our
programs, recording more than one diagnosis is
not required and is not usually done. Thus,
many people who present with both issues do
not receive diagnoses that reflect this reality.
The number of New Yorkers who can
benefit from treatment for COD is huge!

What learners are saying
“I love the trainings. They are so welcome
because it is difficult to get out of the office. I
enjoy learning more about substance abuse
and value the melding of the two disciplines.”
“Very clear, effective presentation
of different types of supervision.”
“I like the mix of video and text. The information
about stages of treatment and stages of change
gives one some very concrete information which I
can directly utilize when working with an
individual”
What learners are saying
“I like the way you showed a real person in a real
situation. It made it easy to identify with the person
and view their needs as able to be met in
manageable steps ... the steps of each module were
broken down to make them easy to learn,
manageable and much in the same way I would hope
I treat my clients.”
“This module addresses the critical issue of what
leadership should look like, and what a leader
should be doing. The sections about supervision
were excellent.”
“It reinforced my beliefs about what my agency needs to
do to move our integrated program forward.”
