The Co-Occurring Disorders Learning Community is a practice improvement initiative to address an area critical to mental health and addiction organizations, their communities, and the individuals they served – co-occurring mental health and addictions.


Co-Occurring Disorders Learning Community’s Core Elements
  • Access to curriculum and leading experts involved in providing effective integrated treatment of co-occurring disorders and organizational change management
  • Baseline and follow-up assessment of co-occurring disorder treatment capacity using the Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Treatment and the Dual Diagnosis for Mental Health Treatment
  • Implementation of a rapid cycle change quality improvement process that provides goals and action steps to improve capacity to provide services to people with co-occurring disorders

Learning Community participants are engaged in virtual (web and phone-based) technical assistance from national experts, and outcome data management through a web portal.
