Supports and services for persons with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders must be the norm for all agencies across the network. It is more prevalent than addiction-only or mental illness-only among the people served by MDHHS providers. Practitioners in every program at all levels of care must be competent to address comorbidity in mental health and substance abuse treatment, as well as in the supports and services for developmental disabilities. COD competencies must be applied throughout the screening, intake and assessment, treatment planning, service and supports delivery processes. The “Co-Occurring College” is an annual staff training and development project that allows practitioners to select courses from the agenda that they feel will be most helpful in their personal and program development, and include administrative support, program development, quality improvement from outcome data, and practitioner competencies. The Co-Occurring College is not intended to be a regional conference but instead a number of courses that participants can pre-select, completing as many as they wish. The Co-Occurring College develops the curriculum for courses offered from polling the field to determine which topics are most wanted, and selects presenters based upon that information. Topics range from Prevalence of COD to treatment planning and use of data for improving outcomes.
