Challenges and Treatment for Persons with Co-Occurring Disorders


Presented by Terri Cooley Bennett, LCSW, LSCSW, CCDP-D

6.0 Clock Hours


A challenging population to treat is persons with Co-occurring Disorders (COD).  Research has focused on considerations regarding treatment.  A frequent consideration is whether to treat the substance use disorder first, the mental health disorder first, or whether to treat both at the same time. There has been some disagreement regarding best practices.  According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA)(2005), Co-occurring Disorders is called “The Evolving Field”.  SAMSHA (2005) states that, “The multiple studies reflect the extent to which COD constitutes a clinical concern.”  It seems to be agreed that further research is needed in this field.  This workshop will define co-occurring disorders and examine best practices. DSM-5 criteria for substance use disorders will be reviewed along with common co-morbidities and substance-induced disorders.  Current research and treatment methodology, as well a clinical cases will be reviewed and discussed. 


Educational Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to define what constitutes a co-occurring disorder and will be able to identify common comorbidities
  2. Participants will be given an over-view of DSM-5 Substance Use Disorders and will discuss Substance-Induced Disorders
  3. Participants will be educated on the current research and best practices regarding treatment
  4. Participants will be able to bring clinical cases to their peers and to the instructor for feedback
