Definition: Co-occurring Disorders The term refers to co-occurring substance use (abuse or dependence) and mental disorders. Clients said to have co-occurring disorders have one or more mental disorders as well as one or more disorders relating to the use of alcohol and/or other drugs. A diagnosis of a co-occurring disorder (COD) occurs when at least one disorder of each type can be established independently of the other and is not simply a cluster of symptoms resulting from a single disorder.
Co-Occurring Disorders Epidemiology What do we know about Co-Occurring Disorders?
Co-Occurring Disorders We know that co-occurring disorders are increasing becoming the expectation rather than the exception.
6 Co-Occurrence of SMI and Substance Use Disorders among Adults Aged 18 or Older: Million 15.4 Million Co-Occurring Disorders Substance Use Disorder Only SMI Only 4.2 Million * NSDUH 2003
Co-Occurrence of SPD and Substance Use Disorder in the Past Year among Adults Aged 18 or Older: Million 19.4 Million Co-Occurring SUD and SPD Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Only Serious Psychological Distress (SPD) Only 5.2 Million Up by 1 million in 2 years
Substance Use among Adults Aged 18 or Older, by Major Depressive Episode in the Past Year: 2005
Substance Use among Youths Aged 12 to 17, by Major Depressive Episode in the Past Year: 2005 Percent Using Substance Past Year Illicit Drug Use Daily Cigarette Use in Past Month Past Month Heavy Alcohol Use Past Year Marijuana Use Past Year Psycho- therapeutics Use
Co-Occurring Psychiatric Problems Source: CSAT AT Outcome Data Set (n=9,276 adolescents)
Co-Occurring Disorders Expected rather than the Exception We know that individuals with a co-occurring disorder are less likely to receive treatment for BOTH disorders.
Past Year Treatment among Adults Aged 18 or Older with Both Serious Psychological Distress and a Substance Use Disorder: 2005 Substance Use Treatment Only 5.2 Million Adults with Co-Occurring SPD and Substance Use Disorder Treatment for Both Mental Health and Substance Use Problems No Treatment 34.3% 53.0% 8.5% 4.1% Treatment Only for Mental Health Problems Note: Due to rounding, these percentages do not add to 100 percent.
Mean Age for Past Year Initiates, by Illicit Drug: 2004 Age Marijuana Heroin Pain Relievers Cocaine LSD TranquilizersPCP EcstasyInhalants Stimulants Sedatives NSDUH, 2004
Past Month Illicit Drug Use among Persons Aged 12 or Older, by Age: 2004 Percent Using in Past Month Age in Years
Co-Occurring Disorders Expected rather than the Exception American Indian/Alaskan Native Communities face unique challenges with co-occurring substance abuse and psychological conditions Historical trauma Stigma / Discrimination Preserving cultural healing traditions Multiple funding streams / delivery systems for behavioral health services
Substance Use and AI/AN Rates of past year use disorders were higher among American Indians and Alaska Natives than members of other racial groups for alcohol, illicit drug use, marijuana, cocaine, and hallucinogen use disorders. Although in the past year American Indians and Alaska Natives were less likely than persons of other racial backgrounds to have used alcohol (60.8% vs. 65.8%), they were more likely to have an alcohol use disorder (10.7% vs. 7.6%). For illicit drug use in the past year, American Indians and Alaska Natives were more likely than persons of other racial backgrounds both to have used an illicit drug (18.4% vs. 14.6%) and to have an illicit drug use disorder (5.0% vs. 2.9%). NSDUH 2005

Received Substance Use Treatment in the Past Year among Persons Aged 12 or Older, by Race: 2004 Percentage
Substance Dependence or Abuse in the Past Year among Persons Aged 12 or Older, by Race: 2004 Percentage
Substance Abuse Individuals with alcohol and drug problems Prevalence rates for current alcohol abuse and/or dependence among Northern Plains and Southwestern Vietnam veterans have been estimated to be as high as 70% compared to % of their white, black, and Japanese American counterparts. The estimated rate of alcohol-related deaths for AI/AN is much higher than for the general population.
Mental health Exposure to trauma The rate of violent victimization of AI/AN is more than twice the national average Higher rate of traumatic exposure - 22% rate of PTSD for AI/AN, compared to 8% in the general U.S. population
Mental health Availability of Mental Health Services Approximately 101 AI/AN mental health professionals are available per 100,000 AI/AN, compared to 173 per 100,000 for whites. In 1996, only about 29 psychiatrists in the U.S. were of AI/AN heritage.
Mental health Access to Mental Health Services The Indian Health Service (IHS) is the Federal agency responsible for providing health care to Native populations 20% of AI/AN report access to IHS clinics, which are located mainly on reservations
Mental health Medicaid is the primary insurer for 25% of AI/AN Approximately 50% of AI/AN have employer- based insurance coverage, compared to 72% of whites 24% of AI/AN have no health insurance, compared to 16% of the U.S. population
Risk and Protective Factors for Substance Use among American Indian or Alaska Native Youths American Indian or Alaska Native youths were more likely to perceive moderate to no risk of substance use A larger percentage of American Indian or Alaska Native youths did not perceive strong parental disapproval of youth substance use than youths in other racial/ethnic groups American Indian or Alaska Native youths were more likely to believe that all or most of the students in their school get drunk at least once a week NSDUH
SAMHSA Response to address the Co-occurring Disorders
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Initiatives Report To Congress (2002) Federal Leadership Cross Agency Matrix Action Plan Co-occurring State Incentive Grants Co-occurring Center for Excellence Key publications: TIP 42/COD Toolkits Co-occurring Policy Academies
Congress called on SAMHSA to prepare a report outlining the scope of the problem of co- occurring disorders, current treatment approaches, best practice models, and prevention efforts. This report was mandated to include: · a summary of the manner in which individuals with co-occurring disorders are receiving treatment, · a summary of practices for preventing substance abuse disorders among individuals who have a mental illness and are at risk of having or acquiring a substance abuse disorder; · a summary of evidence-based practices for treating individuals with co-occurring disorders and recommendations for implementing such practices; and · a summary of improvements necessary to ensure that individuals with co-occurring disorders receive the services they need.
Released November 2002 Raised the awareness of Co-occurring Disorders Included a Five-Year Blueprint for Action SAMHSA adopted road map to address Co- occurring Disorders Report to Congress on the Prevention and Treatment of Co-Occurring Substance Abuse Disorders and Mental Disorders

“No Wrong Door” Policy Each provider should be aware that he/she has the responsibility to address the range of client needs… wherever a client presents for care whenever a client presents for care properly refer clients for appropriate care as needed follow-up on referrals to ensure clients received proper care
SAMHSA Co-occurring Matrix Action Plan FY 2006/2007: Purpose To expand and improve prevention, appropriate treatment and other supportive services to individuals with and/or at risk for co-occurring disorders. Approximately 5.2 million individuals in the United States are estimated to be affected by co- occurring mental and substance abuse disorders. However, only a small percentage of these individuals receive treatment that addresses both disorders.
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Matrix Action Plan Long Term Measures Increase the percentage of persons with co-occurring disorders who receive appropriate treatment services that address both disorders. Increase the percentage of adolescents aged 12 – 17 who receive appropriate prevention services that address substance abuse and mental health. Increase the percentage of persons who experience reduced impairment from their co-occurring disorders following appropriate treatment.
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Matrix Action Plan: Outcome / Annual Measures Increased percent of prevention and treatment settings that: –screen for co-occurring disorders –assess for co-occurring disorders –provide treatment to clients through collaborative, consultative and integrated models of care
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Matrix Action Plan: Outcome / Annual Measures Increase the number of grantees (States, Tribes, communities, and providers) measuring and reporting on co-occurring programs, practices, and models of treatment (accountability) Increase the number of States and Tribes with State or Tribal-Level actions plans for improving access to mainstream and specialty services for individuals with co- occurring disorders(capacity) Increase the number of people trained to implement appropriate co-occurring prevention and integrated treatments among States, communities, providers and consumers (effectiveness)
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Action Plan: FY Key Activities Ensure that co-occurring disorders are a significant focus in the following major grant programs, as appropriate: Mental Health Systems Transformation SIG, Access to Recovery, and the Strategic Prevention Framework SIG Monitor the extent to which the Co-Occurring State Incentive Grant (COSIG) addresses those populations prioritized on the SAMHSA Matrix that are appropriate and relevant to the programs within the matrix area Create and disseminate a nationally accepted framework for developing, implementing, and sustaining co-occurring disorders prevention and treatment service systems.
SAMHSA Co-Occurring Matrix Action Plan: FY Key Activities -continued Increase the number of candidate programs addressing co-occurring disorders that apply for review to the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) addressing co-occurring disorders Hold a policy academy for Tribal organizations, tribal communities, and tribal governments to assist in developing and sustaining service systems for the unique needs of AI/AN with and at risk for co-occurring disorders and for interested States who have not participate in a policy academy to date.

Co-Occurring Disorders: Expected rather than the Exception National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders
The purpose of the National Policy Academy on Co- Occurring Mental and Substance Abuse Disorders is to enhance the provision of co-occurring services in States, Tribes and communities. The Policy Academy brings together Teams comprised of individuals with policy-making influence in conjunction with nationally recognized faculty and facilitators who assist the Teams to develop a comprehensive Action Plan to enhance the provision of, and expand access to, effective prevention, treatment, and related services for co-occurring disorders within their jurisdiction.
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders The overarching goal of SAMHSA’s National Policy on Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Disorders is to enhance the provision of co-occurring services in States, Tribes and communities. This goal is supported by four objectives of the Policy Academy.
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Objectives To assist States, Tribes and local policymakers in the development of an Action Plan intended to improve access to appropriate services for people with co-occurring substance use and mental disorders; To create and/or reinforce relationships among the Governor’s office, Legislators, Government and local program administrators, and stakeholders from the public and private sectors; To provide an environment conducive to the process of strategic decision-making within the context of co-occurring disorders; and To assist State, Tribal and local policymakers in identifying issues or areas of concern that may result in a formal request for technical assistance.
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders The Policy Academy model sequential process: 1.Pre-meeting work, a technical assistance site visit, and SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) analysis 2.Formal Academy meeting (on-site “live” technical assistance) 3.Post-meeting technical assistance and follow-up 4.Ongoing implementation (on-site technical assistance)
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Strategic / specialized technical assistance approach Not a grant program - no new funding for services Focus on improving services for people with co-occurring disorders Innovation in health care reimbursement Focus on prevention / recovery Evidence of partnership with substance abuse and mental health treatment systems
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Desired Outcomes Operationalize “No Wrong Door” for all people with co-occurring disorders Culturally relevant and appropriate service systems Building partnership across mental health and and substance abuse prevention services & treatment systems Identify institutionalized barriers and develop strategies to overcome
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Cohort I (April 2004)—Alabama; Arizona; Connecticut; Hawaii; Louisiana; Maine; Michigan; Missouri; North Carolina; South Dakota Cohort II (Jan 2005)—California; Georgia; Illinois; Iowa; New Mexico; Oklahoma; Texas; Virginia; Washington Cohort III (Sept. 2005)—Delaware; Indiana; Kansas; Maryland; Montana; New York; Ohio; Rhode Island; Tribal Policy Academy (Sept. 2007)
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Key Program Accomplishments Much of the success of the Policy Academy is that it transcends a typical strategic planning retreat or a conference, in that it seeds a process of cross-agency collaboration and systems change. The design facilitates leaders, policy makers and advocates from each Team to build on its strengths, develop policy strategies and implement action plans for transforming practice before, during, and after the Academy meeting.
National Policy Academy on Co-Occurring Disorders Key Program Accomplishments (cont.) Locally defined shared vision Innovative financing strategies and leverage existing resources Culturally relevant approach Cross sector policy makers / providers / stakeholders working together
