Texas COSIG Project The goal of the COSIG project is to improve the delivery of state-funded services for clients in Texas with co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders (COPSD). The project consists of two components designed to promote system change and to enhance specialized clinical skills of providers treating COPSD.
COSIG Project Component #1 Focused education at the clinician level regarding treatment issues relevant to COPSD and training on the use of diagnostic and assessment instruments to enhance identification of psychiatric comorbidity and monitor progress of clients.
COPSD Curriculum Modules Module 1: Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders Module 2: Depression and Substance Use Disorders Module 3: Substance Use and Bipolar Disorders Module 4: Anxiety and Substance Use Module 5: Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective, and Substance Use Disorders Module 6: Substance Use – Motives and Consequences Module 7: Principles of Treatment Module 8: Relapse Prevention
