Up to 56 percent of people with the most serious mental illnesses have a co-occurring substance use disorder within their lifetime (Regier et al., 1990). Therefore, within specialty mental health and substance use clinical settings, it is the norm rather than the exception to see consumers with co-occurring disorders. Practitioners in the Integrated Treatment program (called integrated treatment specialists) develop integrated treatment plans and treat both serious mental illnesses and substance use disorders so that consumers do not get lost, excluded, or confused going back and forth between different mental health and substance abuse programs.
