Information for Providers
Clinical Standards Manual
This Resource Manual has been produced by the Clinical Practices Committee of the Co-occurring State Integration Initiative (COSII) to provide accessible information about integrated, co-occurring treatment. It is meant to be useful to practitioners at all levels of care, in both adult and child services, as well as to administrators as they make decisions about policy, program changes, and staff training related to integration. We hope that it reflects a standard understanding of methods of practice from both the substance abuse and mental health disciplines as it focuses on merging those two perspectives into a broader model of integrated care.
