CRJ 621 Co-Occurring Disorders (3 credits)

The widespread prevalence of individuals suffering from concurrent psychiatric and substance use disorders has been increasingly recognized within the behavioral healthcare field, with a consequent need for well-trained professionals to be proficient in dealing with these clients, as well as able to function competently in the sophisticated, multidisciplinary programs which are evolving to treat co-occurring disorders. This course will provide the requisite foundational knowledge and skills for the student who will be faced with these challenges. The focus will be on evaluation, treatment planning and delivery, case management, aftercare, and self-help recovery groups. The characteristics and unique needs of each disorder will be addressed, accompanied by an examination of the impact of substance abuse and addiction.
