Co-Occurring Psychiatric Substance Use Disorder (COPSD)

(210) 246-1360

Substance use disorders are common among people with serious mental illnesses and put people at risk for many other problems. Many people with psychiatric symptoms choose to self-medicate to alleviate their pain and can develop addiction to drugs and alcohol. If both substance use and mental health illness co-occur, judgement is impaired and individuals are more vulnerable to unpredictable outcomes.

COPSD is a team of Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors (LCDC) who help individuals develop knowledge, hope, skills, and support needed to manage dual diagnosis.

Case Management includes:

  • Working with qualified and trained specialist to address dual diagnosis
  • Coaching
  • Advocacy
  • Linking to recommended community resources such as mental health evaluation
  • Referrals
  • Team meetings to review progress
  • Interim counseling
