Webinar: Six Steps to Improve Your Drug Court Outcomes for Adults with Co-Occurring Disorders

18 Aug 2013

September 11, 2013 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

Treatment court professionals know that people with co-occurring disorders (COD) are among the most challenging groups of participants in their programs, and many are both “high risk and high need” offenders. NADCP and SAMHSA’s GAINS Center recently collaborated on the Fact Sheet “Six Steps to Improve Your Drug Court Outcomes for Adults with Co-Occurring Disorders” to assist drug courts and other treatment courts in effectively working with persons with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. This webinar features a nationally-recognized expert on persons with COD in the justice system, Dr. Roger Peters, of the University of South Florida, Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute. Dr. Peters has written numerous clinical and research articles on this topic and is a regular consultant to both NADCP and the GAINS Center. Dr. Peters will discuss the newly-released Fact Sheet document from NADCP and the GAINS Center, on which he is a co-author. This webinar addresses common concerns across all types of adult treatment courts including drug courts, mental health courts, veterans’ treatment courts, and DWI courts. In addition to his presentation, Dr. Peters will answer questions from webinar participants.
