Centerstone Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment is for adults, age 18 and older, who have a mental illness and a substance use disorder. Evidence shows people with co-occurring disorders respond better when their therapy combines treatment for both.
Based on the Hazelden Co-Occurring Disorder Program, this approach to treatment recognizes there can be complex challenges for those with mental illness and ongoing substance abuse. Related issues that may be addressed include drug interaction, relapse and overlapping symptoms.
Substance use and mental illness can affect all areas of a person’s life - relationships, employment, finances, ability to sleep and overall happiness. Centerstone Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment helps individuals to recover and pursue meaningful life goals.
• Enhanced individual and group therapy
• Family education and counseling
• Case management
• Psychiatric evaluation to assess potential medication needs
• HIV testing for individuals and their partners
• Coordination of physical health services as needed
• Aftercare referral and supportive services
What to Expect
To enroll in Centerstone Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment, individuals will receive an initial assessment and evaluation. Based on each person’s specific needs, a treatment team consisting of a psychiatrist, nurse, nurse practitioner, therapist and case manager can be assigned. Together with the client, this team then creates an individualized treatment plan.
During treatment, participants will:
• Identify and develop personal recovery goals
• Receive treatment specifically designed for co-occurring disorders
• Learn more about how substance use can affect mental illness
• Receive supportive services that encourage recovery and independence
These services are offered for FREE to adults 18 and older who have co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders and reside in one of ten Middle Tennessee counties:
