Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment


Integrated Dual Disorder

Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) helps people who have a serious mental illness and who have a serious substance use diagnosis. Through the treatment, it is hoped that people will live independently in their community. The IDDT team will offer help that looks at all symptoms at the same time. The team may also help with community assistance that is needed to reach your goals.

  • Employment
  • Medication
  • Housing
  • Substance use issues
  • Physical and mental health symptoms
