Full integration of mental health and chemical health treatment has been somewhat elusive. Models that have used serial treatment (treating one then the other disorder) or parallel treatment (attend separate treatments in the same time frame) do not achieve full integration. In recent years training programs and some limited treatment programs have been created from the ground up with full integration as the goal. The presented model is one such program.
