Co-Occurring Center for Excellence


The National Co-Occurring Center for Excellence (COCE), launched in 2004, is designed to support state and community-based efforts to provide effective treatment services to people with co-occurring substance abuse and mental disorders.

COCE technical assistance and cross-training is targeted to states currently receiving one of SAMHSA's State Incentive Grants for Treatment of Persons with Co-Occurring Substance Related and Mental Disorders (COSIG) grants. These grants, first awarded in 2003, are intended to improve states' abilities to provide integrated treatment services to people with co-occurring disorders.

In addition, COCE services are available to all other states, cities, counties, tribes and tribal organizations, community-based providers, educational establishments, criminal justice-related entities, and other social and public health providers seeking to enhance their ability to deal with individuals with co-occurring disorders.

On issues related to co-occurring disorders, COCE will provide technical assistance and cross-training on a range of topics; convene national and regional conferences, meetings, and workshops; conduct literature searches; and prepare analyses papers, articles, and conference presentations to disseminate state-of-the-art information on these issues.

A technical assistance Web site is forthcoming. For more information, contact COCE at (301) 951-3369, or
