This report provides data from a self-report survey of providers. Services for patients with co-occurring disorders differed widely. Services included referral to mental health programs as well as integrated treatment. A common barrier to providing services to people with co-occurring disorders was lack of psychiatric personnel and resources. These data are important for systems seeking to enhance co-occurring disorders services.
