Summary

The collaborative process involved in developing this report to Congress is a key initial step in addressing co-occurring substance abuse disorders and mental disorders. Over the next 5 years, SAMHSA will help States, tribes and communities - together with consumers/recovering persons, family members, providers, advocates, researchers, and Federal partners - promote accountability, capacity, and effectiveness in the prevention and treatment of co-occurring disorders. This report is a call to action for all whose lives are touched by people who have co-occurring substance abuse disorders and mental disorders.
