Pathways' Intensive Outpatient Co-Occurring Disorders (COD) Treatment program addresses the relationship between mental health and substance abuse. They often intertwine as a person tries to deal with the pressures of life, attempting to maintain balance in a stressful world.

Changing Patterns
It's long been recognized that repeating old behaviors and expecting different results doesn't work. Pathways uses the following approaches to help its clients change their thinking and behaviors and teaches adaptive coping skills that enable them to maintain balance and stability in their mental and chemical health:

Examining Self - Individual Therapy
Incorporating individual therapy into the process of self-examination can be valuable in staying on-track with making life changes. Each client participant meets with a supportive and objective professional who will help facilitate the process. If the client doesn't currently have an individual therapist, Pathways' COD therapist will be engaged.

Sharing Wisdom - Group Therapy
Participants in the program have the opportunity to share their wisdom and gain knowledge from others through the group therapy process. They observe that many people in the group have similar experiences, concerns, and frustrations.

Gaining Knowledge - Skills Groups
Mental health professionals and practitioners provide information and education about mental and chemical health. Their education and experience working with hundreds of people who have experienced mental illness and substance abuse enables Pathways' staff to teach the skills needed to change behaviors and live independently.

Practicing Skills - ARMHS in the Community
All participants in the COD program will work with an ARMHS (Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services) practitioner outside of COD treatment to practice the skills introduced and learned within the program. Collaboration with COD program staff will occur formally and informally through involvement with developing treatment plans and updates on client progress and skill-building activity.

Addressing Barriers - COD Counselor
While in the Program, participants may have concerns that get in the way of their ability to focus on learning skills and changing patterns. Our COD Counselor will be available to work with the individual to address and resolve those. Knowledge of program content will allow for the emphasis and practicing of skills that are being learned by the client participant within the context of addressing barriers to treatment.

All Participants in Pathways' Intensive Outpatient Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Program:

  • Have a diagnosis of a Severe Mental Illness and acknowledgement of substance abuse issues.
  • Are 18 or older.
  • Have been determined through a mental health diagnostic assessment by a Mental Health Professional to be qualified to receive these medically necessary services.
