Co-Occurring Services

Substance Use Disorder (SUD) often occurs with chronic health conditions such as serious mental illness (SMI) or serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI) making treatment complex and at times very difficult for patients to access. Benefits with early detection and effective care coordination can enhance treatment options and drive better results for these very complex patients. HMA has solutions for the complex challenges of treating co-occurring SUD that support providers in building local patient-centered, evidence-based, sustainable and integrated practices across healthcare, crisis intervention, local law enforcement, justice, and other systems.
