Co-Occurring Psychiatric Substance Abuse Disorder (COPSD)
San Antonio Community Resource Directory
COVID-19 Notice

Our clinics will be operating under normal business hours while we increase cleanings and screenings within our facilities.

Substance use disorders are common among people with serious mental illnesses and put people at risk for many other problems. Many people with psychiatric symptoms choose to self-medicate to alleviate their pain and can develop addiction to drugs and alcohol. If both substance use and mental health illness co-occur, judgement is impaired and individuals are more vulnerable to unpredictable outcomes.

COPSD is a team of Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors (LCDC) who help individuals develop knowledge, hope, skills, and support needed to manage dual diagnosis.

Case Management includes:

  • Working with qualified and trained specialist to address dual diagnosis
  • Coaching
  • Advocacy
  • Linking to recommended community resources such as mental health evaluation
  • Referrals
  • Team meetings to review progress
  • Interim counseling
