How well does GCASA treat co-occurring disorders?

On Tuesday, April 27,2010, GCASA staff were interviewed by staff from the New York Health Center For Excellence In Integrated Care at the request of Ellery Reaves, the Director of Community Services For Genesee County to determine the degree to which GCASA does a good job in providing services to people who suffer from both substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. Combined disorders are called COD, Co-Occurring Disorders, or sometimes MICA, Mentally Ill Chemical Abuser.

Overall, GCASA does very well addressing co-occurring disorders as compared to other substance abuse agencies. The report states the GCASA performs above the state average.
