Helping practitioners treat the interaction between substance use and mental illness

An emerging evidence-informed intervention, Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery (E-IMR) helps practitioners integrate care for mental and substance use disorders. Innovative and effective, this new care model combines two proven practices: Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) and Illness Management and Recovery (IMR). Practitioners gain a shared language and proven strategies to use when delivering care to individuals with co-occurring disorders (CODs). This new approach helps practitioners, and the individuals they serve, identify the interaction between substance use and mental illness. This individualized and integrated care delivers education and skills to address both disorders. E-IMR can be implemented in either mental health or substance use treatment settings.

Train individually or as a team. Minnesota Center for Chemical and Mental Health offers E-IMR training via video or in person to meet your specific needs. Learn more below, or take a look at an overview of E-IMR training.
