The Co-occurring Disorders Program (CDP) at Bradley Hospital is an intensive outpatient service that provides integrated care to adolescents who struggle with a wide variety of mental health as well as substance use issues. As leaders in addiction treatment and research, we are committed to providing adolescents and their families with the best available evidence-based therapies as well as access to clinical trials of innovative behavioral and pharmacological interventions.

Several evidence-based treatment modalities, including motivational enhancement and cognitive behavioral therapies, are integrated and tailored to meet the individuals needs of each youth.

What the Program at Bradley Hospital Offers

The CDP offers three hours of comprehensive care three days per week from a multidisciplinary team. This approach provides youth with intensive treatment while affording them the ability to attend school and practice newly acquired skills in their daily lives. In addition, this level of care provides youth and families with frequent access to a multidisciplinary team of specialists while teenagers are in the early stages of their recovery process.

Co-occurring Disorders Program Structure

For each youth, the CDP involves at least two individual therapy sessions and one family therapy session each week. In addition, all youth receive multiple daily group therapy sessions as well as weekly consultation with our physician.

Other program components include school consultation, case management, psychoeducational programming, and health promotion.

The length of the program varies from 5 to 8 weeks, depending on each youth’s success in achieving his or her treatment goals.
