This model has been adapted to address substance use disorders in primary medical settings. CoCM requires a team of providers; trained primary care providers (PCP) work with embedded behavioral health care managers (BHCM) to provide a range of effective treatments, including evidence-based medication and/or psychosocial treatments, and a psychiatric consultant who engages with the team primarily through indirect care. Implementation and clinical considerations for CoCM for substance use disorders will be reviewed.

This activity is accredited for physicians and other healthcare professionals.
