Synopsis: The Integrated Co-Occurring Treatment model (ICT) is a promising new treatment model for youth with co-occurring disorders of substance abuse and mental illness. The ICT model is a comprehensive, home-based intervention model, based on system of care principles. In addition, ICT incorporates factors of risk and resilience in building a recovery model for youth. ICT was developed beginning in 1999 and has been piloted for four years in an urban community setting. ICT has application with youth involved in the juvenile justice system and has specific components specific to this population. Results from the four year pilot will be presented.
