Synopsis: Using data provided from multiple perspectives (state and family), this paper highlights that statistics indicate that co-occurring mental health and substance abuse problems are the rule rather than the exception to the rule. We begin by providing an overarching framework to the importance of assessing and treating co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders within a system of care/family-centered framework. We then describe the North Carolina Adolescent Substance Use Treatment Project and the data projects currently ongoing in North Carolina. Qualitative data from focus groups with youth and families will be presented and will describe what families say they want in terms of substance abuse treatment within a child and family team. Audience members will receive handouts and suggestions for recommended readings and toolkits related to treating children and families with co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders within a system of care framework.
