Co-Occurring Disorders (COD) is the combination of one or more mental health challenges and substance misuse/addiction. the harris project is the only non-profit in the nation committed to the prevention and treatment of COD.
Our mission is laser-focused. CODA, the peer-driven Co-Occurring Disorders Awareness prevention movement developed by the harris project, empowers youth with knowledge about how they and their peers might enter the substance misuse/addiction narrative. CODA encourages them to take an active role in connecting and supporting each other, as well as recognize the value of linking to resources (#CODAConnects #BeTheLink). With equal enthusiasm, the harris project collaborates with local and state government, agencies, providers, hospitals, community organizations, and higher education to transform the system of care to one that is integrated, complexity capable, and meets the co-occurring needs of the individual. This provides the best opportunity to achieve and sustain recovery.
