Under the general direction of the Director of Adult Services and with a dotted line responsibility to the Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT) Team medical staff, the IDDT Team Coordinator shall head a team of approximately 4-6 staff members whose primary responsibilities are to provide intensive community based mental health services to individuals who are diagnosed with co-occurring severe mental illness and substance use disorders.
The coordinator is responsible to “team build,” which includes selection and training of appropriate staff. The coordinator is responsible to understand the philosophy behind IDDT as an evidenced-based practice (EBP) and to implement this practice with the treatment team while adhering to fidelity of the treatment model.

Evidenced-based practices (EBP) such as illness management and recovery (IMR) and supported employment are expected treatments, with technical assistance and training currently being provided by Case Western Reserve University as part of the region’s engagement in the 1115 Medicaid Demonstration Waiver happening in NH.
Service provision to IDDT will be tailored to individual patient need and may include, but is not limited to individual and group treatment tools such as:
- therapeutic behavioral services
- medication supports
- family supports
- crisis intervention services.
