Monarch, Cone Health Foundation to Address Co-Occurring Disorders in Greensboro

Monarch has received a $194,500 three-year grant from Cone Health Foundation in Greensboro to enhance treatment for individuals with co-occurring disorders.  Research has shown that as many as 50 percent of people with a severe mental disorder also have a co-occurring substance use disorder. In Guilford County, as many as 33,000 individuals may experience co-occurring disorders.

With that in mind, Cone Health Foundation has launched a Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Initiative, bringing together leading community providers to assess evidence-based practice models for treating co-occurring disorders and to implement those models in greater Greensboro. Members of the Initiative will work collaboratively with the Foundation to increase community-wide capacity to treat co-occurring disorders.  “This grant and our partnership with Cone Health Foundation will enable us to provide high-quality treatment for those we support who have co-occurring disorders,” said Blake Martin, Monarch’s chief development officer. “We are grateful for the opportunity to implement new models of care that will better help us treat the whole person.”

The Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment Initiative launched on Oct. 1. Cone Health Foundation has at its mission to invest in the development and support of activities, programs and organizations that measurably improve the health of people in the Greater Greensboro area.
