Triad Women’s Project

About the Project

The Triad Women’s Project was developed through funding by the SAMHSA Collaborative for Women, Co-occurring Disorders & Violence Study. This $3.2 million, five-year project involved collaboration between community treatment providers, researchers, and consumers to develop and evaluate innovative services for women with histories of trauma and abuse who have co-occurring psychiatric and substance abuse disorders and who are high utilizers of mental health and substance abuse treatment services. Interventions developed for the project included integrated case management services, a curriculum-based women’s treatment group focused on substance abuse, mental health, and trauma issues, and a peer support group. These interventions were provided in jails, homeless shelters and domestic violence centers.
