CCSME directed the Collaborative and Enhanced Community Care Service component of the Dual Disorders Service Integration and Reimbursement Demonstration Project and assisted with writing the grant.

This project served as an umbrella for the implementation of Maine Medical Center’s ACCESS (ACT) Team, the first integrated co-occurring ACT team in Maine providing services to individuals with substance use disorders and Axis I and/or Axis II psychiatric disorders. The Maine Office of Substance Abuse, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Bingham Program funded the project for three years at an annual rate of $500,000.
