Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has substantial empirical support for the treatment of people with severe and persistent mental illnesses. Efforts to integrate this type of therapy into psychiatric rehabilitation practices are growing. This paper describes an innovative integration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy into a psychiatric rehabilitation day program attended by people with severe and persistent mental illnesses and frequently co-occurring substance use disorders. The challenges of maintaining the cognitive model and other core features of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in a heterogeneous, large, group-based program are discussed.
