Integrating primary care services into behavioral health treatment settings may better prevent and address the physical co-morbidities that often accompany severe mental illnesses and addictive disorders. Other potential benefits of creating integrated systems in which primary care, mental health, and substance abuse services are meaningfully linked to treat the “whole” person may include the improvement of a patient’s retention in treatment programs & outcomes, improvement in overall health and functioning of recovering persons as a result of complex medical case management of substance-related and mental health problems, reduced utilization, and lower cost.
