Collaborative Care for Substance Use Disorders
Aug 31st, 2017 by medicalmind
The collaborative care model is designed to increase access to mental health care by treating common conditions in primary care settings, which are often the front lines for diagnosing depression, anxiety, and PTSD. In light of the growing demand for treatment of substance use disorders, we explore the potential impact of the collaborative care model, since substance use disorders are also often first identified in a primary care setting.
