People with mental health and substance-use disorders die decades early due to chronic and often preventable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and obesity. These conditions can be aggravated by health habits that include tobacco use, low levels of physical activity, poor nutrition and substance use.
Integrated healthcare is the systematic coordination of services for:
- Mental health
- Substance use
- Primary Care
Coordinating these services leads to a better healthcare experience and increased health outcomes—and the cost is often lower than if these services were provided separately.
Cascadia’s integrated healthcare supports its consumers in being healthy and well.
