The World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control have long identified Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and Depression as major contributors to morbidity and mortality. SUD and mental illness are huge drivers of health care costs. These two personal and public health issues also deeply impact families and whole communities. Lack of access to competent primary care and lack of behavioral health integration keeps people sick.
CARMAhealth adopts a collaborative model of care that blends primary care medicine and behavioral health. We adopt a pragmatic, risk informed approach to care. Our goal is to create a medical home for our patients, their family and our community.
