The benefit of a primary care approach is greater attention to general health needs such as routine screening, women’s health, vaccinations, treatment of chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension and treatment of conditions like Hepatitis C and HIV.

The Role of Proper Medical Care in Long-Term Relapse Prevention
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that relapse rates for substance use disorder are between 40 and 60 percent, and other estimates have reported rates much higher than this. One of the primary drivers of these setbacks is the clinical disconnect that patients encounter when it comes time for them to get the care that they need for the lingering medical issues and withdrawal symptoms related to their drug or alcohol abuse. It can be incredibly difficult for individuals to thrive and rebuild their lives in recovery if they don’t have access to proper healthcare resources.
