Practicing Recovery: Recovery in Integrated Care Settings

In this issue of Practicing Recovery, we look at what integrated care is, how it works, and its role in a recovery-oriented approach to services.
Integrated care is an approach to health care that combines behavioral health, substance use, and physical health services, sometimes along with supplemental services such as housing and employment support, into one setting. Integrated care is important to a recovery-oriented approach because it addresses the whole health of an individual, with the understanding that coordination and collaboration between the many services an individual may use can lead to better outcomes.
