Integrating Primary Care and Other Specialty Medical Care is Important

We cannot treat psychiatric illness and addiction without careful attention to the overall health of the body. Too many physical health conditions can mimic psychiatric illness, and the body can be ravaged by the physical consequences of mental illness and substance abuse in particular. Some of this work requires coordination with other health care providers, and some requires that we take responsibility for the general health consequences of the disorders we treat and the medications we prescribe and recommend.
