Why Holistic Substance Abuse Treatment is Important

An individual's health care, mental health, and addiction issues are no longer viewed separately.

image of young man considering outpatient recovery optionsHistorically health care, mental health care, and addiction treatment have been treated as separate issues.  Scientific evidence shows that this separation has created obstacles to successful care coordination. More recently, efforts have been made to incorporate care and focus on how the issues interact for an individual.

One way this can happen is with improved screening and assessments with general health practitioners who recognize when to refer their patients for mental health care and/or specialty substance abuse treatment services.  Research shows that closer integration of substance use care and mainstream health care will be of value to both types of care.

Many people who have mental health or substance abuse issues present first to their family doctor, and often for an unrelated concern.

If with a simple screening, the physician is made aware of a potential problem with substances or mental health, a referral and suggestion for treatment can occur.  Earlier treatment leads to better outcomes.

Without well-integrated and coordinated health care, many patients fall through the cracks when opportunities for early interventions or referrals are missed.  This can lead to higher rates of hospitalizations and emergency department treatments and even individual deaths.

A 12-year study found that 91 percent of patients who suffered a non-fatal overdose continued to receive prescriptions for opioids.  63 percent of those patients continued to be prescribed high doses of opioids.  Within two-years, 17 percent of those patients who had suffered a non-fatal overdose overdosed again.

Proper coordination of care with primary care providers, emergency departments, and specialized substance abuse treatment providers can greatly decrease the risks of repeated overdoses and potential tragedies.

Another risk for overdose occurs when a substance abuse treatment does not incorporate follow-up support and does not educate on the particularly high risk of overdose following a period of abstinence. When those who suffer with substance abuse body has adjusted to being substance-free, their rate of tolerance to the substance has decreased and they don’t know what a safe dose is for them.  Returning to a dose that they had been able to tolerate before their abstinence can lead to overdose and death.
