Mercy Care believes in a holistic, person centered Medical Home. An integrated model of recovery-oriented treatment for both the mind and body is offered to every patient served. The services offered are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). In addition, Mercy Care currently maintains a Drug Abuse Treatment and Education Program license from the Department of Community Health. The behavioral health staff have been trained in some of the latest innovative approaches to behavioral health treatment.
All new medical patients are screened for concerns related to depression, anxiety, addiction and other behavioral health issues. Patients experiencing behavioral health concerns are referred to a licensed clinician who is embedded within the primary care setting for further assessment, recommendations and referrals for appropriate care. The behavioral health clinician works as a member of the overall primary care treatment team to provide the best integrated care possible.
