Behavioral Medicine: 

Improving Access for Primary Care & Specialty Providers

Our behavioral medicine expansion is a response to the growing need for general psychiatry and medical assisted treatment (MAT) in communities throughout central and southeastern Ohio.  We work with local health systems to design behavioral health referral and support options for patients seen in primary and specialty care.

We meet people wherever they may be throughout our region with an array of general psychiatry, medical assisted treatment (MAT), intensive outpatient and integrative counseling with support from a legion of dedicated community behavioral health workers.  But that’s not enough.  Therapeutic services are aligned with partner resources in public health, employment, housing and local food access so that people seeking recovery can repurpose their own lives.

A rapid build-out of service staff and facilities is underway.  We’ll be sure to keep everyone up to date as we move forward.  But referrals can be received now by calling 800-321-8293.  Your call will be connected to a reception & scheduling professional in your own community.

Employee Climate Survey

The Integrated Services employee climate survey was recently completed with results dated May 2018.  Listed below are top five survey items for positive responses as well as areas identified for improvement.  If you are reading this, then you are experiencing one of our responses to areas identified for improvement.  For years, Integrated Services staff have desired more up-to-date information about the growth and development of our company.  Beginning immediately, look to this space for ever changing and updated information about the news of Integrated Services.  It’s often hard to keep up, there’s so much going on.  But we’ll do our best.

Second, we are beginning a direct information campaign specifically created and carefully targeted to help community health workers with their jobs.  The content will be focused on essential elements of motivational interviewing and harm reduction.  Our information campaign will likely begin in the fall based on several months of content development involving our own clinical staff along with cross-systems professionals from across the nation.  Once launched, information will continue to flow indefinitely, again, with a focus on essential elements of motivational interviewing and harm reduction.   By the way, we had a 66% response rate for our survey this year.  Let's do better next time.
