Primary care physicians are often the first point of contact for mental illness and opioid addiction patients. Most primary care clinics don't have access to providers trained in mental health and addiction medicine. At the same time, national survey of patients with substance abuse and mental illness showed that 37.2% of respondents said they would be willing to enter drug treatment plan if it was offered in a primary care setting, compared to 24.5% of respondents who said they would enter a specialized drug or alcohol treatment center.

Mental Health Services
Mental illness is very common among people who have substance abuse and addiction issues. According to a 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health by SAMHSA, 8.2 million adults had a co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorder in the past year. Studies have found that among individuals with non-alcohol substance use disorders, 28% had co-occurring anxiety disorders, 26% had mood disorders, 18% had antisocial personality disorder, and 7% suffered from schizophrenia. In 2016, only an estimated 6.9% of adults with mental illness and substance abuse disorder received the mental health and substance abuse care they needed that year.
Summit Behavioral Health has a network of addiction trained therapists that can offer either individual or group therapy options to patients struggling with opioid addiction.
