Integration Models: An Approach to Address the Opioid Epidemic

The Opioid Epidemic has developed over the last two decades from a combination of factors. Effective approaches to address the epidemic will require collaboration with various community organizations and integration within the professional treatment community. The models of collaboration and integration across the country provide a framework which can be adjusted for each community depending on local resources. Barriers to develop an integrated approach have a direct effect on individuals seeking care and clinician’s ability to provide effective care. Although the challenges to collaborate and integrate are many, the potential benefits for clients with substance use disorders are even greater.
