Determining Need
  • According to Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (2014):
      • 8.9 million adults have co-occurring disorders
      • Only 7.4 percent of individuals receive treatment for both conditions with 55.8 percent receiving no treatment at all
    • Certain people with mental illness (males, low SES, increased medical illness) are at increased risk of abusing drugs and alcohol
  • One-third of people with all mental illnesses and approximately one half of people with severe mental illnesses experience substance abuse
impact of lacking treatment
Impact of Lacking Treatment

  • Wingra Family Medicine Clinic is part of Access Community Health Centers and the treatment providers at Wingra will be sharing information with your primary care provider in order to provide you with the best possible care. During your time at Wingra you will meet with the Behavioral Health Team and with Dr. Randy Brown, a physician who specializes in strategies for harm reduction and substance use issues. Your visits with the Primary Care Health Promotions Team will become part of your medical record and this information can be viewed by individuals involved in your care.
  • If you are accepted and seen by this clinic, your primary care doctor will remain your primary care doctor. For all other general medical needs, you will continue to seek medical care with your regular doctor at your regular clinic as you did previously.
  • About your work with the Primary Care Health Promotions Team.
  • 1. We work as a group so you will likely see multiple members of the team.
  • 2. We communicate very well with each other so you should not need to repeat yourself at each visit.
  • 3. We are strategic in our visits, usually spending about 15-30 minutes with you to troubleshoot what is most important to you.
