Co-Occurring Disorders and Primary Care
Many individuals seeking care, either for co-occurring disorders or in primary care, have multiple conditions. Co-occurring disorders may exacerbate or be related to other health problems, such as accident-related injuries, gastritis, headaches, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, digestive disorders, stroke, parkinsonism, HIV infection, chronic renal failure, and chronic pain syndromes. As such, screening in both systems of care and coordination of care between the two services systems can be very helpful to meeting individual needs.
