Integrated behavioral health services enable patients to access mental health and/or substance use services in the Crusader Community Health location of their choice.
Behavioral health staff and primary care providers work together to provide collaborative, coordinated behavioral health and medical care. This helps increase awareness, provides early intervention and makes treatment easier to access and use.
In collaboration with medical providers, behavioral health providers/consultants provide assessment, diagnosis, therapy, psychoeducation, relapse prevention planning, crisis intervention and treatment recommendations.
Crusader offers Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) services for adult patients with an opioid or alcohol use disorder.
Our substance use disorder services are based on an integrated model of treatment and utilize a multi-disciplinary, patient-centered team approach to care. We embrace harm-reduction principles and best practices while providing treatment services based on each patient’s individual needs. Treatment includes FDA-approved medications, including Buprenorphine (Suboxone), Naltrexone, or Vivitrol in conjunction with clinically appropriate behavioral health services.
Behavioral health case managers provide support and work with patients and their families to identify needs, eliminate barriers to health care, and improve access to the resources necessary to meet those needs.
Psychiatric services are provided by a psychiatrist or psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner via telehealth, and in full collaboration with Crusader medical and behavioral health staff.
