Family Continuity has championed moving toward an Integrated Model of Care in Massachusetts by proving clinicians in a variety of settings including medical practices and health centers. Individuals are more likely to seek treatment when clinicians are integrated in these settings, which improves access and engagement, increases community tenure and improves recovery rates often without the need for more acute and costly services. Currently, FC has Master-Level clinicians at the following sites:
Tri-County Center for Adolescent and Young Adult Health in Milford
Tri-County Family Practice in Northbridge
Tri-River Health in Uxbridge
Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (5 sites)
Performance Pediatrics in Plymouth
Clinicians work in partnership with medical professionals to provide a bridge between these institutions and specialty behavioral healthcare when necessary. This continuity of care provides a holistic approach to the clients’ experience and reduces treatment barriers.
