Behavioral Health and the Primary Care Visit

Our Integrated Behavioral Health Program improves your access to behavioral services, resources, and counseling. Services are available for adults and children.

Your behavioral health team includes your primary care provider, care coordinators, behavioral health counselors, and psychiatric nurse practitioners. They work together using shared decision making and electronic health records. This team approach allows us to provide the best care for you and your family.

When you meet with your primary care provider, issues may be identified where the Behavioral Health Care Team can provide support. Your Primary Care Provider may consult with the Behavioral Health Care team, or invite you to meet with them as part of your visit. They may also arrange for a future counseling visit. This flexible approach to care is based on your needs and shared decision making.

Counseling

You can schedule an appointment directly with the Behavioral Health Care Team or through your Primary Care Provider. The Behavioral Health Care Team is here to help with:

  • Depression
  • Life issues
  • Anxiety
  • Substance abuse
  • Coping with chronic disease

For more complex Behavioral Health issues, our team will assist you with referrals to appropriate care facilities. Our goal is to improve your access to Behavioral Health Services in a safe and comfortable environment. You’ll receive the care you need, through integration with your primary care medical home.

Medication Assisted Treatment

Buprenorphine opioid - Its primary uses in medicine are in the treatment of those with Substance Use Disorder.
Our Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program strives to improve the lives of our patients who struggle with opioid use and alcohol use disorder by providing compassionate, integrated care. Our program uses Suboxone (buprenorphine/ naloxone) and Vivitrol (naltrexone) in combination with behavioral health services. Patients have a team of professionals to support their recovery.

If you are struggling with opioid use or alcohol use disorder, contact our MAT nurse to discuss if our program may be right for you. We can also assist you in accessing other community resources.

There are many pathways to recovery. Our Recovery Group will use a variety of evidence-based therapy approaches and peer support. We believe that recovery is a process of change, which includes many aspects of a person’s life. We will focus on growth and improvement in one’s physical and emotional wellbeing, relationships, and purpose.

This Recovery Group is for Lamprey Health Care patients who have a history or current challenges with substance use disorder. The group is facilitated by Britta Bartlett, MA, LCMHC, LADC.
