Integrated Health & Wellness

Treat the Whole Person By focusing on integrated care, we can begin to treat the whole person to achieve both mental and physical wellness. Individuals living with mental illness face an increased risk of chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

The deaths are largely due to treatable, preventable medical conditions caused by risk factors including smoking, poor nutrition, lack of exercise, substance abuse, metabolic syndrome and inadequate access to medical care. To begin to address these issues, Oaks continues to expand integrated services to include primary care, substance abuse services, nutrition planning and more. The Clinic [...]
