Primary care visits are associated with better recovery outcomes:

A yearly primary care visit was also positively associated with remission (OR, 1.39), as was continuing care (OR, 2.34), defined as:

  • having at least 1 yearly primary care visit,
  • completing substance abuse treatment or receiving further treatment,
  • receiving alcohol or drug treatment when the alcohol or drug Addiction Severity Index (ASI) score at last assessment was higher than 0, and
  • receiving psychiatric services when the psychiatric ASI score at last assessment was higher than 0.

Makes our primary care project look pretty smart.
