Primary Health Care
Alongside our mental health services, we can help with your common illnesses, injuries, physical exams, screenings and wellness checkups. We will also help you monitor chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and make referrals to other specialists if necessary. Everything from day-to-day sickness and annual checkups to vaccinations and standard lab work is available.
Your physical healthcare is just as important as treating your mental illness. Your mental health affects physical health. And, your physical health can affect your mental health. By focusing on both, CODAC provides you with the most complete care available. You’ll have a team of experts - primary care providers, along with psychiatrists, nurses, medical assistants, therapists, care managers and peer support specialists - working together as one team in one convenient location to care for the whole you.
Why a Special Program for 50+?
Getting older isn't easy. Sometimes it's helpful to be surrounded by trained professionals who specialize in caring for people in your life stage. It's also nice to be in a community with others who can relate to your challenges from a similar point of view.
Statistics show that individuals with serious mental illness live shorter lives than those without by more than 25 years. Come to CODAC’s Cactus Bloom program to focus on your physical and mental health, feel happier and extend your life.
