Numerous areas of inquiry are needed regarding integration. We have research studies looking at screening, assessment, and brief intervention. But, little work has been done examining the referral process and how patients with substance abuse needs can be referred to SUD treatment. Also, little research has been conducted examining the collaborative process between healthcare/primary care and the SUD provider throughout the longer recovery process follwing an intensive course of treatment.
