Some might not expect to find one of the country’s most advanced examples of integrated care in a small Midwestern town. But in Salina, Kansas (population 47,846) the Central Kansas Foundation has been integrating its services with other health care providers in the area since 2009. Today, CKF has integrated recovery services into acute and primary care settings at two local hospitals and collaborates with a health network of 15 critical access hospitals. Les Sperling, CEO of CKF, shared some insights on what he’s learned about integrating SUD services in a panel presentation and in one of the Ignite Talks at the recent ATTC Forum on Advancing the Integration of SUD Services and Health Care.
