The mission of the Division of Chemical Dependence is to promote and improve the provision of medical care to patients with substance abuse and co-morbid medical conditions through:
- The creation and dissemination of knowledge related to the medical care of individuals with substance abuse.
- The development, maintenance and evaluation of innovative programs related to the care of individuals with substance abuse.
- The mentorship of current and future clinicians in providing sensitive expert care to individuals with substance abuse.
The division is comprised of three main clinical services:
- Chemical Dependence Unit (CDU)
The Chemical Dependence Unit (CDU) is a 26-bed inpatient unit that provides comprehensive medical detoxification services for patients using alcohol or opiates. While on the unit, patients prepare for the next steps in their recovery.
- Outpatient Chemical Dependence Unit
The Outpatient Chemical Dependence Unit provides three- to five-day ambulatory detoxification. While in the program, patients prepare for the next steps in their recovery.
- Comprehensive Care Practice (CCP)
The Comprehensive Care Practice (CCP) is a primary care clinic that offers a full range of primary care services. Providers in the practice have extensive expertise in treatment of HIV positive patients and also in the treatment of addictions.
