The Addiction Medicine Clinic

Whole support for a whole recovery
Everyone deserves the chance for greater success in recovering from addiction to alcohol, opioids or other drugs. It’s why one of Minnesota’s most highly respected nonprofit centers for medically assisted treatment and recovery support created the Addiction Medicine Clinic.

More tools for complete recovery
Here, we’ve expanded and integrated our services for a more holistic approach that’s proven to deliver better outcomes. So people in need of help can get immediate access to a combination of:

  1. Addiction treatment
  2. Medication-assisted therapy
  3. Outpatient medical care
  4. Mental health services
  5. Help finding insurance, housing, work and more

What is the Addiction Medicine Clinic?
As a one-stop shop for people in need of support for recovery from addiction, there’s nothing else like this in the region. Now, a person dealing with substance use disorder (SUD) or opioid use disorder (OUD) can get life-saving medication from a pharmacist, talk with doctors and mental health therapists, and find nonmedical resources at the same time.

Referring? Now, there’s more immediate access to treatments, testing and medically proven methods of supporting recovery. And that’s healthier for everyone in the community.
We offer whole support for a whole recovery, all in one place.

There are many paths to recovery, and our Clinic treats each person with dignity as they travel their own path. Click the following links to get more information about our walk-in assessment, detoxification, intensive outpatient treatment, and inpatient treatment.

More effective treatments
With more tools and supports in place, and a whole-patient approach to treatment and therapy, the odds are better that people striving to recover won’t relapse. That’s been proven for alcohol and all substance use disorders.

Consider the benefits of office-based opioid treatment (OBOT)
The combination of medically-assisted treatment with individualized counseling and therapy has been proven the most effective way to treat heroin and prescription drug addiction. It’s safer, medically-driven, and more effective. With our CADT Addiction Medicine Clinic programs:

  • There’s increased access to drug treatment—without traditional rehab.
  • People are treated for comorbid disorders—like depression and anxiety along with medication to manage symptoms of opioid addiction.
  • We’re decreasing stigma—because addiction is a disease that can be treated by medical professionals, just like diabetes and heart disease, so more people get the help they need.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Research shows that when treating such disorders, or disease, the most successful approach for many people includes both medication and behavioral therapies. It’s a clinically driven approach with a focus on individualized patient care.
