Addiction Program

The Addiction Program incorporates treatment, education and research of concurrent disorders across the health care continuum.

Concurrent disorders

are described as two or more disorders in a single individual interacting in the presenting clinical picture. The Addiction Program promotes the Progressive and Integrated Recovery (PaIR) Model.

Progressive: Based on assessment results and motivation, patient care starts with lowest level of treatment intensity required/desired followed by higher levels as needed.

Integrated: Combines treatment elements from mental health, medicine and addiction to create a unified and comprehensive program.

Recovery: Recovery management provides an alternative to the traditional provision of unrelated, serial episodes of acute care.
