In 2015, HCMC Addiction Medicine Program provided medication-assisted substance use disorder treatment to 815 patients. This included 86,620 clinic visits and 202,041 patient days of treatment. The population served is predominately opioid dependent patients funded by the Consolidated Chemical Dependency Treatment Fund and Medical Assistance prepaid medical plans. Patients participating in the program are at much lower risk of hospitalization and incarceration than are comparable patients who do not receive medication-assisted therapy. They are also much more likely to be employed and actively engaged in family and social responsibilities. The HCMC program is highly regarded in the community for its comprehensive care and emphasis on working with complex patients that have multiple medical and psychiatric issues.

About our clinics: This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin County Medical Center. Many insurance plans pay for health care services provided in a hospital-based clinic differently than those provided in a doctor’s office. Your insurance may require that you meet your annual deductible and/or require that you pay a percentage of the bill rather than just an office visit co-payment. You should check with your insurance company if you have any questions. Read our FAQs about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
