Addiction Medicine

Hennepin Healthcare offers medication for addiction treatment (MAT) of opioid, alcohol, and tobacco use disorders. Depending on the services needed, treatment is available in either a licensed outpatient addiction treatment program or a traditional office-based medical clinic.

Our Commitment to Racial Justice and the Community.

On behalf of the Department of Medicine

We rise in solidarity with all members of our community who are grieving and fighting against social injustice and structural racism. We want you to know that we are here for you and your families. We will support the cause of racial justice and are also well aware that inequality leads to poorer health care outcomes.

We recognize the strain on our community both emotionally and physically. We continue to provide the best medical care for you. We also understand the fear, mistrust and difficulties you may experience while navigating your healthcare needs, and will work to eliminate these barriers. We are committed to providing safe, accessible, and unbiased healthcare for all who are in need or desire it and we will partner with our community to learn how best to address inequities in effective and meaningful ways. We are here to care for you and share in your wellness. We encourage you to call us with any concerns as well as thoughts on how we can move forward in this necessary journey together. We are here with you, for life.

The Addiction Medicine Clinic provides assessment and MAT of opioid, alcohol, tobacco, and some sedative use disorders in a lower intensity setting.

Insurance or private pay is accepted for these services.

Additional patient services

In addition to medications, patients in both clinics receive individual counseling, drug and alcohol testing, and referrals to other medical and psychiatric services as needed. Patients in the licensed outpatient treatment program also receive case management, group therapy and education, and access to an on-site psychiatrist.

  • Individual counseling sessions

Our clinics have extensive experience working with pregnant and post-partum patients. We emphasize close coordination with OB/GYN services, parenting education, and involvement of the family with appropriate community agencies before and after delivery.

    On-site services are available for program patients including psychiatric assessments, prescriptions, medication checks, and psychotherapy. Other services (neuropsychiatric testing, behavioral therapy, etc.) are arranged by referral or through the patient's mental health provider.

Hospital-based care

This is a hospital-based clinic owned by Hennepin Healthcare. 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 the Frequently asked questions about hospital-based clinics to learn more.
