Community Programs in the School of MedicineTitle: University of Maryland Division of Substance Abuse Services
Description: Substance Abuse Services provides comprehensive methadone treatment to uninsured Baltimore City residents, outpatient substance abuse treatment to uninsured patients from Baltimore City at the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (ADAP), and outpatient suboxone treatment. Substance Abuse Services includes treatment of some adolescents from Baltimore. The hospital funded programs (Substance Abuse CL and the Pratt Street Programs) provide treatment to Baltimore residents but not exclusively so. Members of our Division of Substance Abuse have helped to form and currently volunteer with the Baltimore City Health Department's "Staying Alive" opioid overdose prevention program. Medical students see patients with faculty in this program. Department faculty also serve as medical consultants to the Baltimore Substance Abuse System's Baltimore Buprenorphine Initiative, a commitment of about 4-6 hours per month. A faculty member has also been involved with planning meetings for a Health Department/BSAS Mobile Buprenorphine project.
The Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services at the Evelyn Jordan Clinic provides HIV infected clients with mental health and substance abuse disorders timely, culturally sensitively, high quality, coordinated, evidenced based outpatient treatment with the outcome of improving healthy functioning and quality of life. We provide treatment primarily to residents of the City of Baltimore. The clinic interacts with other service providers in Baltimore.
