PATIENT POPULATION/ SCOPE AND COMPLEXITY
The Chemical Dependency Program provides inpatient and outpatient treatment to persons 18 years of age or older who are diagnosed with substance abuse/addiction illnesses. Our program is designed for those individuals who can make a long-term commitment to treatment and recovery, including the willingness to appropriately participate in all of the program’s therapy and treatment modalities. Patients admitted to the program must have the physical, occupational, cognitive, and social resources and capabilities to make significant life changes required for long -erm recovery. Detoxification services are available for those who need to be medically stabilized prior to beginning long-term treatment. The Chemical Dependency program consists of a 15-bed inpatient unit, which provides care twenty-four hours per day. The primary diagnoses treated on the unit are addiction; however, patients may have additional medical and psychiatric co-morbidities. The majority of patients treated will be admitted from independent living environments. The Clinical Nurse Manager provides clinical and operational leadership to the department. The Department Chairperson provides overall medical direction to the Department of Psychiatry. The Medical Director provides medical direction and clinical oversight of programming and patient care for Harborview Recovery Center. Clinical Supervisors, a Program Development Coordinator and a Clinical Nurse Specialist provide direct clinical supervision to the department as well.
