Your treatment team
At Mayo Clinic, a doctor with advanced specialized training in the treatment of addiction, called an addiction psychiatrist, coordinates the treatment programs and all of your care. The doctor leads a team of addiction specialists, who provide comprehensive and individualized care for each person — from the initial evaluation, to treatment, to continuing care and follow-up treatment plans.
The ratio of one licensed alcohol and drug counselor or licensed clinical social worker for every four to five patients ensures that you receive the individual attention necessary to accomplish your treatment goals.
Core members of your treatment team include these professionals:
- Addiction psychiatrist
- Licensed alcohol and drug counselor or licensed clinical social worker
- Nurse with special training in addictions
