CATALYST is still accepting new patients and providing all services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Most appointments will be completed via telemedicine.

Who should be referred to the CATALYST Clinic?

  • Any patient (25 years old and younger) who use substances or is at risk for substance use disorder.
  • We can see patients ranging from those who have just started to use substances to patients who you suspect may have developed addiction.

What can patients expect?

Patients will be scheduled to meet with a physician or nurse practitioner and a social worker for an intake. This intake will be roughly two hours. Based on our assessment, we will make recommendations about a treatment plan.
