What it is

At Mercy Hospital – Unity Campus, we have an addiction medicine unit for patients with complicated medical, psychiatric and substance use issues.

Our services are led by a physician who is an expert in the care and support of people with medical issues common to addiction and substance abuse, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney or liver problems. Our goal is to guide and assist you in achieving abstinence from alcohol and other drugs, and to help you establish a happier, more productive life.

We focus on your individual needs and make decisions with you rather than for you. We offer a whole-person care approach focused on your greater well-being.

Good to know

Most health insurance policies provide payment for addiction services. We will work to help you obtain authorizations during your admission process.

To qualify for a program, a substance use disorder comprehensive assessment (formerly known as Rule 25) is necessary. Through this assessment, our referral specialist can help select the treatment option that best suits your needs.
