Forensic Drug Diversion (ForDD) Clinic

The Forensic Drug Diversion (ForDD) Clinic is a satellite clinic of the Connecticut Mental Health Center (CMHC), and represents a cooperative endeavor between the Law and Psychiatry Division of the Department of Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine and the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. The mission of the Forensic Drug Diversion Clinic is to provide best practice procedures and to offer outpatient, evidenced-based therapies to substance abusing men and women with criminal justice involvement. The goal is to decrease substance use and recidivism rates among substance dependent populations with criminal justice involvement while promoting pro-social behaviors and increasing the overall health of this population. The treatment team consists of psychologists, social workers, nurses, drug and alcohol counselors, and psychiatrists. Services offered include diagnostic evaluation, crisis management, pharmacotherapy, case management, harm reduction, individual therapy, and group therapy.
