The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is now offering clinical services for youth struggling with substance and behavioral addictions. Video game adictions are among the many behavioral addictions treated in the clinic. This new clinic offered through Stanford Children's Health is designed to help with the treatment needs of individuals ages 12-25 that suffer from both addictions and co-occurring psychiatric disorders. Individuals suffering from both a substance use disorder and a mental health discorder are identified as having a "dual diagnosis".
Patients, family and physicians may reach our intake office at (650) 723-5511. The intake coordinator will assist in obtaining insurance verification and pre-authorization as needed. Please reference the "Youth Addictions and Dual Diagnosis Clinic" when calling.
