Center for Drug & Alcohol Programs (CDAP)

The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs (CDAP) at MUSC Health’s Institute of Psychiatry (IOP) is one of the nation’s premier facilities for the treatment of alcohol and substance abuse problems. Our clinical services, directed by Dr. Hugh Myrick and staffed by highly trained professionals, offer the most up-to-date methods for the treatment of addictions.

CDAP’s alcohol and substance abuse treatment philosophy encompasses a variety of biological, psychological, and social interventions that have been shown to be effective. Unlike many other treatment programs, no single approach characterizes the CDAP program, since we know from experience that not everyone responds to the same therapies in the same way.

What is unique about CDAP is that we use therapies that have been shown, in research studies, to be effective in reducing risk of relapse. In addition, our therapists have received specialized training in using these therapies with addicted individuals. Patients are provided with several different treatments, thereby maximizing the chances that they will benefit from the treatment experience.

CDAP offers outpatient treatment programs at the MUSC Health Institute of Psychiatry in downtown Charleston.
