CSB Medical Services staff (psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physicians' assistants, nurses and other medical professionals) throughout the CSB provide:
- Psychiatric/diagnostic evaluations
- Medication management
- Physical exams/primary health care and coordination with other medical providers

- Residential and outpatient detoxification
- Residential and outpatient addiction medicine clinics using medication assisted treatment (MAT)

Often people with mental illness, substance use disorders and developmental disabilities lack access to primary medical and dental care. CSB partners with several other healthcare providers to offer primary and behavioral health services at CSB clinical sites.
