Assistant clinical professor of psychiatry, director of addiction services
Christopher Holden is assistant professor of clinical psychiatry in the UIC College of Medicine, and director of addiction services at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System. He treats a variety of psychiatric conditions, and he specializes in the treatment of patients with co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorders in the outpatient mental health clinic as well as the hospital’s inpatient medical, surgical, and psychiatric units.
Holden believes that patients are most likely to recover from psychiatric and addictive disorders if they are addressed simultaneously, in particular with multiple complementary approaches, which can include medication and psychotherapy. He has published in the fields of addiction medicine and basic biomedical research.
