In 1973, Dr. Stenson began treating opiate addicts while a psychiatric resident at UCD School of Medicine at our current location. In 1980, he was one of the founding partners in Bi-Valley Medical Clinic to contract with the county to treat the 150 methadone maintenance patients in that program.
In 2009, Bi-Valley divided and C.O.R.E Medical was formed to continue the operations at 2100 Capitol Avenue. Dr. Stenson, the owner, is board certified in 'Psychiatry and Neurology' and 'Addiction Medicine'.
He has always been involved in educating others about opiate addiction, conducting numerous community workshops and is finalizing a book, titled, MOUD, Medications for Opioid Use Disorder, The Basics, What Each Patient, Support Person, and Staff Should Know.
