Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Robert Morse, M.D.
Transcript
Description Dr. Morse was the founder of Mayo's addictions/substance abuse treatment program. Born and raised on the Canadian border in International Falls, Minnesota, he trained at the University of Minnesota, but went to the Mayo Clinic for residency in psychiatry. While at the community mental health center in Rochester following residency, he became involved in substance abuse treatment by chance. Dr. Morse describes this in detail. The Mayo treatment program was different than many others; being in a large medical setting, medical (and psychiatric) treatment was integrated into the program, and this proved quite successful. Dr. Morse also notes the changes in addiction treatment, as in so many other parts of medicine and psychiatry, forced by the impact of managed care. This interview provides a sense of how the Mayo Clinic operates.
