Previously, as a hospitalist in psychiatry and addiction medicine at Methodist Hospital of Chicago, Dr. Carol Lynn Childers drew on more than 25 years of experience. She began her career post-residency with Community Counseling Centers of Chicago, also known as C4, where she served a diverse population of under-resourced individuals with chronic mental health challenges. Dr. Carol Lynn Childers provided clinical services to this high-need population for five years before she opened her own private practice, at which time she also accepted the role of C4's acting medical director.
Dr. Childers went on to spend four years as the practice's medical director, in which role she oversaw 12 treating psychiatrists. She served in this role while building her independent practice in general psychiatry and addiction medicine. Experienced in the use of psychotherapy and psychopharmacology, including Suboxone therapy for the treatment of opioid dependence, she continued to consult with C4 on treatment for substance disorders for five years after stepping down as medical director.
Since that time, Dr. Carol Lynn Childers has deepened her expertise in community care with the Circle Family Healthcare Network and has practiced in private residential facilities. She went on to focus full-time on her work at Methodist Hospital of Chicago, where she treated patients in a number of different units and residential facilities.
