Aaron Cleveland, MD

Prior to college and medical school, I served with distinction with the 101st Airborne  Division.  Following my Honorable Discharge, I attended UC Santa Cruz where I received a Minor in Music and a BA in Psychology, after graduating I spent 3 years studying the Biological Sciences.  Eventually, I attended and graduated from UC Davis Family Medicine Residency, Martinez Program, which is now associated with UCSF.


I am currently Board Certified in both Family Medicine and Board Certified in Addiction Medicine (which has recently been recognized by the ABMS). I am a member of the American Academy of Family Practice and The American Society of Addiction Medicine.  I have Academic Appointments as Associate Professor at California Northstate University College of Medicine as well as Associate Professor UC Davis Health System (Volunteer Faculty).


Over the last decade while creating and operating my own medical practice, I had the privilege of working as the Medical Director of CoRR (Community Recovery Resources), helping create and build a unique Substance Treatment Campus located in Grass Valley Campus. I worked as part of a team in helping acquire 8.7 million dollars from the USDA while building the internal organization and a full spectrum of substance dependency programs and services.  In fact, CoRR is just about to be one of the few treatment campuses in the country to have the ability to hospitalize clients within their own facility.


Over the past 3-4 years while working part-time with CoRR, I worked as Chief Medical Officer of a large FQHC and CMO of Sacramento Native American Health Centers where I have treated patients and built programs in such areas as Hepatitis C, Chronic Pain, Transgender and Substance Dependency.  I am currently working on research project involving Hepatitis C in the TransGender Community, as well as writing an article for publication exploring the Neurophysiological similarities between Schizophrenia and Addiction.
