Dr. Lee Hindin is board-certified in psychiatry and in addiction medicine.
He is a graduate of Rutgers College and The New Jersey Medical School of The University of Medicine and Dentistry.
Dr. Hindin is a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and a member of the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry.
While director of psychiatry at St. Barnabas Medical Center in New Jersey, Dr. Hindin learned how managed behavioral healthcare affected the provision of inpatient psychiatry and chemical dependency services. With the application of managed care principles to outpatient behavioral health, it became clear to him that the best care would be delivered in an integrated setting, one in which psychiatrist and psychotherapist collaborated easily by having ready access not only to medical records, but to each other, as well.
After leaving St. Barnabas for a sabbatical during which he did volunteer work at a mental health clinic in Jerusalem, Israel, he founded Creative Intervention in 1994.
