Our practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of substance use disorders. We also provide 3rd party medical services for psychiatric and addiction treatment facilities and clinical and business consulting services for mental health providers. Founded over 20 years ago by Dr. Eugene Degner, a pioneer in the medical treatment of alcoholics and addicts and the first board certified addiction medicine doctor in Texas, we proudly carry on his legacy. Our doctors, nurses and mental health professionals expertly treat patients and their families at any stage of addiction and/or recovery in a caring and non-judgmental environment. We also specialize in providing medical and other related services, including individual and family therapy, for patients with mental health conditions (such as depression, trauma and anxiety).

The patients we treat come from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds (addiction and mental illness do not discriminate).

Dr. Eugene A. Degner graduated Suma Cum Laude from Millikin University with a BS in Biology and received his MD from Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Degner began his successful career in family medicine in 1964 and following his own personal struggle with addiction and subsequent treatment/long-term sobriety, Dr. Degner was asked to be the founding Medical Director of Parkside Lodge in Katy, TX in 1983. For the next 34 years he led and founded several top treatment programs in Houston, attended to countless patients suffering from addiction and trained many prominent Texas doctors who specialize in addiction medicine. He also pioneered medically assisted detox techniques that are now standard practice and was the first Board Certified Addiction Medicine doctor in Texas. Contemporary Medicine Associates was a private practice that Dr. Degner founded with his wife Susan, in order to competently treat patients at any stage of addiction or recovery, in an understanding and compassionate environment. It is with the greatest deference and gratitude that the partners of CMA carry on Dr. Degner’s and Susan’s legacy.
