Keith McAdam is a behavioral health provider with an integrated, harm reduction based dual-diagnosis program with the Duke Infectious Diseases Clinic and the Wake County Human Services HIV Clinic, through funding from the Ryan White CARE Act and SAMHSA.

Mr. McAdam got his Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of New Orleans in 2004 and his Masters in Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007 at age 40. Prior to his current position Mr. McAdam worked in the music, construction, security and service industries. In 1994 his life was transformed when he was invited to be a counselor at a summer camp program for children and families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. After 14 years, that one week in Maine (and his wonderful wife) prepared him to add formal education to complement his unmarketable life skills. Because of his interest in working with the HIV/AIDS population and addiction, he was given an internship with the Infectious Diseases Division at UNC Hospital, which led to an internship in the ID Clinic, which led to his current position at Duke. Which led to a belief that truly, anything can happen.
