Review by Rehabs.com Contributors


Located in Concord, Mass., Emerson Hospital provides inpatient and outpatient treatment programs for adults seeking crisis stabilization from psychiatric and substance abuse issues. On-site detoxification services are available as well.


Treatment at Emerson Hospital is group-oriented, offering clients a range of psychoeducational and 12-step based support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and the scientifically-based SMART Recovery program. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and psychopharmacology, per the facility’s webpage, may also make up part of the curricula here.

Adults with acute issues begin with a brief stay in the hospital’s secure, 31-bed inpatient unit. Once stabilized, aftercare may entail referrals to one of the hospital’s two outpatient tracks. Running daily from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., the day treatment program (also known as Partial Hospitalization), consists of on- and off-site meetings and presentations. With similar offerings, the intensive outpatient (IOP) program meets both mornings and afternoons up to five days per week, providing clients with flexibility to accommodate their ongoing work and family commitments.

Throughout treatment, all participants work closely with their assigned case manager, responsible for preparing comprehensive relapse prevention plans prior to program completion.


The hospital’s Psychiatric/Behavioral Health staff includes addiction clinicians and case managers.


There is currently no information provided by the hospital regarding its living arrangements and related offerings. In their Rehabs.com survey, an anonymous reviewer awarded the hospital top marks for its accommodations, meal quality, and level of cleanliness.


Sharing five-star ratings for the hospital’s “compassionate, and caring” staff and for its co-occurring treatment available, an anonymous alum told Rehabs.com: “They’re also highly skilled at therapy, and I was grateful for their intervention during my causative depression… I am alive today because of them.”

The hospital has also received mixed feedback on secondary sites by reviewers of its many departments. To date, 302 Facebook users collectively awarded the hospital an excellent average rating of 4.3 out of five stars, while 38 reviewers on Yelp contributed towards an average rating of 2.3 out of five stars.[1][2]


Emerson Hospital works with many commercial insurance plans such as Aetna, Medicare, Tricare, and Value Options. Financial assistance is also available for those in need, as the hospital proudly maintains a “single standard of care for all patients, regardless of payer or ability to pay.”

The staff was amazing, and really cares about their clients. It was obvious from the beginning that they were compassionate, and caring. They're also highly skilled at therapy, and I was grateful for their intervention during my causative depression (I was in the middle of a nasty divorce, and the anti-depressants I was on were making me more depressed, so I attempted suicide). I am alive today because of them.
