Review by Contributors


A part of the Brigham and Women’s Department of Psychiatry at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital, the Addiction Recovery Program offers outpatient substance abuse treatment services for adults, as well as medically monitored inpatient detox services. Buprenorphine and Vivitrol are used for opiate and alcohol withdrawal.


According to the facility's website, all clients receive a comprehensive clinical assessment upon admission. The outpatient program is evidence-based and consists of two weeks of evening group therapy sessions.

Programming also includes addiction education and an introduction to 12-step and SMART Recovery meetings, hypnotherapy, meditation, exercise, along with cognitive and spiritual approaches.

The program is designed to be used in tandem with regular attendance at self-help meetings, which are held on campus. Group size is small and designed to help participants develop positive coping skills for recovery.

The treatment team provides information about HIV, smoking cessation, nutrition, and other health issues.

The treatment center's goal is to promote abstinence and recovery from chemical dependency and its effects along with assisting patients in achieving their highest level of potential. The program also offers information to clients' family and friends about how to support the clients and how to care for themselves.


The treatment team includes doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners, as well as licensed clinical social workers, and advanced-practice addiction counselors.


The two former clients surveyed by at the time of this writing provided positive feedback, and they both indicated they would recommend the treatment center.

One alum gave five out of five stars for most metrics evaluated, including its treatment of co-occurring disorders, counseling options, and the staff's level of training and experience. "In education classes for the 3 days I was an inpatient," they wrote.

The other alum indicated treatment was worth the cost. "It was a good program, but leaned a little to heavily on 12-step reference material. I would prefer to see more science-based and proven strategies used," they wrote.


According to the facility’s website, most commercial insurance plans are accepted.

There are not enough inpatient facilities in eastern MA.

It was a good program, but leaned a little to heavily on 12-step reference material. I would prefer to see more science-based and proven strategies used. It was an outpatient program, but yes it was worth the cost.
