Addiction Recovery Program

The Addiction Recovery Program at Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital is part of the Brigham and Women’s Department of Psychiatry, and is the program for all of Brigham Health.

The program offers a comprehensive array of clinical services for individuals seeking recovery from alcohol and other drug addiction. Our team is unique in that it brings together experts from the field of medicine, psychiatry and addiction, which gives us the ability to care for patients with both addiction and co-existing medical and/or psychiatric illnesses.

Our Vision: To continue our long tradition of inspiring hope and providing dignified, respectful care to our patients, while incorporating the latest advances in addiction medicine in order to provide our patients will the fullest range and highest quality of treatments.

Our Mission: To provide evidenced-based, compassionate care in a professional and collaborative manner which creates an atmosphere of hope that not only promotes recovery from alcohol or drug addiction, but provides a space where patients can discover their highest human potential and be inspired to make recovery-oriented changes medically, socially, emotionally and/or spiritually.

Patient Centered-Care: We believe that the patient knows himself or herself better than any of us. We aim to provide care that elicits the patient’s strengths and supports the patient in a way that helps him or her to make long lasting recovery-oriented changes.

Collaborative Care: We achieve the best outcomes when we foster collegial staff relationships and deliver care that is team oriented, including recognizing that the patient is a vital part of the team. We strive to dismantle the stigma associated with substance use disorders.

Professional Care: For us, professional care is an attitude that supports recovery-oriented change in our patients, supports our colleagues to continue to provide quality care, and continues to take advantage of opportunities for growth and learning so that we can provide the highest quality, evidence-based treatments.

Inspirational Care: We believe that providing hope to our patients by highlighting their strengths is a key to improving their confidence and discovering their human potential, and ultimately inspiring recovery-oriented changes.
