West End Clinic is a branch of Massachusetts General Hospital’s psychiatric department. Established in 1934, West End Clinic offers outpatient treatment programs for addiction and co-occurring disorders through evidence-based approaches.
Clients enrolled in West End Clinic’s substance abuse program can access several community resources as well as programs provided by Massachusetts General Hospital, including primary and mental health care.
Clients wishing to enroll in the outpatient program have to undergo an initial assessment, which will help in determining specific requirements. Once the assessment results are out, the treating staff designs an appropriate group therapy track.
Treating adults aged 26 and above, the group addresses several addiction-related topics such as Seeking Safety for female clients, which is a combination of PTSD and psychoeducation support. Other groups include process groups, a CBT based anxiety group, family groups that provide education on alcoholism, relapse prevention groups, and smoking cessation groups.
Individual therapy sessions can be scheduled upon request. In addition, the facility also offers medication management and dual diagnosis support.
West End Clinic also offers a weekly mindfulness group that utilizes meditation. Clients can visit 12-step meetings if they wish, though West End does not include it in any of its programs.
West End Clinic staff comprises MDs, PhD-level counselors, LADCs, LCSWs, and CADACs.
Besides the West End’s program, Massachusetts General Hospital also offers an outpatient behavioral health track for young adults aged 15 to 26 called ARMS or Addiction Recovery Management Services. This track has several features of the adult track. This track can also incorporate family and couple therapy.
Aside from outpatient programs, Mass General offers various medical and psychiatric services, which include inpatient psychiatric unit, eating disorders, and electrotherapy. A full list of services is present on Mass General’s website.
