About Brookside Community Health Center

Brookside Community Health Center is a comprehensive women’s health center located at 3297 Washington Street in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. It is one of two health centers licensed by Brigham and Women’s Hospital. It offers a full suite of health services, including adult primary care, pediatric care, behavioral health and social services, and many others.

While it is not specifically set up as a substance use disorder treatment center, it can provide outpatient care for different parts of the substance recovery process. This makes it part of the system of substance rehabs in Boston.

What addiction services does Brookside Community Health Center offer?

Brookside Community Health Center is popular with the residents of Jamaica Plain and the rest of the Greater Boston Area, with around 69,000 visits each year. While only a minority of those cases are related to substance use disorders, Brookside offers a wide array of treatments, including opioid replacement therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, substance abuse counseling, trauma counseling, and others.

The center provides services in English and Spanish, and is a certified level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home, which means the health center meets industry standards for comprehensive team-based care. It is also a teaching site for Harvard Medical School, which often gives it access to cutting-edge and experimental substance use disorder treatments.

Comprehensive outpatient treatment for substance use disorder

The team of treatment specialists at Brookside Community Health Center is collectively qualified to treat substance use disorder cases at every stage. While inpatient treatments are limited, outpatient services cover psychiatric care, counseling, and drug substitution therapy. The health center is in a convenient location, making it a go-to place for methadone and other opioid replacement treatments.
