The Brigham Health Bridge Clinic

The Brigham Health Bridge Clinic is a rapid-access, low barrier clinic for patients with Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), including alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine, amphetamines, etc. We embrace a harm reduction and compassionate approach for patients in all stages of recovery.

We are conveniently located at the main entrance of Brigham and Women’s Hospital at 75 Francis Street, Boston MA.

The Brigham Health Bridge Clinic provides the following services:

  • Medications for the treatment of addiction (e.g., buprenorphine/Suboxone™, Sublocade™, naltrexone, Vivitrol™)
  • Individual and group peer support with a recovery coach or social worker
  • Connection to community resources for food resources, housing, identifications cards, employment, education, etc.
  • Provides a “bridge” to longer-term treatment that fits each patient’s self-identified path for sustained recovery when an individual is ready for that transition

Specialized Services

  • Addiction Psychiatry: Treatment and management of mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar disorder that can often co-occur with substance use
  • Infectious Diseases: Treatment and management of infections such as HIV, Hepatitis C, bone/joint infections, heart valve infections, etc. that often occur during substance use
  • Women’s Health: Treatment and coordination of care for women prior to pregnancy, during pregnancy, and throughout the post-partum period, including support for mothers around Department of Children and Families (DCF) cases and custody hearings
