Massachusetts has been in the top 5 states for heroin overdoses for over 3 years in a row. As recovering addicts of our community we have joined together in the opening of Northeast Addictions Treatment Center. WE have combined the best clinical, medical and twelve step centred doctors, psychologists and clinicians to address the on-going problem. As a community we watched as our loved ones, clients, patients, co-workers and colleagues struggled to find adequate care in the great city of Boston and the surrounding area. Once someone was finally admitted to a local hospital, facility or detox their stay was all too often short and they never had the chance to address any underlying causes and conditions of their disease. We found no long term or Evidence Based Practices inside of the greater Boston area. Northeast Addictions Treatment Center wanted to first address this issue then move on to other issues, such as lack of family therapy, evidence based treatment and safe living conditions. Northeast Addictions Treatment Center has been opened for approximately two months and has seen over 50 patients in that short time. With an evidence based practice, LMFT involvement in families and sufferer’s lives, 12 step immersion 80% of our patients have completed 45 days of treatment and a staggering 65% have remained sober upon completion. Additionally by opening a private facility we have opened up 50 beds in the public health sector which would have otherwise been taken up by the private sector.
