Addiction Immediate Care

Now open and accepting new patients- no referral required. Patients must call upon arriving.

The Addiction Immediate Care (AIC) center is the first treatment center of its kind in Massachusetts and nearby Connecticut. It provides immediate access to a full range of treatments for any type of alcohol or substance use disorder, all in one place. This allows you to get the care you need when you need it, along with all the ongoing supportive services required to successfully overcome addiction and reclaim your life.

Please note that the AIC does NOT provide overdose treatment. Anyone who suspects overdose should seek treatment right away at the Emergency Department. Rapid entry into follow-up treatment for long-term recovery can then be provided at the AIC center.
