Who should be referred to the CATALYST Clinic?

  • Any patient (25 years old and younger) who has started to use substances.
  • We can see patients ranging from those who have just started to use substances to patients who you suspect may have developed addiction.
  • In order for our team to provide care, patients must receive primary care Boston Medical Center. The CATALYST Clinic team can help patients schedule and establish primary care at BMC in addition to their substance use care/services.

What can patients expect?

Patients will be scheduled to meet with a physician and social worker for an intake. Based on our assessment, we will make recommendations about a treatment plan that we will communicate to both the referring provider and the family.
