Rapid ACCESS (Assessment, Connection, Counseling, and Engagement with SUD Services) program aims to connect patients with substance use disorders (SUDs) to world-class, evidence-based treatment at Boston Medical Center. These programs are designed to improve and support access to existing addiction treatment programs at BMC and in the community. Our team consists of recovery coaches, licensed social workers, and recovery support navigators who all work in collaboration to help patients access evidence-based treatment for addiction.
Treatments & Services
The Rapid ACCESS team provides three main services:
- The Connection Hotline (617-638-5500) helps callers navigate the addiction treatment and support programs at BMC, makes appointments and referrals, and follows-up with patients to ensure they have the support they need
- The Recovery Coach team works with patients coming out of the Emergency Department or inpatient setting to provide coaching, motivation, support, and connection to long-term treatment. Recovery coaches offer both individual and group based sessions to patient at any stage of their recovery process.
- The Counseling Team provides individual- and group-based counseling to patients with addiction
