Areas of Focus

Work at the Grayken Center encompasses a wide range of topics within substance use disorder treatment, research, and advocacy, including the below focus areas.

Grayken Center Clinical Resources

At Boston Medical Center, we recognize that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to addiction treatment. BMC has developed tailored treatment programs that meet patients where they are, be it in an office or on the street. All of our programs emphasize evidence-based treatments.

Training and Education

When clinicians across the country are looking to educate and train their teams, they turn to BMC. BMC has developed numerous programs for hospital-based and community-based providers so that anyone who encounters a patient needing help with addiction can offer them appropriate care.

Policy and Advocacy

The Grayken Center’s policy and advocacy leadership, guided by both harm reduction best practices and principles and our mission to ensure that treatment and support is available to every patient with substance use disorder, is critical to guiding the conversation on addiction policy in Massachusetts and beyond.

Addiction Research

BMC conducts high quality research that broadens and deepens our understanding of addiction treatment and care delivery so that successful approaches can be extended to more patients in need. The Grayken Center for Addiction at Boston Medical Center is increasing the pace of innovative research and evaluating new models of care delivery to create pathways to long-term recovery throughout the health care system.

Substance Use Disorder Research

Research is a core focus area for the Grayken Center. From finding new and better treatments for infants with neonatal abstinence syndrome to conducting research while caring for patients to investigating how to minimize harm from chronic opioid use for pain management, BMC research is helping to shine light on how to best care for patients with addiction.
