Substance Abuse


As part of a comprehensive continuum of care and an integrated medical/behavioral approach to treatment, Lahey Health Behavioral Services is committed to providing high-quality mental health services that address a broad range of affective, behavioral, cognitive and perceptual disorders. The mental health service programs provide diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of both psychiatric and substance abuse disorders, as well as services to patients with coexisting substance abuse and mental health disorders. The goal of treatment is to restore patients' coping skills by involving each patient in an individualized program that meets his or particular needs. 

BayRidge Hospital in Lynn offers a continuum of chemical dependency and psychiatric services on an inpatient, partial hospitalization and outpatient basis. Acute inpatient psychiatric services and a partial hospitalization program are also available at the Leland Unit at Beverly Hospital.  

The Emergency Psychiatric Service is available to evaluate individuals who come to the emergency departments and require immediate evaluation. Other services include comprehensive outpatient behavioral health services at Addison Gilbert and Beverly hospitals and the DISCOVER Program at Addison Gilbert Hospital, which, similar to the partial hospitalization programs, provides structured outpatient addiction treatment. 

Lahey Health Behavioral Services offers exceptional, community-based mental health and substance abuse services of the North Shore and Lower Merrimack Valley.
