BAY COVE TREATMENT CENTER FOR OPIATE ADDICTIONS

The Bay Cove Treatment Center is an addiction treatment center focusing on opiate addicted clients with specialty programs for pregnant women, dually diagnosed individuals and persons who are HIV positive. The Center provides intensive, seven-day-a-week outpatient treatment to IV drug users. Clients receive medical assessments, daily dosing with methadone medication, weekly individual and group counseling, and comprehensive substance abuse education. Case management and referral services are regularly provided.

Clientele

The primary client population for this program is opiate-addicted IV drug users from the Greater Boston area. Special populations served include HIV/AIDS infected clients, poly-substance abusers, pregnant addicts, clients with a dual diagnosis of mental illness and addiction to opiates, and heroin users who are homeless.

Clients who are hard of hearing and require assistance in accessing Treatment Center services can utilize the Massachusetts Relay Service by visiting www.mass.gov/eopss/agencies/massrelay.
