A Lifetime without Alcohol or Drugs
All patients with a history of substance abuse or dependency must be willing to commit to a life without alcohol or drugs to be considered for liver transplantation. During one of your clinic visits, the social worker or psychologist will review our Patient Responsibility Agreement with you. You must be willing to agree to the terms and conditions of our substance abuse policy to be consider for liver transplantation here at BIDMC.
