Addiction Psychiatry

BIDMC's Addiction Psychiatry TeamBeth Israel Deaconess Medical Center launched the Division of Addiction Psychiatry in 2017 in part as a response to the opioid epidemic that has affected millions of lives in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the United States. The Division is directed by Kevin P. Hill, M.D., M.H.S., an addiction psychiatrist and clinical researcher, who has a long record of helping patients and their families while conducting innovative research that has led to improvements in addiction treatment and policy. The Division's team includes an addiction psychiatrist, social workers, two clinical addiction nurse leaders, and a program coordinator.

The Division aims to improve the lives of BIDMC patients and their families through patient care, education, and research. The Addiction Psychiatry team treats both inpatients and outpatients.

If you suffer from a substance use disorders, the Division of Addiction Psychiatry will work with you to reduce the effects of your addiction upon key areas of your life, such as relationships, work, and school.

A common saying in medical training is "never worry alone." Our staff will work to make sure that you and your family will not have to battle substance use disorders without considerable support and expertise.

We are currently accepting new outpatients with Primary Care doctors at Beth Israel and our APG sites for both one-time consults and ongoing short-term treatment for medication management and psychotherapy. Contact your physician to schedule a consultation.
