Boston Childrens Hospital is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 300 Longwood Avenue in Boston, Massachusetts. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Boston Childrens Hospital. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Boston Childrens Hospital.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Boston Childrens Hospital, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adolescents, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Boston Childrens Hospital have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Boston Childrens Hospital. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Boston Childrens Hospital can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Boston Childrens Hospital by visiting now.

I can't say enough about how fantastic the doctors and nurses are. So caring, attentive, kind, thorough, and overall amazing. They went above and beyond. Somehow they made us feel like we were a priority even in such a busy hospital with so many complex cases. We are so thankful our child was treated and recovered here.

Amazing stuff. My son goes to see Dr. Harini who has been great, she is good at explaining things to you and really getting your opinion and what you want to do for care and treatments. My son has been in the hospital 4 times here and overall has been a good experience.

OMG!!! My family has been patients for years here. For starters they ended up changing our family appointment to Saturday, which worked out perfectly because I wouldn't have to pull them out of school during the week. Unfortunately, my little one had her first cavity and Children's Dental Department has brought up to another level in the most fantastic way. Saturday visiting room was totally quite and each staff member gave us VIP service all the way up!!! Dr. Roslyn, was such a professional sweet heart. She explained the entire process and showed my daughter all the instruments they would be using. They even had an IPAD showing the Frozen movie playing above the patient dental chair. Ann & Lily the hygienist were excellent and Dr. Cooper was super as well. Our visit for 3 children took an hour and 15 mins. Lastly Dana the Administrative Coordinator is dynamic as always.

Dr. Marinoff is a very compassionate doctor. Some highlights that really stood out to us are attention to detail, very good listener, caring for patients overall outcome, and yet very professional. She always cared to check in with the patients and their families to make sure their concerns were heard and followed through with the rest of the care team. Very happy to have her as our doctor and very grateful that our paths crossed!

The doctors at this hospital are amazing, literally geniuses. However the standard of excellence with the administrative staff and booking an appointment/checking in is subpar-poor. I have had several problems getting in touch with staff and frequently the administrative staff (in multiple offices) had been rude and hard to work with work with. I would expect more from the number one hospital in the country. I can say this too because I not only am a patient but I also worked for Boston Children's Hospital.

I just want to report that the kinetic sculpture (a machine with many balls rolling on rails and being elevated by motorized chains, colliding with wooden boards and xylophone blocks to make sounds, attracting children) was removed. The removal is OK, because the kids like to touch even kiss the glass container of the machine, this is dangerous in a hospital.

LOVE my surgeon there (Dr. Novais) and had excellent nurses the entire week post-op that I had to stay. Dr. Novais before during and after took time to educate me on options and potential outcomes and what was going on with my hip. He is very genuine with his care.

They save lives and give their hearts and souls to caring for their patients and their families - and they all have this beautiful gift of working with children all with a warm demeanor when you meet them! Prayers and blessings to you all for your passion and dedication to medicine and those you care for 🙏❤

My wife is a patient here, and has been coming here since she was 8 or 9. She had an above the knee amputation, and the stay has been great. My only frustrations are with the cost of the food, Starbucks doesn't allow us to use our free drinks, and the parking program isn't completely explained. If you qualify, you can either come and go throughout the day, or get overnight parking,not both.
