About Our Program
The MGH-Harvard Center for Addiction Medicine (CAM) is one of the major clinical research programs of the Department of Psychiatry at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
The CAM is located within the Outpatient Psychiatry Division and delivers clinical evaluation, consultation, and study-related clinical care in a multidisciplinary setting. The clinical environment at CAM is ideal for the conduct of clinical research in addictive disorders. MGH is an integrated full service primary, secondary, and tertiary care hospital network with access to large numbers of local patients, over 1,359,312 square feet of research space, a diverse population of thousands of basic and clinical scientists with whom collaboration is encouraged.
It also has an active Clinical Research Program developed specifically to support clinical investigators through educational support, grant review, statistical consultation, recruitment support, peer support, and direct project management support for clinical investigations.
Included under the auspices of CAM are MGH’s Addiction Research Program, the Addiction Recovery and Management Services (ARMS) and the West End Clinic.
Research and Training Programs
By integrating MGH's exceptional clinical, research and teaching capabilities, the Center for Addiction Medicine has expanded the boundaries of addiction research. The center’s expert, multi-disciplinary team translates scientific findings and applies evidence-based clinical strategies to create new models of care, leading to more favorable outcomes for this large, but inadequately served population.
