The MGH 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.
We offer outpatient treatment through several programs:
