Addiction Recovery Management Service (ARMS)

The Addiction Recovery Management Service (ARMS) is an outpatient treatment and recovery support service for families and youth ages 15-25. ARMS provides each client with an initial comprehensive needs assessment, treatment recommendations, and linkage to appropriate levels of care.

What makes ARMS unique is that both the individual client and parents are provided with a master's level clinician who offers flexible ongoing support and coaching throughout the client's first twelve months of stabilization and recovery.

Go to for a more detailed description of this unique program.

ARMS supplements the traditional inpatient and outpatient continuum and bridges the gaps in disjointed systems of treatment with leading expertise and high quality care management. Building on the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) medical, clinical, and addiction research resources within the Mass General Center for Addiction Medicine (CAM), ARMS facilitates comprehensive, research-informed, care maximizing the chances for youth recovery.
