Substance Use Disorder Initiative
The Mass General Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) Initiative is focused on redesigning care at all levels to ensure that patients have access to evidence-based treatment and recovery support without stigma, readily available and standardized across the system.
4,600 people participated in efforts to assess community health needs;
form action plans on housing, financial mobility, behavioral health & more.
100% of MGH Youth Scholars graduated high school; 87% matriculated
to college & 75% graduated college within 5 years—higher than national averages for urban youth.
The CareZONE mobile health program had 3,800 contacts with people on
Boston streets suffering from SUD & exchanged 41,000 syringes.
