McLean Hospital’s clinical and research activities are organized into seven divisions. These divisions integrate the hospital’s three mission elements—clinical care, research, and education—with a focus on the rapid translation of science in order to establish, deliver, and disseminate ever-better, evidence-based approaches to care.
Led by world-class clinicians and researchers, each of McLean’s seven divisions have a primary diagnostic, research, or demographic focus and are laying the groundwork for further innovation as we continue to set a high bar in psychiatric care, research, and education.
Division of Alcohol, Drugs, and Addiction
McLean’s Division of Alcohol, Drugs, and Addiction, led by Chief Roger D. Weiss, MD, is designed to foster integrated, evidence-based approaches to prevention, early detection, and treatment of substance use disorders.
Addiction has become one of the most prevalent health issues of our time. From the current opioid crisis to the treatment of those dually diagnosed with addiction and other mental health illnesses, McLean offers a continuum of addiction care, including brief hospitalization for detoxification and stabilization, four residential programs, a partial hospital program, outpatient treatment, specialized programs, and a consultation service.
The division also includes robust training and research initiatives through the Co-Occurring Disorders Institute, the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Clinical Research Program, and the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship.
