The Brigham Health Bridge Clinic opened its doors in April 2018 to provide rapid (often same day) low-barrier access to patients with all types of substance use disorders (SUDs). Under the direction of Christin Price, MD, the clinic provides comprehensive addiction care for patients referred through inpatient services, the Emergency Department, and primary/specialty care practices. Multidisciplinary physicians from departments including addiction psychiatry, addiction medicine, infectious disease, and women’s health treat the underlying SUD with medications while social worker connects patients with services such as housing, food benefits, transportation, and recovery coaches who provide peer support as patients engage in treatment. After receiving this initial care—typically from three to six months—many patients reach a more stable stage of their recovery and are then “bridged,” or connected, to a practice or program that best meets their needs to maintain long-term recovery.
