IMPACT Substance Abuse Treatment

IMPACT is a Department of Public Health licensed outpatient substance abuse treatment program offering recovery based, goal oriented outpatient alcohol and drug treatment to individuals, age sixteen and older, and whose lives are negatively impacted by substance use.   The program’s goal is to assist clients and families in attaining and maintaining substance free lives.  Our objective is to provide an individually designed comprehensive therapy program to identify and meet the client’s individual needs.  Clients eligible for IMPACT services are those who do not need a more intensive level of care due to medical, psychological or behavioral problems. (e.g. drug and alcohol tapering needs, methadone maintenance treatment, residential services).  Referrals are offered to clients deemed ineligible for IMPACT.  Services include individual, group and family counseling, case management, and psychopharmacology services at our 54 Wasghburn Ave., Cambridge location.
