Grayken Center for Treatment at South Shore Health

The Grayken Center for Treatment at South Shore Health is a collection of substance use disorder (SUD) and behavioral health services and initiatives.

Currently, the Grayken Center for Treatment offers care at our outpatient bridge clinic. We also support women who are planning to get pregnant, are pregnant, or are post-partum with their behavioral health and substance use disorder needs in our perinatal behavioral health program.

Both programs are located at South Shore Hospital. Additionally, South Shore Health provides an addictions consult service to support the diagnosis of and access to immediate alcohol and substance use disorder treatment.

These programs are supported by a generous gift from John and Eilene Grayken of Cohasset.

In the future, the Grayken Center for Treatment will:

  • Integrate behavioral health clinicians in South Shore Health ambulatory sites 
  • Establish a rapid care treatment location for people with SUD  
  • Launch a Mobile Integrated Health program which will include our Emergency Department and Emergency Medical Services working alongside local police and fire agencies 
  • Support our collaboration with Aspire Health Alliance (formerly South Shore Mental Health) 
  • Further our strong relationship with the Office Based Addiction Treatment (OBAT) program at Boston Medical Center (BMC)
