About

Whittier Street Health Center is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 1290 Tremont Street in Roxbury Crossing, Massachusetts. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Whittier Street Health Center. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Whittier Street Health Center.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Whittier Street Health Center, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adult men, Adult women, Seniors or older adults, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Whittier Street Health Center have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Whittier Street Health Center. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Whittier Street Health Center can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Whittier Street Health Center by visiting www.wshc.org now.

In the year I've been going to Whittier Health Center for my medical, psychiatric, pharmaceutical, and Mass Health needs, I've been delighted by the care, friendliness, helpfulness, and competency of the staff at all levels. Waiting time to see either my physician or my psychiatrist is less than 10 minutes. The pharmacy takes longer: 30-45 minutes. Two months later. I'm still grateful for the competent and friendly health service I receive at Whittier, but if I knew how to remove one of the rating stars above, I'd do so because a patient has no way of communicating with doctors when outside the Center. If a patient has questions or concerns between appointments, he or she cannot reach Whittier, as it gives out only one useless phone number and provides no email addresses at all.

Dentist Department is the BEST Around in the area. I went for appointment with Dr. Abbe Finberg, and she is Outstanding. Compassionate and truly cares about her patients. I never had a dentist who truly cares and listens to the needs of her patients. Reffered another person to her and he said he couldn't believe how professional and polite she was also. Please give it a try, ask for her... 5 Diamonds Plus!

I have been a patient at Whittier since 2002. It has been wonderful to watch the transformation. The staff are friendly and caring and the building is beautiful. I also use the gym which was opened recently. I like the diversity of the staff and I use the medical and dental services. Great community health care center!
