Please Read if You Have Traveled Out of State in the Last Two Weeks

Currently all Fenway locations require that any patient or clients who have lived in or traveled outside the state of Massachusetts in the last two weeks provide proof of a negative COVID test in order to be seen in person. This can be provided on paper or pulled up on an electronic device upon entry to any Fenway building. These results need to be from 72 hours before your return to Massachusetts or upon your return and before your visit to Fenway Health.

This applies to all patients and clients, regardless of the circumstances of your travel. We are instituting this measure to help keep all of our patients and staff as safe as possible.

Welcome to Fenway Health’s Behavioral Health Department

There are many resources available if you or a friend or loved one is struggling with addiction, whether to alcohol, drugs or gambling.

In addition, Fenway Health’s acupuncture program offers walk-in sessions available on a sliding fee scale to anyone who is concerned about their substance use and addictive behaviors. Starting July 27, clinic hours are Monday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:30 pm – 5 pm (you must arrive no later than 4:10 pm to be seen).
