On May 28th, 2017 the Boston Globe and STAT News reported on patient brokers. They are middlemen who steer people struggling with addiction to unscrupulous for-profit treatment centers in places like Florida, where the treatment can be substandard, expensive, and detrimental to recovery. The article can be found here: https://www.statnews.com/2017/05/28/addict-brokers-opioids/.
If you work at BU and you or someone you love is struggling with alcohol, opiates, cocaine, or other drugs that may impact functioning at home or at work, we can work with you to help you find a treatment center that is reputable and accepts your insurance. Before calling the 800 numbers listed in ads for treatment centers that look too good to be true, contact us:
CRC telephone: 617-353-5381
Med Campus telephone: 617-638-5381
