HCRC Chelsea’s medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program provides comprehensive substance use treatment. We serve individuals affected by opioid addiction, improving their lives and those of their families and loved ones. Our patients get help from a care team of doctors, nurses, social workers and counselors. The MAT program offers individualized care, which includes individual, group and family counseling. Patients interested in services may call or walk in to set up an immediate screening.
At our practice, we promote a safe, judgment-free environment. Your status as our patient will stay confidential throughout your time with us. We train every staff member to treat patients with dignity and respect, just as they want others to treat them. As your care provider, we aim to support you with the services you need. Please learn more about HCRC Chelsea by reading the information below.
Every HCRC location provides comprehensive treatment that focuses on all aspects of addiction. HCRC specializes in MAT treatment with methadone, a medicine that reduces withdrawal symptoms. At first, the patient visits our clinic every day to receive their medication, giving them the structure they need to maintain treatment. With fewer withdrawal symptoms, the patient can focus on developing recovery skills.
Since methadone is safe to take during pregnancy, we can provide coordinated pregnancy treatment. Expecting mothers will receive care that considers the well-being of their children.
Each patient at HCRC Chelsea learns how to manage the causes and consequences of addition through therapy. Our individual counseling services allow you to explore past traumas and underlying mental health conditions. By addressing your opioid use disorder’s cause, we can help you change your opioid-related thoughts and behaviors. During counseling, you will also learn coping skills to reconnect with others and manage stress. We will work toward integrating you back into the workforce and community as a productive member of society.
To help patients outside the clinic, we provide community learning opportunities. Our Young Persons Treatment Initiative gives younger patients the chance to connect with peers. They learn about opioid use disorder treatment in a welcoming setting.
We also welcome patients to visit us for guest medication services. If you need to access your medication from a different clinic than usual, let us help. Please keep in mind that we will need information such as your SSN and state ID to serve you.
Chelsea is less than three miles from Boston, and Chelsea Station serves the MBTA Newburyport/Rockport Line. You can find it near Bellingham Square, north of downtown Chelsea.

Every patient at HCRC has an individualized and comprehensive treatment plan. During your first appointment, we will complete an intake, where we determine your clinical and medical needs. We use that information to create a personalized strategy to help you on the path to recovery. Throughout future appointments, we will modify your treatment plan to meet you where you are at in the recovery process.
When you receive our services, you get treatment from a facility with multiple certifications. In compliance with the law, we have federal certification and state licensing. We also have accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Our regular audits from CARF help us go beyond the industry’s standards of care. At HCRC, we dedicate ourselves to continual improvement and patient satisfaction.
We strive to make HCRC Chelsea a comforting environment for everyone we serve. If you or a loved one needs help, we can provide effective and personalized care.
