About McLean Fernside

McLean Hospital, founded in 1811, is described by Harvard Medical School as "a world leader in the treatment and study of psychiatric illnesses" and "the nation’s oldest and foremost research program in a psychiatric hospital setting." This clinical expertise and evidence-based research extends to the entire continuum of care that McLean offers for addiction treatment, including the luxury treatment offered at McLean Fernside.

The McLean Signature Recovery Programs—Fernside and Borden Cottage—are luxury programs specializing in treating men and women who have previously completed a treatment program but have relapsed or are at risk to relapse, who are ambivalent about making the changes needed to maintain sustained recovery, or who have tried other treatment programs but were not ready for and/or satisfied with the previous care.
