Our Social Work Services

At Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Milton, our social workers provide counseling and help with care planning to patients and family members. Our clinical social workers are a key part of BID Milton’s comprehensive care team.

Social workers offer support or referrals for:

  • Alcohol or drug use.
  • Anxiety, depression and other behavioral health issues.
  • Assistance and support connecting you to community resources.
  • Emotional support for family members.
  • Grief, loss and end-of-life challenges.
  • Coping with a new illness or condition.
  • Violence, abuse or neglect in personal relationships or the community.

Behavioral Health Services

When a patient experiences an acute behavioral health crisis, we provide care through a partnership with BILH Crisis.

Patients in the Emergency Department and inpatient units receive care from certified clinicians. This includes assessments and referral services.
