Beatrice Bishop Berle (1902-1993), was an American physician, teacher and author. Dr. Berle, who ran a neighborhood health clinic in East Harlem from 1953 until 1962, took a pioneering approach to family medicine by treating the entire family for the effects of heroin abuse by a member. She also helped to establish methadone maintenance as a significant treatment for heroin abuse.
