Restoring Hope: Our campaign to save more lives

Restoring Hope

Addressing the substance use crisis in our community is more critical now than ever before.

Since 2018, opioid-related deaths are up by 36%. This crisis hits people of color particularly hard. Opioid deaths among Black men have increased by 122% during the same time period.

There is a lack of accessible, evidence-based treatment in Boston. Clinical Stabilization Services (CSS) is a critical step on the path to recovery between detox and residential recovery. Sadly, there are no post-detox treatment beds for men in Boston.




Through both public funding and private philanthropy, Dimock will restore and renovate the Dr. Marie E. Zakrzewska (Z) Building to create a state-of-the-art CSS on our campus. This is an opportunity to strengthen our treatment model, fill a critical treatment gap in the Boston area, and save more lives. Join us in this important effort.

On Tuesday, October 24, The Dimock Center held a ceremonial groundbreaking event to celebrate the creation of the new men’s CSS unit.

Thanks to support from caring donors like you, renovations on the Z Building have begun.

You can support patients in need of substance use disorder treatment by making a gift to the Restoring Hope Campaign today.

“Coming into these programs, you feel broken, lost.

To be able to have detox and CSS on one campus— with everybody working together as a team to support you—you can’t beat that.”

Eddie, Dimock Residential Recovery Patient
