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.
