Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Massachusetts

Finding a detox program in Massachusetts may seem overwhelming at first. While 81 detox centers may be fewer than many other states, Massachusetts is quite small. Most of them are located in the eastern part of Massachusetts. There are still plenty of detox options in western Massachusetts, but not as many as in the east. Aside from location, the particular substance someone used can determine the type of detox required. For alcohol and some prescription drugs, it may be necessary to enter a medical detox center. For other types of drugs, a detox that provides outpatient services may be sufficient. Once detox is completed, it is highly recommended to get aftercare in the form of substance abuse treatment.

Massachusetts has 422 rehab facilities that specialize in drug and alcohol rehab. 25 provide inpatient treatment. There are also 144 residential treatment programs. Massachusetts also has 290 outpatient drug rehab centers. No matter what level of care you need, Massachusetts has a drug or alcohol addiction treatment center to suit your needs.

Dual diagnosis mental health issues frequently occur alongside substance use disorders. Massachusetts has a fairly comprehensive healthcare system, but this only addresses part of the problem. A 2020 report by Mental Health America ranked Massachusetts at second place in the nation regarding access to mental health services. They also ranked Massachusetts second place for their overall national rank. This report only took into account the general population and did not address the rate of mental illness among people with addiction issues.

There are 259 dual diagnosis treatment centers in Massachusetts that can treat addiction and mental health issues. If someone is struggling with these co-occurring disorders, then it is highly recommended to find care for both issues. These centers provide targeted treatment plans that focus on behavioral therapy. This can greatly improve someone's chances of building a solid foundation in recovery.

Drug Abuse in Massachusetts

Massachusetts has been a hotbed for drug activity for several decades. The main problem in recent years has been a sharp rise in opioid overdose deaths. In addition to opioids, Massachusetts has one of the highest rates of cocaine overdose deaths in the country. In recent years, there have been increasing reports of cocaine that is laced with fentanyl. This is certainly a contributor to these overdose deaths. In 2016, the state also ranked at #8 in the top 10 states with the most drug overdose deaths in the country. As for specific drugs of concern in Massachusetts, the drugs heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine have been particularly serious issues.

Drug trafficking and distribution are also major issues in Massachusetts. In November of 2021, the Massachusetts District Attorney's Office indicted 13 people for drug trafficking, possession, and conspiracy. They were members of the Gangster Disciples gang and were charged with drug trafficking throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. The drugs they were distributing included methamphetamine, suboxone, and fentanyl. This is only the most recent and high-profile case in a decades-long drug trafficking problem in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Addiction & Detox Statistics

  • During the nationwide prescription drug epidemic, Massachusetts was consistently named among the top ten worst states for substance abuse and addiction. Since the heroin problem escalated several years ago, Massachusetts has been devastated. In addition to other large cities in proximity to Massachusetts, Boston has been found to be a major source of the deadly drug.
  • Statistics have shown a continuous, year-over-year increase in both heroin addiction as well as addiction in general. Each of the past several years has set new records, and the number of unintentional overdoses is the highest it’s been in eleven years. In other words, heroin abuse has escalated to such a level as to surpass the effects of the prescription drug epidemic in the early 2000s.
  • Compared to other states, Massachusetts has had a continuing problem with cocaine. Elsewhere in the US, rates of cocaine abuse and overdose have been in a decline. Cocaine use in Massachusetts has remained constant in recent years. In fact, it’s only recently that heroin has been detected in more overdose deaths than cocaine.
  • Over a two-year period, rates of heroin overdoses in Massachusetts increased by 76 percent. This is the most dramatic increase in overdose rates the state has seen in recent history.
  • The Massachusetts Department of Health put together a working group to assess the status and efficacy of the state’s prevention and intervention efforts. This group consisted of public officials, members of law enforcement, the loved ones of people struggling with addiction, and community volunteers. They reviewed the quality of treatment and the level of recovery support offered throughout the state. Since the task force released its report, there have been a number of new policies put into place. One of these is the requirement that all emergency responders carry naloxone in the hope of curbing the opioid epidemic.
