Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Massachusetts

Massachusetts has been a hotbed for drug activity in recent years, particularly heroin and other opioids. The state is ranked in the top 10 for drug overdose deaths due to heroin and fentanyl as well as the top 10 for heroin and fentanyl being found in autopsies even though it was not ruled as the primary cause of death. 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, and 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. While the drug problem in Massachusetts is increasing, the availability of help is also increasing. Massachusetts has one of the most comprehensive healthcare systems in the country, and there are dozens of drug and alcohol detox centers available to help someone begin their journey to recovery. Additionally, these centers can help someone find continuing care and treatment once the detox process has been successfully completed.

Massachusetts Addiction & Detox Statistics

  • During the nationwide prescription drug epidemic, which was before the “heroin epidemic” had occurred, Massachusetts was consistently named among the top ten states for rates of 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 2000s and early 2010s.
  • Compared to other states, Massachusetts has had a continuing problem with cocaine. Elsewhere in the U.S., rates of cocaine abuse and overdose have been in a decline, but 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, the most dramatic increase in overdose rates the state has seen in recent history.
  • The Massachusetts Department of Health put together a task force that consisted of public officials, members of law enforcement, individuals with addicted loved ones, and community volunteers. The purpose of the task force was to assess the status and efficacy of the state’s prevention and intervention efforts, the quality of treatment, and the level of recovery support offered. Since the task force released its report, there have been a number of policies put into place — such as the requirement that all emergency responders carry Naloxone — in the hope of curbing the opioid epidemic.

STATE Detox Resources

  • The Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery — also known as MOAR for short — is arguably the most popular addiction-focused organization in the state. The group is a coalition of the recovery community, friends and family members of addicts, and concerned citizens who evangelize the importance of addiction education for prevention.
  • The Massachusetts Association of Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Counselors is a sibling organization of NAADAC, which is an association specifically for professionals in the addiction recovery field. In Massachusetts, this group consists of addictions counselors and treatment providers who are using research and education to develop new treatment methods and improve the addiction treatment methods currently available.
  • Learn to Cope is state-funded, not-for-profit, peer-led support group that was founded in 2004. Its mission is to collaborate with communities throughout Massachusetts to enhance education and awareness as prevention efforts for alcohol and drug addiction.
  • The Massachusetts Coalition for Addiction Services is a unique organization because, as its name suggests, it’s a coalition of numerous other organizations, including several on this list. Although this group has many goals, the most important is to improve funding for addiction treatment, research, and education throughout Massachusetts.
  • The Massachusetts Alliance for Mental Health is an offshoot of NAMI, the National Alliance for Mental Health. While many of the other groups on this list focus on advocacy, this organization aims to be a resource for communities throughout Massachusetts, helping them to learn about addiction and the various treatment options that are available.
