The center is based in Dorchester and has been a pillar of the community for over 126 years. The facility has been accredited by the Joint Commission for meeting and exceeding national standards for healthcare delivery, including in the area of substance use disorder treatment. It is also certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

While not a drug rehab center per se, DotHouse offers quality care for substance use disorder through its Behavioral Health department. As a full-service health center, the facility is also able to address all of the common physical and mental health issues associated with different types and severities of substance use disorder.

Notably, DotHouse can treat uninsured or low-income individuals. It is also affiliated with Boston Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital, and many others.
