About DotHouse Health

DotHouse Health, formerly known as Dorchester House, is a Boston-based health center that performs addiction treatment services. 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.

What does DotHouse offer?

DotHouse Health offers comprehensive services for mental health conditions, including substance use disorder. Outpatient and emergency services are available through DotHouse, as well as support for co-existing disorders. Emergency services can include a detox for those preparing to go into an outpatient rehab program at DotHouse, or an affiliated residential program.

DotHouse has a specific mission to serve Dorcester’s least fortunate and most underserved. Consequently, the facility offers support in a wide selection of languages, including but not limited to French, Vietnamese, and Spanish. It also has a wide selection of payment options available, including for people with no insurance or low income.

Overall, DotHouse is an excellent choice for people who need treatment but lack the means to afford the cost of other rehab programs. Start your recovery by contacting DotHouse Health at dothousehealth.org/services/behavioral_health.html.
