About

Dorchester House is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 1353 Dorchester Avenue in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Dorchester House. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Dorchester House.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Dorchester House, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged 18+, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Dorchester House have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Dorchester House. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Dorchester House can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Getting treatment is the best option when seeking a life that is free of substance abuse. Get the help required now and start living the best life possible. Contact Dorchester House by visiting www.dothousehealth.org now.

Medical staffs are nice but the receptions at each department are very rude and unprofessional. Once a blue moon, you will get a nice one but the rest is slow and very very unprofessional. If you call to make your appointment, you will be on hold forever and when you thought someone is picking up, you got hung up on. You will need to go there in person and jump through hoops to make an appointment.

I have been goint to Dorchester House with my daughter for 15 years. Great service from everyone!!!!! Love the fact that Urgent Care is open 7 days a week. I had to take my daughter two weeks ago on Sunday morning and they were able to see her right away. My daughter LOVES Dorchester House and so do I.
