Roxbury, MA – The Dimock Center broke ground recently on the state-of-the-art renovation project to restore its aging detoxification facility and strengthen its comprehensive substance use disorder treatment services. The Roxbury-based health and human services organization houses one of only three inpatient detox facilities in Boston and one of 30 in the state, offering addiction recovery services for men and women throughout the commonwealth.
Construction management firm Timberline Construction recently began demolition inside the existing space to make way for the new detox facility. The renovation, designed by Platt Anderson Freeman Architects and managed by Pinck & Co., Inc., will increase the center’s inpatient acute treatment beds from 30 to 40, reaching an additional 1,000 people annually for a total of 4,000 patients served each year. The interior renovations will also create new program areas, including residential double-occupancy units, open nurses’ stations, integrated case management offices, multipurpose community rooms, integrated security, and an outpatient treatment area. The project will serve to attract and retain expert treatment providers and will stand as a leading example for future treatment facilities.
