Walsh; and Jim Healey, president and trustee of the Yawkey Foundations break ground on Tuesday, Jan. 17 on the Dr. Lucy Sewall Center for Acute Treatment Services, a state-of-the-art renovation project to restore The Dimock Center’s aging detoxification facility and strengthen its comprehensive substance use disorder treatment services. The milestone event is the result of a successful $16 million capital campaign Building the Road to Recovery. The Dimock Center 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. The renovation will increase its 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.
