The Boston Public Health Commission’s Recovery Services
The City of Boston has a robust system of care for individuals, families, and communities affected by substance abuse. At The Boston Public Health Commission, we work to make sure this system is as easy to navigate as possible for those that need our support. In partnership with an excellent network of community-based providers throughout the city, we offer programs and resources aimed at preventing addictions and supporting the treatment and recovery of those impacted by substance abuse.

MassINC was founded in 1996 by a small group of civic and business leaders who believed that Massachusetts was missing accurate, thorough, and unbiased data to inform thoughtful policymaking. They set out to create an organization that produced research and supported policies dedicated to creating a ladder to the middle class for families in Massachusetts. Over the years, MassINC expanded its reach, employing civic engagement strategies to help move the best ideas, supported by hard data, into public policy. In addition to independent research, the MassINC Policy Center now encompasses the Criminal Justice Reform Coalition and the Gateway Cities Innovation Institute. Greg Torres was named president of MassINC in 2007 and still leads the organization today.
