Earlier today, on Thursday November 19, 2020, members of the BPD Street Outreach Unit (SOU) were honored to welcome their client “Bobby” as he celebrated his sixth month of sobriety following extensive work and follow-ups by the unit and their partners.

This accomplishment comes as the result of a collaborative effort involving the West Roxbury District Court’s Section 35 Program, MA Alcohol and Substance Abuse Center, MA Department of Mental Health, Vinfen, Boston Emergency Services Team (BEST), Arbour Counseling Services, Pine Street Inn and the Boston Public Health Commission.

However, this achievement would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication put forth by “Bobby.”  We here at the BPD wish to join with all of those involved in his recovery process to congratulate him upon reaching this important milestone and wish him the very best moving forward.
