The Gavin Foundation is a multi-service agency providing comprehensive, community- based substance abuse education, prevention and treatment. Located in the South Boston neighborhood of Boston,we serve more than 4,000 individuals each year through our adult, youth and community programs. The Gavin Foundation works from a deep commitment to the community, including the widespread community of individuals and families in recovery.
We build recovery by supporting relationships among individuals, within families and within communities through independent programs — residential, outpatient, juvenile justice diversion, 12-step study, recidivism prevention, and parolee re-entry– and collaborative programs, such as a recovery high school, and recovery support for youth and young adults.
We strive to create effective prevention and treatment programs for vulnerable populations and innovative approaches built on fundamental principles and strong, productive alliances with the broader community.
