The Dennis Messing Memorial Foundation is dedicated to providing families and individuals struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders with support, resources, and financial aid to access 12-step based treatment facilities.
It’s important to us to be as clear about what we do as the help we provide persons in need. This list details a majority of our recent initiatives and information to find 12-step based programs.
“Earlier this year I sat by myself in a room accepting the fact that, most likely, I was going to die. I was alone and broken. The morals and values that I had deemed unacceptable had, at some point, became acceptable to me. I had little to no contact with my family. I was incapable of being a good father and was unemployable. I blamed everyone else and could not see that my own actions were killing me. That night, I picked up the phone and called a detox facility. They gave me a bed, thus, started my journey."

We hope to help as many people as possible who suffer from addiction and eventually open a 12-step treatment facility in Massachusetts.
