Fundraiser featuring comedians and live & silent auctions!


“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."





The Lives We Impact

Basketball Tournament in Quincy, MA!

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

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.
