One thing that sets these services apart is that they all seem to follow the model set by the Boston Public Health Commission, namely that they focus specifically on a certain type of treatment.

Additionally, Boston is home to one of the state's specialty drug courts, which focuses particularly on veterans. This is due to the fact that Boston seems to have a particular problem with veterans developing not just substance abuse problems, but also homelessness. Furthermore, it is a known fact that returning veterans are more likely to suffer from a mental health disorder, particularly PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). As such, the government is pushing intervention efforts to ensure these people have the opportunity to detox, and enter rehab to regain control of their lives.
Boston paints a unique picture in both the state and the country, mainly due to the fact that, despite concerted efforts and the existence of various high quality substance abuse treatment options, rates of substance abuse, and rates of related deaths, continue to rise.
