About Us

SUDI stands for the Substance Use Disorder Initiatives (SUDI) Office. The SUDI Office was developed and designed to oversee the overall strategic coherence of the City’s Substance Use Disorder (SUD) efforts, and coordinate and manage the day-to-day operations of the work. SUDI’s goal is to support those most affected by the issue through policy and systems changes. This includes strategies that cut across all aspects of the continuum of care model, i.e. prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery. 

The SUDI Drop-In Center is open Tuesday evenings from 5:00 - 8:00 PM. SUDI contracts direct service professionals who provide Outreach Services, Overdose Education and Narcan Training, Peer and Family Support, Treatment Navigation, and Referrals to Services. No appointment or insurance is necessary, and all services are confidential.

SUDI subcontracts a Resource Coordinator who is responsible for coordinating services for individuals and families in need. Contact Carieanne Salemme at (781) 629-9201.
