Program Type: 

Residential substance use disorder recovery home for men.


Sullivan House is a 25-bed substance use disorder recovery home that has served adult men recovering from addiction for over 30 years.  The program helps its residents reestablish and maintain a sober lifestyle while renewing their careers and following through on responsibilities to their families and communities. Sullivan House counselors are specially trained to address the unique needs of clients while employing appropriate, effective and lasting treatment strategies.
Following a two-week orientation process, clients typically spend the next five-and-a-half months working towards a variety of personal and programmatic goals, in accordance with house rules.  While in the program, clients are given referrals to various medical, mental health and other professional service providers, as needed.  Clients also attend AA meetings, group meetings and individual counseling while pursuing or maintaining meaningful employment. 
Upon successful completion of the program, Sullivan House employees assist in placing clients into stable, sober living environments where they can continue to thrive as productive members of their individual networks and communities.
