Hope House Residential Treatment Program is a 95-bed recovery home for male alcoholics and substance abusers located in Boston’s Roxbury neighborhood. The Program consists of two main phases and an aftercare component:

The 21 day program – clients remain close to the program meeting with their Primary Counselor several times per week to develop a plan for the remainder of their treatment. Clients will attend several groups per day during the 21 day program to assist with identifying long term treatment needs and goals.

The work program – upon completion of the 21 day program clients will begin job search. During the work program clients will begin to work on the identified needs and goals from the 21 day program. Clients will develop community resources and supports that will assist with achieving and maintaining recovery. As a condition of Phase II, all clients with income must pay a program fee in the form of rent at $119 per week or $17 per day.

Aftercare Group – upon completion of the Program clients have access to a weekly Aftercare Group. This group provides peer support around the transition from treatment to more independent living situations, assists to identify roadblocks in the process, identify available community resources, and maintains a connection to the Hope House Treatment Program in the weeks following completion of the program.

Hope House also offers programs for outpatient services, housing needs, outreach efforts, and professional development. Contact Hope House for more information.
