About Shiloh House

Shiloh House is a Boston-based recovery home for women with co-occurring behavioral health and substance use disorders. The facility is staffed by a team with training in evidence-based treatment. The treatment program specializes in delivering individualized care. The approach at Shiloh House is primarily centered around trauma-informed and harm reduction.

Shiloh House offers an individualized approach to substance use disorder. Unlike many other programs that only focus on substance use issues, the one at Shiloh House takes care to treat co-occurring mental health disorders. Personalized, holistic approaches typically help to improve long-term outcomes for people with substance use disorder and other psychiatric conditions.

What makes Shiloh House unique?

Shiloh House is part of Volunteers of America – Massachusetts (VOA). VOA was founded in 1896 on the principle of helping those most in need. The level of care at Shiloh House reflects on the founding principles of the organization.

Through VOA – Massachusetts, Shiloh House is in contact with hundreds of different organizations that can provide program participants and alumni alike a better shot at life. Shiloh House is also unique in that it specifically focuses on women who have co-occurring psychiatric disorders, unlike many other rehab programs that only focus on a narrow set of treatments for substance use disorder.

Who is Shiloh House for?

Shiloh House serves a very specific set of clients. To qualify for the rehab program, you have to be a woman with both a substance use disorder and a moderate to severe behavioral health condition.
