Middlesex Human Service Agency – Sullivan House is a residential recovery home for men, located at 65 Glen Road, Jamaica Plain, MA. Part of the Middlesex Human Service Agency since 1995, Sullivan House has for decades served as one of Boston’s best-known sober living houses, catering to the needs of men recovering from substance use disorders. It is partly funded by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health’s Bureau of Substance Addiction Services (BSAS)
The 25-bed facility is primarily focused on providing a long-term residential recovery program for men in the Greater Boston Area. It is affiliated with over 20 other Middlesex Human Service Agency (MHSA) locations all over Massachusetts, serving different areas and providing different services. This allows Sullivan House to recommend a wide array of evidence-based treatments to recovering individuals from all over the state. As part of MHSA, Sullivan House also participates in a number of local shelter, recovery, and nutrition programs all over Boston.
The program at Sullivan Houses is intended to serve adult men with substance use disorder. Detox, withdrawal management, and early rehab are not available at the facility and are not the focus of Sullivan House’s program. Individuals that need these, however, can be referred to other MHSA facilities that do offer those services.
The program generally only accepts men who are employed or are in the process of looking for gainful employment. While the facility does offer counseling, AA meetings, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and a selection of evidence-based approaches, Sullivan House is primarily a halfway home and sober living community.
Most Sullivan House program participants are referred by outside service providers. This includes the criminal justice system, detox and withdrawal management programs, other residential programs, and others. Participants also need to be 18 years or older at the time of their admission into the program.
The standard long-term residential program at Sullivan House is six months, inclusive of a two-week orientation process. A lot of freedom is offered relative to other Boston residential substance rehab programs, and participants need to be employed or actively looking for employment to stay on.
At their completion of the program, Sullivan House will attempt to further improve each individual’s chances at long-term sobriety by placing them in stable sober living environments to continue their healing.
Altogether, this makes Sullivan House’s long-term residential program ideal for recovering individuals that need time to heal but are unable to take time off work or afford conventional residential programs.
