About the program

Established in 1973, Hurley House has provided more than four decades of intensive recovery services to community members affected by substance use disorders.  With a team of highly-trained counselors, Hurley House provides an array of evidence-based treatment options to 20 adult men.  Having joined MHSA in 2018, Hurley House is also the newest addition to MHSA’s substance use disorder recovery network. 


Over the course of up to six months, Hurley House clients are given the individualized clinical support needed to pursue their recovery and achieve a variety of personal and programmatic goals.  While in the program, clients are given access to various outside referrals, in addition to specialized in-house services, such as group meetings, individual counseling sessions, financial education, career support, life skills training and more.


Upon successful completion of the program, Hurley 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.
