Circle of Hope (Alcohol Addiction Recovery Services)

Our Circle of Hope services are specifically designed to support the unique, individual needs of patients with alcohol addiction and associated disorders. We are the ONLY Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) in Massachusetts to offer such a suite of services.

Seniors with alcohol addictionWith more than 150 graduates in its first year of inception, our Circle of Hope services assist patients with long-term alcohol sobriety and recovery through an assortment of functions that improve your physical well being, arrest active addiction, and teach sober recovery skills.  Our one-of-a-kind strategy combines sub-acute nursing and rehabilitation with physical therapy and occupational therapy, psychological therapy, family support and individualized alcohol addiction therapy and support.

We are not an alcohol treatment center, nor are we an outpatient treatment center that focuses exclusively on addiction, detoxification or withdrawal management. On the contrary, the patients who are admitted to our Circle of Hope services have likely already completed that course of action through an inpatient program at a specialized treatment center elsewhere or through their local hospital, and now require further psychological and physical rehabilitation.
