Stabilization - Substance Use Treatment Program

Stabilization is a 50 bed post-detox program providing intensive treatment and support for homeless men with histories of chronic substance abuse.

Stabilization assists adult males (21 years or older) with successful recovery and reconnection to the community. The goal is to provide short-term clinical and support services, maximizing the potential for successful recovery, and providing the client with an understanding and acceptance of the need for continued treatment to prevent relapse.

The program has the capacity to serve individuals who are dually diagnosed with a mental illness, as well as those living with HIV/AIDS or other chronic medical conditions.

Stabilization provides:

  • Post-detox residential program
  • Individual and group education and counseling for addiction and co-occurring mental health issues
  • Case management
  • On-site medical services, including psychiatric assessment and monitoring
  • After-care planning and placement 

Current third-party payers include BMC HealthNet, Neighborhood Health Plan, Fallon Health Plan, Tufts Health Plan, and Commonwealth Care Alliance. A limited number of beds for the uninsured are available.


Stabilization adheres to the requirements outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), ensuring the privacy and security of each patient's health records.

Wellness Initiative

The Wellness Initiative integrates a holistic approach to recovery into our post-detox programs. 

Recovery is about more than staying sober. It is a lifelong process of making positive changes in personal lifestyle to prevent future relapse and promote health and wellness. 

The Wellness Initiative addresses this gap, introducing the six components of wellness: physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a client's life.
