CASPAR Residential Recovery Services

Our residential programs are designed to help individuals maintain sobriety while developing skills they'll need when they transition to the "real world." From interpersonal relations to job interview strategies and parenting skills, our programs give people the tools and support they need as they embark on a life of sobriety.

Men's Residences

Our Men’s Residences provide a six-to-nine month residential experience for men experiencing the struggles of early sobriety. Clients receive the building blocks necessary for long-term sobriety through individual and group counseling and community-based self-help groups. Case managers work with residents to build relapse prevention skills while teaching the principles of harm reduction and the basics of men’s wellness. Residential treatment emphasizes the importance of anger management, impulse control, personal responsibility, and a wide array of independent living skills intended to promote self-sufficiency.

Clients are helped to access benefits such as Food Stamps, MassHealth, and referrals for GEDs and to the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission for vocational training. Case Managers/counselors help clients with referrals for housing and aftercare. Upon graduation, clients are well equipped to practice their relapse prevention skills as they become reintegrated into mainstream community life and sober permanent living settings.

To qualify for residential services, you must be a man over the age of 21 with a history of substance abuse or alcoholism; clean and sober upon admission; and referred by CASPAR’s Emergency Services Center or another substance abuse treatment program in Massachusetts.

Womanplace is a program for women in need of six months of gender-specific residential treatment in a safe and nurturing environment, where they work on their recovery and learn in sobriety. In addition to their substance use history, many women entering treatment have experienced trauma and other social and emotional stressors. Others may struggle with the loss of children due to active substance use. Womanplace staff provides on-site individual and group counseling and referrals to social, medical, and mental health services in the community.

At Womanplace, residents have the opportunity to reconcile their past experiences, learn the basics about ongoing recovery, and experience recovery in a safe environment. They focus on developing healthy relationships with one another and with their significant others. Residents have the opportunity to learn from each another, establish community-based recovery supports that will sustain them after graduation, and practice their relapse prevention strategies as they prepare for the next phase in their recovery journey.

New Day

New Day is a residential substance abuse treatment program specifically designed for pregnant and parenting women and their newborns. We offer a supportive, clean and sober treatment experience in an effort to improve birth outcomes for infants, and to support these mothers in leading a sober and healthy life. New Day offers on-site individual and group counseling, support groups, psychoeducational groups, legal assistance, and specialized services for at-risk infants, as well as referrals to support groups and social and medical services in the community.

At New Day, residents learn to parent positively in a setting that instills information on child development, nurturing, and behavior management. Women receive prenatal, OB/GYN and pediatric care as they learn to live and parent alcohol and drug-free.

New Day residents have an extended stay so that they can practice healthy lifestyles after delivering their babies and solidify their recovery before moving on to sober housing. We assist residents in developing support systems in the community so that when they graduate they will have a well-established recovery-oriented network. In many cases, mothers are able to reunite with their other children because of their participation in the New Day program.
