A Place where Humans and Animals Grow Stronger. Together.

Situated on a 115-acre equestrian estate located in Gardner, MA, our Men’s Co-Occurring Enhanced Residential Recovery home represents a departure from traditional approaches to substance use and other co-occurring disorders.
While residents of our home are provided a first class education on established recovery support options, they also learn something most programs cannot offer… purpose. The other “residents” of our working farm include goats, pigs, chickens, horses and more. All these animals greet new residents with a message they may not have heard in some time… “I need YOU”. Animals and crops know nothing about stigma, cast no judgment, and have no interest in the past of an individual. They seek companionship and a symbiotic relationship with our residents that provides returns which cannot be measured.
“Being on this farm is what saved my life.”
