Carl E. Dahl House at Cass Farm
For Intakes Call: 978-830-FARM (3276)
Situated on a 40 acre hilltop in Athol, Massachusetts, our farm 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.
“A great place to work. Amazing clients and workers that do their darndest to give them what they deserve.”
