Information about Sober Living in Quincy Massachusetts
This is an article on how to find sober living in Quincy Massachusetts. My name is Dan Brady and I live in the Washington Square Park community in Boston’s North Shore. For many years, I was the Assistant Director of Housing and Community Development in Boston’s Back Bay. Now I am the Executive Director of Transitional Living in Quinssey, Massachusetts. “Brady’s Place” is my term to describe our half of the transitional living facility that exists in our community.
The term “sober living” refers to a residential short-term treatment program for persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders who have experienced the loss of their capacity to function on their own for a period of time. Our mission is to prevent relapses in individuals who are in need of help for any of these reasons. Sometimes a person makes a conscious choice to enter a program for the purpose of receiving help, and sometimes circumstances such as unemployment, domestic violence, child abuse, or catastrophic life events conspire to push a person with co-occurring mental disorders into a state of crisis. Our goal is to get those persons back on their feet and to reintegrate into the community so that they can enjoy living in the same environment as everyone else.
A major portion of our budget goes to providing services to persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders. Our focus is to make certain that they are able to live as independently as possible. The majority of our residents are elderly, disabled, or otherwise unwell. That is why we have a very small intake rate; we want them to succeed in regaining their independence and leading happy and productive lives. If you would like to sign up for our residential short-term treatment program, please contact us at anytime.
