Gardner is a relatively large city of about 23 square miles with a medium-sized population of about 20,000. It is well known for its multiple state parks and is a beautiful and relaxing place to recover from addiction. There are a couple of options for addiction treatment in Gardner.

Why Go To Rehab?

Research shows that addiction is more difficult to overcome addiction without professional help. Research also shows that people in Massachusetts are more likely to use illicit drugs than the rest of the nation. Therefore, it's important for those in the state to be aware of their options.

GAAMHA's Pathway House

GAAMHA operates the Pathway House, a highly structured residential program for males over the age of 21. Treatment here includes individualized treatment plans, counseling, case management, 12-step programs, group sessions, addiction education, relapse prevention, education on HIV and other infectious illnesses, random drug and alcohol screening, job placement assistance, and more.

Their Housing Program

In addition to the Pathway House, GAAMHA also offers the Pathway House Supportive Housing Program. The program is made up of two sober homes located in Gardner. They are designed for men who have completed a residential treatment program and who want to take the next step toward independent living.

North Central Human Services

North Central Human Services is an outpatient counseling center, treating substance abuse as well as mental health issues. You can pay for your counseling here using self-payment, Medicare, private health insurance, military insurance, and state-financed insurance including Medicaid. 

Outpatient counseling by itself is a good option if your addiction isn't severe enough to warrant inpatient or residential treatment. It is also useful if you have responsibilities you need to attend to daily, such as a job, school, or children.
