Men's Program Services

The Program
The David J. Riordan’s Hobie House was founded in 1991 as a licensed and certified 25 bed residential facility. This unique recovery home is designed and devoted specifically for men 18 years and older. Here, residents are given the opportunity to experience recovery in an atmosphere that promotes a sense of well-being, fosters mutual respect and affords an opportunity for self-reflection. Because the program is set in a home-like environment, the residents of the “Hobie House” will enjoy the comforts of home. Our recovery home approach provides a structured clean and sober environment. The program’s social model nature emphasizes learning through “doing” and “experiencing” while providing positive role modeling. Through this approach, the program enables the residents to benefit from the most valuable resource for recovering substance abusers: the experience, strength and hope of fellow persons in recovery. One key to the success of the program is the caring and sharing that takes place on an informal level among the residents.

How We Work
Here at the “Hobie House”, we recognize that the decision to seek treatment services often is not easy and can occur at any time of the day or night. For this reason, admission into the program is simple, easy and starts with an initial screening process.
