Our story began in the 1973 when Monsignor Joseph Farrell established a shelter for homeless alcoholic men on the Saint Mary’s convent. Renamed the “Resurrection House,” the facility was licensed as a halfway house and operated chiefly on contributions. Upon his retirement, the facility was renamed in his honor. In 1978, the facility began offering intensive clinical residential treatment for substance dependent males. Eventually the program was expanded to include outpatient counseling and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).  In 2019, Farrell merged with Gilead Community Services, expanding the services both organizations provide. Today, Farrell continues to play an integral role in the treatment of substance abuse.
