Our story began in 1973 when Monsignor Joseph Farrell established a shelter on the Saint Mary’s convent for unhoused men experiencing alcohol use disorder. Renamed the “Resurrection House,” the facility was licensed as a halfway house and operated chiefly on contributions. The shelter was renamed the “Farrell Treatment Center” in Monsignor Farrell’s honor upon his retirement.
In 1978, the facility began offering intensive clinical residential treatment for men experiencing substance abuse challenges. Eventually the program was expanded to include outpatient counseling and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
Today, Farrell treats 275 clients through its residential program and an additional 750 clients in its outpatient program each year. With the most affordable care options in the area and staff with decades of experience, Farrell is so much more than a typical treatment center.
In 2019, Farrell merged with Gilead Community Services, expanding the services both organizations provide. As part of Gilead’s continuum of care, Farrell clients have access to mental health resources and other community services that Gilead provides. Through this merger, Farrell has been able to expand its services to Middletown.
