Finding Solutions, Strength & Hope.

Our Story

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).

Farrell continues to play an integral role in the treatment of substance abuse in the greater Hartford area and all of Connecticut

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.
