About Us

Our Program

Most of the women who enter the Edwina Martin House have tried before but  have failed to achieve long-term sobriety. The intensive program at Edwina  Martin House, coupled with nurturing support services, enables each woman to  focus exclusively on her recovery for up to 6 months by participating in a range  of therapies: Individual Counseling, Group Therapy, 12 Step Discussions, Violence Against Women Training, MAT Education, Family Systems Education, Worforce Re-Entry >

Our History

     Brockton resident Edwina L. Martin was a long-time volunteer and activist  for local alcohol and drug programs. She ran an information and referral center  and provided personal assistance and advocacy for the sick and suffering. Her  years of effort culminated in the establishment in 1982 of the women’s recovery  house which bears her name. Catholic Charities of Boston operated the House  before turning it over to the non-profit EMH Recovery, Inc. in 2004.  

Our mission

Our Mission is to support Women, Pregnant Women and Post Partum Women through the process of sobriety.  We use the 12 step model of Alcoholics Anonymous in conjunction with motivational interviewing and self esteem building. In addition to helping women achieve sobriety we are looking forward to establishing sober housing in the near future to help women transition safety back into the community.
