At the Edwina Martin House, women learn who they can be without the alcohol and other drug addictions that have defined their lives, distanced them from their friends and families, and hindered their education and employment. Since 1982, more than 4,000 women, ages 20 to 70, have begun to recover and find new opportunities for growth.
One of the state’s first recovery homes, designed specifically for women, Edwina Martin House offers services to 21 women and can accommodate up to 4 infants at a time. The House is located in the Brockton area, but welcomes women from throughout the state, from detoxification units and short term rehab centers.
Linkages with local health services enable pregnant and post-partum women the opportunity to begin recovery and motherhood simultaneously, with better health outcomes for both mother and child. By treating each woman with dignity while stressing personal responsibility, Edwina Martin House offers all our recovery mothers, daughters and sisters a chance for a new beginning.
