Vineyard House Expands Footprint

For most Vineyarders, driving off the ferry back onto the Island is a moment filled with excitement or a sigh of relief. But for those returning from detoxification units for alcoholism and addiction it is a time of temptation and anxiety.

Community Support Is Key to Treatment

Martha’s Vineyard leads the State in unhealthy alcohol consumption (Vineyard Gazette, March 28, 2013) but Martha’s Vineyard is also a leader in helping people gain long term recovery through its sober living facilities. The Vineyard House plan to build a new and expanded sober house campus is a very strong statement that the entire community will come together to support individuals who are ready to recapture their lives.

In 1997, Vineyard House opened its doors for the first time. Last week the organization added more doors, closing on the purchase of a third house.

Like its first two homes, the Oak Bluffs house will serve as a place where Islanders can recover from drug and alcohol addictions and begin rebuilding their lives on the Vineyard.
