O'Brien House

Our History...Saving Lives and Families from alcoholism and drug addiction

O'Brien House, Incorporated, was established August 19, 1971 to serve adult recovering alcoholics and drug addicts. The center was named for Paul S. “Pat” O’Brien, who spent 53 years of his life working with alcoholics and educating the public about the disease of alcoholism. It is a non profit organization to help the chemically addicted person arrest his or her addiction and return to the community as a productive person. Finding our clients employment is one of the elements of our recovery approach.

Clients are admitted to the O'Brien House by referral. The O'Brien House presently can accommodate 70 clients in a homelike atmosphere.
