About Us

In 1973, Monsignor Joseph Farrell’s established a shelter homeless alcoholic men on the Saint Mary’s convent. Renamed the “Resurrection House”, the facility was licensed as a halfway house and operated chiefly on contributions. That halfway house soon evolved into a professional residential, psycho-social rehabilitation center for the treatment of substance abuse. In deference to his visions and foresight to address the community’s needs, the facility has been renamed Farrell Treatment Center. Since 1978 the facility has offered intensive clinical residential treatment programs for substance dependent males. In 2000, we started an outpatient program. In 2007, our services expanded to include intensive outpatient treatment and we began treating females. In January, 2013 FTC hired two psychiatrists to begin treating our clients with co-occuring disorders. Today, FTC continues plays an integral role in the treatment of addicts and substance abusers by expanding our services with the merger in 2019 with Gilead Community Services.

FTC has a Zero Tolerance Policy towards any form of sexual abuse and/or harassment. If you are concerned for someone’s safety, or they have been victimized in our residential program, we can help. Call and speak to the Executive or Clinical Director, leave a letter or a note in a sealed envelope, or email us. All complaints will be thoroughly investigated and confidential.
