Over its 56 years in existence, Heartland House has provided a successful patient-centered social model program, adapting our approach in response to ongoing research in the field of addiction recovery. Our program looks at the whole individual — his needs, obstacles and liabilities, as well as his strengths, assets, resources and support structures – to help him adopt and maintain a clean and sober way of life.
Our results show the success of our program. In fiscal year 2015-16, we achieved or exceeded all our targets.

- received a Gold Rating from Guidestar, (the largest rating agency of nonprofit organizations) based on its review of our organizational operations, finances, measurements and results.
Our mission is to serve men recovering from substance use disorder and related co-occurring conditions. Our overall goals are to provide a living environment conducive to continued recovery, conduct an educational program that helps the newly recovering alcoholic/addict establish a long-term support system, and generate attitudes that enhance self-sufficiency, self-worth and an ongoing quality of life.
