Where recovery gets real™

Odyssey House goes beyond helping you beat drugs and alcohol. We help you rebuild your life. If that sounds different than other treatment programs, you’re right. Because Odyssey House is where recovery gets real.

Get real about your health.

There’s more to recovery than just getting clean. We’ll help you get healthy again, too, with medical and dental care, fitness programs, support for your mental health and more.

Get real about your family.

At Odyssey House, you can stay with your children while you’re in treatment. And we’ll help you learn new life skills, so you can stay together and repair other broken relationships in your life.

Get real about your future.

We provide you with education and work skills training, outpatient services and available housing assistance, so you can step back into real life with a real future.

Get real results—for life.
