Zack's House

 
Zack's House is our staffed, transitional residential program for seven young men 18 to 26 years old to live and grow in a sober environment. Lowell House provides supportive case management and programs in a beautiful, completely renovated home in the Pawtucketville area of Lowell, MA.

A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR YOUNG MEN IN RECOVERY

Zack's House was purchased and designed by Lowell House, a leader of addiction treatment services for over 47 years, to fill a major gap in recovery services to young men in early recovery. Experience and research data clearly demonstrates that young men in their 20s are particularly vulnerable to high risk behavior leading to more frequent relapse and increased risk for overdose. Typically, young men in early recovery go from the highly structured recovery home environment to independent living in a sober house with no transition and no community supports. Zack's House fills that dangerous gap by providing a transitional program that includes: 

  • Daily meetings with an on-site recovery coach to review their recovery plan, work on developing job and independent living skills and plan for a sober future.
  • Clinical consultation as needed with Clinical Director.
  • Gender/Trauma-specific clinical groups as indicated.
  • Health and Wellness groups and activities
  • Relapse Prevention and Recovery Maintenance groups

 

PRE-ENTRY CRITERIA

  • Completed a detox.
  • 6 months in recovery.
  • Active participation in recovery services or have completed a recovery program.
  • Willing to abide by house rules.
  • Active participation in a productive day: employment, school, volunteer work, recovery activities, etc.

THE STORY OF ZACK'S HOUSE

The name “Zack’s House” is a tribute to the memory of Zachary Gys, a beloved twenty-one-year-old Lowellian who succumbed to a drug overdose in 2013. His family and friends recognized the gap in services for this young adult population and founded Zack’s Team Foundation. This foundation has partnered with Lowell House to provide additional housing for young men from the Greater Lowell area. Each young man will have completed a detox and is actively participating in recovery services or completed a recovery program. It is expected that each young man has the desire to continue living and working on their own recovery in a community setting that fosters such growth.
