Programs at CASPAR

At CASPAR, we offer several programs that provide services for individuals in different stages of recovery. Clients are welcome to come in from different stages in their recovery and within our programs they can choose and easily move throughout the different services depending on their specific needs.

Clients receive the building blocks necessary for long-term sobriety through individual and group counseling and community-based self-help groups. Utilizing a psycho-educational approach to groups, staff provide clients with the tools they will need to develop and practice a healthy and fulfilling sober lifestyle.

Through a comprehensive health education training series, clients learn the principles of harm reduction and are helped to access benefits such as Food Stamps, Mass Health and referrals for GEDs and to Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission for vocational training. We help provide an opportunity for residents to bolster and reinforce their independent living skills as they gain self-sufficiency, manage their time and money and reunite with their families.

Incorporating aspects of evidence-based supported employment and person-centered planning, CASPAR's Employment Services program assists clients in recovery from alcoholism and addiction to develop a job search plan tailored to their individual needs.
