HALFWAY HOUSE FOR MEN
Russell House Mission Statement
Russell House is a non-profit halfway house dedicated to treating men in need of long-term care who suffer from the diseases of
alcoholism and drug addiction.
About Russell House
Russell House is in the early stages of transition from a monastery to a halfway house for men in need of long-term care from
alcoholism and drug addiction. A number of structural changes need to be made to the building before we can accept residents who
need our help. We hope to be fully operational by the summer of 2002.
Russel House will utilize a 12-step approach to the treatment of men suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction. These men will
learn job skills, living skills, and be given the opportunity to further their education. A minimum stay at Russell House
will be 90 days and can last as long 18 months.
Working together with local alcoholism and drug addiction agencies, Russell House can provide a unique and positive environment
for its recovering residents. Our commitment to keeping close ties with the AA and Matt Talbot communities will ensure our residents
continued support long after they have fully integrated back into society.
Russell House is located on twenty pristine acres of land in Newton, New Jersey. Originally it was a monastery used by the Benedictine Monks
of St. Paul's Abbey. A quiet and spiritual feeling abounds. Just off of Rt. 206, Russell House will serve the Sussex communtiy
and residents of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
