Services: V I C T O R Y P R O G R A M S Inc., is a Boston-based multi-service agency providing individualized treatment programs to people recovering from alcohol and drug addiction, particularly those with psychological and medical problems including AIDS and HIV disease. Victory Programs houses are within the heart of our Boston neighborhoods including, Jamaica Plain, South End, Dorchester and Mattapan. Each has a good-sized living room filled with big, comfortable chairs ample for large group meetings. A large kitchen surrounds a table big enough for everyone to have dinner together, and bedrooms are decorated with handmade quilts and framed prints. What's unique about Victory Programs houses, however, are those who reside there. Inside each Victory Programs residence are people who are committed to unlocking the door to recovery from alcoholism and addiction.
Clients: Victory House - a 4 to 8 month residential substance abuse treatment program for men from all cultural backgrounds.
