Our Facility

Washburn House carries on a storied history in a building that was established in 1896. The funds came from Ichabod Washburn, a Worcester industrialist and philanthropist. Upon his death, Washburn directed that his money be used to provide shelter for people who had struggled with disease or misfortune.

When we founded Washburn House, we wanted to maintain the principles that were so important to Ichabod Washburn and help those who struggle with the disease of addiction.


Comfortable, Spacious Rooms

Washburn House offers facilities for men and women, with separate wings for male and female guests. Our Medically Monitored Detox space has 26 beds. The rooms sleep two, with shared bathrooms. For Clinically Managed Inpatient Care patients, we provide 32 beds, in singles, doubles, and triples. Each room as its own bathroom.


Dedicated Care for Every Guest

Detox and Clinically Managed Inpatient stay in separate parts of Washburn House. This ensures you receive the level of care and attention you need at each stage of your recovery.


Full Kitchen and Staff

Washburn House provides three meals a day, along with snacks. We don’t provide catered meals, as many other facilities do, because we want every aspect of Washburn House to feel like home.
Instead, our full kitchen staff prepares meals in-house. This means we can easily cater to your needs, including any food allergies or intolerances you have.

Your Washburn Family

All of Washburn House’s guests and members of staff are part of the Washburn community. That never changes, no matter how long you stay. All our guests are important to us and remain in the Washburn family, including those who have completed a recovery program and returned home.


A Place to Focus on Recovery

No matter what stage of recovery you’re in, we want Washburn House to be a place where the focus is on you and your progress. We provide a comfortable, welcoming environment, so you don’t have to worry about your surroundings while you’re on your recovery journey.

Space to Relax

We know recovery is hard work. And we know it’s best done when your mind and body have time to relax. That’s why we outfitted Washburn House with a 3D theater and a common area game room.

A Home Away from Home

Our roots in addiction recovery are strong, and we honor them by maintaining the charm of Washburn House. But we’ve updated Ichabod Washburn’s home and furnishings for a fresh feel, with modern amenities, so your recovery with us is comfortable—just like you’re in your own home.
