G – Gosnold

Text by Christina Galt

Gosnold was founded on Cape Cod in 1972 and has since grown to become an award-winning, nationally accredited nonprofit leader in the prevention, recovery and treatment of substance use disorders. The organization offers a full continuum of care at multiple facilities, beginning with Gosnold Treatment Center in Falmouth, which provides medically-monitored detoxification. Trained staff work closely with patients to treat their individual needs, while offering counseling, education and more to ensure their patients are on the right path to recovery.

Gosnold also has three residential programs. Its first residential housing facility, Emerson House, opened in 1974. Today, Emerson House is an extended care facility for women located in historic West Falmouth, just a mile from the beach. Emerson House also has a separate facility for pregnant or postpartum women on the property called the Emerson House Cottage where new mothers can have their babies with them while being supported by peers and staff, allowing them to focus on their own recovery.

The Miller House is Gosnold’s residential program for men that offers extended care and clinical services, and Gosnold at Cataumet provides inpatient rehabilitation services for men and women with substance use disorders. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, the team offers personalized care for each patient in a safe and comfortable environment. Gosnold also has sober living locations across the Cape, which offer a supportive living environment for those who may need further support on the road to recovery.

All Gosnold facilities are safe, operational and still accepting new patients in the wake of COVID-19. They are taking all necessary steps to protect their patients and staff from the spread of disease and are currently offering Virtual Partial Hospitalization Programs to patients in Massachusetts.
