The Link House is located in the heart of downtown Newburyport, with immediate walking access to stores, shops, hospital and medical offices, churches and synagogues, YWCA, and numerous parks, river and beach access.
Although the length of treatment various, most residents complete the program within 6 months of admission.
The Link House is funded through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health-Bureau of Substance Abuse Services. After a resident client is able to re-enter the workforce, he will pay a portion of the treatment fees that equals less than half of his income. This money is then funded back to the Department of Public Health in order to care for future clients.
