Josh Benton founded and launched The Strathmore House transitional sober living program in Boston, MA in December 2015 along with Mike Appel and Lee Fitzgerald. This program offers experienced staff, reliable services and competent care and is designed to provide male residents 18+ with a comfortable, safe and structured environment to recovery from addictive issues. We support residents in achieving long-term recovery and independence through individualized care that encourages them to create a balanced schedule, practice life skills, establish a solid 12-Step program foundation, address mental health and health issues with outside resources, and reintegration into the community through the attainment of vocational, volunteer and/or academic goals.
The Strathmore House is a remodeled historic brownstone offering character and features including an updated kitchen with a large dining room, two full size living rooms, two full bathrooms on each floor, three outside decks, central air conditioning and heating and wireless internet. The house’s Boston location is ideally located on the border of Brookline and Newton just off Beacon Street in Cleveland Circle. Additionally, it is around the corner from the Subway B, C, and D green line. Bike and walking paths with breathtaking scenery are just walking distance away along The Chestnut Hill Reservoir.
