Shepherd House Boston, MA

Facility Rating:

My friend has been going there and I think it is a crock. They accuse people of being high and throw them out in the street at night in the winter. If you argue or just state facts they assess you as high and boot your butt out the door. Nice place to put recovering addicts and alcholoics out in the street. They don't even test to see if your high just accuse you. Not right not right at all. Some one has to look into this program something is not right. They make the clients get food stamps and take around $100.00 from each person in the houses and use for groceries. However by my counts the money doesn't add up. Maybe someone should call the DA's office. I don't know if the director of the program knows what is going on or not. I'm not a patient there my friend is and I have heard some real bad stories. What a shame. I want answers and I want them now.
