The Hector Reyes House is a new model of residential substance use treatment. Our program provides services for 25 Latino men and it offers in-house medical treatment, along with intensive cognitive behavioral therapy. We address nationally recognized health care disparities, alleviating a shortage of treatment options for Latinos. We offer training and employment options designed to promote recovery, and reduce the odds of relapse. This is the only Latino treatment facility in the Central Massachusetts.
The mission of the Latin American Health Alliance is to identify and address the significant health disparities that exist for Latino living in the greater Worcester area. LAHA advocates for the Latino Community; researches and responds to important social issues that affects the Worcester area Latino population.
