Harbor House

About Harbor House


In response to a dire need for affordable and accessible community-based residential substance abuse treatment, forward-thinking business and community

leaders from the City of Jackson and surrounding areas established in 1973 the Harbor Houses of Jackson, Inc., a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation.


Our treatment philosophy continues to focus on rehabilitating the mind, body and spirit. We believe that addiction is a treatable illness, that it can be overcome

by following our recovery program and that residents of our community have a right to have access to high quality treatment services, regardless of

their ability to pay. Since 1973, we have provided compassionate care to over ten thousand clients. We are licensed by the State Department of Mental Health to

operate multiple facilities with a total of 107 beds. Harbor HouseThe State also certifies us to provide Outreach and Aftercare programs

and a DUI Diagnostic Assessment Service.


In recognition of our growth and plans for future expansion, we will begin doing business as Harbor

House Chemical Dependency Services. This better reflects our updated mission which is to offer a

continuum of high quality, affordable and effective chemical dependency treatment services and

programs for adults and their families, including those who cannot afford private treatment facilities.


We are so very grateful for the generous support that we receive from the Mississippi Departments of

Mental Health and Rehabilitation Services, the City of Jackson, Hinds County, private foundations

and individuals. We are where we are today because of years of widespread community support, the

dedication and commitment of the Board of Directors and the passion of our staff to offer high quality

addiction treatment services.
