Parisi House on the Hill (Parisi House) is Santa Clara County’s first women-with-children residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.
It began in 1994 with just 8 beds for women and 8 beds for children. It currently houses 42 beds in which women and their children (up to age five) may live for six months while receiving client-centered, culturally-sensitive services.
Our unique treatment program addresses the specific needs of parenting women, pregnant women, and women with newborn-5 years of age. We value the unification of women and their children and understand the effects of addiction on the entire family : Both generations receive services because both generations are affected by parental substance abuse.
Staff are highly trained to assist with issues unique to the young recovering family through on-site programs which support both developmental and dually-diagnosed needs of our clients and their children. The goals of our child development program are to enhance a child’s growth, sense of trust, and bonding in a loving, nurturing environment during their 6-month stay.
We are privately set in a beautiful, rural area within Santa Clara County, California. Our original program, “House on the Hill,” was established in 1994, renamed “Parisi House on the Hill” in 2011 thanks to special contributors, Joe Parisi and John Sobrato, who shared a great vision for the expansion of an amazing program that works!
The mission of Parisi House on the Hill is to reduce the inter-generational transmission of drug and alcohol dependence of our clients, all of whom are mothers.
Parisi House on the Hill staff assist women and their young children in returning to a community as a clean and sober family, able to cope with the major issues in their lives, and have a high sense of self worth and positive family values.
