about us

The Keystone House is sober living home for young men in recovery, living together in mutual support. In this harmonious environment, individuals are united by desire to further their recovery from addiction. Founded in 2016, the Keystone house is dedicated to the memory of Matthew J Barba and his passion for helping young men battle addiction. Opening this sober home was Matt’s dream and his final project before he died on December 16, 2016.  He battled addiction and helped many young men on their journey of sobriety. He had a beautiful, loving soul and was an inspiration to many individuals. We will continue to honor his legacy and provide a safe, supportive environment for men struggling with addiction and aid them in their journey of recovery.

Before it was the Keystone House, the Justus Humiston House was built in 1769 and is one of the oldest homes in Hamden CT.  It has been renovated to be a safe haven for those in recovery from addiction. Located at 1715 Whitney Avenue in Hamden CT, It is a sober living opportunity for young men 19 years and up and offers case management, academic consultation and assistance with employment as needed. With 9 residents in recovery and one house manager, it's located on the bus line with close proximity to a bank, drug store, grocery store and fitness center. 

Clinical services are provided including onsite medical consultation, psychiatric consultation, regular urinalysis, crisis intervention, family and individual psychotherapy. All residents have access to nearby CT Healing Center where they may receive regular UA's, individual psychotherapy, medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy.
