When You’re Ready…We’re Here to Help.
Hudson Behavioral Health was formed in 1980 (as Hudson Health Services, Inc.) to bring the first residential addiction treatment program to the Eastern Shore. Today, thousands of patients later, we remain focused on providing quality care and developing innovative programs to individuals address all of our patient’s needs.
Our program is “evidence-informed,” which means there is real science behind it. As you will read in the testimonials on this site, our patients learn to live drug and alcohol-free, building resiliency while rebuilding their lives.
We believe in you and in your power to recover. And, you can trust in us. We are accredited by the Joint Commission, which means you can trust the quality of care we provide and the safety of our facilities.
Go ahead – plant the seed of recovery. You will be amazed at how you will grow.
Enrich the mind, body, and spirit by providing evidence-based clinical care and recovery support services.
Hudson Behavioral Health will be a recognized leader in the provision of quality behavioral health treatment and recovery supportive programs.
We believe that all programs we offer must be of the highest quality. All programs are continuously evaluated, and the results guide ongoing program adaptation and innovation.
We are committed to having the peripheral vision to see others when they are struggling and helping them along their journey.
We seek input from those we serve on how we could do things better. We encourage staff to keep their pulse on community needs and bring their ideas back for program development and adaptation.

in their words
"My stay at Hudson was better than I expected it to be! During the COVID-19 pandemic I was nervous about my freedom being compromised. I was definitely wrong. I felt very comfortable and the staff treats you great and with respect. Just make sure that you treat them the same. Hudson gave me the tools to live a sober life and they can do the same for you. Just make sure you use them!"
"All the staff, counselors and techs were very helpful and respectful towards me. I am grateful for all the knowledge and motivation that Hudson provided for me. I am also grateful for peer support and the opportunity to go to the 3.1 housing to continue my recovery in a more structured environment. If you take this opportunity serious, Hudson can change your life for the better and I will forever be grateful.”
