Review by Contributors


For more than 125 years, the behavioral health and human services agency known currently as Lund has provided family-centered support to women, children, and men in Vermont. Begun as a maternity home, the agency now provides substance abuse and mental health disorder treatment, residential rehab and transitional housing in Burlington, and an array of social services including adoption. The Lund Residential Treatment Program is the only resource in the state for pregnant and parenting mothers seeking treatment while living with their young children. Outpatient treatment programs are also offered.


Lund staff members collaborate to develop a treatment plan that pays special attention to the client’s role as a mother. Plans are integrative and women struggling with co-occurring disorders are able to receive treatment for both while in residence. Most women participate in trauma-informed group counseling, evidence-based therapies, parenting education, and skill development for independent living. A local clinic also coordinates access for those who need medication-assisted therapy.

Residents’ children undergo development assessment and receive care and referrals to access additional services. Assistance with legal concerns particularly dealing with care of children is also available.

Complementing chemical dependency treatment are case management, aftercare, random drug testing, and an array of social services provided by Lund or through other area agencies.


The facility’s website references a treatment team comprised of medical professionals, caseworkers, clinicians, and educators. Registered nurses, social workers, and counselors certified in substance abuse treatment are listed as common open positions. Lund’s leadership team includes multiple master’s level women.


The residential center has beds for 26 women and their children aged five and younger. Residents are generally in their mid-teens to mid-30s. Living spaces are described on the facility’s website as bright and airy with individual family bedrooms, a laundry room, and a communal dining room. Women participate in upkeep of the home through shared chores. Staff members are on-site 24 hours.


Despite the many decades of service and thousands of women who have gone through the Lund Residential Treatment program, very few reviews are published on established review websites. has not yet received any feedback from alumni.

At the time of this writing, 13 reviews published on the facility’s official Facebook page had an average rating of 4.4 out of five. Several were five-star ratings with no written review. Two elements referenced more than once were the overly strict nature of Lund’s residential program and the minimal amount of respite assistance available. One woman who wrote that she had spent a year in residence described “ups and downs” but ultimately a successful and therapeutic experience.[1]


The single survey response received from an alum’s parent provided an overall mediocre review but identified staff experience and the opportunity for family involvement in the rehabilitation process as strengths. One five-star review published on Google represented Lund as a safe place for children and a source of help for the reviewer’s daughter. Google had two other facility ratings of three and four out of five, both with no written review.[2]


Feedback from former and current employees was mixed. Three very positive Indeed reviews highlighted coworkers and the work environment. In a representative review, one wrote; “Lund goes out of their way to take care of all the people in their agency, on both sides of the services they provide.”[3]

On the other hand, a former staff member wrote on Glassdoor that while the work was satisfying and important, management’s inconsistency undermined staff.[4]


Lund is a nonprofit agency and operates on a budget built on donations, private fundraising, and public support. According to a 2014 Burlington Free Press article, more than 80 percent of costs are covered by government grants and contracts. Medicaid is accepted to cover some fees.

The facility was previously known as Lund Family Center, with Cornerstone Drug Treatment Center sometimes appended to the name, according to several information sources including a 2014 Green Mountain United Way list of community agencies.
