Review by Contributors


The Gandara Center aims to improve the lives of minorities in Massachusetts by providing preventative and educational services at 45 locations throughout the state. Gandara Addiction Recovery Program (GARP) in Springfield is a residential recovery home for Spanish speaking males struggling with a chemical dependency. Detox is not available on-site.


Individuals must be abstinent from drugs at the time of admission. Though clients may admit themselves, most receive referrals from community organizations, the corrections department, or detox units.

Specific details concerning treatment models and therapies for this program are not currently available on the facility's website. The average length of stay is six to 12 months, after which clients may utilize outpatient counseling as aftercare.


Gandara Center does not publish details about its treatment staff at the time of this writing.


Details about living conditions and amenities at this 42-bed facility are not currently available on its website; however, the sole individual polled by to date on the accommodations and amenities at GARP provided a perfect five-star rating.


At the time of this writing, the only review of the facility submitted to to date is from alum M.R., who reported a mixed experience. Low ratings of one and two out of five stars were awarded for treatment effectiveness, inclusion of holistic treatment modalities, connectivity/visitor policy, family participation, 12-Step inclusion, faith-based counseling, and the staff's ability to treat co-occurring mental health disorders.

Perfect ratings were given for accommodations, meals, and cleanliness. The same reviewer complained that it "Is all about money," but also noted that it "Is easy to locate and near a lot of counselor[s]."


The network accepts many private insurers and MassHealth, and those who qualify may be eligible for financial assistance.
