Gould Farm is a therapeutic community that is designed to help adults with mental illnesses move towards a healthy balanced lifestyle.
About Gould Farm
Founded in 1913, the Gould Farm is dedicated to helping adults, 18 or older, with mental disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. They strive to create a family atmosphere and welcome their “guests,” as they like to call their patients, into a multigenerational community by joining in on meals, celebrations, and holidays. Each guest has their own private room and is provided with 24/7 support. Guests work closely with their social worker, residential advisor, work team leaders, transition counselor, consulting psychiatrist, and nursing office staff.
Gould Farm prides themselves on intertwining clinical care with other aspects of their program, including outdoor activity. This allows clinical care to not be limited to a certain time constraint per week since it is incorporated into daily activities. Located on 700 acres of rolling farmland, the guests enjoy hiking, gardening, and sports every day. Guests also get to experience basic farm work including caring for animals, tapping trees for syrup, and baking bread. Gould Farm’s mission is to help their guests reconnect with themselves and nature in their process of recovery.

A person with multiple mental health diagnoses, such as addiction and depression, has co-occurring disorders. This is also called a dual diagnosis.
This mental health condition is characterized by extreme mood swings between depression, mania, and remission.
Symptoms of depression may include fatigue, a sense of numbness, and loss of interest in activities. This condition can range from mild to severe.
Schizophrenia is a serious mental health condition that causes hallucinations, delusions, and disordered thinking.
A combination of scientifically rooted therapies and treatments make up evidence-based care, defined by their measured and proven results.
Expressive tools and therapies help patients process past situations, learn more about themselves, and find healing through action.
A non-medicinal, wellness-focused approach that aims to align the mind, body, and spirit for deep and lasting healing.
Individual care meets the needs of each patient, using personalized treatment to provide them the most relevant care and greatest chance of success.
Wellness philosophies focus on the physical, mental, and spiritual wellness of each patient, helping them restore purpose with natural remedies.
Non 12 Step
Non-12-Step philosophies veer from the spiritual focus of the 12-Steps and instead treat the disease of addiction with holistic or secular modalities.
Providers involve family in the treatment of their loved one through family therapy, visits, or both–because addiction is a family disease.
Providers using a strengths-based philosophy focus on the positive traits of their patients, creating a positive feedback loop that grows confidence.
Therapeutic communities allow patients to contribute to the success and progress of their community, through healthy behaviors or even basic chores.
