IMPACT Recovery Houses
Dedicated to supporting early recovery from alcoholism and addiction.
The safety and integrity of IMPACT Recovery Houses is our first priority. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any drug/alcohol use. Our philosophy stems from deeply seeded, core beliefs in the 12-step recovery process. We believe total abstinence from all mood- and mind-altering drugs is the foundation and basis for long-term recovery. We also believe the most effective force in recovery is the therapeutic value of one addict/alcoholic helping another break free from the chains of addiction. Following a 12-step model of living, all residents must attend meetings and obtain a home group and sponsor. We take pride in our homes, our neighborhood and our community. Together, we do things we could never do alone. We Do Recover!

IMPACT Recovery House for Women “Nikki’s House”
3408 Glen Avenue, Baltimore MD, 21215
Named in memory of Nikki Perlow, a beautiful young woman who died at age 21 from an accidental overdose. Founded in 2008, the Nikki Perlow Foundation honors Nikki’s memory by providing aid to young adults and their families struggling with the disease of addiction, and has been a wonderful supporter of The IMPACT Society. We were moved to name our women’s recovery house Nikki’s House.
Nikki’s House offers its residents a comfortable, warm environment, contemporary amenities and ample living space. More a home than a house, there is an atmosphere of caring, support and encouragement. Nikki’s House receives tremendous support from all facets of the female recovery community. www.nikkiperlowfoundation.org
IMPACT Recovery House for Men “John’s House”
3404 Glen Avenue, Baltimore MD, 21215
Named in honor of John Brannon, who is the father of Daniel Brannon, President and CEO of The IMPACT Society. After getting sober, John dedicated his life to helping people who now carry on his legacy. This home has been completely renovated and is filled with love, hope and promise. It was originally built around 1910 and it has been completely restored. We believe the restoration of this home is symbolic of the restoration of the lives of the men who live here. Recovery is a wonderful gift. It is a process, not an event, and on-going recovery requires constant vigilance, daily maintenance, and continued growth and nourishment. We learn to treat addiction on a daily basis so that we can live happy, joyous and free from the chains that used to bind us together.
