Why Signature Recovery

McLean’s Signature Addiction Recovery Programs provide world-class residential treatment for adults who are living with addiction to substances such as alcohol, cocaine, or opiates.

With intensive care provided by compassionate, expert staff, our luxury treatment programs—Fernside and Borden Cottage—offer evaluation and customized services for individuals whose substance use may be complicated by other mental health conditions.

Our dedicated intake staff works directly with individuals and their families to determine the best treatment program for each patient’s needs.

The McLean staff are amazingly trained in what they do. I have to thank my doctors, my nurses, and my mental health specialists for helping me get through a tough time like this.

– Former McLean patient

I was so afraid when I went in. I didn’t know what to expect. But it was such a comfortable, warm environment. I felt safe. It did not feel like I was in a hospital. I was actually glad to be there getting help.

I am so grateful for all the skills McLean provided me to live a happier and healthier life without alcohol.

Our Signature Addiction Recovery Programs are two state-of-the-art, luxury alcohol and drug addiction rehab settings.

A restored historic inn, our Fernside program is located near Wachusett Mountain in scenic Princeton, Massachusetts. Borden Cottage, located in Camden, Maine, offers discreet care in a setting that offers a stunning, panoramic view of Penobscot Bay.

Both programs’ serene accommodations are designed to support maximum engagement in substance addiction recovery. We combine comprehensive, world-class addiction treatment with exceptional amenities and the utmost discretion.


Fortunately, there are many ways to get help for addiction to drugs or alcohol. One proven model is residential treatment. Residential care provides 24-hour clinical support and gives individuals the opportunity to collaborate with their clinical team. This approach lets people maintain a sense of freedom and engage in a group setting with other patients.
