About Marty Mann House


“This house and the women have taught me to live, love and have fun.”

At Marty Mann House, we use the best practices in clinical substance abuse treatment for women. We understand that women often show more severe symptoms of substance abuse. We know women have profound social, cultural and family issues that may discourage or prevent them from seeking the help they need. We provide women with a supportive therapeutic community where they can focus on their recovery and transition from treatment back into living a healthy life.

Our History
Marty Mann House was established in 1972.

It is named after Marty Mann, who was one of the early leaders in the national recovery movement and a major advocate for the elimination of stigma and prejudice surrounding alcoholism. In 1945, she founded the National Committee for Education on Alcoholism, now called the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD). She also helped start the Yale School of Alcohol Studies, now at Rutgers. In recovery from alcoholism herself, Marty Mann encouraged thousands of women to get help through Alcoholics Anonymous, and was tireless in educating the public about alcoholism as a disease and public health problem and that alcoholics are worth helping.

The home was previously located in Duluth’s East Hillside and served 12 residents.

Today, Marty Mann House is located at 2211 Greysolon Road in a historic mansion built by William and Mina Prindle in 1906. The new location makes it possible to serve 24 women, offering them the opportunity to find the treatment they need in a setting like no other.
