History of Fairview Recovery Services

Fairview Recovery Services is a path to recovery. We offer professional and compassionate care that is delivered along a continuum of residential and support services for adults living with substance use disorders in Broome and surrounding counties.

In 1970, The Fairview Inn, a rambling Victorian house overlooking the Susquehanna Valley on the east side of Binghamton, opened its doors to three people affected by alcoholism. With a budget of $4 per day, per resident, John and Janice Morrell realized a vision of providing safe housing for alcoholics who wished to maintain a sober lifestyle. From that modest start, Fairview Recovery Services, Inc. now operates a seven-program continuum of care with a budget of $5 million.
