About Us

Stonington Institute began serving people who struggle with alcoholism and addictions in 1957 as Starlight Farms. The main campus in North Stonington was operated as a fruit and vegetable farm by a WWII fighter pilot who lived on the property with his family until his children left the farm. The property was sold to a neighbor who was among the founders of the AA movement in Connecticut and who created a program where alcoholics could work the farm and learn the 12 Steps.
