The Plymouth House Difference

The Plymouth House is a 12-Step retreat and addiction treatment center nestled in the picturesque foothills of the White Mountains in New Hampshire. Our campus sits on 60 acres of natural land and is an idyllic place for individuals to begin laying the foundation for lifelong recovery.

Since 2002 The Plymouth House has been utilizing an intense 12-Step process to help individuals recover from addiction. The Plymouth House’s founder, Tom S., believed wholeheartedly in the power of the 12 Steps to transform lives. The Steps give individuals the spiritual and emotional tools necessary to lead purposeful, joyful, loving lives.

In 2021, The Plymouth House joined Guardian Recovery Network, a national leader in substance use disorder treatment. The Plymouth House has combined its expertise as a successful 12-Step retreat with Guardian’s world-class medical and clinical care. We have expanded our medical and clinical staff to include primary care physicians, licensed psychiatrists and experienced psychologists. In addition, we are now able to provide access to treatment services using private health insurance, which can mean little to no out-of-pocket cost for guests. 

The Plymouth House’s core 12-Step process combined with expert medical and clinical care, provides the strongest foundation for clients seeking long term recovery.

I was absolutely terrified at first but once I got there and met the staff it changed my life.. they had so much compassion, understanding, and care……they taught me how to live in the present and to forgive myself from the past… they gave me all the right tools to become the healthy sober man that I am today! Look forward to going back as a guest speaker a year from now

Even with clinical the place is a cult. Granted, it is a 'good' cult that, like AA, encourages you to replace your disorder (alcohol, workahol, pharmacol, assholeahal, etc.) with humility and spirituality. You get out of it what you are willing to put into it. If you're not willing to take orders from a 19 year HS graduate with an inferiority complex, don't attend. They also don't allow guitars.

Like a child, I didn’t want to go. Fought it and they still loved me back to life. 30 days later I feel like those broken pieces are starting to mend thanks to all the amazing people who helped me believe in me when I was incapable

Plymouth House was an amazing experience for me, and my family. Without the love and support of the incredible people there I doubt I would have the joy I have found in my recovery. Thank you from the depths of my soul.

The Plymouth House is unlike any other rehab I have ever been to, and I’ve been to my fair share. The staff there is truly caring about each individual and caters to each guests’ individual needs. I can honestly say I would want nothing more for any friend or family member struggling with addiction to attend the Plymouth House. The 12 step program they offer has worked wonders in my life, as long as I continue to do the work. You are provided with a tri-fold treatment team: a therapist, a 12 step contact, and a case manager. Each works with you thoroughly to get your needs met. The techs are amazing— almost all of them came through the program themselves and have returned with some recovery under their belts to help others. Guests are brought through the Big Book by experienced teachers and 12 step contacts in long term recovery themselves. I cannot recommend the Plymouth House enough. Oh! And to top it all, the food is absolutely incredible.

The Plymouth House saved my life. It saved my family. After years of bouncing in and out of AA, and thinking I’m just one of those people who will never get it. I was dropped off in the middle of NH by my sister who told me this is your last chance. My husband was going to make me leave our home and our children. He was done with my drinking and lying. The staff at the Plymouth House took my hand and showed me a way to live my life without alcohol. They taught me how to deal with life on life’s terms. I will be forever grateful to the Plymouth House and their amazing staff.

The Plymouth House offers a life changing and once in a lifetime program for anyone struggling with substance abuse disorder. It is, hands down, the most well-run, well-staffed, engaging, supportive and knowledgeable rehabilitation facility in northeast. The staff are incomparable, the food is phenomenal, and the program helps set you up for a life of long-term sobriety and mental health. These people are like family and they care deeply about their clients. There’s no other place I would recommend to a loved one in need. Thank you P.House for helping to save my life!

The Plymouth House is where I learned how to live in recovery. They taught me what that meant, walked me through the first four steps and supported me through every negative and crazy thought. What really stood out was that everyone there had a story to share and truly made you believe if they could do it you could. The staff members connected with you and coached you how to succeed and I believe that’s what makes this place stand out from all the others.

I was truly broken when I got to Plymouth House and had given away everything that was truly dear to me for Alcohol. I was able to start to build a relationship with the director and staff and most importantly with people who suffered from the disease of addiction. Plymouth House showed me they way through this powerful addiction and helped me get to the other side. So grateful for there help, knowledge and direction in moving forward with what has know been over 2 years of sobriety. Highly recommended to anyone who things there is no way out of the disease of addiction.

Really the only place you will need to go to to effectively learn to handle your addiction to alcohol, drugs or other. Dedicated 12-step staff; warm and supporting environment with excellent food and accommodations; a supportive, thorough and thoughtfully sought out program to change your life as it did mine. Continuing resources after inital program treatment tailored to you as an individual. THE place others go after all other attempts have failed.

The Plymouth House Process

The Plymouth House Process is designed with multiple phases to help individuals solidify their recovery. The first phase is our Residential Inpatient Program. During this phase guests work intensively with both a primary therapist and a 12-Step Contact. A 12-Step Contact is essentially a professional sponsor — a practitioner highly experienced in taking individuals through the 12-Steps of recovery. While in Residential Inpatient, guests work the first three steps and have a full daily schedule, seven days a week, packed with group workshops, individual therapy, recreational activities, yoga, meditation and nutritious meals.

After completing our Residential Inpatient Program, guests move on to our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). This phase is much like the first but guests have Sundays free. The subject matter of groups shifts to focus on maintaining sobriety in the world-at-large and healing old wounds that could potentially hinder one’s ongoing sobriety. During this phase clients work steps four through seven. These steps encourage our guests to self reflect, own responsibility, find forgiveness and see their own defects of character.

After completing PHP, our guests graduate from the primary care program. At this point guests have the option to stay in our Extended Care Program, apply to volunteer in our Monitor Program or move on to an outside program of recovery. Our Case Managers help every guest come up with a strategic plan for excelling in sobriety. In both Extended Care and the Monitor Program guests have the opportunity to finish all 12 Steps, continue therapy and slowly reintegrate into the world sober. Individuals gain a sense of personal integrity, self-confidence, higher purpose and inner-peace as they progress through this phase. Joy returns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Guests who come to stay at The Plymouth House need to be physically detoxified from alcohol and drugs before they arrive at our campus. We highly recommend individuals DO NOT try to get sober on their own, but rather detox at a professional medical detox facility where withdrawal symptoms can be monitored. Withdrawal can be dangerous — even life threatening. While The Plymouth House does not offer detox services ourselves, we do have wonderful relationships with detox facilities in the area and are happy to help you get admitted. Then, once you are physically sober from addictive substances, we will help with the transition from into our facility. Once here, you will have access to a doctor and psychiatrist who can prescribe any necessary medication you need to maintain your health and sobriety.
