New England’s
Premier Addiction Treatment Program

Since 2002, The Plymouth House has been providing individuals and their families hope for a better life, free from addiction. We are not a treatment center in the traditional sense of the term. We are a 12-Step retreat, nestled in the gorgeous foothills of the White Mountains, where individuals come to disconnect and dive deep into working the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Our 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 fulfilling, joyful, meaningful, love-filled lives. The Steps are a pathway leading to true, lifelong recovery.

In 2021, The Plymouth House joined Guardian Recovery Network, a leader in substance use disorder treatment with two decades of experience providing a full continuum of care for clients and their families throughout the recovery process. By joining Guardian Recovery Network, The Plymouth House was able to combine its expertise as a 12-Step retreat with Guardian’s world-class excellence in medical and clinical care.

Being a part of Guardian Recovery Network has allowed The Plymouth House to expand its medical and clinical staff to include primary care physicians, licensed psychiatrists and experienced psychologists. This has opened the door for individuals wishing to cover the cost of treatment with health insurance. Now The Plymouth House excels in all areas — medical, clinical and the 12-Step recovery process.

About The Plymouth House Program

The Plymouth House has been a pioneer in utilizing the power of the 12 Steps to help individuals change. Many individuals seeking recovery when they land at The Plymouth House may have previously attempted some, or all, of the 12 Steps with little success. This is understandable. Trying to work the steps in the world-at-large while battling an addicted mind and the stressors of daily life can be very difficult.

The Plymouth House gives individuals the time, support and focus they need to complete the work on a new level, with professional guidance. While in our primary care program, guests at The Plymouth House work directly with both a dedicated therapist and 12-Step Contact to rigorously work the first seven of the 12 Steps. If a guest decides to continue in our extended care program, they will complete all 12 Steps.

In addition to working the Steps, Guests at the Plymouth House take part in a wide range of recovery-related activites, including:

The entire Plymouth House Program is geared toward catalyzing real, lasting personal change.

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.

I know alot of people whom have been offered the amazing opportunity to attend this "community". Now, not everyone has succeeded in their own journey after this place-and that honestly shouldn't be expected...-but I've never been more proud than when my younger sister was luckily granted a scholarship from "Operation Hope" worth $10,000 to attend the month. So right now, I'm grateful they even exist for her sake...and for other loved ones
