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.

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.

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
