Substance Abuse in New Hampshire
New Hampshire has been particularly hard hit by the nationwide opioid epidemic. According to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, more than 400 men and women throughout the state lost their lives to opioid overdose in the year 2015 alone. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that opioid-related overdose deaths have remained somewhat stable since then, with 412 fatalities reported in the year 2018. Deaths involving synthetic opioids (specifically fentanyl) have been on the rise throughout the state, with 386 of the total fatalities in 2018 being directly linked to a combination of heroin and synthetic opioids. The opioid epidemic in New Hampshire is partially fueled by the over-prescription of medications like oxycodone and hydrocodone. In the year 2018, New Hampshire prescribers wrote an average of 46.1 painkiller prescriptions per every 100 residents. Rates of alcohol abuse and alcoholism are also particularly high throughout the state. The 2013 New Hampshire Prevention Status Reports indicated that excessive alcohol consumption is responsible for roughly 341 deaths and 8,789 years of potential life lost annually. Eighteen percent of adults in New Hampshire and 23 percent of high school students admitted to binge drinking at least once over the course of the past month.

The Plymouth House Experience
Are we the best rehab in New Hampshire?
How does the Plymouth House measure up? When you arrive at The Plymouth House, you’ll quickly see that we are not a typical treatment facility. There are several components of our program that set us apart from the rest of the treatment centers in the region.
These qualities have quickly garnered us a widespread reputation as one of the best, if not the best rehab in New Hampshire. Nestled in the foothills of The White Mountains, The Plymouth House provides our guests with a safe, serene and comfortable environment to overcome their addiction and recover.
As a guest at The Plymouth House you will:
- Learn about and become part of the recovery community in the state of New Hampshire (and in the remainder of the country).
- Learn about the Twelve Steps as well as the principles and practices developed by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous.
- Move rapidly and confidently into recovery and learn the coping mechanisms and life skills that are necessary to maintaining solid sobriety for years to come.
- Heal on a deep and integrated level, as you learn to restore and maintain physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
- Develop healthy and mutually beneficial relationships with like-minded men and women, as you learn that you are not alone in your struggles or experiences.
- Develop a solid and lasting foundation for years of uncompromised recovery.
Although we are a retreat teaching the Twelve Steps, The Plymouth House is not affiliated with Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous. We simply utilize the program because of its efficacy and because of the positive and lasting impact the program has made in our own lives. We combine the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous with intensive psychotherapy, holistically-based methodologies and a number of other evidence-based modalities.

The Plymouth House Program
One of the main components that sets us apart, making us of the best, if not the best rehab in New Hampshire, is our unique program of Twelve Step immersion. At the Plymouth House, guests are fully immersed in the Twelve Steps, the most well-known and most consistently effective model for the successful treatment of alcoholism and drug addiction. The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous is highly encouraged reading for everyone in our program, regardless of whether or not they are already familiar with the material. In addition to Step Work, our curriculum includes a variety of educational groups and attendance at both on-site and off-site AA and NA meetings. Each of our guests are placed with a Twelve Step Contact who walks them through the first eight steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Twelve Step Contacts are men and women who have been through the steps themselves, who have maintained years (if not decades) of unwavering sobriety, and who have previously taken countless others through the steps. We offer a unique program of Twelve Step immersion that has been adopted by numerous other treatment centers since we first opened our doors in 2002.
