Phase One
Residential Inpatient Program

While The Plymouth House Program is one, comprehensive program, the guest experience is broken up into several parts. The first phase is Residential Inpatient, while the second is called Partial Hospitalization (or PHP for short).

In Residential Inpatient, guests participate in a full daily schedule of group therapy, educational workshops, recreational activities, guided mediation and yoga, 12-Step work, individual therapy and fitness programming. Guests work extensively with both an individual therapist and a 12-Step Contact to work the first three of the 12 Steps. In the second phase — PHP — guests have Sundays off. Monday through Saturday, they participate in a full schedule of groups and activities as they did in Residential, but the subject matter of the programming shifts to focus on how to maintain sobriety and move forward in the 12 Steps. Both phases of care take place at The Plymouth House’s sprawling, homestyle retreat facility, which is nestled in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire.

What to Expect from Residential Inpatient

At The Plymouth House our Residential Inpatient Program is generally between two and four weeks long, depending on the unique needs of each individual guest.

While in residential inpatient treatment, clients begin individual work with a licensed and highly experienced therapist, and participate in a full daily schedule of group therapy sessions and recovery-related group workshops. They also begin working the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous with a mentor known we call their 12 -Step Contact. A 12-Step Contact is essentially a professional sponsor — a  man or woman who has expertise with the 12-Step method of recovery, and who has guided countless others through the 12-Steps. Guests also participate in a range of structured activities daily. The grounds provide ample opportunities for walking, jogging, basketball, horseshoes, and gardening. In addition, the area is rich in hiking opportunities. Hikes are posted and announced on the daily schedule.

More About Our Method

At The Plymouth House our entire program is 12-Step focused. Our staff consists of experienced Twelve-Step practitioners with diverse educational backgrounds and life experiences. Dozens of facilities have adopted The Plymouth House Model, but the depth of our staff experience, our family programming and our aftercare planning make us unique. For more than 15 years we’ve been a pioneer in utilizing the power of The 12 Steps to give addicts, alcoholics and their families hope and healing. During the residential portion of our treatment program, guests work closely with their assigned 12-Step Contact on Steps One, Two and Three.

The first three steps are as follows:

  1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Over the course of their time in residential treatment, guests and their mentors work on admitting powerlessness and becoming willing to go to any length necessary to recover. Guests are also thoroughly introduced to the concept of developing a spiritual connection with a higher power of their own understanding. Because this occasionally serves as a roadblock for some people who are new to sobriety, it is important that significant focus is placed on understanding spirituality. Many of our guests come to us with preconceived notions about AA, mistaking it for a religious program. During this phase of the treatment process we offer several group workshops that focus on spirituality and its role in AA. We educate our guests on the Disease Model of Addiction, and help them work past any prejudgments they might have regarding the program and its efficacy.
