The Plymouth House has built a legacy in the New England recovery community for helping individuals work the 12 Steps of recovery, participate in healing personal therapy, and begin to transform their lives. We have an alumni network of more than 20,000 individuals, many of whom have double-digit years of sobriety and regularly return to The Plymouth House campus to help others. They are a testament to the effectiveness of our program in treating addiction long-term.
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. Working the Steps in a beautiful, focused environment, surrounded by a supportive community and experienced staff, makes the process even more powerful.
In 2021, The Plymouth House joined Guardian Recovery Network, a leader in substance use disorder treatment with two decades of experience applying evidence-based clinical and medical therapies to treat addiction. 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.
This two-pronged approach has shown to be highly successful in treating a wide range of drug and alcohol addictions. While addictions can appear outwardly different based on the substance an individual is using, addictions largely stem from the same condition. While this condition is difficult to understand, scientists, medical professionals and individuals in recovery have developed some similar definitions.
