WELCOME HOME to Riverbank House, a revolutionary option for men seeking real recovery from addiction and self-destruction. Located in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire and situated on the banks of a gentle river just downstream from beautiful Lake Opechee, Riverbank House is not an institutional drug rehab facility. We are an affordable and unique residential community offering the most effective, science-based, spiritually grounded residential recovery program in the Northeast.
At Riverbank House, we’ll help you rekindle the will to live! You’ll make friends to last a lifetime and bank a wealth of new experiences that will outshine old, intrusive memories that can lead to relapse. At Riverbank House you’ll find a quality residential experience within our recovery neighborhood, the long-term recovery support recommended by experts, intensive clinical out-patient services at our River Wellness Center, our science-based SOLO NO MORE activities program, and vital guidance as you rediscover your enthusiasm for a life lived with clarity and purpose. Together, we’ll help you develop the spiritual, emotional, and physical practices essential to a full life of vibrant, sustainable recovery from addiction.
Whether you are new to recovery or re-committing yourself to the journey, Riverbank House offers you safe haven, a place to settle in as you give yourself the gift of time. While Riverbank House does accommodate a small number of 28-day residents, our program is founded upon the long-term, extended care rehabilitation model endorsed by addiction specialists and supported by research findings. Length of stay is the single greatest predictor of success in overcoming addiction to drugs and alcohol.
Our Mission Statement
A quality residential experience, resident collaboration, and a holistic approach to wellness provide members of Riverbank House Extended Care Recovery Community with guidance and structure as together participants establish and develop the essential practices – spiritual, emotional, and physical – necessary for a full life of vibrant, sustainable recovery, free from addiction and self-destruction.
Riverbank House Extended Care Recovery Community recognizes that freedom from addiction and self-destruction requires life-long commitment and vigilance. While our program is founded upon the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, we honor the many-pathways-to-recovery approach endorsed by experts. We stay mindful of our recovery through exploration into the principles of Buddhism; the daily practice of meditation and Yoga; a community code of non-aggression, collaboration, accountability, and mutual respect; self-reflection; and the pursuit of constructive passions.
