Riverbank House Recovery Community for men is located in the little city of Laconia, in the heart of the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Once a vibrant New England mill town in the 1800s, Laconia has matured into a four seasons recreational resort and antique shopping destination. The city boasts four lakes, twenty parks, and four public beaches. Our campus is situated along the banks of the gentle waterway connecting Lake Opechee to Lake Winnisquam, just a few blocks from Laconia’s quaint downtown, the Public Library, Lakes Region General Hospital, churches, groceries, post office, ball fields, cafes, restaurants, and more than two dozen weekly 12-step meetings.
Life in the Neighborhood
Riverbank House is not an institutional rehab facility. It is a neighborhood of stately Victorian era homes and fully integrated spaces – both indoors and out, both therapeutic and recreational — engineered to meet the diverse needs of men throughout the entire continuum of recovery care. Our residences, therapeutic meeting rooms, and recreational spaces are connected and accessible by our well-lit and securely monitored Riverwalk pathway, inviting you to enjoy the river views from our rooftop patio or from our furniture workshop, to meditate in our professional yoga studio or in our Zen garden., to play chess in our Rec Center quiet room or under the pergola in Riverside Park. The campus and its amenities are designed to encourage men to engage in the long-term recovery care universally recommended by experts. By allowing men a wide variety of therapeutic phases and transition options within the safety and stability of a real neighborhood, Riverbank House offers men the place and time to build a fully realized recovery from the exile of addiction.
