A professional rehabilitation facility can provide the attention and support that an addict needs when trying to overcome an addiction. They can also provide patients with the mental, medical, and physical care that they need in order to become successfully rehabilitated. Without such support, addicts can easily slip back into their old patterns and continue on their downward spiral.
The Riverbank House is the premiere long-term addiction recovery retreat in New Hampshire, offering unique treatment plans to help recovering addicts overcome their addiction and learn the skills needed to lead a rich, happy live after they have recovered. The Riverbank House’s program focuses on helping patients make changes mentally, physically, and spiritually; combining practical, real life training and spiritual education to give patients the tools they need to succeed in the real world.
Challenges with Drug & Alcohol Addiction Recovery
Patients and their families face a number of challenges when trying to overcome and addiction. One of the biggest challenges addicts face the constant influx of temptation and lack of structure in their lives. Rehabilitation is much like a full time job and can require more energy than most addicts are willing to sacrifice given their work schedules or family demands. Rehabilitation centers provide a safe haven where addicts can focus on recovery without the distractions and temptations of everyday life.
Many addicts also suffer from a number of mental and emotional issues, which cause them to rely on substances in the first place. These psychological conditions can wreak havoc on a patient’s recovery process and cause them to try to mask their pain or anxiety with drugs and alcohol. The first step to any successful recovery is allowing addicts to confront their mental and psychological problems and find more constructive ways of dealing with pain.
What Makes Riverbank House Effective?
At Riverbank House, we stress the need to develop a lifelong commitment to recovery. Without dedication to their sobriety, addicts will soon fall into their old patterns of dependence. Riverbank House’s treatment programs are based on the Twelve Steps used in Alcoholics Anonymous, which allows addicts the chance to confront different aspects of their addiction. Our community also places a large focus on adhering to the Twelve Principles of Buddhism, which teach patients how to create harmony within their surroundings. All patients are encouraged to participate in daily yoga and meditation sessions and adopt the community’s adherence to a spirit of non-aggression, collaboration, self-reflection, mutual respect, and accountability.

· Phase I: Foundation
Phase I of our recovery program is aimed at introducing patients to their treatment plan and encouraging them to start off on the right foot. An important part of Phase I is a goal-setting session in which patients write out short-term and long-term goals for the duration of their treatment. Patients also receive ample support by attending group sessions with other patients and participating in the first 3 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous’ Twelve Step Program.
· Phase II: Implementation
Phase II of treatment acts as a continuation of the foundations built in Phase I. Patients are still required to participate in Foundation Phase activities while attending additional Solo No More activities. Patients also take part in a series of career planning classes as well as classes about financial planning and life management. Phase II also begins steps 4-8 of the Twelve Step Program.
· Phase III: Vigilance
Phase III places a heavy emphasis on working with recovery coaches to monitor patients’ self-action and discuss their Relapse Prevention Plan. Patients will also begin work on steps 9-12 of the Twelve Step Program and attend advanced coaching sessions to evaluate their short-term and long-term goals.
· Phase IV: Transitional Living
Phase IV is centered on preparing patients to live a live free of substance abuse after their treatment program is completed. During Phase IV, patients are moved into Independent Living houses where they can implement what they’ve been taught during their stay at the rehabilitation center. Phase IV also stresses continued participation in local 12-step meetings for additional support from other recovering addicts.
