About Treatment Center

Situated in Kent, Connecticut, High Watch Recovery Center has treatment options for those who are seeking help for drug and alcohol addiction.

Addiction is a progressive disease of the mind that will continue to get worse with time if it goes untreated. It will continue to worsen without the help of a recovery program. It’s important that those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol seek the help of High Watch Recovery Center in order to regain the life that has become lost to addiction.

Through a thorough patient evaluation, addicts who attend treatment at High Watch Recovery Center can get a personalized treatment plan made. The assessment is intended to depict the severity of the addiction as well as to learn more about the individual themselves. This way, a comprehensive treatment program can be put in place in order to reap the desired result; that being long-lasting abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

Throughout the patient’s time in treatment at High Watch Recovery Center, the addict will learn new vital coping mechanisms and trigger management skills. These will help the addict adapt to a new life that is free of substance abuse when they reenter society.

I was in and out of rehabs for years, but it was at High Watch Recovery Center, that I was able to stay sober for over 14 years now! The facility is like a Bed and Breakfast. Very comfortable, and the food is delicious! The staff gave me the love, empathy, and education I needed to live a happy, sober life.

I have worked in other addiction treatment settings and can say without hesitation that High Watch Recovery Center is the most compassionate and caring environment in which I’ve worked. The guests are viewed and treated with the respect, dignity, and compassion they deserve. Many of the staff members are in recovery themselves and understand the challenges and fears associated with facing addiction head on. High Watch is closely associated with the AA founders and has a rich history. Here the 12 Steps and AA principles are seamlessly incorporated into the treatment program. Guests receive therapists, 12 Step Coaches, a psychiatric professional to monitor medications, a team of medical professionals to meet guests’ physical needs, and a staff dedicated to their well-being. Guests may also participated in yoga or equine therapy, and a ropes course was added over the winter. Other enrichment projects are also in development, and it is an exciting time to be a part of the High Watch community. I’m proud to work for such an amazing company.

High Watch Recovery Center is the best of the best. The knowledgeable staff, attention to detail and never ending care for the guests is what makes them the best at what they do. It is the place you have been looking for to start on the journey of recovery that will last a lifetime if you use what they teach you.

A little over 8 years ago I was a broken man, literally dying. High Watch and its amazing staff taught me how to live a life without alcohol and drugs and gave me all the tools to become the person I am today. Sober for over 8 years straight!

I had spent my entire life feeling like I needed to perform in front of people in order to gain acceptance, to the point where I lost who I fundamentally was without all the masks I chose to wear throughout each day. High Watch provided a safe, loving environment where I was finally able to be the person my higher power intended me to be. I was given the skills to practice accepting myself without adding a substance, whether that was alcohol, drugs, food or a relationship. High Watch also gave me a full education on the twelve steps of Alcoholics Anonymous so that once I discharged, I felt comfortable going to meetings and being a part of the AA community. In addition to this, my underlying mental health issues were simultaneously addressed which I now know was imparitive for long term recovery. My depression fueled my drinking and my drinking fueled my depression. The therapists and psychiatrists cultivated the healing environment that was vital to realizing the connection between my mental health and addiction. One of the best things about High Watch is the fact that most of the staff is in recovery and they’re very open about their own stories. It gave me hope to see that it was indeed possible to recover and thrive. As a 20-something year old woman, I had a pattern of rebelling against authority figures so it was crucial to know that there was no hierarchy between guests and staff. I have been to five treatment centers and I would without a doubt return to High Watch if I found myself struggling with substance abuse and/or mental health issues again.

A lifesaver, but only if you let it be. When I went to HW after probably 25 years of alcohol struggles, two things were in my mind. 1: I would never be able to beat alcoholism, and 2: I would be willing to completely let go of my control and open myself to the program and willing to let my higher power take over. After a few days I was a different person. I had realistic hope and confidence was building. My initial couple of days were dominated with visits to the fine medical staff to ensure I was healthy and able to move forward. The nursing station and MD appointments are a constant with good cause. These addictions are deadly. I need to add that many of the "guests" with me had been in numerous like facilities in the past. Obviously with negative or temporary results. That would have also been me had I not surrendered to the fact that I could never win the fight alone and let myself follow what has worked so many times for countless others. The program offered did not allow for itself failing me, but I could fail it if I allowed myself buy not following it. I had constant professional support and guidance. I saw my therapist at least twice a week and he (Steve) cut right through the BS and was the most helpful therapist I've ever seen. Every aspect of the services offered were top notch. But they had to be taken and taken seriously. Many "classes" were optional that you could pass on in lieu of another or reading, sleeping, field trips or going to the gym. The men in my dorm still talk or chat daily thru group chats or calls. We will forever have a bond in that we all survived what surely was destined to kill us. I'd always been skeptical about these facilities as I've looked at the failure rate as being too high. I no longer feel that way. At least with High Watch, we were given a structure that supports a sober life and all the tools we need to carry that gift forward. I could only liken the food to being on a high end cruise. The food was amazing with numerous options. I heard the average 30 day weight gain was in the area of 20 lbs.

I was a guest at High Watch in early 2017, it was by far the most transformative experience of my life. The staff, the food, the rooms, everything was top notch. I would recommend High Watch to anyone who is serious about getting sober.

Daniel Barrett, 6 months ago

I was a guest at high watch 6 months ago--it was exactly what i needed to start my journey in to recovery. My therapist was amazing and the focus on AA has helped me stay sober all this time. Everything from the rooms, the food, the groups, the AA meetings, the amazing friendly staff who all really seem to understand addiction if they arent in recovery themselves though most seem to be. Thank you so much to high watch for showing me a life i didnt think was possible.
