About High Watch Recovery Center
High Watch Recovery Center was established in 1939 as the world’s first 12-Step treatment center. Since then, High Watch has led thousands of clients from the grip of alcohol and drug addiction to the freedom of recovery. They offer inpatient, intervention services, an extended care program, IOP, transitional sober living for women, and aftercare support. For clients who require a more flexible schedule, High Watch additionally offers online Telehealth IOP and AA meetings. Each client in the inpatient program receives an individual bio-psycho-social evaluation to create an customized treatment plan that’s right for their needs. Each client is assigned an experienced 12-Step coach to work with in a one on one setting. High Watch has an Empowering Women in Recovery group designed to help women recognize and honor their strength and resiliency and explore ways to parlay those into their recovery journey. Topics include breaking the chain of low self-esteem, increasing self-care, practicing boundary setting, and addressing the specific challenges women in recovery face. High Watch also has a 50+ group to discuss the unique challenges clients 50 and older face in life and recovery such as relationships with adult children and grandchildren, loss of spouses, retirement, health related issues which are part of the aging process, facing one’s own mortality, and how they view their future. Finally, High Watch has a Relationships in Recovery group designed to provide clients the opportunity to explore how to make and maintain healthy relationships.
