Admissions Info

Nestled in two hundred wooded acres in the lush Litchfield Hills, High Watch offers residents a special place to recover. Our accommodations are closer to a comfortable bed and breakfast than a medical institution. From the home cooked meals down to the well appointed rooms, we offer hope and solace. Our residents often remark about the natural beauty, tranquility and spiritual energy of our environment as giving them the peace of mind needed to believe in something greater than themselves.

Admission Criteria

Our residents must be 18 or older. Our pre-admission process includes a health screening, review of current medications and a full history of substance abuse history including current usage patterns. Registration for admission typically begins over the phone. If it is more convenient, you may begin the process with our online pre-registration and one of our Admissions counselors will call you.

We Admit Daily

We admit daily from 8:00 – 5:00 pm. Residents must have someone drive them to High Watch. Transportation to High Watch Recovery Center from a Medical Facility can be arranged in advance through High Watch. View our directions.

Admission

Upon admission, our medical staff meets with the incoming resident to identify any medical issues of an emergency nature that need attention. All residents receive a complete physical and psychiatric evaluation for potential disorders including a review of family, interpersonal dynamics and current environmental stressors. An individualized treatment plan is created to address both the neurobiology of the addiction along with any co-occurring disorders.

An individual therapist is assigned to each resident for individual bi-weekly counseling to help provide them with the tools and foundation to live sober after leaving High Watch. In addition they will meet with their therapist in a group format.

What to Bring

To participate in our programs, residents agree to abide by our simple rules; most are outlined in our What to Bring guidelines.

“I truly enjoyed my stay at High Watch and given that this is rehab and not a vacation- that says a lot. I was lost when I got here and now I feel confident that I have what I need to continue my recovery.”
