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. The food is amazing and the open Saturday night dinners are famous within the CT AA community so even after I left, I could come back to the place that provided my recovery foundation. Having a full fitness center helps to incorporate a healthy lifestyle that can easily be translated back into societal living. The Litchfield Hills are the ideal settling for stabilization and High Watch truly celebrates the beautiful land, tight-knit culture and rich history. I had no clue what my higher power was going in to treatment here, but looking out my window each morning and seeing the sun peeking around the corners of each ever-changing tree taught me that there was something bigger out there than me, than my disease.
Used to be better. Meditation assisted treatment, quick admission procedures. CEO focused on bottom line, fast changing rules, pushing iop on everyone.
An ideal place to begin my recovery. Regardless, I had to want to get sober, and today I have to want to STAY sober.
