Founded in 2002, our program is built to meet a cross-section of behavioral health needs ranging from co-occurring and acute clinical care, to motivational and executive functioning issues. Our core belief is that growth occurs when young men find their way through experience. We teach our residents how to lead an addiction-free life - that means beginning and maintaining relationships, continuing their education by preparing them for the stresses of a rigorous curriculum, developing practical life skills, using technology responsibly, and learning how to have fun in sobriety. We have pioneered this dynamic approach to recovery by creating a balance of independence, structure and community. This program features a fully holistic approach including; weekly individual and group therapy sessions with our licensed therapists, process groups, 12 Step instruction, yoga and meditation, nutrition and cooking classes, art and music, academic tutoring and advising, athletic leagues, wilderness adventures, money management, and alumni support groups. Our model has historically been based in the idyllic urban setting of Portland, Maine. As of 2019, Foundation House incorporated a 120-acre working, therapeutic equine ranch in Bethel, ME. We are now positioned to offer the most fully comprehensive recovery experience industry-wide. As a result, we provide an unparalleled opportunity to sustain the dramatic spiritual paradigm shift that occurs in primary treatment, most notably in wilderness programs.
