High Watch has a rich chronicle attached to Alcoholics Anonymous. Encouraged by AA co-founder Bill W., High Watch was founded in 1940 as the world’s first 12-Step therapy center. The discussion over the role of Alcoholics Anonymous versus the role of expert treatment can be traced back to the first days of High Watch Farm.
It was at that time, AA’s future was set to settle independently from the business of “therapy” for addicts. The interesting history of High Watch begins with Sister Francis, the woman who gave the farm to Bill W. in 1940. Now, seventy years later, High Watch continues a non-profit dedicated to treating those sustaining from the chronic illness of medication and alcohol addiction. Each resident receives state-of-the-art, customized medical care while learning the models on how to stay calm through the spiritual education and practice of the 12 Step systems of Alcoholics
