ABOUT HARBOR RECOVERY CENTER
Founded in 1966, Harbor Recovery Center (formerly Harbor House) in Fort Smith, Ark. is part of Harbor House, Inc. — a two-facility treatment provider that also operates a women’s facility called Gateway Recovery Center.
Harbor Recovery Center provides residential treatment for men struggling with substance abuse in Fort Smith, Ark. The facility also offers outpatient services, a six- to 12-week intensive outpatient program (IOP), and specialized services for those with co-occurring posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or chronic pain. Detox services are not offered on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Harbor Recovery Center begins with a comprehensive evaluation. During testing, staff pay particular attention for signs of PTSD, depression, and anxiety in order to more appropriately address those complexities during treatment.
Harbor Recovery Center integrates 12-step principles, alternative practices, and evidence-based approaches during treatment. This is done using a mixture of hypnotherapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), motivational enhancement therapy (MET), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). The facility has 30, 60, and 90-day residential programs.
In a typical week of residential care, men participate in at least six hours of interactive group counseling, and one or more hours of individual therapy. They also have at least five hours of recovery support groups (e.g. AA, NA, or SMART Recovery).
After the residential program, if needed, clients can make arrangements to live at Cornerstone, the organization’s transitional living facility for men, where they can stay for up to two years.
There is limited information available regarding Harbor Recovery Center’s staff; however, the facility does mention that its all-male staff have each worked at least seven years as substance abuse counselors.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Despite limited information about Harbor Recovery Center’s living arrangements and related offerings, there are some details about Cornerstone, the organization’s transitional living facility. At Cornerstone, there is 24-hour security and video surveillance, as well as a recently renovated kitchen, dining area, and laundry room. Clients live in single, double, and triple occupancy rooms.

All four alumni criticized the facility for its understaffed, limited resources. Alum John reported to Rehabs.com: “It would be much better with more staff members.”
