Pritts Recovery Center
The Pritts Recovery Center is a community space named for 12- Step pioneer, Don Pritts.
Don Pritts (1934-2005). From 1967 until the end of his life, Don Pritts worked tirelessly to carry the message to alcoholics throughout the United States and beyond. During one five year stretch he spent every weekend traveling the country serving those in need. Don worked extensively with the incarcerated and even brought the 12 Steps to the Soviet Union. His deep interest in Native American spirituality and culture was reflected in his understanding of the 12th Step in terms of the “giveaway”. In Native American culture the giveaway is understood as a means of giving thanks, of bringing people together, of teaching, and of distributing wealth to the benefit of all. It is in this spirit that we dedicate the Pritts Recovery Center. In doing so, we seek to pay homage to the memory of one of AA’s most remarkable and humble servants.
The Pritts Recovery Center is a 9000 square foot space located at the Granite Recovery Centers’ headquarters at 6 Manor Parkway, Salem, NH.The entrance to the Pritts Recovery Center is located on the side of the building, off the lower end of the parking lot.
