About Greenhouse Treatment Center
Individuals struggling with addiction who are also working as a licensed professional face a unique set of challenges in recovery. Greenhouse has a designated Licensed Professionals Treatment Program that offers doctors, pharmacists, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, lawyers, and others working a licensed professional role, treatment for substance use and co-occurring disorders.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) uses medications along with therapy to treat substance use disorders, particularly opioid use disorders and alcohol use disorders. MAT may sometimes also be used to simultaneously manage pain.
Individual therapy sessions are typically one hour in duration and held at least weekly with the client’s primary therapist. A variety of different treatment modalities are used, including but not limited to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT).
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is reserved for those who have been in treatment at Greenhouse for some time and who have physician and therapist approval that they are ready for this intensive level of work.
Family Support and Therapy
Our therapists will work with you to facilitate family therapy sessions. Additional family programming is available every first and third Saturday of the month. Families can visit on Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon.
Group therapy sessions are one hour in length and occur 3-4 times a day, 7 days a week. This is in addition to other programmed classes and activities.

Greenhouse is a strong proponent of the field known as pharmacogenetics, which uses the knowledge of an individual’s genetic makeup to inform what medications may be the best choice for them in treatment. Greenhouse utilizes AAC’s Addiction Labs of America to perform genetic tests within 24 hours and integrate the learnings from those tests into individualized treatment plans.
Co-occurring Mental Health Disorders
Clinicians at Greenhouse are equipped to treat patients with co-occurring mental health disorders and may adjust medications or initiate new medications if needed. We have 3 psychiatrists and 2-3 psychiatric nurse practitioners on staff at all times, with groups providing integrative therapy on a daily basis.
Chronic Medical Conditions & Physical Challenges
Greenhouse is equipped to care for medically compromised patients and patients with significant physical health needs. We receive patients that were previously in the hospital and now are coming to Greenhouse to get treatment for their substance use disorder along with their medical condition.
Greenhouse was recognized in 2014 as a HRC Leader in LGBT Healthcare.
Staff at Greenhouse Treatment Center
Many staff members are in recovery, so they understand first-hand what it’s like to battle addiction and thrive in recovery. This gives the staff a level of compassion and empathy that is evident throughout the treatment process. A high staff-to-patient ratio helps optimize individualized patient care.
We also have 2 Spanish-speaking staff members to assist Spanish-speaking patients. Sign language and other languages are accommodated via translation service.
Greenhouse is a leader in treatment for patients in the LGBTQ community. We offer programming that is not just sensitive to and considerate of these identities but that specializes in the specific set of challenges members of that community may face.

What to Expect at Greenhouse Treatment Center
Prospective PatientsEach treatment environment is going to be a little different—but Greenhouse's setting of a former Nieman Marcus Spa makes it something truly unique and outstanding. Coming to residential treatment, especially from out of state, is just the first of many great risks that our patients undertake on their journey to recovery. This is why prospective patients and their families are welcome to tour the facility ahead of time and see for themselves Greenhouse's luxurious accommodations. Depending on the time, prospective patients and their loved ones may meet the staff they will likely work with if they choose Greenhouse to get acquainted and ask questions. Tours are conducted in groups and individually, and they are conducted primarily by designated members of leadership. We do tours 7 days a week if needed, and we are flexible in terms of notification. Tours last on average about an hour.
ArrivalOur admissions process is quick and easy and usually takes an hour or less to complete. Once you arrive at the airport, one of our behavioral health technicians in our in-house transportation department will meet you and help you every step of the way.
MealsDelicious, healthy meals at Greenhouse are prepared by an executive chef who was previously the chef of the Neiman Marcus spa. Three meals a day are served buffet-style in the dining room at set times, but there is also a 24-hour juice bar where patients can get coffee, juice, milk, fruit, and other healthy snacks at any time of day. Accommodations are made for special diets if needed. Patients can meet with a registered dietitian on-site and have a custom meal plan developed.
Housing DetailsMen and women reside on separate floors, and rooms for patients in detox are located separately from the rooms for patients in the residential treatment program. Most rooms house two patients, although there are a few single rooms. There is a laundry service, so patients do not have to wash their own clothes.
Luxury OverviewIn their free time, patients can exercise in the fitness center, swim in the heated indoor or outdoor pool, relax in the hot tub, watch television in the lounge, get a massage or other spa services, experience acupuncture, unwind in the dry or wet sauna, walk in the 12-step garden, or just enjoy the soothing scenery around the facility. Patients can also participate in yoga, Pilates, Zumba, tai chi, physical fitness, or meditation groups. On evenings and weekends, special activities and outings are planned that patients can participate in if they are interested. Events may include a cookout, a trip to a lake, or a sporting event. These types of fun activities help build a supportive community for patients and help replace substance use and abuse in their life. All of these activities are included in the program, except for massages and acupuncture, which come at an additional cost.
TechnologyBecause connectivity is so important, patients may bring and use their electronic devices at Greenhouse Treatment Center during free hours. We provide free Wi-Fi to all patients and guests.
Greenhouse recognizes that addiction affects not only the individual with the illness but their loved ones as well, and that having a strong support system is an integral part of recovery. To start healing those family relationships damaged by addiction, Greenhouse offers a family program on the first and third Saturday of every month and strongly encourages patients’ family members to participate.
Visiting Your Loved One
Family members can visit patients on Sundays between 10 a.m. and noon, but the family members must complete Greenhouse’s family program first. The family program is offered on the first and third Saturday of every month. Once family members complete the program once, they can visit patients on Sundays without attending the program again. This policy is to promote positive family interactions and make sure that family members are not a trigger or negative influence for the patient, as well as to provide the family with education about addiction. Family visitations are supervised but unstructured.
During your loved one’s treatment, we can work with you to plan a visit. Your loved one’s treatment team will provide you with all of the information you need to schedule your visit.
