Before American Addiction Centers founder Michael Cartwright turned The Greenhouse into a chic rehab, it was a high-end spa fully-loaded with five-star amenities. Built by Stanley Marcus, the owner of Neiman Marcus, in 1965, the former getaway spot has managed to maintain its attractive and luxurious environment.
Accommodations and Food
After a $6.2 million renovation, the former spa is now a 130-bed treatment facility for substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Clients share a giant bedroom and bath with one other person and each room comes with two queen-sized beds, views of the property and a daily maid service.
With an indoor and outdoor pool, a state-of-the-art gym, a Hokkaido tub, saunas and a whirlpool, clients are invited to relax during the early stages of their recovery. Clients also have the option of walking around the large property and admiring the gigantic fountains and lush greenery.
Meals are served three times a day and prepared by a professional chef. A typical dish may include a selection of roasted veggies, chicken breast, salad and lamb chops. Special needs and dietary requirements can be accommodated on a case-by-case basis.
Treatment and Staff
A medically-supervised detox, if needed, is included in the cost of treatment. Once a client is stabilized, they begin a schedule of evidence-based therapies such as CBT, DBT, Rational Emotive Therapy (RET) and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Group therapy topics include life skills, meditation, boundaries, reflection, trauma, art recovery and relapse prevention. Residents can meet with their primary therapist twice a week for individual therapy. While 12-step work is not required, on-site meetings and classes with a 12-step focus are offered several times a week.
The staff is comprised of a mix of nurses, medical doctors, a psychiatrist, social workers and licensed counselors.
Family involvement is seen as a crucial component of treatment. A three-day intensive family program takes family members through group and individual therapy sessions, giving them time to work on communication and healthy dynamics.
In addition to the on-site amenities, perks such as spa services, personal training and yoga classes are also available (for an additional fee). The Greenhouse also offers a free month of treatment for those who relapse after completing the 90-day program.
While priced at mid-range, The Greenhouse offers much of the amenities and plush environment of a luxury treatment facility. Its focus on evidence-based modalities, and well as the more traditional 12-step and alternative treatments, makes The Greenhouse a well-rounded program likely to meet the needs of a diverse demographic of clients.
