Evergreen Recovery Centers- Women's Residential & Outpatient Philosophy

Evergreen Manor provides substance abuse treatment for pregnant and parenting women. Services include long-term residential treatment, intensive outpatient care, addiction education, individual, group and family counseling, life and parenting skills training, smoking cessation, domestic violence support groups, 12-Step meetings, relapse prevention planning, and on-site daycare for clients' children under the age five.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

ABOUT EVERGREEN RECOVERY CENTERS – EVERETT

Evergreen Recovery Centers, founded in 1973 as Evergreen Manor, has multiple locations throughout Washington State. The women’s residential center and outpatient facility, both located in Everett, offers medical detox, a variety of outpatient programs, and residential substance abuse treatment for pregnant and parenting mothers.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Clients start by undergoing a drug or alcohol abuse assessment to determine the best course for treatment. DUI assessments, family and drugs court, and Child Protective Services are also available.

Evergreen’s outpatient program is customized to suit each client’s unique needs. Treatment is comprised of a variety of components, including dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), moral reconation therapy (MRT), family education and counseling, anger management, and 12-step facilitation. Aftercare and relapse prevention are also offered. Evergreen offers treatment at various times throughout the day to accommodate clients’ work schedules.

Residential treatment for women follows a similar model, but incorporates specialized programming such as parenting skills training, family planning, domestic violence support, and basic life skills education. The program, which is six months in duration, allows for children under the age of five to live with their mothers while they receive care. Clients may also begin treatment while pregnant and deliver their babies on-site. An on-site daycare center provides licensed child care as well as early childhood education combined with therapeutic play activities.

Evergreen offers a weekend Family Program aimed at counseling and educating loved ones about substance abuse. There is also a one-day, eight-hour course about alcohol and other drugs for which participants receive a certificate of completion. Additionally, the facility offers a 12-week anger management class for those struggling with frustration along with a year-long treatment program for domestic violence perpetrators.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

According to the facility’s website, medical detox is managed by a clinical team that includes ARNPs, RNs, nurses, chemical dependency counselors, and other addiction specialists. The women’s residential program advertises a 3:1 staff-to-client ratio and a team of clinicians licensed in both chemical dependency and mental health. No detailed information regarding the outpatient program staff is available.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The center’s website states that clients of the residential program can expect to share rooms. The facility is completely smoke and tobacco-free. Additionally, no phone calls are permitted in the first seven days of treatment, and residents are not allowed to leave the facility during the first two months of their stay.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

In general, alumni polled by Rehabs.com gave mixed scores for the center’s staff and program’s effectiveness. Six alumni polled at the time of this writing gave an overall 3-star rating for both treatment and accommodations, with slightly more favor when it came to meals (3.67 stars).

For holistic treatment options and recreational opportunities, scores dipped slightly. This is reflected in some of the commentary collected by Rehabs.com. C.B., who provided a lower than average rating for her experience, wrote: “I was very isolated and unhappy. Not many options for activity, exercise, etc.”

Alum Tiffany also gave low ratings and wrote: “This was a joke. They are horrible, dysfunctional, and uncaring. I would not recommend this treatment facility to anyone.” Other alumni indicated they felt the same.

Despite these shortcomings, several alumni submitted glowing reviews to Rehabs.com. Stefenie gave treatment effectiveness and accommodations four out of five stars and wrote: “The councilors are well educated, have lots of different resources to help you out with ANYTHING, and are so polite!”

An anonymous alum noted that the building was “older” and that there was “not much fresh air opportunity;” however, this alum still gave her treatment five out of five stars and wrote: “The counselors really care and truly listen. You learn all the information you could want to know. The rules are strong but necessary to get healthy.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

Loved ones tended to express similar concerns and praises in their Rehabs.com survey responses. One anonymous respondent noted that “boredom was a huge problem for a lot of people” and suggested that group counseling was “lacking.” This loved one still issued a five-star rating for treatment effectiveness, writing: “Despite all the little gripes the fascility and program worked well.”

Another family member experienced some administrative-related difficulties, including “long wait lists” and the facility’s failure to follow through with legal paperwork. This anonymous reviewer concluded their review by stating: “Other than that they are convenient and relatively easy to get in to.”

FINANCING

Evergreen does not publish its pricing, but notes that Medicaid is accepted and that they help those without insurance. The facility’s website says no one will be turned down for an inability to pay and that “health insurance and private pay can be arranged.”

Allowed to keep newborn with mother. Food was plentiful but a little more variation would be a welcome change. Excellent 1 on 1 counseling. Group therapy sessions lacking. Boredom was a huge problem for a lot of people. No internet and the one pay phone was massively over regulated. No place for exercise except 1/2 a block of sidewalk to walk on. Despite all the little gripes the fascility and program worked well.

The counselors really care and truly listen. You learn all the information you could want to know. The rules are strong but necessary to get healthy. Its an older building. The staff monitors frequently quit. Not much fresh air opportunity. Keeping in mind your in treatment and you can't trust yourself and your decisions which is why they have rules in place. This is the best facility and program I have been blessed and able to attend. They cover everything you could ever want and more. The length of the program helps you relearn how to live and become comfortable again. They don't just boot you out after your done withdrawing. They care and want you to succeed.

Often there are long wait lists. They often lose paperwork required for court and the individual ends up in legal trouble because the facility did not follow through on their paperwork. Other than that they are convenient and relatively easy to get in to.
