Treatment Center Setting
The Greenhouse is a residential rehab that’s dedicated to stopping the pain and destruction caused by alcoholism and drug addiction. In a beautiful, serene, and amenity-filled environment, clients receive unparalleled care that addresses every aspect of the person — body, mind, and spirit — to help them break free from the cycle of substance abuse. By discovering and addressing the core emotional issues underlying the disease and resulting behaviors, individuals are able to begin building a path to a new life.
Areas of Specialization
Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
I had an extremely comfortable stay while dealing with an extremely uncomfortable problem, addiction. The education and care I received far exceeded my expectations. I feel prepared and ready to restart my life in a 12 step program.
This place is amazing. From the therapists, to the food, to the classes, and all the amenities associated with the facility. I was never uncomfortable, always acknowledged, I really felt special here at the Greenhouse.
This was an outstanding experience. I really appreciate the thought and care that goes in to the curriculum. The dual diagnosis approach contributed greatly to both self discovery and understanding my addiction.
My experience was above any expectations I had. I feel like I have regained my life while here and am in the necessary frame of mind to return to my family and job. I would suggest making this step to anyone who is struggling.

Rehabs.com Editorial Review
The Greenhouse is owned by American Addiction Centers (AAC), which operates 12 treatment facilities around the country. From a former luxury day spa, midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, the Greenhouse offers medical detox, residential treatment, and outpatient programs at several intensities, for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse and dual diagnosis.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment begins with a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation. During both residential and outpatient treatment, the center aims to treat the whole person, using 12-step principles and optional 12-step meetings, plus evidence-based methodologies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing (MI) alongside standard individual, group, and family counseling. Also in the core program is a proprietary curriculum called Embracing Change: Recovery for Life, a workbook series that aims to engage and educate clients about addiction and recovery. The center is equipped to treat co-occurring disorders including but not limited to PTSD, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder. Holistic options include expressive arts therapy, challenge therapy, and wellness groups.
The center’s website indicates that residential treatment typically lasts 90 days, and that any client who successfully completes 90 days of inpatient treatment and subsequently relapses is eligible for 30 days of free treatment. Outpatient programming options consist of a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP).
For aftercare, the center provides recovery support groups on common themes of early recovery.
Each client works with a primary therapist and a multidisciplinary treatment team, including physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, licensed psychologists, and social workers. The 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff’s level of training and experience gave it an average rating of 4.15 out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Greenhouse’s 130-bed mansion is a luxurious facility set in a former spa. Amenities include housekeeping, an indoor pool and hot tub, a fitness center, and a spa, offering spa services. All meals are reportedly gourmet, and special attention is paid to diet and nutrition. The 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s cleanliness gave it an average rating of four out of five stars.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Of the 27 alumni reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date, 15 were positive, six mixed, and six negative. The 10 alumni polled on the facility’s performance in a variety of treatment metrics gave it average ratings of 4.1 out of five stars, 3.9 out of five stars, and 3.6 out of five stars respectively for its family program, counseling options, and holistic options.
Among the positive reviewers, there was frequent praise for the staff and the physical facility, and several reviewers even credited The Greenhouse with saving their lives.
There were also numerous recurring criticisms. Among the most common — and most specific — of these was the complaint that every meal consisted of chicken or fish. In addition, several clients described the program’s lectures as unhelpful and repetitive, more than one client said the facility was run down or less pleasant than shown in the official pictures, and several alumni complained of having to wait a week to see a doctor. In addition, some alumni described the center’s staff as rude and uncaring. “Their medical care is subpar,” K.M. wrote in a representative review, and V.T. added: “Their staff are rude, they will loose your belongings, and they do not have good communication skills.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
All four of the reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date were negative; however, there was little repetition between loved ones’ complaints. “From a place that hails family involvment it has been a nighmare for us to be involved,” Deanna wrote, and Kim added: “They don't monitor inappropriate behavior well enough.” In the most serious complaint submitted to Rehabs.com, S.C. wrote: “The counseling was sub-par and they released my daughter despite her telling them she wasn't ready. She died one day later from an overdose.”
The center accepts private insurance as well as self-pay, and offers payment plans. The 13 individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the center’s affordability gave it an average rating of 3.69 out stars.
