The Owl's Nest Philosophy
At the Owl’s Nest, residents are more than just a number. If a resident is still struggling with dependency after their scheduled program is completed, they are encouraged to remain with the Owl’s Nest until they feel comfortable enough to return home. During both The Short-Term Intensive and Long-Term Programs, residents attend group sessions that encourage them to discuss their experiences and how they plan on achieving sobriety through the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. The Owl’s Nest staff provides unique insight and advice during these sessions because the program staff all went through the exact same issues.
Areas of Specialization
Intensive Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation
The Addiction Recovery Program at The Owl’s Nest is an intensive study and application of the only time tested proven method of recovery from addiction: the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as they are outlined in the Big Book of AA. The Short-Term Intensive option at The Owl's Nest offers a more personalized course of implementation; the group sessions contain less people, which allow the staff to effectively present the curriculum in a shorter amount of time.
Bath Salts Treatment
This shows the trend of how popular this drug has become, and the dangers associated with its increased popularity. Rehab centers nationwide have also seen the surge in phone calls to their facilities. Gene Rowell, Executive Director of the Owl’s Nest Recovery Community in Florence, SC, recognizes the urgency in addressing this growing national problem. “Of those whom we have treated at the Owl’s Nest Recovery Community, we know this growing epidemic is treatable. However, because of the extreme harm this drug can cause, once abuse is established, treatment must be immediate, intensive, and thorough.”

This place saved my life. Anyone wanting to get sober should check them out. I would highly recommend them.
The Owl\'s Nest is the place to be if you want to be sober. They teach you a lot about humility and everything about the AA program of action. Prior to going to the Owl's Nest, I was in 6 treatments where after leaving I was using within 24 hours. The Owl's Nest gave me the necessary tools to get and remain sober and living a life full of happiness and true freedom. They are extremely affordable compared to the other places around the country and the attitude and morale of the staff and residents is bar none to any other place. I have recommended this place and will continue to do so.
I have been to so many other places and this is the one that did it. I am originally from Long Island and have made this my home because of the fellowship I found at the Owl\'s Nest. Near 2 years sober and I am grateful to God for the Owl\'s Nest.
Everyone treated me with love and compassion. I felt like i was surrounded by family. It wasn't always easy but it was exactly what I needed to get sober and stay sober. This place focuses on the real solution and how to maintain it!
The living conditions were horrific. The people running this place were actively using. There are not any trained counselors at the facility. There was no medical care, ambulance had to be called for people having seizures often. The clients were required to seek employment in the community shortly after arriving and pay for being there. There was not organized 12-step activity. After months of being there you were occasionally allowed to attend 12-step meetings. This place was almost cult like. Not my first treatment but I believe it will be the last. I relapsed shortly after leaving, at 6 months. I used for approximately 6 weeks. I'll have 5 years in September. One thing that helped keep me sober to start with was the thought of having to go back to a nightmare hole like that!
The Owls Nest program is NOT for everyone. we are NOT a "treatment center" We have a 40 person staff comprised completely of alumni of the program. Our program is designed for men and women on whom "traditional" methods have not worked. The Owls Nest began 12 years ago as the only 501c3 non-profit organization of our kind anywhere in SC. We have grown from a 12-bed mens-only facility to now providing 160 beds for BOTH men and women. Owls Nest must charge the $39 per day fee so we can provide room/board/electric/3 prepared meals daily and transportation to/from work/job interviews. The program services we offer (information and education about the problem of addiction/the solution of recovery/the program of action and the continued program of action)are all offered at NO charge.
the Owls Nest literally saved my life. they accepted me with no money and then provided for me until i was well enough to start paying my own way. the living conditions are what YOU make of them(since residents are required to keep their rooms clean) I needed the straight truth and i got it at the Nest. thank God
