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
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.”
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.
12-Step Program of Recovery
I was mentally and physically bankrupt when I received a brochure in jail about the Owl’s Nest Addiction Recovery Program. Because it seemed different than the typical drug/alcohol rehab center, I made a life changing decision to seek recovery. Today I have the ability to have healthy relationships with friends and family, but most importantly: with God.-Lucas B.
I just got a call from my son...... for the first time in his 28 years on this earth he is talking about God and how happy he is. This is stunning to my wife and I. The Owl's Nest is truly changing my sons view of himself and how to be a man on this earth of ours. My heart felt thanks to all of you there. It's just so incredible I want to shout it out!!!! And he got a job. Our decision to send my son to your facility could be... no is... the best thing I have ever done for my son. Thank you all once again....-An email we received from a residents father, October 2012
Today, I have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. I am once again a productive member of society and am dependable and depended upon. I have a purpose in life now, and that purpose is to share with the alcoholic that is still suffering, that which was so freely given to me: hope.-James H. Atlanta, GA

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!
