Edgehill Recovery Retreat Center Philosophy
Edgehill Recovery Center provides individualized, 12-Step based treatment for those struggling with alcohol and drug dependency. Treatment options include 30-day residential programs, addiction education, individual and group counseling, AA and NA meetings, meditation, relapse prevention training, and intensive self-development designed to improve the client’s condition mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Areas of Specialization
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
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.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment at Edgehill Recovery Center addresses all affected areas of an individual’s life — social, mental, physical, and spiritual. The residential program typically lasts for 30 days and is tailored to each client's individual needs, which is determined by initial assessments.
Residents attend daily Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings, along with participating in relapse prevention groups, meditation classes, and educational lectures or workshops.
The weekends are more relaxed. The program emphasizes healthy family systems; therefore, residents can have family visits while they enjoy some down time. Phones and television, while allowed, are restricted to certain times.
The facility provides clients with an aftercare plan, which includes allowing alumni to return to support current clients through the facility’s “open campus” policy.
Information regarding staff credentials is not available online, however, the facility’s website notes all staff members are in recovery from alcohol or drug addiction. It also mentions that community members are invited to speak to the residents about the 12-steps and living a sober life. There is no physician on-site, given that Edgehill Recovery Center provides care in a non-medical setting.

On secondary review sites, the facility also received favorable feedback to date: 4.1 out of five stars based on 15 reviews on Google and 4.7 stars based on 22 reviews on Facebook, which the organization can manage.   Reviewers (alumni, loved ones) referenced the benefits of engaging with staff who had similar substance use experiences and were “kind,” “patient,” “supportive,” and “loving.” Lori Ann, a five-star reviewer on Facebook, wrote: “The staff & volunteers take their clients’ recovery seriously. I highly recommend if you have someone struggling with addiction!”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The five loved ones polled by Rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave mixed reviews. Milton, the father of a former client, reported the facility was “very personal, friendly, and laid back." Offering a four-star rating for the amount of family involvement and five stars for the facility's leadership, Milton added: "My son was happy and enjoyed the time he was in treatment."
However, another loved one provided a neutral three out of five stars for several metrics, including treatment effectiveness, its costs, and for the likelihood they would recommend the facility. "Was not enough to help my friend stay sober," the loved one wrote.
A father of a client reported that their son completed the 30-day program. However, after the facility reported to authorities that the former client stopped attending court-ordered aftercare meetings, he relapsed. The parent blamed the staff for this outcome and the lack of information regarding aftercare requirements.
Edgehill Recovery Center does not provide information online about its fees, other than the facility "provides an affordable environment in which to begin recovery from addiction." Insurance and other third-party payments are not accepted.
