    Even though this was my 1st time in addiction therapy, I was welcomed with respect and politeness from the start. I arrived on a Thursday and alot of my dr evals didn’t start until the following Monday. After that the treatment went really well.

    Great facility, staff and food. The negatives include; lack of organizational control, policies and procedures not being consistently followed and being chronically understaffed.At the end of the day, this place did everything I hoped it would. I am clean, educated on addiction and have a plan for my recovery. All thanks to Desert Hope!

    The Greenhouse Treatment Center is all what you make out of it. It is very important to come in with an open mind. Not everyone is there for the same reason as you are. The things you will find at the Greenhouse Treatment Center is a caring, dedicated staff and a wonderful facility

  • william

    My experience was exceptional at Greenhouse. However, one must enter willing to succumb to realization of the truth of their problem; thus willing to actively participate and absorb the teachings and apply them. You can glean all you need from this program if you focus on YOUR problem; avoid any drama that may occur around you. This program is for you, so take all from such that you can. Staff members are caring, knowledgeable, and avail themselves to help YOU.

    The Greenhouse was actually a very interesting and helpful place for me to deal with my alcoholism. I was an alcoholic for twenty-one years. I felt like a failure, messed up my relationships, blew a bunch of money, and I didn’t trust myself. I finally decided to do something for myself. GET HELP. At the Greenhouse, there were a lot of helpful classes in helping me deal my reasons for drinking, how I got here, ways not to relapse, etc. My therapist Clarissa and Sarah were BEASTS. They helped me get to the roots of my thinking, met with me two or three times a week, and yet I still could go to them anytime that I needed. Sarah was even here late nights on weekends. I can’t say enough about those two. My case manager, Bryant Marshall stayed on top of his game (The BEST) and he goes over and beyond the call of duty for his clients. I was really Blessed to have the three on my team. They made the stay that much easier. Mr. Lang, Jeff, Reka, Terrence, Morris, Tony, James, Andrea, Ms. Wilma, Magdalia, Ms. Irma and Tony were very good at assisting their clients as they were loyal to their jobs (Thanks ladies and gents). Jeremy, who is the fitness director was the bomb. He made it his business for us to learn perform proper fitness, play games, go for walks, and teach healthy nutrition classes (Good Man). My favorite nurses were Ms. Michelle and Ms. Ivan (a.m.) we on their jobs to make sure you got your medicine, order your medicine and the proper steps to make sure that you were ok. Sarah and Gus checks and makes sure your blood pressure is taken properly and urine analysis were in. Both are real nice. But don’t get it twisted, they both will come find if needed. My night-time nurses Ms.RoShonda, Big Chris, Ms. Kelsey, Ms. Jackie, and Ms. Nita are an immaculate crew. Well on top their game, they basically could not go wrong. Meds on time, proper meds, spunky and will you smile as well (The BEST)!!!! Mrs. Beverly Ozanne and John Talmadge M.D. are very influential and are very good at telling how the brain work and how to use your cognitive thinking. The rooms and cleaning staff, the food was nutritious (pretty good). Ms. Kelly is a nurse that you really want around all the time. The URRN extraordinaire, is also a registered cardiac nurse. Speak to her one time and you’ll see the joy that she will put in you in second secs. Mark (CEO) is stepping game. Angie V, the nurse practitioner is also nice. The only thing that I really fault them on, is the response to people when their having seizures and not checking on new patients enough when it is obvious that the patient has been on a lot of drugs and/or alcohol. Otherwise, the Greenhouse is a GREAT place for your rehabilitation! Just got to get treatment, not to have fun. The real YOU and YOUR FAMILIES are waiting for the NEW YOU!

    I was very impressed with the facility and staff. Everyone was very nice, they served excellent food as well. I give a shout out to several of the staff-Michelle (nurse YOU ROCK!) Bryant (Case worker) You are the best!) BHT’s) Morris, Lang, Terrence-What am I going to do without you???) Jeremy(Physical Trainer) I wish I could take you home with me! My therapist Clarissa-GOD bless you always – See more at:

    I am very pleased with my experience with the Green House. The staff was wonderful. I cant say enough about my therapist Clarrisa and my case manager Bryant. They were always there for me. If I needed help they were there no matter what it was. I thank them. the staff were all great but I want to thank Lang,Shanon,Medalia,Cody,Meg,Wilma,Jeff and Aday. They were exceptiona! The Rn’s Lpn’s and Dr.’s were also attentive. The cooks and the cleaning staff were great. They took care of us like we were family. What else can I say, I had a great experience here and would not hesitate to send someone here. I also came away with a knowledge that I did not have before! Thanks to the Green House!

    My stay at the Greenhouse was amazing. I voluntarily extended my stay even though I was not planning on staying the entire 30 days in the first place. My therapist was incredible, making my experience that much better. She has opened my eyes to the needs of therapy, and will pursue therapy after I am back home. My parents also learned a great deal during family weekends. I would recommend a few changes to make if Wayne Raiter is not present for the family weekends, as it was not nearly as informative with his absence. Overall I am grateful for my stay here, and would recommend this place highly to anyone in need of treatment.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Greenhouse. I came in very broken and lost and with the help of my therapist, as well as the entire staff here, I have found myself again. Everyone at The Greenhouse is very kind and caring and had my best interest and treatment at heart. I would highly recommend this treatment facility.

    March 28, 2014
    I rated Greenhouse with an above average rating. This is my first time in a rehab environment and had no clue on what to expect. I was here for grieving, depression and a minor in alcohol abuse. I found the quality of my therapist team and case management skills, as well as personal attention to details, top notch. The staff really came through for me helping in many ways as possible to make me feel welcome and comfortable over my 30 day stay. The BHT, house-keeping, and personal trainer were all great. Quality and flavor of meals were excellent. I compliment to the chef and kitchen staff. The amenities were not quite as advertised on the web but with so much construction around the facility, this is understandable. I look forward to keeping in touch and perhaps visiting some day in the future when not in rehab mode.Thanks for all the help.
    Yours, truly,

    The Greenhouse changed my life! During my stay at The Greenhouse, I was able to take time to reflect on the mistakes I had made, while learning the coping skills necessary to face life’s many challenges. I am so excited to face the wonderful opportunities my life has in store. I would like to personally thank my Therapist, Eric, my Case Manager, Bryant, and BHT, Lang for helping make my stay at The Greenhouse, pleasant, educational, and life-changing.

    I had a tough relapse and came back to the program with nothing. Steve at Symeron took me out and bought me clothes and gave me all the things I would need to recover. God Bless Steve, Ivy, Andre, Jenny,and the driver Bobby. They have helped me get to a point where I can overcome.

    I would recommend this facility to anyone serious about getting help and turning their life around. I could have not done it alone. I am serious about staying sober and have learned so much here. The support, and the staff here are amazing. The one thing I will say is that you get out what you put into it!

    The green house has changed my life. The help Ive gotten from Clarissa, Bryant, and all of the awesome bhts is something that I will never forget. They have all been so helpful and comforting every step of the way. James helped me with my loan application and I couldn’t of done it without him. Bryant helped with finding doctors, physiatrists, therapists, and my sober living house. Clarissa has helped me gain the confidence I needed in this crazy world. Im finally able to say im almost the Emily I once was and I thought Id never be able to say that. I cant thank the green house staff enough for the love, patience, and care they have all given me.

    Great facility overall. The food was nutritious & tasted great, easily eating ~2000 calories daily. The hot tub, steam room & sauna were very relaxing. The curriculum was interesting, changing every week & I would definitely recommend family weekend. I learned a lot. Taking a notebook to class everyday was helpful for remembering information.The quality of the therapists & case managers was excellent. Ciara, my therapist, was very helpful, available, and gave practical advice. Mary, my case manager, was extremely helpful with my discharge planning. She allowed me ample time to use the phone/internet to research & work on my after care plan.

    The professors were overall very good, yet I feel some stood out over others. Lang was energetic & respectful. He engaged the class every time, making classes informative & enjoyable. Cody was my favorite teacher. He was good at sharing wisdom from his experience in recovery. Every class he taught I got something that I could remember & actually use practically when I get out of treatment. Jamie was also a great teacher. She gave great advice & was good at tying in course material with her experience in recovery.

    I would also like to acknowledge the housekeeping staff. They worked very hard everyday to keep the facility clean. The rooms got cleaned everyday, laundry was done perfectly, & the common areas were always clean which made for a comfortable environment.

    The greenhouse was not perfect & I believe some policies need to be adjusted. Yet looking at the positive aspects, the greenhouse is definitely a great treatment center that I would highly recommend to those who are looking to start living a sober life free from the addiction of drugs & alcohol.

    My overall treatment has been outstanding in all aspects. My overall treatment has been outstanding. The counselors, therapist and hose managers have aided me eminensly in my recovery. Both Theresa my counselor and Steve my house manager at Symeron have played a key role in my education and recovery. There is no way I could feel so well prepared for my next steps without their time, effort and support.

  • Kristen
    Ok so ive been to alot of treatment facilities across the country and what surprised me was that everytime, everyplace, I counted the days till I could go home & get out !!! But when people asked me how long I was here I couldnt even tell them. Desert hope is amazing. I was so nervous to jump on a plane again to go to treatment because then last time I did that I wound up inn a not so great place. I had read these comments over and over again and wondered why they were all so positive and honestly I thought they were fake lol … Desert hope is a beautiful place with a wonderful staff and I thank God that I ended up here! I reccomend this program to anyone seeking help for addiction.. They will take amazing care of you and help you with anything you need. Kristen, Clara, Wendy Jason Dee Greg and Freddy are so amazing !! Love you guys, Iam so sad to leave will miss you so much thank you for everything!!!! <3

    Also, a holler out to BHT Lang for being so caring also.

    Staff was great! I had a really tough detox and had a hard time getting back to normal but people like Anthony and Byron made my life so much better by taking time out of their personal schedule to help me and the guys. The staff here cares so much and my counselor and therapist brought light to my addiction and sickness and helped me recover. Thank you!

    I was very timid going to treatment for the first time but desert hope staff was very helpful and made me feel safe and comfortable. They also helped me get in another center to continue care for another issue. I didn’t want to leave–staff is caring kind and helpful. Kitchen staff is amazing. Definitely would recommend

    Dr.Jim’s process group is an amazing contribution to peoples recovery. Also the IOP group is an asset to the program and if properly managed will benefit a lot of people’s recovery.

    I have been to multiple treatment centers in my 22 years. Some were good, some were very bad. The Greenhouse has been the most incredibly rewarding experience I have ever had the privilege to be a part of.
    The amenities are out of this world, we are absolutely pampered. More importantly still, the level of care and commitment that I have received from day one has been phenomenal. The staff, therapists such as my own, Eric, and even counselors that were not my own, Lindsey, Jammie, Ciara all took time and care in helping me succeed to my full extent. The floor staff, BHT’s, Jeff, Cody, Morris, Medallia, Shannon, Gloria, Wilma, Malton, Terrance… The list goes on, had the utmost respect, care and understanding for me and my needs. If you are ready to make a change, truly surrender, there is no better place for beginning your journey than The Greenhouse.
    The case management Bryant, to the kitchen staff Liz, to the maintenance people, to the Nurses, Crystal, Kelsey, Brad….. are incredibly devoted to their work and helping the people they work with.
    My number one suggestion for anyone thinking about coming here is to keep an open mind, be respectful and mature, and things will fall in place. God has a plan for all of us and if you don’t fight the process, endless beauty, hope and love can be found here.

    my therapist is an absolutely wonderful woman that I had no hesitation to open up to because of the honesty that she in minutes. I also think that TJ Jeremy, brandy, Jermaine, and Jeff and Oscar are wonderful techs. Especially Jeremy. That guy should be given a raise because of how sweet he is. Hector, George, and Gail are also wonder for people that have truly had an inspirational message behind their words.
  • Lanvil
    This facility is a great place for recovery. I like the positive staff members. I also like the Wellness Center that address is almost any physical problems that one may have. I also like all the therapist and doctors on sight, and would recommend Singer Island Recovery Center to anyone.
  • Staci
    Everyone, behavioral health technicians, speakers, and therapist, have been very welcoming and helpful. All group meetings helped me a lot to figure out my feelings and what caused me to use drugs. We stayed busy with outdoor activities, the beach, bowling, and movies. I like going to different meetings every night such as narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous.
  • Josh
    great place to be at for recovery. The gym, yoga, adjustments, massage, therapy, the community, outside meetings, the things we do like movies, bowling, and activities on holidays, and especially the staff are awesome.

    the entire staff including therapist, case managers, and technicians were extremely helpful and every way. They made this an incredible experience for me and I am very thankful and grateful for their help. I have already spoken to my Employee Assistance man on the railroad and advocated him to send any future clients to Singer Island.
  • Joseph
    really enjoyed the extra activities we got to experience. The time spent with my therapist was the best part of my experience. The facility truly made the holiday time the best I could ask, the staff was beyond excellent. They really knew how to have fun with us and also get serious when need be

    Great staff and facility. It was wonderful to have a comfortable environment and attentive nurses and appropriste medication to effectively detox, which was much shorter and not as painless as anticipated. Following detox I was welcomed by a great group of girls that were friendly and supportive, making it easier to become acclimated. The daily groups helped me learn more about myaaddiction, working through past experiences, identifying triggers, and providing me with the knowledge and tools to live a happy and sober life. There were a few minor things that need to be worked on in this facility such as wait times and being more adimant in turning up girls stplen items. I’m
    going to miss this place and the relation ships I’ve made as well as not having tocook or clean! Its nice to have a clear head again and a solid sense of ddirection. Thanks desert hope. Erika
  • firstthoughtwrong
    My first treatment, so can’t compare to others. I came in already detoxed, so I hit the ground running. I would recommend detoxing prior to arrival so as to make the most of the time spent here. Structured program but not overbearing. Others may prefer more firm staff oversight. Gender separation is enforced. This is important for client recovery IMHO. The addition of a new wing will make this a non-issue in the future. Accommodations are comfortable and amenities are good. Food is very good. Very nutritious. Group sessions are very good (you get out what you put in, bottom line). Some excellent counselors on staff. AN AMAZINGLY TALENTED, WARM AND CARING FAMILY COUNSELOR (Miss Beverly)- HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER! I concentrated on the 12-Step aspect of recovery. Marc D. has a PHENOMENAL Big Book (Alcoholics Anonymous) study group. A great resource!!!! He will touch your soul! A must, especially for those new to AA. Opportunity to attend outside recovery meetings.

    The Greenhouse was my 2nd 30 day treatment center. What I enjoyed was my therapist and working with the mental health aspect of depression and how that is leading to the apathy of not caring if I drink or not. Dr. Talmadge is very interesting and knowledgeable about how the mental side interacts with our addictions.There were many types of people here from needle users to alcoholics. The staff is encouraging and you will get the most by talking to them vs. waiting for them to talk to you.

    I was from the area, so as long as I attended classes and was not written up I was able to leave on the weekend night and see my daughter to return. This was actually very insightful in seeing family and them seeing my progress and noticing how it was affecting my daughter.

    Working out in the gym every morning and doing yoga afterwards most mornings hit home the importance of getting my body healthy and my mind as well as giving the day over to God and positively believing in a hope for the future really is a necessity for life.

    I am grateful for the Greenhouse and how it fell at this certain time in life as exactly what I needed. As it is a treatment center I really feel it is holistic for mind and body as well as addictions. While the weekends tended to be a little bit lighter in the ways of teaching, and the expressive therapy was not as therapeutic as it could have been. Most, not all, of the teachers were able to have us learn something from every session. Again, the moods and dynamics ebb and flow with the patients that enter and leave each week.

    I would rate it as a 5 because I have been to a facility prior to this one and it was nothing compared to Singer Island. Very positive experience for me here.I learn so much here at your facility. The staff and clients were awesome. such a great support system here. thanks to you all for all your help and love!

  • Jacinto
    my rating: speaks for itself. I am glad I came to the facility the place is decent and very organized. Plus the staff and clinical have been a tremendous help in my treatment. I recommend this place for the people that are looking for a rest in profound search for his or her soul. Thanks for everything!
  • Dennis
    the staff is next as far as helpful and obviously caring. I must mention Fernando he is great , Ronda, Nasheen, and Jeremy are also very dedicated. Hector and I hit it off great, he speaks my language (military) and simplified my recovery.

    Best facility that I have ever been to- everyone here genuinely cared and wanted to help me. The food was good, the cooks were very accommodating to my wants. Very very clean facility and also beautiful! I like the fact that you get some freedom also like to be outside and things like that.
  • Erica
    The staff members are excellent and truly care about every client. They are willing to do everything it takes in order to help in any way. The place is absolutely beautiful. Everything about it makes you feel comfortable and accomadated. It is the best facility in the united states.

    Over all I felt very good about the overall treatment I obtained while here. The staff was supportive and helpful and gave great advice as well. I would be lying if I said this didn’t help me tremendously in my recovery. A big thank you is in order for the great people here who are always willing to help.
  • Jersey
    Coming to an inpatient facility my emotions were all over the place naturally, didn’t know what to except. Within 2 days my experience and journey began with excellent staff members to name a few: Jeff, Terrance, Malton, Wilma, Gloria the list could go on and on I can not express the amount of gratitude I have the warm welcome, the much needed advice, the level they cared about each and everyone of us just seemed unreal. They truly were a huge impact on my recovery. I came here not expecting to meet friends but most of the adults who really wanted the help are and will be friends of mine. The case managers Bryant and Lang have made me laugh more than I can count and brought my self esteem and confidence level up before coming here I was down and out and now they have prepared me with all the services I needed when I got home and the level of professionalism made me have no doubts that I was in their best interest. My therapist Clarissa listened and pointed out my flaws, my accomplishments and gave me life coping skills I needed with everyday life. This facility is beautiful sauna, Jacuzzi and 2 pools everything you see online is the real deal no gimmicks. I highly recommend this facility who is really serious about treatment they work you and support you.

    I am 51 years old and have been drinking since I was 12 years old, and been a “non-confessed” alcoholic for at least the last 20 years. My life continued in a downward spiral with most promises made to myself, my wife and my family unkept. Even after being diagnosed with the initial onset of a fatal disease, exacerbated by alcohol, I continued to drink. One day, I had simply had enough and found The Greenhouse. In as simple of terms I can think of, The Greenhouse and the people who make up this facility literally saved my life. The case manager, the therapist, the book studies, the IOP sessions, the constant meetings, etc., have given me the tools to accept I have a disease, it is treatable through simple but rigorous measures, and I can leave The Greenhouse with those tools to carry my life forward into a life of non-drinking, AA groups focused, new person. I am now a recovering alcoholic that my family and more importantly, I, am truly proud of. God Bless all here at The Greenhouse.

    This is my first and last rehab that I have been to and overall I am leaving here a better stronger person and maintaining my sobriety is now up to me. Having a facility that has such a range of backgrounds had its pros and cons but I am taking a little piece of the staff and the clients with me. Even through some of the drama there was a lesson to be learned. Overall my experience was a good one and I hope others can get as much out of this place as I did

    I think that the greenhouse is a outstanding place to get your sobriety. It’s one of the better rehab facility that I’ve been to with a great staff of people who knows how to treat the clients. The case managers are all helpful and understand your needs and responsibilities to cope with your everyday problems dealing with your addiction and sobriety.

    When I first came into this treatment, I was amazed at the cleanliness, and overall look of this treatment center,but that is not the least the best part of coming here, when I came here the amount of kindness, concern , care and respect we get not only from the BHT Staff but the nurses, the house cleaning ladies as well as case managers and therapist’s just amazes me, I was so afraid of coming here because unlike this treatment center, other treatment centers had kicked me out and just gave up on me, because of the severity of my ADHD and Anxiety, here they teach you ways to cope with any dual diagnosis, and medicate you for that as well. The Detox was amazing , and better then any other detox i’ ve received from previous treatment centers. I have learned more about my self and my addiction and how to overcome my addiction far more here then ANY other treatment center ive been to in the past , and this was my 5th treatment center. I Highly recommend this treatment center to anyone who is ready for help!

    Clarissa was so helpful and I would recommend you request her to be your therapist. She was very helpful and easy to talk to about any issue I had here. Wether it be about a counselor or a personal issue.Bryant helped me also and I would recommend you request him also. He listens and helps you with your FMLA and Disability. He made sure that my job was notified ASAP and all paperwork was filled out properly.


    I started using Heroin and OCs and Percs and abused them for 16 years. Then I went to a drug counselor that gave me Suboxone and that is just like putting a band aide over the problem as you will eventually pull it off and start using again.

    Thank you so much for saving my life. I am now ready to get home to my fiance and be the future husband she said yes to. My life was in a fast snowball rolling faster down the hill than I could manage. However, I now see my addiction was causing me to mismanage the important things in life.
    I was extremely bitter and hostile towards yhr program and my fiance for making me come here. However, I have to complement the staff from the maintenance up to the director. I could not have asked for a more supportive, accommodating, and understanding group of people. I will forever be indebted to so many people in here for making me realize my life is not unmanageable and I can live life sober. And I’m finally OK with that. I’m ready to tackle life’s challenges and deal with my various personal situations without being high. For the first time in a decade, I am waking up and not needing a drug to get me out of bed, and that makes me proud. Desert Hope has saved me in so many ways that I can already see. I am a new person with a new understanding of myself and of my life. Sobriety is finally possible and that sounds damn good. I have made many memories over the last decade, but I am now ready to make memories my kids will be proud of. Thank you.
