Introduction and Basic Services

Located 50 miles west of Portland, Maine in Effingham, New Hampshire, Green Mountain Treatment Center is an upscale residential treatment facility for adult men and women that struggle with substance abuse or a dual diagnosis. Situated on a beautiful 72 acre campus with views of the White Mountains, clients enjoy a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Green Mountain offers a 12-step centered program that synchronizes holistic methods and classic modalities.

Facility and Meals

Clients in the Green Mountain treatment program stay in luxury accommodations. The residential facility is equipped with 75 beds. The double-occupancy bedrooms are roomy with two full-sized beds and a shared private bathroom. While the program treats both men and women, the sleeping quarters are separated across the campus. The men’s wing is situated within the main treatment facility along with the cafeteria and a large common room for music and socializing. While the exterior aesthetic is rustic, both the men and women’s dorms are equipped with roomy common areas with TVs.

All meals are prepared by the on-site chef and culinary team, and the menus designed by a dietician to maximize nutrition. Dining is cafeteria-style, with a salad bar, coffee and dessert options. If necessary, food restrictions and preferences can be accommodated.

Treatment Protocol and Team

The main focus of treatment at Green Mountain is to internalize the 12-step lifestyle. To this end, treatment provides a vast array of methods within that framework, including individual and group therapy, experiential, CBT, DBT and EMDR to to alleviate past trauma as it contributes to addiction.

If needed, the facility provides medical detox, which typically takes between five and seven days. For residential treatment, the length of stay is typically between 30 and 90 days, but varies depending on the specific needs of the client. During the residential stage, male and female clients at Green Mountain do not socialize or interact. While much of the curriculum is similar, the treatment programs are gender-specific and separate. Clients attend several group sessions daily as well as take time to meditate, perform chores and study the Big Book of AA. For clients with co-occurring disorders, Green Mountain has a consulting psychiatrist on staff as well as medication management services.

There are approximately 100 staff at Green Mountain including physicians, nurse practitioners, RNs, LCSWs, CADCs, 12-step counselors and nutrition experts.

For aftercare, Green Mountain offers long-term treatment for up to nine months. Beyond that, the facility refers clients to outpatient and sober living facilities that support what the call a “recovery-oriented system of care” (ROSC).

Bonus Amenities

Physical fitness is a key component to the Green Mountain program, and there are plenty of options for clients for exercise. Clients have access to cardio equipment as well as free weights and yoga mats. In addition, the facility provides holistic methods for clients like writing therapy, garden therapy and health and wellness classes. Residents also participate in spiritual development classes several days a week and can have visitors on Sunday.


The care at Green Mountain is structured so that clients are kept busy with therapy, education and wellness activities. In addition, Green Mountain accepts most insurances. For men and women looking for an affordable, upscale 12-step centered treatment program situated in a beautiful place, Green Mountain is worth considering.
