Fellowship Hall Greensboro North Carolina

Located in a serene and tranquil setting in Greensboro, North Carolina, Fellowship Hall is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment center based on the 12-Step model of recovery. Compassionate, cost-effective care is coupled with individualized treatment plans to give each client the opportunity to create a program of recovery that’s sustainable and fulfilling. The facility offers a wide range of services, including inpatient detoxification and rehabilitation, residential treatment, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, family programming, extended treatment and transitional living.


Located on 120 acres of land northeast of Greensboro, N.C., Fellowship Hall is a private, not-for-profit treatment center for individuals struggling with addiction to drugs and alcohol. The center provides detox, residential, and outpatient services, and on-campus sober-living facilities. The facility can accommodate and treat individuals struggling with co-occurring depression and anxiety, but will help to find a more appropriate facility for individuals whose psychiatric disorders are likely to interfere with their ability to complete a Fellowship Hall rehab program.


Treatment at Fellowship Hall is based on the 12-Steps, and aims for abstinence, according to the facility’s website.

Upon admission, new clients are assessed by the medical team, to establish individual needs. Detox typically lasts between one and five days, and is an integrated initial step in longer-term treatment.

Residential treatment is gender-separate and typically lasts three to four weeks. The program includes individual counseling sessions at least twice a week, group therapy, psycho-educational lectures, and sessions on building the necessary skills for long-term recovery. Additional, holistic offerings include recreational therapy and yoga classes. Therapeutic practices are trauma-informed, including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and a grief group is available. Families are encouraged to attend a four-day family program.

Additional dedicated treatment tracks are offered for licensed professionals as well as young adults.

Clients needing longer-term care can participate in the rehab center’s extended-treatment program for up to ten additional weeks. Outpatient options include an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that meets for nine hours a week in the daytime or evening.


Fellowship Hall treatment staff members includes board-certified psychiatrists, nurses, licensed clinical social workers, and addiction counselors. The medical director is board certified in psychiatry and addiction medicine, and Duke University psychiatric residents also contribute on treatment teams. According to information provided to Best-rehabs.com by the facility, Fellowship Hall maintains a 2:1 staff-to-client ratio.


Fellowship Hall is a 96-bed facility, with 24 of those beds in a newly constructed lodge specifically for women. The main building is a traditional Southern-style mansion, by a lake, woodlands, and 12 manicured gardens, each corresponding to a step in recovery. The center also has a basketball court and a fitness room.


At the time of this writing, 21 former clients had provided overwhelmingly positive feedback for Fellowship Hall to Best-rehabs.com. Just three indicated that treatment was not at all or moderately effective. Although five alumni reported relapsing briefly within a year of treatment, the average rating for treatment effectiveness from 18 individuals polled was 4.3 out of five stars.

Data collected by Best-rehabs.com from 15 alumni polled extensively on treatment and accommodations reflected strong respect for the staff’s level of training and experience (with a 4.4-star rating), and common perceptions of a program limited in therapeutic flexibility. Alumni awarded 3.5 stars for holistic offerings but just 2.3 stars from the six asked to rate available options in counseling approaches.

Alumni repeatedly described the staff as kind and caring, and were comforted that several staff members were in recovery themselves. The main source of contention was the facility’s reliance on 12-step programming: while some alumni pinpointed the program as the source of their sobriety, others felt restricted by the lack of alternatives: “Only had 12-step programs that do not work for everyone and it was very old fashioned,” B.S.M. wrote in a representative review.

More than twice as many reviewers specifically indicated that their experience was worth the cost despite its expense, compared with those who indicated that it was not worth it. “It was alot of money […] but I did learn alot,” one wrote. Another emphasized the value of the extended care program, but reported ongoing issues with billing.

Some also praised the physical facility, in particular the meditation and walking trails. Ratings for meals, nutrition, and the facility’s cleanliness and upkeep averaged 4.4 stars each, from 15 contributors. Opportunities for exercise and leisure fared just slightly less favorably, with 3.9 stars. One alum described Fellowship Hall as “secluded” and “peaceful,” while another wrote that it “appears as a retirement home might.”


Of 17 reviews from loved ones, 71 percent were positive, about one-quarter were critical, and one was mixed. An average rating of 4.4 stars for treatment effectiveness did not reflect the critical perspectives of three loved ones who declined to provide ratings.

Five reviewers explicitly cited the cost of treatment as a weakness. In a representative review, one parent wrote that the cost of treatment “was pretty high but January will be two years she has been clean so I guess it was worth it.” Numerous reviewers also praised the center for the way it involved families in treatment, rating family participation 4.7 stars, based on 10 reviews. The same poll respondents agreed with alumni that holistic offerings were less impressive (3.4-star average), but the facility was clean (4.8 stars).


Treatment costs $18,000 per month and $34,500 for 90 days, according to information provided to Best-rehabs.com by Fellowship Hall staff. The facility accepts private insurance on an out-of-network basis, and has a relationship with third-party medical loans company My Treatment Lender.

Fellowship Hall Reviews

really doesn't deserve all the positive reviews. It's a typical rehab. They involved people in my treatment i didn't want involved. Kind of made me resent the place. Still sober. I get the feeling that a big part of that is just that I actually wanted to quit and got some time away. There were two medical emergencies while i was there. The administration treated me like I should be thrilled to be there. Like I could be replaced at any time. I feel like they were kind of out of touch and always trying to sell me on something. It's like "no... I am in treatment right now. Don't want more treatment." Just pushy and created more problems than they solved. Really regret my decision to come here. I don't regret going to rehab. I regret going to this rehab. That being said, the staff in the kitchen and the people not involved in direct treatment were respectful and kind. Fellow patients were kind and helpful. I feel like the community was way more impactful then the treatment. Medical staff was helpful as well. The place was kind of nice. Didn't respect boundaries or privacy in my personal life. A little angry about it.
Having arrived at Fellowship Hall not knowing what to expect, I was warmly greeted by compassionate, caring staff , many of whom are in recovery themselves. The program works for those who truly commit to living clean and sober and work the program. If you put in the work assigned by the counselors, an amazing thing begins to happen, true recovery. I will always be thankful for the gift I received at Fellowship Hall, a life of sobriety filled with joy and hope.
We have private insurance, but this facility refused to work with us without $15-18K upfront. This is not what their website implies at all.
The only reason I don't give five stars for treatment effectiveness and facilities is because we all have and will continue to have room for growth. Having said that, I can honestly say that it is my belief that Fellowship Hall saved my life. I had no idea what I was walking into when I arrived. But the intake specialist and counselor on duty (who actually ended up being my primary counselor) made me feel as calm and welcome as possible, considering my very high state of anxiety. The first few nights, when I sat up shaking and sobbing from withdrawal and fear, would have been unbearable if it wasn't for the nurses, who literally held and rubbed my hands and talked to and calmed me for what seemed like hours. It seems everyone who works here is in recovery which is inspiring! I never once felt unsafe or disregarded. Their classes and small therapy groups combined with personal counseling helped me tremendously. These therapies are the star of the program! You will get out what you put in. No, it's not always "fair," and not EVERYONE will be nice to you all the time. But that's life. They will not enable you, and I personally needed that bit of tough love. Great discharge programs. Delicious hot food and wonderful salad bar! Clean facilities. The women's lodge is amazing. Come open minded and you will leave with a fully loaded tool box. Forever grateful to FH.
My father came to fellowship hall many years ago, probably has been almost 40 years ago. However, our family remains forever indebted to Fellowship Hall. He learned to cope with his issues without alcohol or any substance abuse. When he passed away in 2004, My father had been sober for 25 years. He gave his life to help the next alcoholic. He spent almost everyday in a meeting somewhere. I thank God for Fellowship Hall. When he came there He was "D.R." When he left he was my father, Charles McGuffin. I'm glad to see you still exist and have expanded. Keep doing what you're doing.
