Our Philosophy

Residents in our program explore their academic and professional goals through mindful contemplation of themselves, their strengths, and their current situations. We believe this process starts early in recovery, by uncovering motivations and mastering skills, which lays the foundation for a strong recovery and prosperous life. This approach empowers residents to carefully ground their success in recovery, freeing them to ask, “What’s next?” with newfound hope and confidence.


Whether finishing high school, applying to college for the first time, or continuing a degree, we believe that recovery and academics can go hand-in-hand. We provide each resident with weekly individual academic counseling and twice-weekly skills-groups targeting the essential attributes of success in recovery. As the largest city in the education-rich Triangle area, Raleigh offers diverse educational opportunities that can match nearly every resident’s goals. The Green Hill team caters to each resident’s particular pursuit through informed, supportive guidance, linking residents to the resources and skills necessary for their holistic success.
