Why us?

We’re not just another rehab center

There are many clinics in the US and Canada that treat alcohol and drug abuse with standard medical detox procedures and traditional psychotherapy, but the GreeneStone Residential Addiction Treatment Center is a breed apart and is the only clinic of its kind in Canada. Set along the shore of Lake Muskoka in tranquil Bala, Ontario the GreeneStone facility provides contemporary holistic treatment for addictive disorders and mental health concerns.

roomThe staff at GreeneStone understands that its residents are human… with human needs, frailties, and very human problems. So residents here are treated with compassion, dignity, and respect and have a lot more privileges than they would normally have at a typical rehab facility.

Our residents are special

Most have been highly successful in their careers, and are used to the kind of creature comforts we provide in our private or semi-private rooms and suites. We’ve had lawyers and doctors, corporate CEO’s, entertainers, politicians, professional athletes, policemen, firemen, and even commercial airline pilots stay with us. So you’ll be in good company, whether you’re in a group session or just enjoying the companionship of other residents over a healthy meal.

But no matter what residents do in “real life”, they all have one very important thing in common. They are all commited to getting well, to breaking free from the stranglehold alcohol or drug abuse has placed on their lives, and are willing to do whatever it takes to get free and stay that way.

You are invited

To find out if you qualify for GreeneStone treatment, give us a call and we can discuss your goals and objectives. And if you’d like to look us over firsthand, we’d be pleased to arrange a tour of our facility for you (schedule permitting). And of course feel free to bring your spouse or family if you wish.

What makes us different

  • Our facility is unique

    Professional people like you who want to get well in a private treatment facility with amenities. With 43 acres of woods, trails, and Lake Muskoka shoreline the serene and tranquil environment GreeneStone provides is the perfect, safe, and secluded place to heal and recover from alcohol or substance abuse. We also have many recreational facilities including an indoor and outdoor pool, fishing and kayaking on the lake, Yoga and workout rooms, a sauna and massage room, tennis and shuffle board courts, and even fly fishing and access to a golf course.

  • We put you first

    As a “Resident-Centric” addiction recovery center, we work hard to understand your needs. Of course structure is very important in any alcohol or drug treatment plan, but we also want to prepare you to re-enter everyday life. As long as you can stay within our rules and behavior guidelines, we can treat you like the adult you are, and even reward you with extra privileges.

  • We care

    Our clinical staff is not only certified and licensed, they all have decades of experience treating victims of alcohol and drug abuse and are expert at uncovering the root causes of addictive behavior and co-occuring conditions. Our amenities staff is as fine as any 5 star hotel could wish for. And our chef… well, you’ll just have to taste one of his international dishes or scrumptious deserts for yourself.

History of Greenestone...

Greenestone Clinic was founded in 2011 by Shawn Leon and Eileen Greene.  Together with a group of dedicated staff, the team identified  a need for a different type of addiction and related mental health treatment in Canada.   With the growing awareness by most adults that addiction can and should be treated, the team set out to establish a facility where the most modern and effective treatment modalities delivered by the best professionals available could be delivered in a comfortable, respectful and dignified manner.  The company has grown slowly and established a method of treatment that has been very effective and garners extremely positive feedback from clients.  The founders are dedicated to continued growth and development in the field and addiction and mental health treatment and hope to expand in both Canada and the United States.

What we do

Our goal is to set you free from the addictive behavior that’s now controlling your life. The unique, personalized treatment plans we create for every resident are designed to meet your individual needs and goals. Our treatment combines a medically supervised detox program with proven Holistic Therapy, but we don’t just treat the symptoms of your “dis-ease”. We blend individual, group, and recreational therapy in a holistic therapeutic approach that is designed to heal and restore your body, mind, and spirit.

Holistic Therapy is the key to unlock your future and free you from your past.
