Owls Nest’s History

The Owl’s Nest and its parent organization Owl’s Club International were founded in 2001 to provide a successful alternative to the standard “treatment center” for addiction.

The founder sought recovery at more than 25 such institutions with no long-term success. After he was finally able to overcome his addiction by properly implementing the Twelve Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous, he decided to found The Owl’s Nest to help other families avoid the financial and emotional burden caused by unsuccessful treatment attempts.

Originally a 12-bed recovery house for men, the program was designed around the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous with an emphasis on personal responsibility, self-discipline, and community. Fueled by its success, the program quickly grew to include programs for men and women, as well as vocational rehabilitation and transitional living options. Over time, as it grew, it began to weave other modalities of treatment into its program, to provide individual counseling from Masters Level therapists, psychoeducational groups, CBT, DBT, mindfulness, case management, and Life Skills training at Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient Levels of Care.

Today, The Owl’s Nest now operates locations in Florence, SC with a total of 150 beds.

Here at The Owl’s Nest, alumni are more than just a number. Completing one of the primary programs grants clients exclusive membership to a fellowship and family that they will have forever. Owl’s Nest Alumni can be found across the country and once one becomes an alumni, they are always welcome back to the facility to share their experience, strength, and hope with the newest residents.

Supportive Housing

Dealing with a substance or alcohol use disorder can be incredibly lonely. Those suffering from one may feel like no one understands what they are going through and that they have to face overcoming addiction on their own. The Owl’s Nest provides a place for people like this to thrive among peers through supportive housing.

While we believe in the importance of accountability and an independent desire to improve one’s life, you don’t need to go through addiction treatment and recovery on your own. Our supportive housing lets patients undergo their respective addiction treatment programs in a safe environment in Florence, South Carolina.
