About Greenhouse Addiction Treatment Center

About Us

We offer the clinically appropriate client an opportunity to complete addiction and co-occurring disorders treatment as an outpatient as opposed to residential (or inpatient) treatment. Our programs allow the client to live offsite while attending structured treatment onsite on a part-time but still effective schedule. To accommodate the client’s family life, employment schedule, and community obligations, we offer flexible scheduling at two levels of outpatient care:

  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Outpatient Program (OP)

Patrice Owens,M.ED, LCPC, LCDC, Greenhouse Outpatient Director

Master of Education – Counseling, University of Toledo, Toledo, OH
Bachelor of Art – Social Work, Mary Manse College, Toledo, OH
PsyD Program – Clinical Psychology, Argosy¬, Chicago, IL

Founder of The Advantage Group Foundation, Director Patrice Owens came to AAC as an incisive leader in the not-for-profit sector with proven creative problem-solving skills. Handling multiple key leadership functions, Owens oversaw 26 years of continuous growth for Advantage Group, a 501(C) (3) substance abuse outpatient and intensive treatment program for adolescents and young adults serving Chicago and surrounding communities. From inception to CARF Accreditation, Owens also took the community-based Foundation through the processes of state licensure and funding.

Previously, Owens also launched and directed the IMPACT program, one of the first outpatient treatment models, at New York’s nationally recognized Phoenix House Foundation. Owens’ innovative prevention model targeted the adolescent substance abuse population, and with success, Owens was able to launch prevention models throughout the United States. Owens began her career as a clinician, but quickly took a leadership role in turning the under-used facility where she worked to a fully functioning facility. As Owens brought the facility to full potential, it grew a waiting list of clients.

Her successful entrepreneurial and leadership history made Owens an obvious choice to direct the new Greenhouse IOP. An excellent clinician, Owens is known for the ability to inspire, mentor, and motivate individuals, teams, and organizations towards excellence.
