  • Process Abuse Treatment

    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.
  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Client & Family Support Groups

    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Billy Grande
    Billy GrandeClinical Director, CACD II, AAS Degree in Substance Abuse, Certification in Counseling, HIPPA Certified, RADT1 Registered, Bachelor’s in Psychology
    Here at Tree House Recovery, we have learned that there is a very particular “recipe” for an effective, impactful and successful Chemical Dependency Counselor. Some truly essential ingredients include…a balanced blend of humanity and intelligence for translating scientific data in language that resonates for clients still under the spell of PAWS… a charismatic humility for grabbing and holding the interest of an audience with very limited recent exposure to the “classroom dynamic”… a solidly flexible spine that allows for the seamless transition from teacher to task master to caring mentor in the blink of a client’s eye. In reality, it is indeed a special human who can honestly claim these attributes to be naturally his own. In Billy Grande, we have been introduced to that “rare blend.”

Rehabs 360 Guide


Located in Portland, Ore., Tree House Recovery PDX is a long-term residential program for men seeking treatment for chemical dependency. It is one of the 125 (55.3 percent) facilities in Oregon that offers treatment programs specifically for men. Unique to Tree House Recovery, the facility utilizes both evidence-based and traditional methods, as well as an intensive physical fitness regimen throughout the residential program to promote sustainable recovery. The facility does not provide medical detoxification services on-site.


Upon admission, clients may undergo an initial substance abuse history assessment to help clinicians develop an individualized treatment curriculum. Overall, Tree House Recovery PDX's treatment utilizes three core approaches to programming: counseling and education, holistic methods, and physical fitness training. The length of the long-term residential program is determined by individual needs and treatment progress. There are only 33 (14.6 percent) facilities in Oregon that offer long-term treatment options.

During the resident program, clients attend both process group therapy and one-on-one counseling to address the underlying concerns that may contribute to addictive behavior. Residents also attend educational presentations and interactive group classes that cover a range of topics related to chemical dependency, including the physiology of addiction, predisposition factors, and relapse prevention skills training.

Tree House Recovery also uses the RIA program to promote goal setting and lasting physical changes. The program is designed to teach clients ongoing physical fitness methods of relapse prevention. By training clients to maintain their bodies, they are less likely to return to substance abuse.

To improve mindfulness, self-expression, and coping skills, Tree House Recovery also requires residents to participate in writing therapy. Writing therapy is designed to guide clients through a self-analysis of traumatic memories to process and address them. In addition, clients attend a trauma-informed method of yoga designed to address physical and mental health concerns simultaneously.

Intensive physical fitness training plays a major role in overall programming. During the residential programming, clients participate in vigorous workouts led by Tree House's trainers. One component of the fitness regimen is Action Based Induction Therapy (ABI Therapy), which is a repetitive form of exercise that is designed to improve the prefrontal cortex function of the brain. Often diminished through prolonged addiction, this part of the brain is responsible for overall mood and self-esteem. In some cases, fitness training may also be goal-oriented, as residents may compete in monthly competitions, such as Spartan races and team challenges.


Tree House Recovery PDX employs a multidisciplinary team comprised of a physician, substance abuse counselors, specialized fitness trainers, and a yoga instructor.


Tree House Recovery features a treatment facility with a separate, homelike living facility for residents. The treatment facility features fully equipped fitness areas, counseling rooms, as well as a yoga studio. Living accommodations offer spacious communal areas and an outdoor patio. Each month, Tree House Recovery facilitates "Recovery in Action" outings, which may involve wilderness camping trips, as well as fitness and endurance competitions.

    I recently contacted Tree House Recovery in search of a place for my son. A few years back I stumbled across their website and decided to revisit it because I was intrigued by how they approach addiction and the methods they use to help men be successful in recovery. I spoke to a young man on the phone who was not only informative but so kind!! He referred me to a staff member to continue my quest for information. The staff member was such a blessing! Although my son chose to remain in our home state for intensive PHP/IOP, I cannot say enough about the way the staff handled my inquiries. We spoke several times on the phone and emailed as well. He was also able to speak to my son (while he was at an inpatient facility out of state). I truly appreciated to how he listened to what I had to say. Being a parent with a loved one in addiction, is not what anyone signs up for. While I was emotional, he was compassionate, understanding, as well as professional. To be honest, he made me want to go .... simply for the personal growth and bonds that these men will share! He took the time to ask about my son and it was never a push to simply get him to commit there. It was nice to know, that he too had a story to share and boy oh boy it's so much easier when you know that someone else understands!! I would encourage my son again, if there is ever the need, to go to Tree House Recovery. I firmly believe that this would be a life changing decision and one that would give him great success in long-term recovery/sobriety!

    W is a phenomenal individual who really takes the time to get to know the clients. He was my ESM therapist while I was in treatment and he really challenged me to push beyond my own self-established limits. He wouldn't just suggest things to ask you to do them, he would actively participate with the clients. He show the worth of the program and the activities we participated in through his own word and deed. Will B. is the Physical Director for Portland and has taken his passion for Mixed Martial Arts into the treatment structure of the program. I was privileged enough to participate in a few of the earliest incarnations of this modality. The benefits that it can provide to any individual struggling with any multitude of psychological or neurological imbalances is immense and innumerable. He understands the clients and thus can craft the sessions to benefit individuals specifically and the group as a whole. The reason for the meals being a lower ranking is because at the very beginning you are budgeting for yourself and a lot of the time my pride and ego got in the way of me asking for help on my nutrition to make a more effective and efficient use of my funds for food. However, after I requested help, I was able to take control of diet and budgeting and now am able to do things for myself in my day to day life. The lower rating was because the program wants to empower individuals to ask for the help and then it is up to the individuals to take that advice and implement it. The first couple of weeks, this could be hard for an individual to do. However, I never once went hungry and now have the means to sustain my healthy lifestyle for the duration of my life. Thanks again Will B. and the Tree House Recovery PDX staff.

    The over all treatment while attending treehouse was eye opening, I was able to find myself in a safe place surrounded by people who honestly care about me. I was able to open up and be vulnerable with men. Treehouse saved my life I'm coming up on 18months sober and I still have the momentum to keep going thanks to the tools I learned at treehouse.
