Fellowship Hall opened in December, 1971 – the manifestation of four Greensboro businessmen who shared an addiction to alcohol and the passion to help others build a new life in recovery. They modeled Fellowship Hall’s program after Harbor House in Memphis, TN and the 12-step philosophy. We were the first Alcohol and Drug Treatment Specialty Hospital licensed by the State of North Carolina.
Fellowship Hall is a mission-driven and value-oriented organization that is considered by professionals in the field of addiction as “the grandfather of treatment” in the southeast. Our Board of Directors, through careful management of resources and prudent long-range planning, has kept the cost of care significantly lower than comparable treatment centers.
We have earned the reputation of being a center of teaching excellence, providing substance use disorder training to Duke University Health System’s Psychiatric Residency Program, as well as training to local universities’ nursing and counseling programs.
There are many things unique about Fellowship Hall, and we are different for a reason – to afford our guests the best possible opportunity to find the answers they seek. Our mission is to provide exceptional, cost-effective care and ensure that each guest is treated with dignity and respect, in a safe and serene environment.
We have treated over 30,500 guests and are committed to providing a “Gateway to Freedom,” to all those who seek our help.
