Find Treatment for Technology Addiction

The Greenfield Recovery Center is located in the quiet, calm, country setting of Leyden, Massachusetts. The 19 serene acres of private woodlands in the foothills of the Berkshire and Green Mountain ranges provide a natural environment that allows our participants to enjoy an alternative to technology.

Leyden provides the Greenfield Recovery Center with peaceful and healing land that is conducive for an array of therapeutic and healthy experiences to focus our participants in the here and now such as:

  • Hiking and nature walks
  • Cooking and nutrition
  • Daily living and self-care skills
  • Meditation and mindfulness
  • Yoga
  • Exercise Therapies
  • Music and Art Therapies
  • Mountain Biking
  • Care of animals and house pets

As a therapeutic retreat away from Internet and technology access, the Greenfield Recovery Center will allow participants to learn and experience healthy life skills and normal interactions, without the excessive and distracting impact of screens, video games, and digital technology.
