About Hammocks Recovery

At Hammocks on the Edisto, we’re committed to the long-term health of every woman in our treatment program. As a result, we work each day to ensure that we are providing the best possible care that we tailor to each woman’s needs. Using a holistic treatment approach in a community environment that addresses addiction as a chronic mental health condition, rather than an isolated event, we strive to give each woman the support she needs for a brighter future. If you have addiction recovery questions about our treatment staff or admissions process, call our substance abuse treatment program today at 833.549.0383 to learn more about Hammocks on the Edisto.

Location Is Everything

Situated near beautiful Charleston, Hammocks’ location is ideal for day trips designed to enrich the treatment experience, exploring sober recreational activities that residents can engage in on their recovery journey.

Charleston, South Carolina is known for its beauty, and rich history, but that’s not all it has to offer. The Condè Nast Traveler Magazine voted Charleston one of the Best Cities in the U.S., as well as making the top ten list for Best Hotels in the U.S., and Top Resorts. 

Our residents also enjoy what the entire Charleston community has to offer. Our off-site experiences are just as important as the on-site experiences as they help prepare our residents for life after treatment!

Our Mission

The mission of Hammocks on the Edisto is to provide a supportive and enriching environment in which women can begin the healing process of recovery from substance use disorders. Consequences are the natural result of the choices we make, and as we learn to make better choices through guidance and example, our lives become more meaningful. We believe that women are at the very core of our families and society, and so, as we strengthen each woman individually, we strengthen our world.

Our Values

Empowering women to find recovery from substance use disorders.

Women's Stories of Hope

I stayed at the Hammocks in the spring of 2022. I can’t say enough wonderful things about my time there. I came into the Hammocks in a very low place but left feeling empowered, motivated and ready to start my life in sobriety. The staff and administration are fantastic, and the house and grounds are gorgeous. I felt more like a welcomed guest rather than a patient.

Lauren B.

The most incredible treatment facility ever! They offer a holistic approach centered in therapy, science, and female empowerment. Eric, Sarah, Jonas, Katie, and all of the other staff offer a level of compassion that I’ve never seen before in any treatment facility. And that says a lot coming from a child of two addicts who have been in and out of facilities my entire life. They are always available and respond quickly to any questions or discussions you may bring up. The family groups were amazing and I miss them every week. They truly care and believe that recovery is possible for all!

Lauren B.

My wife spent a month at the Hammocks and I have nothing but incredible things to say about the facility. The help and therapy she received has truly been life changing for our family. From the day I called to discuss admission, Jonas, the director, made himself immediately available to any questions or concerns I had. Throughout her stay, I participated in multiple family sessions a week with Sarah or Eric who were both excellent. They were kind and accepting, but also thought-provoking and challenging. Not to mention, the whole facility is absolutely beautiful. I would highly recommend the Hammocks to any family in need of a recovery center.

Erica U.

This facility has absolutely saved my life. It is secluded, peaceful, beautiful, and a lovely gone environment that makes external and internal healing much easier to tackle. Being away from family and doing the intense work needed for recovery is hard enough in any environment but the Hammocks makes you feel like you are nothing shy of family. You are treated with respect and kindness, and your needs are listened to and accommodated and the staff is so loving and supportive.

Krista B.

As a therapist at Hammocks on the Edisto, I am so proud to be a part of this great team of caring professionals. Being directly involved in the process of change for our clients is a honor. The facility is beautiful and inviting and provides a healthy environment for our residents to thrive. The programming is like nothing I’ve been part of before. From our comprehensive and diverse group sessions, the wellness and yoga component, our individual therapy, medical and nursing care, nutrition and on site chef, and a great team of recovery associates, we collectively provide a great recovery experience.

Eric H.

Hammocks on the Edisto is a dream come true in so many ways. This is a unique place where women can progress on their journey to recovery surrounded by the beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry and supported by a team of compassionate expert providers. Offerings beyond talk therapy include yoga, cooking demonstrations, adventures to local parks and beaches, and wellness coaching. The facility is never over crowded and each woman gets lots of personalized care. The healing potential is felt as soon as you drive down the long private driveway to the house. Highly recommend.

Kate A.

I was able to rediscover myself and my inner light. It was diminished for too many years and Hammocks has helped me health from the inside out. I am prepared for my future and content with my recovery and life.

H. G.

My stay here at Hammocks has been life changing. I will never forget all of the staff and women here who have made my journey successful. Without all of you I would still be broken. Love to all.


My time at the Hammocks was an absolute blessing and saved my life. This magical place on the water is beautiful, safe, and peaceful. I have made lifelong connections and relationships with all of the strong women I have met here. From the counselors and therapists, to the chef and housekeeping, Hammocks allowed me to really get vulnerable while making me feel right at home. I will always remember the amazing and calming energy, from the moment I walked through the door and will always utilize the life changing tools that were given to me during my stay. Hammocks has changed my outlook on life and has me excited to see what the future holds for my recovery!
