Treatment and Staff
Above All’s three phase program is known as Recover, Rebuild and Rise. If a client is in need of detox prior to beginning treatment, Above All can make referrals to off-site detox facilities.
Recover is the initial step where clients are often feeling a good amount of anxiety surrounding their new life and are in need of significant support. This step emphasizes the importance of providing structure through a number of assigned chores and regular AA attendance. There are evening group sessions and self care meetings along with the assistance of finding work during the day. This is the more intensive step in this program that requires the most accountability and communication from the clients.
The next phase, Rebuild, allows for clients to have more freedom and personal time outside of the treatment facility. There are regular sessions and alumni support during this step alone with career development. There are also regular volunteer opportunities so clients can add that to their resumes while seeking out full time employment.
The final phase, Rise, is where clients are using their newly found life skills within the workforce while attending counseling sessions. This step allows for the most freedom within clients personal lives while participating in alumni activities.
Treatment uses evidence-based approaches including CBT, DBT, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and trauma focused therapies, like Traumatic Incident Reduction (TIR) to examine past experiences that may have lead to the existing addiction. In addition there are several holistic methods used within programming, like expressive therapies, psychodrama, hypnosis, art and music therapy.
The treatment team include LCSWs, ACSWs, RNs, medical doctors, CACs and LPNs.
Clients who are participating in the recovery program reside in the Pompano Beach housing community, which is a small apartment complex in South Florida. The two bedroom units are double occupancy and provide all the comforts of home. There are small kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms, all of which are fully furnished and stocked. The housing is close to the treatment campus as well as the recovery workshop, and gives clients access to shops, restaurants, grocery stores and more. Clients live in a quiet and safe part of town that has an active social structure.
An integral part of treatment is the Recovery Workshop, which is an open studio that is free to anyone within the recovery community. Clients have access to the equipment and materials and receive vocational training in carpentry, plumbing, basic maintenance, and electrical in addition to creative arts.
Some additional holistic program options include yoga and guided meditation sessions.
Above All Recovery Center is an affordable treatment program that offers an alternative to intensive inpatient care. The outpatient treatment provides real world experiences along with comprehensive therapy options. Clients are given extensive vocational and educational support while learning self care and accountability within a very caring environment.
