Dream Center for Recovery is located in Palm City, Florida, a small city on the Port St. Lucie River, near the Atlantic Ocean. Dream Center provides both residential and outpatient treatment. The facility opened its doors in 2014 and specializes in holisitic, evidence-based treatment in highly-structured treatment plans. Outpatient treatment is offered at the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) levels of care and all outpatient clients are required to participate in 12-step meetings in addition to group and individual therapy.
Treatment and Staff
PHP clients attend group therapy six days a week, from 9 am to 3 pm. Most PHP clients complete their treatment plan in six weeks. IOP clients attend group therapy three times a week for three hours, and the average duration of treatment is three months. All clients also have individual therapy at least once a week. PHP clients often step-down and complete treatment in the IOP.
Treatment groups usually have fewer than 12 participants and are led by Master’s-level therapists and addiction counselors, including MFTs. Therapy is solutions-focused and incorporates CBT, trauma-informed care and EMDR.
In addition to processing groups, clients participate in life skills classes and experiential therapy, including equine therapy and, for PHP clients, adventure therapy on Sundays. The treatment team at Dream Center strongly believes in the 12-step framework and asks PHP clients to attend daily group meetings and IOP clients to complete a “90 and 90,” a term that refers to attending 90 12-step meetings in 90 days.
Clients with co-occurring disorders can work with a consulting psychiatrist for dual diagnosis support, and loved ones are invited to participate in family therapy.
Dream Center prides itself on ensuring that clients are committed to recovery and able to provide support and inspiration to one another while in treatment. Outpatient clients are usually required to have completed inpatient treatment before enrolling, or otherwise demonstrating a commitment to and familiarity with recovery principles.
Dream Center provides a weekly aftercare group once clients have completed the IOP. Outpatient clients who’d benefit from residential support during treatment may be able to reside in Dream Center’s residential facility or in an affiliated sober living home.
Dream Center for Recovery provides structured, multi-level outpatient treatment that incorporates evidence-based and holistic modalities such as EMDR and adventure therapy. Its treatment team screen clients to make sure they’re a good match for the commitment-level its programs require, creating a safe and motivating environment for its clients and clinicians.
