Located in the small beachside community of Fort Pierce, the Florida Center for Recovery has been providing comprehensive treatment since 2002 for individuals struggling with substance abuse, process addictions and related mental health conditions.
Accommodations and Food
The Florida Center for Recovery is located on 12 acres of private land on the Treasure Coast of Florida. 72 men and women are housed according to gender in dormitories with double occupancy rooms. Several separate buildings accommodate the detox center, therapeutic center, dining halls, lounges and games rooms. Television is allowed here during down time, but cell phones and personal computers are not.
The grounds are accessible and expansive including a Zen waterfall for meditation, horseshoe throwing on the lawn, basketball and volleyball courts and an organic garden.
A four-star chef prepares all of the meals with the assistance of a nutritionist and vegetarian options are always offered.
Treatment and Staff
Detox and medical stabilization occur on the premises, supervised by a doctor from the local hospital, and every client undergoes an extensive addiction treatment assessment on admission. A board-certified physician, a licensed psychologist, drug and alcohol counselors and a certified trauma therapist work together to create individualized therapeutic protocols in order to treat the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the disease of addiction.
The 45-day residential treatment program combines traditional and holistic therapies with 12-step ideology and SMART Recovery. Clients participate in a structured six-day-a-week program, six hours a day, with 12-step meetings scheduled in the evenings. Daily group therapy is augmented with weekly individual sessions and a family program. Clients take part in grief and loss counseling, recreational and art therapy and relapse prevention and addiction classes. In addition, the Florida Center for Recovery makes spiritual counseling, yoga and meditation, chiropractic care and acupuncture a part of the schedule.
Organized meditation, the serenity bed, art therapy, chiropractic care, auricular acupuncture, personal training, outdoor volleyball and basketball courts and beach days are some of the extras offered at the Florida Center for Recovery.
The goal here is to create a comprehensive individualized treatment protocol that treats the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of the disease, utilizing both traditional and holistic therapies. The inclusion of a wealth of alternative therapies in the programming at the Florida Center for Recovery make it an attractive option at a reasonable price—especially for those who object to 12-step higher power ideology.
