Founded in 2013 by husband and wife Mike and Marisa Way outside Boca Raton in Deerfield Beach, Florida, Gracious Care Recovery Solutions started as a female-only sober living house. The facility recently expanded to provide faith-based outpatient substance abuse treatment, as well as gender-specific sober living homes for clients undergoing various levels of outpatient care. At Gracious Care Recovery Solutions, their mission is to provide a Christian sober housing program, which focuses on creating a strong sense of fellowship among residents.
Accommodations and Amenities
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions has a 32-bed capacity and accommodates clients in four single-family homes located in Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach. There are two female-only and two male-only houses. The women’s house in Deerfield Beach boasts a white walled, tiled interior. Clients are paired in uniquely furnished rooms, which include twin beds with cherry red comforters, a flat screen TV, a nightstand with shelves, stuffed animals and dressers or closets. At the Deerfield men’s house, one single room is available, but typically men are paired in double-occupancy rooms. Furnishings parallel those found in the women’s houses.
The fully equipped kitchens include brand new stainless steel appliances. Residents are responsible for their own groceries, and meal preparation. Amenities include laundry facilities, a swimming pool (at the Deerfield-women’s house), Jacuzzi (at the men’s Deerfield house), laundry facilities, Wi-Fi and cable TV. Smoking is permitted outside in the back patio only. Each house has a live-in residential manager.
