HARP Treatment Center


The Basics

HARP Treatment Center began providing residential and outpatient treatment in Palm Beach, Florida six years ago. Its name is an acronym for Honesty, Assertiveness, Responsibility and Peace. While the treatment center is relatively new, its executive and clinical staff have decades of experience treating clients battling substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.

HARP supports client who wish to work the 12 steps and those who don’t; it also has a dedicated treatment track for clients with PTSD and actively encourages family members to participate in recovery activities.

Accommodations and Food

Residential clients occupy modern waterfront condominiums that were renovated in 2013. The program treats up to 30 residential clients at one time. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condos have contemporary furnishings, including pillowtop mattresses and 42” plasma TVs. Clients usually have roommates, with four residents occupying each condo. However, single rooms are available for an additional fee.

Local restaurants cater each meal. Residents select from a variety of cuisines each week and can enjoy eating in the complex’s waterfront dining area. For recreation, residents can enjoy amenities in the complex’s common areas and waterfront, including ping-pong, paddle boarding and snorkeling.

Treatment and Staff

Residential clients can undergo detox at HARP. Once they’re ready for treatment, they make an initial commitment of 30 days, which can be extended as-needed. Many residential clients step down to HARP’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), spending an average of three to four months in the programs, combined.

Treatment at HARP is divided into five phases:

  • Assessment & Evaluation
  • Treatment Goals & Objectives
  • Design & Customize the Treatment Plan
  • Implementing Treatment
  • Analyze & Collaborate

Clients begin their days with goals groups and then have two clinical therapy groups before noon. After lunch, clients have individual therapy and/or meet in small groups with their primary therapist to evaluate their treatment progress. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, clients are transported to the gym for a workout; on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons they have yoga. On weekends, residents have art and music therapy and other recreational and expressive activities.

Therapy at HARP is solutions-focused and uses CBT and DBT. HARP also specializes in trauma treatment and clients in need of help processing traumatic events can have sessions with its EMDR therapist. Gender-specific groups are available, as are groups for clients who’ve chronically relapsed. Peer support is encouraged, and clients who want to work the 12 steps are transported to nearby meetings in the evenings. Clients are also encouraged to explore other peer support frameworks, such as SMART Recovery.

The treatment team at HARP includes LMHCs, LADCs, CAPs and NAADCs. HARP also has a psychiatrist on-site several times each week for dual diagnosis support. Residents have access to an on-site nurse practitioner 24/7 for medication management and behavioral health technicians also provide around the clock support and supervision.


HARP holds a family workshop the second weekend of each month in which families are invited to partake in support and education groups, family therapy and a community barbecue. Each client works with her therapist to create a customized aftercare plan, which may include enrollment in HARP’s outpatient programs while residing in an affiliated sober living residence. HARP maintains an active alumni group that holds monthly social events.

In Summary

HARP Treatment Center prides itself on offering holistic, multi-phase treatment that incorporates dual diagnosis support and family support and counseling. Its multi-disciplinary treatment team has expertise in trauma-informed care and relapse prevention, ensuring that clients have the opportunity to examine how events in their past and present lives impact their addiction.

  1. I have worked in the treatment industry for 12 years. Sadly, Gino found me and I went to work for him. He’s the exact reason why South Florida is what it is. He’s a pos. One Sunday while I was in church and he called. My phone was in the car. I called him back when church was over and here’s what he said. “I don’t give a f$&@ if you’re in confession. When I f$&@ing call you answer.” I told him to shove it up his ass. My employment was less than three weeks. Thank God. This guy belongs in jail. Along with the other executives.


    HARP has now closed it’s doors for BUSINESS. No real surprise at all as the owner— little Gino Cicerchia was the most negative abusive person I have seen involved with a Treatment Center in 30 YEARS. He was responsible for the highest Turnover rate among employees I’ve ever seen in any THREE treatment centers combined. Gino was nothing more than a dry drunk and had absolutely no “recovery” whatsoever; all he ever seemed to “practice” was employee harassment and HATE. A very very sick individual. ( The night before he married his wife-Chrissie-the co-owner of HARP–who was a super great person-the exact opposite of Gin—–Gino relapsed on cocaine—The wedding was called off unless Gino straightened up his act and went to intensive Therapy.)

  3. Stay away… no restaurant or catered food…you get an $80 gift card for the week. Staff cut back. Cut back on everything. Fewer therapists brought in etc.. They will make you sign a promissory note charging you excessive fees insurance will not cover…Nurse screws up all the appointments…they screw up the meds..verbal abuse from staff and owner..they, lie dont stick to what is agreed upon before you get there,,..All for only 35 k, 40 or 50 k per month ..then 30 days is up..they insist you stay..need more treatment..as soon as insurance runs out you are on a plane home at your expense of course.
