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.
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.
