A Road To Recovery is a 48-bed treatment center in Port St. Lucie, Florida that provides individualized treatment plans for substance abuse and mental health issues. To encourage the development of life skills, it requires all clients to cook and clean for themselves. With a mixed schedule of on-site therapy and off-site AA/NA meetings, clients are able to stay connected with the outside world as they proceed through treatment. Weekends involve fun outings and, when the weather permits, clients can take part in outdoor recreational activities.. While this rehab may not offer high-end accommodations or five-star chefs, a good stab at recovery can be made here.
Accommodations and Food
Clients live in apartment-style accommodations and are split by gender. Each two-bedroom and two-bath apartment is shared between four clients and includes a full kitchen, dining room and living room with a television. Clients have access to personal laptops and cell phones after the first week of treatment. While the apartments are nothing to write home about, they provide a comfortable living environment during treatment. Unlike some rehabs that offer maid service, residents at this facility are responsible for keeping their apartments clean.
When it comes to meals, an included weekly allowance is provided to spend during supervised grocery trips. Back at their apartments, clients make meals of their own choosing.
While this facility does not offer many on-site amenities, clients can visit the local gym in the morning Monday through Friday. In addition, a yoga teacher is brought on-site every Friday to lead a group yoga class.
Treatment and Staff
Detox needs to be done before arrival, as this service is not offered at A Road to Recovery. Once clients begin the 30-day plan, they follow a rigorous schedule of individual therapy, group therapy, educational lectures, recreation and 12-step meetings. A Master’s-level therapist takes clients through individual counseling once or twice a week, in addition to several hours of group therapy per day. Group topics include trauma, relapse prevention, codependency, life skills, spirituality and processing.
The treatment at this facility is built around love, instead of rules and strictness. By immersing themselves in the world of AA/NA, clients can feel supported and take advantage of spending time with those who understand their struggles. Both on-site and off-site meetings are offered daily, in addition to groups structured around the 12 steps. Educational lectures also help clients understand the nature of addiction and the science behind it.
Family therapy is offered on a case-by-case basis. Family members are welcomed to come in and participate in individual therapy with the client. In addition, the facility offers groups and education for families.
For those who are looking for a step down from residential treatment, the facility offers an outpatient option. This program runs three times a week for three hours per day, focusing on relapse prevention, spirituality, meditation, resume building and job searching. Clients have full access to a psychiatrist during this time if medication management is needed. As an added bonus, this program offers outside speakers and weekly on-site yoga.
The staff at this facility includes nurses, a medical director, a visiting psychiatrist, Master’s level therapists and social workers.
Although A Road to Recovery lacks some of the amenities and cushioned living accommodations that other rehabs offer, a scholarship program that can cut the cost in half makes it an affordable option in sunny Florida. With a strong emphasis on life skills, clients are able to practice real-world living during their stay.
