The Basics

In 1995, a small group of women within the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale had a vision of providing mothers and their families a safe place to recover from addiction. That vision became the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center, which has since grown from one group home to a stunning five-and-a-half acre facility for women and their children.

Over the course of 20 years, Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center has helped over 850 families while supporting over 1500 high-risk children. Located in Pembroke Pines, Florida, Susan B. Anthony helps families end a life of addiction and abuse while also treating co-occurring disorders.

Clients have the option to take care part in a residential or an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). Susan B. Anthony is one of the only facilities within South Florida that provides addicted mothers and their children a safe place to recover. Since the facility is non-profit, funding comes from the state and county, as well as from private donations.

Accommodations and Food

The main goal at Susan B. Anthony is to provide a safe environment where families can be treated as a unit. The residence is a complex with 40 apartments. Each comes fully furnished and includes a full-size kitchen, large bathroom, living room, dining room and bedrooms. The apartments can accommodate a mother and up to three children each.

Since most women at Susan B. Anthony come from homeless shelters, jail or are recommended from foster care, many clients show up with little more than the clothes they’re wearing. These women are provided housing and food, and also participate in nutrition and cooking classes. Within their apartments, they’re encouraged to cook and clean, and care for their children as they normally would. The approach is designed to encourage healthy habits, as women learn to live productive sober lives.

Treatment and Staff

Once residents arrive, they go through a full bio-psycho-social assessment which is then used to create individualized treatment plans. Customized plans include family and couples counseling, group and individual therapy, trauma reduction and educational services.

While in treatment, clients have access to 24/7 support. Children are offered both individual and group therapy, which helps them build social skills in a safe and structured environment. Women also have access to substance abuse classes and self-esteem workshops.

Throughout the week, residents participate in daily activities that include educational, vocational, therapeutic and recreational opportunities. These include anything from support group sessions to job training to appropriate childcare. All of these services are held in the main treatment building, which is separate from the childcare center and housing. On the weekends, Susan B. Anthony offers visitation hours, 12-step meetings and fun activities that involve the other clients. Residents also have access to acupuncture twice weekly.

Women have access to a variety of educational resources as well, including GED courses, strategies for success (including study skills so that women can enhance their learning experience), job readiness, career exploration, computer skills, personal budgeting and finance. Mothers and children also take part in development and parenting classes.

Susan B. Anthony focuses intently on holistic family healing. They offer a team of 30 professionals who provide treatment for both substance abuse and mental health, among them psychiatrists, nurses and case managers. In addition to the psychologists, doctors and nurses who work within the facility, the child care center is run by Dr. Wendy Siegel and various other early education specialists. This child care facility holds 125 children.

Extras

Susan B. Anthony provides excellent aftercare, with alumni free to participate in both group and individual therapy, continued assessments and further treatment planning. Relapse prevention classes and continued family support are also available. This facility offers excellent services and support for low budget families, with fees based on income and a variety of other factors; private insurance is also accepted.

In Summary

Overall, Susan B. Anthony is a well-rounded treatment facility that offers residential, clinical, psychiatric and medical services. This is the only facility in South Florida which offers such an intensive level of support to mothers and their children. Susan B. Anthony’s goal for the past two decades has been to stop the cycle of addiction and abuse within families, and within that approach they provide affordable and compassionate care.

    I have a Loved ONE in this facility now and as I am reading ALL the programs you claim you offer here, I have not been told that this is really being offered now. I understand this is a RE_HAB & rules do apply but from what I have heard and seen is that most of these programs do not EXIST- I visit every week-end and at this time the I understand EVERYONE in there is on LOCK-DOWN due to raiding rooms & finding cell phones or cigarettes. DO YOU think it’s FAIR or healthy that these ladies who are pregnant should be confined to their rooms 24/7? DO you THINK THIS HELPS WITH OVER-COMING THEIR ADDICTIONS OR DOES IT MAKE A PERSON WANT TO LEAVE SINCE NOT MANY PROGRAMS ARE OFFERED. THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE A TELEVISION ? OR HAVE ONLY CERTAIN HOURS WHICH ARE LIMITED TO CALL FAMILY MEMBERS? THIS IS ___ NOT___ HEALTHY! I HAVE TALKED TO OTHER RE-HABS AND THERE PROGRAMS OFFER SO MANY OTHER WAYS TO HELP THESE LADIES BUT I DON’T HAVE THE FUNDS FOR THAT. YOUR PROGRAMS SHOULD BE DESIGNED TO “””” HELP””” THESE LADIES ___ NOT HAVE STAFF TREAT THEM AS THEY ARE IN PRISON WHICH IS THE FEELING I GET WHEN I LISTEN TO MOST OF THESE LADIES TELL ME WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPEN THERE. GED PROGRAMS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE OFFERED- TALK TO THESE LADIES LIKE THEY ARE HUMANS NOT ANIMALS – I AM DEEPLY CONCERNED AND REALLY DON’T THINK YOUR VERSION OF WHAT YOU SAY YOU OFFER __ IS REALLY OFFERED– DO YOU NOT THINK THAT LETTING THEM MAKE A PHONE CALL TO FAMILY IS GOING TO HARM THEM? I DON’T AGREE — IF I WAS THERE IT WOULD BE NOT A SUITABLE PLACE FOR ME TO WANT TO STAY TO RE-COVER AS YOU CANNOT TREAT PEOPLE LIKE CRIMINALS —- THEY HAVE A ”’ DISEASE” CALLED DRUG ADDICTION. I LOOKED AT OTHER RE-HABS AND IT’S LIKE DAY AND NITE FROM WHAT THEY OFFER TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS FACILITY. I DO NOT WANT MY LOVED ONE TO LEAVE, BUT I REALLY THINK YOU NEED TO HONOR WHAT YOU ARE PROMISING IN YOUR AD AS I DON’T SEE THIS GOING ON. THERE SHOULD BE PROGRAMS TO USE THE COMPUTERS TO CHECK THINGS OUT FOR THEIR RELEASE FROM THERE- USING A PHONE ISN’T GOING TO HARM THEM – I MISS HEARING FROM MY LOVED ONE & SIT HERE AND WORRY EVERY DAY HOW SHE IS DOING. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE OR I WILL SEND A LETTER TO THE DIRECTOR WHO RUNS THIS PLACE AND LET THEM KNOW MY CONCERNS. THESE LADIES ARE THERE FOR HELP- NOT TO BE TALKED TO LIKE THEY DON’T EVEN EXIST- MEDS SHOULD BE GIVEN ON TIME- I COULD GO ON AND ON BUT I GUESS I WILL WRITE A LETTER TO WHO RUNS THESE FACILITIES AND SEE IF ___ THIS IS HOW IT IS RUN AND I AM WRONG BUT SPEAKING TO OTHER REHABS I GOT SUCH A DIFFERENT FEELING THAN I GET FROM THIS PLACE. ONCE AGAIN,, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO ON LOCK DOWN FOR A WEEK STUCK IN THEIR ROOMS? SIT AND CRY AND REGRET WHY THEY ENDED UP THERE OR SHOULD YOU BE HELPING THEM ALLOWING MORE PRIVILEGES ? MAYBE YOU NEED TO RE-CONTRUCT YOUR PROGRAMS AND OFFER WHAT YOU SAY YOU OFFER. I CERTAINLY WOULD NOT WANT TO BE LOCKED IN MY ROOM FOR THE ENTIRE DAY DOING WHAT ? FEELING SORRY FOR HOW I MESSED UP AND MISSING MY CHILDREN AND FAMILY? I WOULD LIKE TO MEET WITH EITHER DR. WENDY SIEGEL OR MS. SONYA WHO DOESN’T SEEM TO ENJOY HER JOB AS HER ATTITUDE FROM WHAT I AM TOLD IS LESS THAN ”’ FRIENDLY”‘..I WILL DO MORE INVESTIGATING TO SEE IF THIS IS HOW THIS OPERATION SHOULD BE RUNNING* THANK YOU

    This non-profit recovery center is an amazing operation, and that’s why I volunteered to be co-chair of their 20th Anniversary fundraiser on April 9, 2016, presented by United Healthcare. Come celebrate with MC Kristi Krueger of WPLG Locall 10 at “Night of Stars” at the Pine Ridge Country Club in Davie, Florida. Your contribution for tickets,v corporate sponsorship, auction items and program ads are tax deductible, and give “Help, Hope and Healing” to the women who need a safe place for recovery, and their children. Details and forms can be found at http://www.sbarecovery.org/Night_of_Stars.
