The Recovery Team offers substance abuse treatment for men and women just a few blocks from the ocean in North Palm Beach, Florida. Programs include a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) with a gender-specific sober living option.
Originally founded in 1995 as Recovery Resources, co-founders Bill Schrader and Fred Pettersen opened the small outpatient clinic to offer 12-step based treatment. Their success was immediate, prompting numerous expansions over the years while remaining true to their commitment and core beliefs. In 2012, the company was restructured and renamed The Recovery Team.
Treatment and Staff
The Recovery Team offers individualized programs for every client. An initial assessment determines whether the programs would be a good fit. Those with co-occurring disorders can expect psychological support and medication management.
PHP is six hours a day, Monday through Friday, and consists of multiple group sessions a day and at least one individual session a week. Gender-specific and co-ed groups are available, as are those specifically dedicated to trauma-informed care and co-occurring disorders. Therapy methods can include CBT, Motivational Interviewing (MI), EMDR and biofeedback. All clients are required to attend AA/NA meetings, which are offered on-site in the evening.
After 30 days, clients can transition to the IOP, which meets three to five times a week for three hours of group. This phase usually lasts six weeks, though length can vary. The next level is a standard outpatient program that as a step-down, where clients attend only one group a week and one individual session a month.
The program incorporates holistic approaches like art therapy, meditation, nutritional counseling, massage therapy. There is also a free family program for loved ones over 18 that includes group therapy and classes.
The two gender-specific sober living homes have space for a total of 12 clients. All include full kitchens, washers and dryers and attractive furnishings that are clean and comfortable. Residents share rooms and bathrooms with one other person while they build life skills by shopping for groceries and preparing their own breakfasts and dinners. Catered lunches are served daily during treatment at the clinical facility for those in PHP. Those living off-site at the sober living homes are provided with transportation to the facility for treatment.
The Recovery Team offers a great mix of evidence-based care and peer support in a beautiful location. This is a good choice for those who are looking for structured, multi-tiered outpatient care with a sober living option.
