Specialization

  • Detox

    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
  • Process Abuse Treatment

    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

    My son was homeless in west palm beach and had been through so many centers all over that area. I was feeling hopeless. I reached out this ARTR and staff assured me he would be taken care of. So on a whim, I sent him here. I wasn't lied to! They took my son in, got him food and a bed. He seen a therapist every day, great group sessions. The other places took him kayaking and on boats BUT WHAT DOES THAT DO?? This place is practical I have my son back today. He is over ten months clean!!! This is a miracle and I have to thank everyone at a Road To Recovery. Thank god and thank you!!!

    This place is a low quality treatment center. Yes, they do take a lot of people who have little to no money (or a car) and that sounds great but what happens is, the people who do pay full price or have good insurance policies suffer because there is no money for any amenities. I have been told that they can survive on 12 insurance policies at any time. This place does nothing for the clients, they only go to the beach once a week and if they have enough people, they go to the gym only 2 times a week. They do not have any other activities for the clients and they don’t go on any outings (movies, kayak, bowling, equine therapy ect). You only get 50$ a week in grocery money and you only shop at Winn-Dixie. They have tube TV’s in the houses, no flat screens, no internet, no Netflix, no hulu, just basic cable...The clients run this place and they know it, it is like a zoo there. Clients get to choose when there discharge dates are, not clinical and they caterer to couples. They have little to no structure, the building is disgusting because they have never hire a cleaning crew. ...There clinical team is weak and turnover is high (6 counselors in 6 months)...They fired great employees on black Friday because of budgeting issues, only give employees 5 PTO days after they have completed a year. For the past 2 years there have been no holiday bonus, Christmas parties and this year, there was no new year’s paid holiday. ...They leased out their new detox to their rival treatment center and lost complete control of it. They made multiple promises of better positions, raises, and opportunities to multiple employees and nothing was given after they leased the detox...Do your research and find a better place to get recovery.
