Amethyst Recovery Center

2749 SW Port St. Lucie Blvd, Port Saint Lucie, Florida, 34952
With over 75 years of combined experience, our staff is uniquely qualified to guide you through the recovery journey. Instead of transitioning from one treatment facility to a separate intensive outpatient treatment center, clients will stay with Amethyst for the duration of their treatment. From the first day of treatment, clients will form bonds with staff and with each other that will last through sober living and beyond. This continuity of care allows for a deeper level of trust and understanding between clients and their therapy team.

Facility Highlights

  • Privately funded facility, does not accept state funded insurance programs
  • JCAHO Accreditation
  • "A+" rated by BBB


  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

On behalf of Amethysts recovery center I just want to hightlight one of the members (Patrick ) who works within the facility. I went to this program years back and was the first time I ever even thought about seeking treatment. My stay was short on my behalf and my mental state and issues , things I was holding on to back home and my addiction not being anything I was taking as serious as I should have with the opportunity they gave me thru a scholarship atleast not in that time period of my life. Since leaving I have called a few times over the years but recently I've came to the point of exhaustion and wanting a life free from what's had a hold of me. I don't want to write to much as easily as I could get lost in doing I just wanted to say out of everyone ive spoke to there or the different programs and places ive called around south Florida Patrick has shown or made me feel as tho someone was rooting for me or genuinely caring for my recovery. I've still been unsuccessful in finding a place for me but to anyone trying I know there are many but from my experience you'll definitely have one person who's genuine about your recovery over anything.

I can say this place saved my son’s life, he is another person and the doctors and nurses are amazing. I don’t have complains only thankful day and night. If you need a place to send a love one, this is the place. The attention, the calls to let me know how he was doing the one and one with therapist, patient and family member was amazing.

I am the spouse of a pt that was treated here for over 2 weeks. Their admissions people answer phone promptly & are very good at communication. Unfortunately, once they have your insurance info the communication & responsiveness is ZERO. I am on my husband\'s HIPPA, which means legally I\'m entitled to any and all info regarding his treatment. NO communication at all with any therapists or counselors involved in his treatment. My husband was scheduled to leave 5 days ago. On the scheduled departure day, i received a phone call that additional treatment was recommended & if he (pt) transferred to another facility, there was & i quote, \" a 98% chance he would never relapse, ie abuse alcohol, drugs again. Felt very pressured to agree.. When I called numerous times, asking for a return phone call, one of 2 things happened. Only option was to leave a voice-mail for clinical director, who never bothered to call back ( several messages left). Other options , ie press 1,2,3 rang & rang & no options to leave message. I called admissions number today which was answered after 1 ring. Explained my disappointment & after 30 minutes or so my husband called. While I has happy to talk to my spouse, that is completely NOT the point. When I called after hours tonight, automatic option was to press X & be given nurses station. Rang & rang & again no option to leave voice-mail or request a return phone call. I am a physician & this is NOT standard of care. I am convinced this place is a SCAM. Their website touts dual diagnosis, again medically very relevant. They do NONE.
