Boca Raton’s Preferred Program for Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders

Wellness Resource Center in Boca Raton, FL offers a continuum of comprehensive treatment solutions for adult men and women, ages 18 and above, who have a primary substance use disorder diagnosis and co-occurring mental health disorders.

About Our Treatment Programs

Learn about addiction and co-occurring disorder treatment programming at Wellness Resource Center

Treatment at Wellness Resource Center is a personalized, holistic experience that features a range of treatment activities and therapeutic services, including individual, group, family, and experiential therapies. Care at our treatment center is provided by experienced and compassionate professionals who are dedicated to treating each of our clients in an all-inclusive manner: emotionally, psychologically, physically, and spiritually.

Phase 1 - Partial Hospitalization Program

Phase I: Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization inpatient program features intensive treatment activities and therapeutic programming, coupled with on-site community housing. In our Phase I program, clients at Wellness Resource Center attend treatment programming from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, and 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. Programming includes a wide cross-section of psycho-educational and process group therapy utilizing different therapeutic modalities that have proven to be truly effective in treating individuals suffering from substance use disorders with co-occurring mental health complications. Phase I clients also regularly meet with our on-site medical director and full-time nurse for continual psychiatric care, and are paired with a primary therapist and primary caseload group, which they will be involved with for the duration of their stay with us.

During non-programmatic times, clients reside at our apartment-style campus. Client apartments are comfortably furnished and include a full kitchen, central air conditioning, flatscreen televisions with cable, and all the other amenities our clients need to feel safe and comfortable while they attend addiction and dual diagnosis treatment at Wellness Resource Center. Clients are supervised by our client care technicians twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. During the times outside of group and individual therapeutic programming, clients can go to the gym, attend 12-step meetings, go on therapeutic passes, and participate in other treatment-related activities.

Phase II - Intensive Outpatient Program

Phase II: Intensive Outpatient Program

Wellness Resource Center’s unique version of intensive outpatient rehabilitation treatment (IOP) is referred to as Phase II of our Step-Down Program. In our Step-Down Program, clients who have completed our Phase I PHP track have the opportunity to extend their stay and graduate down to a lower level of care designed to help them successfully transition out of inpatient treatment and back into the world at large. During Phase II, clients can participate in ADL (activities for daily living) development, obtain employment while still receiving our support and guidance, and transition into sober living with a continuing care plan firmly in place for them.

While in the Step-Down treatment track, clients at Wellness Resource Center continue to see their primary therapist individually, receive psychiatric care, and continue to reside with us under 24-hour supervision at the client campus. Clients are expected to attend part of the core programming offered during the course of the week, including their caseload primary group and our gender-specific process groups. The remainder of the time is dedicated to working one-on-one with a case manager to practice interview skills, build a resume, look for work, and focus on other logistical elements that help prepare clients for the transition out of an institutional setting. The Step-Down treatment continuum bridges the gap many clients experience by attending only an acute inpatient or residential rehab, with little to no structure after completion.

Family Involvement During Treatment

Family Involvement

At Wellness Resource Center, we encourage the involvement of immediate family members supportive of their loved one’s recovery, such as spouses, children, parents, and grandparents. If appropriate, our clinical staff can provide routine updates to family members about their loved one’s progress during treatment, and include them in the continuing care planning process. Treatment for chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders can be a tumultuous time for many of our clients. They may experience uncomfortable emotions that would normally be suppressed with drugs or alcohol, and will be deprived of the unhealthy coping mechanisms they used in the past, in order for them to develop new, productive ones. The treatment team at Wellness Resource Center hopes to ally with the families of our clients in order to provide support, without enabling behaviors that previously hurt the family dynamic.

Wellness Resource Center offers a Family Program, where families are invited to join their loved ones for a weekend of educational and process therapy groups facilitated by the Wellness Resource Center clinical team. Family members participating in the Family Program are also able to take their loved ones on therapeutic passes during that weekend to help remind them of the importance of family and the importance of the work they are doing at Wellness Resource Center. For family members unable to attend our weekend Family Program, the primary therapists at Wellness Resource Center can also provide family therapy sessions, either in-person or over the phone. The level of involvement of the family during treatment is based on what is clinically most appropriate for each client, and can be discussed at the time of admission between the client, his or her family, and their primary therapist.

Benefits of Receiving Treatment at Wellness Resource Center

Benefits of Wellness Resource Center's treatment programs

Among the many benefits of receiving treatment at Wellness Resource Center is that we provide a seamlessly integrated spectrum of extended care services, all of which are facilitated by the same qualified members of our treatment team. Rather than having to move through multiple programs over time, clients at Wellness Resource Center who participate in our full continuum of care have the same core team of clinicians with them throughout the entirety of the treatment process, allowing our clients to continue working with professionals who understand the unique complexity of their situation. With no maximum limit on length of stay at our facility, Wellness Resource Center makes it possible for each client to receive the type, level, and duration of care that will best prepare him or her to successfully pursue lifelong recovery.

My first time entering addiction rehab was scary. I didn't know what program or treatment I needed but I knew that I needed help. The way that Wellness uses a step-by-step approach to their treatment really helped me take back my power and overcome the addiction that was destroying my life and my family. I can't recommend Wellness' treatment program enough.
