ABOUT BREAKTHROUGH RECOVERY SERVICES INC
Serving South Florida for over 17 years, Breakthrough Recovery Services, Inc. provides traditional outpatient-based programs and services for adults struggling with chemical dependency. Through its four locations in Okeechobee, Fort Pierce, Sebastian, and Vero Beach, Breakthrough Recovery Services also provides treatment services that satisfy court-ordered treatments for offenses related to DUI, drug possession, and anger management.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission into the program, clients participate in an initial assessment to determine client needs and identify any court-mandated requirements. Depending on the assessment, clinicians form an individualized treatment plan.
Breakthrough Recovery Services’ treatment for chemical dependency is a blend of group counseling and educational classes held four times a year. Experiential therapies offered include equine therapy, yoga, massage therapy, holistic therapy, and life coaching.
A major service of Breakthrough Recovery Services is its Alternative Sentencing Assistance Program (ASAP), a drug court and probation-approved program that provides an alternative to incarceration for drug possession, DUI, and other substance abuse-related charge.
Once a client completes a traditional or court-ordered outpatient program, the facility offers an aftercare program that provides ongoing support with a focus on relapse prevention.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Out of five stars, the alum gave a four-star rating for the program’s level of family participation, though offered two-star ratings for the facility’s counseling options and cost-worthiness. “Not enough in depth treatment…” the alum wrote, adding, “I would say this is more for relapse prevention or ongoing treatment. I would not recommend this for serious addicts.”
