Evolutions Treatment Center’s firmly believes that no single person arrives at treatment, in the same way, so no one person’s treatment should be the same as another.
Our full continuum of care, designed by experienced and highly credentialed clinicians, was created in a way that helps the patient understand the root cause of one’s addiction and then by using a number of various treatment modalities resolve that underlying issue to the best of their ability. Our services range from Inpatient detoxification all the way to Outpatient therapy, allowing us to meet the client where they are at!
ABOUT EVOLUTIONS TREATMENT CENTER
Located in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Evolutions Treatment Center is an independently owned and operated, luxury rehab center for adults struggling with drug and alcohol addiction and and co-occurring mental health disorders. Day and evening intensive outpatient treatment is available as well as a 30-day residential program. Although Evolutions does not offer detox services on-site, it does partner with and refer clients to nearby providers.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Following physical and psychological evaluations, each client receives recommendations for a personalized plan of treatment. The facility’s website emphasizes the importance of quality sleep for all clients throughout recovery.
Available individual and group psychotherapeutic and holistic treatment practices include dialectical behavior, family, equine and canine, art, and medication-assisted therapies. Spiritual counseling, meditation, nutritional counseling, yoga, tai chi, acupuncture, massage therapy, and physical fitness training are also offered. Evolutions does not directly incorporate a 12-step program, but clients are encouraged to pursue a 12-step approach if desired.
For clients who have received a dual diagnosis of addiction and a co-occurring mental health disorder such as severe depression and anxiety, Evolutions integrates transcranial magnetic stimulation, a cutting edge technology used to stimulate brain patterns that affect mood.
Upon completion of the primary 30-day residence, clients may choose to attend an additional 30 days or more of intensive outpatient treatment, which involves a minimum of three sessions per week and includes supportive housing for up to a year.
Founded by physicians and clinicians specializing in addiction medicine, psychiatry, and psychology, Evolutions employs doctors, nurses, licensed therapists, and certified drug and alcohol counselors. The facility maintains a staff-to-client ratio of 2:1, according to its website.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The facility operates high-end, comfortable residences accommodating up to 55 clients. Spacious, shared bedrooms include ensuite bathrooms, large televisions, and high quality furniture. A lighted swimming pool, basketball courts, outdoor grilling stations, and a fitness center are all on-site. Along with providing cooking classes, a staff nutritionist helps clients design individualized meal plans that address specific dietary needs such as kosher foods and preparation.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
At the time of this writing, Best-rehabs.com has received survey responses from 10 former clients, and general feedback from an additional six. With a few moderate exceptions, all 10 alumni who rated additional survey metrics offered high four- and five-star ratings for each category, such as exercise and leisure provisions, holistic treatment offerings, the level of family participation in treatment, the staff’s level of training and experience, the quality of treatment for co-occurring disorders, and the various counseling options available.
In otherwise positive reviews, a few areas for improvement were noted, including poor communication between residential and treatment staff and the need for more one-on-one time with counselors. Commonly cited strengths included personalized treatment, the program’s small population, and the overall quality of accommodations. Nearly all characterized the staff as caring and the environment as supportive.
Secondary review sites Yelp and Google also had overwhelmingly positive feedback. Fifteen Yelp reviews submitted over a nine-month period all included ratings of four or five out of five stars except one. Many posts had received written responses from a facility staff member. The failure of accommodations to meet the quality promised was one complaint; another was the reviewer’s limited access to a personal therapist. The 44 Google reviewers all offered four and five-star ratings.
Positive reviews described the program as life-changing and mentioned an expert and diverse treatment team. One alum wrote: “I appreciate the follow up Alumni calls.”
About a third of Google reviewers mentioned previous attempts at rehab and one had returned to Evolutions. Again, many complimented the staff and accommodations.
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
The sole loved one polled by Best-rehabs.com agreed with alumni review trends, rating all features either four or five stars and complimenting the experienced staff, individualized treatment, and “clean and comfortable” facility.
WHAT STAFF SAY
In keeping with other sources of feedback, the one staff member who responded to a Best-rehabs.com survey rated all metrics measured four or five stars except the centrality of 12-step and faith-based practices to the program.
