Evolutions Treatment Center

Evolutions Treatment Center Fort Lauderdale Florida

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.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

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.[1]

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.”[2]

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.

FINANCING

Evolutions accepts most insurance coverage plans including PPOs and HMOs. Medicaid and Medicare are not accepted.

  • A year ago today I walked into Evolutions, sick and tired of being sick and tired. I left after 56 days feeling confident I could stay clean and sober 1 day at a time. Today is my anniversary day and I am forever grateful to the people at Evolutions they held me up when I was unable to do so. They offered numerous approaches to healing. The meditation, for the first time, to be quite, breath and let go. I felt more comfortable seeing an outside doctor, the time spend on physical damage caused by my additions left much to be desired.

  • I can honestly say I am sober today!!! I am so grateful to the family at Evolutions! Unfortunately I started at another treatment center that was just so so horrible. So I can't stress enough how important it is to talk to the right people for your recovery. They will help guide you in the right direction and the road to your recovery. Evolutions is a great place to start over to go back and hit the reset button of life. Evolutions taught me how to change my way of thinking which resulted in me changing my ways in life. Again I am so grateful for EVERYONE at Evolutions and I thank you ALL!!! A special shout-out to the staff for the many many many phone calls they accepted during Hurricane Irma to get me out of a horrible Treatment Center and into the right one, Evolutions!!!

  • Clinial, techs, psychological testing, Equine therapy clean and operating facility were all strengths. A downfall was that we need 1 day off from treatment I've been to treatment in the past, it was not nearly the experience I had with Evolutions. The staff is qualified and show that they really care.

  • Strengths include: 1. Therapy staff 2. Staff members 3. Atmosphere-nurturing, carring 4. Accommodations-clean, comfortable 5. Lots to do-but also downtime Weaknesses: Shopping for food. We do it like cattle... it's a humbling experience... and not that bad. Treatment team is phenomenal. And the staff cares deeply. If you are ready to let them guide the process, as painful as it will be, they will help you gain tools to start your recovery process.

    The staff is loving, caring and care deeply about each client. The staff always males sure that they go out of their way to meet each client's needs and sometimes the clients don't appreciate it. We are not only co-workers we treat each other like family. Which makes the clients feel like they are apart of our big living family.

  • Excellent staff and living quarters. The clinical team is second to none. The therapy is of the highest quality. Truly a life-saving organization. Few weaknesses. More one-one time with your assigned therapist would be beneficial. I can't say enough about Evolutions Treatment Center. It was a life-saving, life-changing experience for me. I would highly recommend the facility to anyone who needs treatment or has a friend or family member who needs treatment.

  • When I was there the staff was excellent I liked the fact that the staff complemented each other well so they were a cohesive unit in that sense. I can't really think of anything because I honestly had such a great overall experience I believe that Evolutions is a step above the rest because they are an open rehab so you are not completely closed off from the real world. This a very well balanced treatment center that sets you up for success and I also love the fact that you can tell that the staff members really care.

  • I think most of all the loving atmosphere is what made this place special for me. The therapists and clinical team are amazing too. My treatment felt very individualized compared to the other places I've been. It's nice that it's a smaller population too. I never felt ignored or overwhelmed. Maybe they could use a third van. I really liked how nice the facilities were. It reminded me of a south Beach hotel. It was nice too that we choose which group we wanted to go to throughout the day. They accepted my PPO insurance so I only had to pay my small deductible for 60 days of treatment. This place saved my life...I really believe that. They go so far above and beyond for everyone, I really felt loved.
