Origins of Hope

Origins of Hope Atlantis Florida

Origins of Hope recognizes that women face different challenges in recovery than men. The alcohol and drug rehab provides gender-specific addiction treatment designed to address these important differences and give clients a nurturing and empowering treatment environment. The facility’s holistic approach addresses the physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and sociopolitical aspects of addiction, and gives clients the techniques and tools to help them stay sober for life.


Located in Palm Beach County’s city of Atlantis Fla., Origins of Hope provides treatment for women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. Programs on offer include residential treatment, outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), and transitional living. Detox is not available on-site.


Origins of Hope’s interdisciplinary program is grounded in 12-step principles and includes up to 30 hours of counseling each week. On-site therapists utilize a variety of modalities, including trauma-informed therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI), and relational model therapy. In addition to individual counseling, clients also participate in process groups and family therapy sessions. Psychiatric services are available to all clients, and staff may make referrals for medical testing and treatment.

The center rounds out its programming with alternative therapies, like equine-assisted therapy, and holistic services, including acupuncture, yoga, reiki, and meditation. Recreational activities provide opportunities for physical exercise and socialization.


According to its website, the center offers a 2:7 staff-to-client ratio. The treatment team includes licensed medical professionals, psychiatrists, licensed or certified addiction counselors, nutritionists, fitness experts, and other wellness professionals.


The center’s 10-bed residential facility – a cluster of fully-furnished cottages – offers clients homelike accommodations and amenities. Residents sleep in twin beds in cheerfully decorated bedrooms that they share with one other client. The cottages surround a landscaped courtyard and a heated, salt water swimming pool. While not in counseling sessions, clients may use the on-site fitness center and engage in recreational activities including gardening, swimming, beach outings, and library visits.

  • My daughter was a client and she felt that two women in particular and the entire staff were wonderfully caring and nurturing. We could not have been more pleased with the professionalism at Origins of Hope. Our entire family can recommend this facility without hesitation.
    I thought I had my alcohol addiction under "control". After all, I was still working, my family still talked to friends didn't know...I managed it well. In reality, I never did have any control..the alcohol was the controller. I was isolating myself, planning my life around my drinking. That's all I and drink. I was fooling myself.. no one else. I was ashamed, embarrassed and disappointed in myself. I put those feelings aside and decided I needed help. I needed to understand this addiction. I needed to know how to manage my by day....not drink by drink. I wanted to think clearly, sleep well and feel good about myself. I found my start with Origins of Hope. A place where I did not feel punished. A place where I felt cared for, trusted and respected. A place of learning...step by by day. A place for women. A place of hope. Origins of Hope...if you truly want sobriety,and you are a woman of any age, this is THE place to begin your path. I thank all who work there...from the owners to the therapists and all others involved, for my continued sobriety.

  • Beautiful facility with dedicated staff who truly care about the success of their clients.
    What an absolutely amazing experience!! The accomadations are beautiful, warm & comforting. The salt water pool & native Florida landscaping iare way above & beyond my wildest expectations. More importantly, everyone affiated with Origins of Hope is kind, caring & truly make all guests feel welcome & safe. Therapy is individualized Every need & reasonable want was promptly attended to. I came in there with self loathing, fear, a broken spirit & no hope. Wow!! My life was transformed and my spirit renewed! Origins of Hope does live up to it's name. My hope for a new life began there. After my stay was completed they went out of their way to provide follow up outpatient treatment and help with all arrangements for halfway housing to transition back to independent living. Their success rate for those serious about recovery must be phenomenal because they definitely supply every opportunity to succeed. I HIGHLY recommend this place!!!!

    When I arrived at this facility I was a broken, tired, lost and spiritually bankrupted women! Origins of Hope and staff gave me so many tools to cope with the following areas: relapse prevention, dealing with triggers, setting healthy boundaries , self care, anxiety issues, depression , mindfulness , forming healthy relationships, parenting skills and so much more!! They also encouraged me on a daily basis to feel my feelings that I had stuffed for many years and once I did that and got honest with myself the healing process started and so did the freedom!! Along with the changes I have made and am making and not picking up that first drink or drug, I am a whole new person and love myself today, Origins of Hope had faith in me until I learned to have it myself ! They saved my life!!! The staff truly care about the well being of their patients and provide the best therapy and groups with many coping skills before completing treatment,
