At Principles Recovery Center we believe in a small community that allows for maximum 1 on 1 clinician time and the most exposure to therapy throughout your time with us. We take pride in our facility only allowing people who genially want to get clean to be a patient. We believe a facilities pride should be in its clinical success rate rather than just its appearance in photos.

Our slogan “It’s not what we do, It’s who we are” defines our organization as we have been down the same road as you. We are family owned and operated unlike other facilities and we will welcome you or your loved one into our center with open arms.

ABOUT PRINCIPLES RECOVERY CENTER

Principles Recovery Center is a family-owned and -operated addiction rehab facility that provides services out of three South Florida locations. The Davie facility, located about 10 miles west of Fort Lauderdale, offers partial hospitalization programming (PHP) along with supportive housing for men and women struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.

A continuum of care is available through intensive and standard outpatient services and aftercare services. Although Principles Recovery Center does not provide on-site detoxification services, clients can be referred to another facility specially selected by Principles prior to more in-depth treatment. Some services are available in Spanish.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The PHP at Principles Recovery Center is focused on relapse prevention, while intensive outpatient programming (IOP) emphasizes transition to life in recovery after treatment. PHP clients participate in 25 hours of treatment each weak, including one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions, and typically stay at the center throughout the day. IOP care is offered in the morning and at night.

Programming introduces 12-step concepts offered through Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous as well as more explicitly faith-based groups. Meditation, yoga, fishing, and other fitness activities also facilitate recovery.

Among the modalities used at this facility are education about addiction, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Individuals undergoing dual diagnosis treatment also receive medication management services. Family and positive social support group members are encouraged to participate in their loved ones’ recovery process; weekly family therapy sessions are available.

The center offers aftercare in the form of vocational training workshops, job placement services, and housing assistance for alumni.

  • As a mother of a heroin and polysubstance addict I have lived with and fought for my son's life. Unconditional love would not let me or my husband give up on our child. In the beginning of our fight for his life we were lost, we were uneducated to what was happening and how to help him. We learned very quickly in our state that there was no help with detox only replacement therapy. The multitude of events we were dealing with was suffocating. We were dealing with crimes, police, detectives, probation officers, court rooms, lawyers, DA' s, judges, jail time, visiting hours, a court ordered treatment facility, drug induced psychosis, strangers coming and going from our home at all hours, fighting with our loved one, hurtful words being said, holes punched through walls, broken hearts by ALL who loved him and every time he would scream at me to "leave me the **** a lone!" My response remained the same, "I'm not going anywhere because I love you." Frustration and fear of "That dreaded phone call" was always first and foremost in our minds 24/7. Slowly we began to get educated. It started with realizing that there was no "one" single answer to such a complex disease. After meeting with NAMI, police officers, Dr's, counselors, ER Dr's, more frustration, more road blocks, high cost help, lack of insurance help, we just started talking to anyone who would listen to us. Talking to the local police, state police and staff in the emergency room was a huge step. Our son was young, strong and NOT thinking clearly. Why talk to all these people? We saw too many young people being shot and killed because of erratic behavior. We were not going to allow that to happen to our son. I feel this also helped them see our son, the addict, in a different way. He came from a loving home and he was a great person who was hurting and needed help. As the days, months and years went by we continued to learn more and more about addiction. With help from a family friend we began our journey seeking help from out of state Rehab facilities in Florida. We used a few different facilities over the course of a few years. I believe we all learned something positive from each one. The most important advice I got was, relapse is part of recovery and we had to focus on getting back to recovery and put our focus there and not on the relapse. With hearts breaking we continued to push forward. With lots of prayers, tears and perseverance we refused to give up. From Maine to Florida and many phone calls we kept getting him back into treatment and each time we felt we all learned, grew and experienced something good and not just the bad. Even as we closed in on our last recovery facility we had days and nights of terrible fears. He was removed from a facility for breaking rules, moved to another, he left there refusing to go back.... After work, late that night, when he was angry that he had no place to go I finally agreed to let my husband book him a room with the stipulation that in fact he did have a place to go and he was to go back there in the morning. Principles Recovery was that place. We prayed and they were answered, he went back! He connected with a female counselor who he was able to truly relate to and we watched him grow. Principles is a small facility that has people who truly care about the wellbeing of the addict. To Principles the addict is part of the family. January 4, 2018 will mark 2 years of living a clean and sober life!! We still live one day at a time, however, our sons growth continues through his work with Principles Recovery. Both my husband and I highly recommend trusting Principles with your loved one, and we pray that your loved one will finally be able to see the glimmer of light out of their darkness with the love and help of Principles Recovery! Never stop believing in hope. Signed, a grateful mother, father and family of an addict ❤

    I have my son back. I lost him to an overdose in December of 2016. He was revived and agreed to enter his 4th treatment center. I credit Principles Recovery Center with saving my son. He is on the path to recovery and is an active member of the Principles Alumni Community. This is a first rate facility with a genuine, caring Management, clinical staff, to include their technicians. I highly recommend Principles to care for your loved ones.

  • Principles is an amazing Treatment Center. I have had this one woman as a therapist before and she is amazing. They have a loving staff, all the groups made me really think about the negative actions I was taking. The COO is also an awesome guy. He has helped out thousands of struggling addicts in South Florida. Principles is a place where I would send a loved one and know they are getting top notch Treatment.
