ABOUT WATERS EDGE RECOVERY

As its name suggests, Waters Edge Recovery is situated on the waterfront alongside the St. Lucie River in Stuart, FL.

Treatment options include a partial hospitalization program (PHP) and an intensive outpatient program (IOP), along with sober living.

The facility offers medically-assisted detox on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment is tailored to each client’s needs, although a typical rehab program lasts 28 to 45 days. During this time, clients can learn about the nature of addiction, develop their spirituality, or be introduced to the 12-Steps. All clients participate individual, group, and family counseling.

Waters Edge promotes a holistic approach to recovery. Treatment therefore incorporates yoga, exercise, art and music therapy, meditation, and recreational activities including basketball and table tennis.

Clients in the IOP program take part in nine hours of group activities, workshops, and one-on-one counseling each week and may live in Water Edge’s housing if they choose. Topics covered include relapse prevention skills, how to manage urges and cravings, and others. The program encourages continued employment and community service.

There are also gender-specific programs for men, women, and young men, and specialized programs for business executives, first responders, healthcare workers, seniors, and those struggling with chronic relapse.

Reviews about Waters Edge Recovery

Oh look a holiday camp for the rich. Paying big Money does not help you any more than a recover house does. Money and fancy resorts cant cure you. Time and willingness does. so if you think a high end center is the answer to your addiction it is a waste for good money
Both me and my cousin went to Waters Edge. I love this place. They make you feel like you are at home. Everyone really cared about what they were doing.

  • Level of care is excellent. I have been to many facilities in the past and never received the individual treatment that was given here at WER. From the techs to the owner everyone was welcoming and went above and beyond what I had experienced at other places.

  • Staff and treatments were a strength. Cost of treatment was a weakness. This facility was an extremely serene place to help my loved one recover from addiction. There was enough stimulus to keep him entertained and engaged but not too much to overwhelm and push him back into his addiction. The staff was very attentive and helpful to non-patient family members.

  • The facility has many strengths but my personal favorite was the after care. They continued to be available to me in any way I may have needed after I graduated the inpatient program to ensure my continued success! The facility offered me tons of information about what comes after inpatient so I was able to make the next best choice for my after care.

  • Offers individualized treatment plans that cater to the specific needs of the client and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. I have been to a few different treatment centers before and never got the care and in depth treatment like did at Waters Edge Recovery. The staff really care about the clients and they show you how to have fun in recovery. Waters Edge Recovery saved my life!

  • I get to witness on a daily basis the staff at this facility go ABOVE and BEYOND for every client. This is a rarity now a days, but it exists here. I have been to 15 treatment centers, and have worked for 3 different treatment centers. WER is so much more then a rehab. It is a team of people, a family, that is committed to helping others. This has been my experience.
    The team at Waters Edge Recovery show compassion and kindness for each and every client. Having been an unpaid volunteer for this organisation I am continually impressed with how the client's welfare and recovery come first, and how often the staff make sacrifices into their own time. Working here does feel like a family.

  • Waters Edge Recovery helped truly helped me get my life back- they were able to help save me from myself. Before coming here I could barely put 5 minutes together without picking up a drink or a drug. Now I've been sober for over a year thanks to them and their unconditional love and support.

    Amazing place. They treat you like you are special and believe in you even when everyone else in your life stop caring. i found peace there and so much more
    I loved this facility. I've been to many and this was the only treatment center that has a 56 day program. The counselors are amazing and very skilled in addiction. I not only learned about my addiction but I learned about myself and how to overcome it. I found the person I truly am. I would recommend this treatment center to anyone that is suffering from drugs or alcohol or even mental illnesses. The group therapy, residency and extra curricular activities are awesome. However, the residency is too far from the center where group is held.
    First I want to start by saying that Waters Edge Recovery saved my life. When I was in my darkest hour of need, they were there for me. Waters Edge Recovery has shown me how to have a better quality of life. If I had not gone through the program I would not be the father and husband I am today. Thank you for showing me how to live!
