At Waters Edge Recovery, each guest is treated as an individual, with a customized treatment plan designed around the current needs and recovery lifestyle that each guest has chosen. There is a strong focus toward the future and in finding a genuine, personal purpose for their lives. Emphasis is placed on respect and compassion towards self and others and on the innate strengths and aspirations each of our guests possess and can be helped to be guided by.
Our clients begin their treatment journey in our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) guided by licensed medical and clinical staff and trained professionals. Once a guest has completed the first phase, they are introduced to our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) where they gain the life skills necessary for continued success and sobriety.
We also offer additional resources such as intervention, family care & guidance, sober living and integrative aftercare & case management. Nestled alongside the St. Lucie River, Waters Edge promotes a holistic approach to recovery, incorporating nutritional counseling, exercise, art and music therapy, meditation and recreational activities.
Waters Edge Recovery is a JCAHO accredited facility. The Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission is an accreditation that is nationally recognized as the premier symbol of quality for addiction treatment. This accreditation reflects our commitment to meeting the highest performance standards for patient treatment and care. The Joint Commission’s behavioral health care standards are developed in consultation with health care experts and providers, quality improvement measurement experts, and individuals and their families. The standards are informed by scientific literature and expert consensus to help organizations measure, assess and improve performance.
Our inpatient and outpatient treatment efforts are targeted to address specific needs, with specialized offerings that focus on:
• Drug and Alcohol Abuse
• Opioid Addiction
• Addiction to Pain Medication
• Family Relations
• Understanding the Brain Chemistry of Addiction
• Progression of the Disease of Addiction
• Introduction To the Twelve Steps
• Stages of Change
• Focus On Co-Occurring Disorders and the Effects On Addiction and Recovery
Clients who choose to take part in our intensive outpatient program continue the important work they have started while in PHP, but do so while actively engaged in a lifestyle of real recovery. This is characterized by employment, training and community service and involvement. They enjoy support from our staff day and night whenever they need to talk, and also take part in nine hours of group activities and workshops each week. They also benefit from regular one to one therapy and can choose to live in our safe, drug-and-alcohol-free supported housing.
Many different areas and topics are covered in the IOP, which include:
Relapse Prevention Skills
• How to Manage Urges and Cravings
• Healthy Life Skills
• Employment Counseling to include Resume Building Classes and Interview Skills Courses
• Continuing Education Support & Guidance
Depending on your needs, you may be referred to additional comprehensive mental health treatment, or training in how to increase healthy life skills, or employment counseling.
However, the support and involvement we offer certainly does not end there. Waters Edge hopes that our graduates will then stay closely in touch with us and enjoy the many benefits of our strong Alumni program, in cooperation with other sources of care and support across the nation.
