The Refuge, a Healing Pl is a 30 day to one year extended addiction treatment program that specializes in PTSD, Trauma, Substance Abuse and Process Addictions located in central Florida. When The Refuge opened it was one of the few addiction treatment programs that specialized in PTSD/Trauma, process addictions and substance abuse. The Refuge allowed clients that were not only suffering from substance abuse and trauma/PTSD to admit, but also the clients that were struggling with staying sober because of underlying issues.
The Refuge believes that chemical dependency, trauma/PTSD, mood disorders and process addictions are treatable illnesses and that recovery and remission can occur with proper treatment. The focus of the program is on physical, spiritual, and emotional healing through client centered care using a combination of addiction treatment cognitive behavioral therapy, 12 step recovery and holistic/experiential modalities and approaches. The use of education, group and individual counseling, behavior management and peer support are ways to introduce and reinforce abstinence and move the patient into a productive lifestyle with ongoing involvement in recovery. This is accomplished through the collaborative efforts of a highly competent and motivated multidisciplinary staff.
