The Refuge, A Healing Place is a 30 day to one year extended care addiction treatment program that specializes in PTSD, Trauma, Substance Abuse, and Process Addictions located in central Florida. 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 services. 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.
