Overview of our Residential Treatment Program

Our residential treatment program offers hope, healing, and a healthy lifestyle for all residents. Located in beautiful Deerfield Beach, Lifeskills South Florida provides a secure and nurturing atmosphere for balanced recovery and healing. Residential treatment program clients live in fully furnished townhomes that are professionally staffed 24 hours a day. This realistic, home-like setting allows residents to adapt their new coping skills within the local community and to daily routines while taking part in the therapeutic process. The goal of Lifeskills is to help residents successfully transition back into their homes, family lives, and careers with newfound self-esteem, direction, and control.

Lifeskills South Florida offers comprehensive clinical pathways that focus on long-term recovery for the individual and the family. Within our residential treatment program and continuum of care, clients access the clinical pathway that aligns to their specific need.

Treat all with dignity and respect

As part of our mission, we believe that individuals can change with proper therapeutic support. At Lifeskills, we offer compassionate care that incorporates traditional, integrative, and expressive therapies that give our clients the tools they need to live a life of freedom from their disorder.

Individual intrinsic ability for self-healing

Each resident is expected to work toward their treatment goals to develop self-awareness, self-reliance, and self-monitoring skills. Also, residents aim to establish a balanced home and work life and a social support network within the community.
