Treatment Center Philosophy

At Principles Recovery Center we believe in a small community that allows for maximum 1 on 1 clinician time and the most exposure to therapy throughout your time with us. We take pride in our facility only allowing people who genially want to get clean to be a patient. We believe a facilities pride should be in its clinical success rate rather than just its appearance in photos. Our slogan "It's not what we do, It's who we are" defines our organization as we have been down the same road as you. We are family owned and operated unlike other facilities and we will welcome you or your loved one into our center with open arms. There's rehab and then there's Principles Recovery Center. We put therapy over everything else: Each of our clinicians has over 20+ years experience in the field of substance abuse, out staff to client trio is 1.2:1, our group sizes do not exceed 10 people(average is 5). We accept most insurances as well as Self Pay Opportunities for those without insurance. We ask anyone considering to join our family to please see our Facebook reviews which detail the experiences of our former clients: https://www.facebook.com/PrinciplesRecoveryCenter/reviews?ref=page_internal We also have an after/evening Spanish Program!

Don't go here or send your loved ones here. To start 11 of the Google reviews are written by principles staff and or the owner himself. The housing is a joke and 2 out of the 3 houses are infested with cockroaches to the point they are even actually inside the fridge. I understamd we are in south florida and every house has a few roaches but this place was F'ing infested. When we would mention the cockroaches the owner would ignore us most of the time and even become annoyed. We as residents would have to beg the owner for months to even just buy 20 dollars worth of raid bug bombs to try to kill some of them so it wasnt so infested and eventually begrudgingly he would fork over 20 dollars to purchase them. "Coral House" is even infested by huge rats. I was also bitten by bed bugs when I moved into one of the houses and was told it was all in my head until i took pictures of the bugs that I found and huge quarter sized welts all over my body. The owner even tried to blame me for the bed bugs at first which is impossible because I wasn't being bitten until the first night I moved into his house. Then the owner was to cheap to hire a real exterminator and had his friend come over with heaters to kill them and in the process knocked my brand new 4k tv onto the ground along with my Xbox putting lines through the picture of the tv and breaking the ventilation fan of my Xbox and neither worked right ever again which he would not reimburse me for and told me that the tv must have come like that from the store when I bought it 2 weeks prior lmao . He also would not reimburse me for any of the clothing or bedding I had to dispose of due to the bed bugs or take even half off of my rent for one week (80 dollars) for the inconvenience of being bitten by bed bugs for 2 weeks and being covered in painful welts. His friends bed bug treatment did work however and they were eradicated after a month or so. The a.c. system at all 3 houses breaks on a nearly weekly basis. He then has you guessed it one of his friends come over, more or less put some duct tape on it so it will work for another 5-7 days until it breaks down again during 90 degree weather and are forced to live with no a.c. for days until he has his friend come over and put more duct tape on it again. The therapists at the center are terrible except for one. There is one therapist who is excellent, she is extremely down to earth and I learned a lot from her and her groups it only goes downhill from there though. One other therapist told us one day that another client in our group who wasn't there that day was diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality disorder and was talking about him behind his back to other clients, she then stated and I quote "I can say and do whatever I want because they (The Owners) don't want me to leave Principles".This therapist extremely grumpy and crotchety every single day and seems like she absolutely hates her job and it made me feel extremely uncomfortable almost like I was bothering her for asking her to do her job and be my therapist. I had 1 private session in 5 weeks at the center when you are supposed to have one every week. I was a cash pay client at the center and was curious one day as to what another client had paid for treatment for the same length of time after asking the client their marketing director sat me down and screamed at me and berated me for 30 mins about how much of an ungrateful person I am and literally stated "nobody wants me here" to the point I almost cried.....I was 3 days sober at this point and very stressed out as it was when he was screaming at me about this. Anybody who works in treatment knows that you don't scream and berate somebody in such a vulnerable position about something so petty... that in itself was one of the most unprofessional experiences I have ever experienced at a treatment center in my life and it's actually against the law to enforce clients to not speak about their rates just as it's against the law to stop employees from discussing their pay with each other.

My experience at Principles Recovery Center Wes great. The counselors and techs went above and beyond to assist me in my recovery and in transitioning back into everyday life. The individual attention they give to every client made this difficult journey a lot easier. I just picked up my one year medallion 2 nights ago. I still remain in contact with my counselor and much of the staff there today. I would highly recommend them to anyone truly seeking recovery.

The initial contact and admission of my loved one was effective. We got them into treatment.After that it became clear that principles was a family profit motivated organization. The market supervisor is their son who brow beat my family member for more money. The owners husband owns and runs the half way houses that clients are directed to after treatment. Our experience was that one house that we were directed to was chronically infested withe cockroaches, Our experience was that houses were inadequately supervised .

As a mother of a heroin and polysubstance addict I have lived with and fought for my son's life. Unconditional love would not let me or my husband give up on our child. In the beginning of our fight for his life we were lost, we were uneducated to what was happening and how to help him. We learned very quickly in our state that there was no help with detox only replacement therapy. The multitude of events we were dealing with was suffocating. We were dealing with crimes, police, detectives, probation officers, court rooms, lawyers, DA' s, judges, jail time, visiting hours, a court ordered treatment facility, drug induced psychosis, strangers coming and going from our home at all hours, fighting with our loved one, hurtful words being said, holes punched through walls, broken hearts by ALL who loved him and every time he would scream at me to "leave me the **** a lone!" My response remained the same, "I'm not going anywhere because I love you." Frustration and fear of "That dreaded phone call" was always first and foremost in our minds 24/7. Slowly we began to get educated. It started with realizing that there was no "one" single answer to such a complex disease. After meeting with NAMI, police officers, Dr's, counselors, ER Dr's, more frustration, more road blocks, high cost help, lack of insurance help, we just started talking to anyone who would listen to us. Talking to the local police, state police and staff in the emergency room was a huge step. Our son was young, strong and NOT thinking clearly. Why talk to all these people? We saw too many young people being shot and killed because of erratic behavior. We were not going to allow that to happen to our son. I feel this also helped them see our son, the addict, in a different way. He came from a loving home and he was a great person who was hurting and needed help. As the days, months and years went by we continued to learn more and more about addiction. With help from a family friend we began our journey seeking help from out of state Rehab facilities in Florida. We used a few different facilities over the course of a few years. I believe we all learned something positive from each one. The most important advice I got was, relapse is part of recovery and we had to focus on getting back to recovery and put our focus there and not on the relapse. With hearts breaking we continued to push forward. With lots of prayers, tears and perseverance we refused to give up. From Maine to Florida and many phone calls we kept getting him back into treatment and each time we felt we all learned, grew and experienced something good and not just the bad. Even as we closed in on our last recovery facility we had days and nights of terrible fears. He was removed from a facility for breaking rules, moved to another, he left there refusing to go back.... After work, late that night, when he was angry that he had no place to go I finally agreed to let my husband book him a room with the stipulation that in fact he did have a place to go and he was to go back there in the morning. Principles Recovery was that place. We prayed and they were answered, he went back! He connected with a female counselor who he was able to truly relate to and we watched him grow. Principles is a small facility that has people who truly care about the wellbeing of the addict. To Principles the addict is part of the family. January 4, 2018 will mark 2 years of living a clean and sober life!! We still live one day at a time, however, our sons growth continues through his work with Principles Recovery. Both my husband and I highly recommend trusting Principles with your loved one, and we pray that your loved one will finally be able to see the glimmer of light out of their darkness with the love and help of Principles Recovery! Never stop believing in hope. Signed, a grateful mother, father and family of an addict ❤

I have my son back. I lost him to an overdose in December of 2016. He was revived and agreed to enter his 4th treatment center. I credit Principles Recovery Center with saving my son. He is on the path to recovery and is an active member of the Principles Alumni Community. This is a first rate facility with a genuine, caring Management, clinical staff, to include their technicians. I highly recommend Principles to care for your loved ones.

Principles is an amazing Treatment Center. I have had this one woman as a therapist before and she is amazing. They have a loving staff, all the groups made me really think about the negative actions I was taking. The COO is also an awesome guy. He has helped out thousands of struggling addicts in South Florida. Principles is a place where I would send a loved one and know they are getting top notch Treatment.

Strengths: People, Program, and Family Atmosphere. I can not even express the gratitude I have for Principles Recovery Center, from the staff who genuinely cares and it's evident to the facility itself. This place has given me a whole new perspective on what it means to be in recovery and life in general. The amount of support and help is always there for the taking. This is not a business, this is a place where the staff takes pride in watching us grow and supporting us each step of the way.
