Editorial Review
Jude Reitman Reviews Contributor

Lucida’s spectacular location—just steps from the Intracoastal Waterway near Lantana in Palm Beach County, Florida—and a resort ambiance that includes gated, marina-view townhouse accommodations, draw a wealthy international clientele, who receive personalized, culturally sensitive attention. One of the nation’s only bilingual (English/Spanish) substance abuse and mental health treatment programs, Lucida also has the capacity to treat patients in Italian, Portuguese, German and French.

Individualized treatment is conducted by a team of board-certified psychiatrists, masters and doctoral level therapists, and a qualified case manager. Practitioner to patient ratio in this adult-only (21+), 12-bed facility is 1:3. Clients participate in two private sessions weekly, and group sessions and various holistic therapies are available throughout the day. Treatment is based on the BRENDA approach, a course that combines psychosocial and pharmacotherapy specifically to address alcohol and substance abuse disorders. Lucida also operates a mood disorder program specifically for women, incorporating a holistic nutrition curriculum to treat depression, anxiety, trauma, intimacy and relationship issues.

There are no chores at Lucida, only a mandate to focus completely on recovery. One alumni commented to “I felt very comfortable and safe, allowing me to reflect on myself and my issue. Lucida and their 12 step program…saved my life. Today I am clean happy back at work and living a fuller life than ever before.”

Such high-level attention and treatment costs, of course: $33,000 per month for a shared townhouse, and $48,000 per month for a private room, with no minimum stay. And considering the luxurious accommodations and abundant supplemental activities—an off-site “Dolphin Experience,” sailing, equine therapy, yoga, acupuncture, massage and even rope courses—why would those who can buy in ever want to leave?'s Review Process
