Lucida Treatment Center – Addiction Program Philosophy
Our dual disorder program is designed for men and women who are suffering from addictions and co-occurring mental health issues. This program offers highly individualized treatment, a family program and expert psychiatric care in a private, luxurious setting. Our treatment team addresses both substance abuse and mental health issues at the same time, beginning with an individualized psychiatric and biopsychosocial assessment. We’ve covered all of the details of your stay, from our personal chef and housekeeping service to luxury accommodations and stunning Intracoastal views, so that you can commit fully to your recovery.
Areas of Specialization
While at Lucida Treatment Center, clients healing from addiction and mental health disorders have the opportunity to receive neurofeedback sessions. Lucida uses BrainPaint®, which is a computerized neurofeedback system. It is also a noninvasive, organic process that is scientifically proven to help to improve mood, confidence, performance and memory.
We will teach you the skills necessary to take what you have learned during your stay at Lucida and apply these principles to life outside treatment. We incorporate family support, relapse prevention, cultural outings, fitness, spiritual support, proper nutrition and a comprehensive continuing care plan to prepare you for a successful re-integration back home.
12-Step and Non 12-Step Options
While 12-Step recovery appeals to some, others haven’t achieved lasting recovery with traditional programs or prefer an alternative approach. That’s why Lucida offers abstinence-based alternatives like SMART Recovery® as well as 12-Step support. We make every option available so that if one approach doesn't resonate with you, we’ll try others until we find what works for you.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment
Our treatment team addresses both substance abuse and mental health issues at the same time, beginning with an individualized psychiatric and biopsychosocial assessment. During your stay, you will have daily opportunities to practice real-world skills by grocery shopping, budgeting, preparing meals and maintaining your living space. You’ll also have access to a wide range of evidence-based and alternative therapies, including equine therapy, yoga and tai chi, and neurofeedback.
