Solutions Recovery Center Philosophy

Solutions Recovery Center recognizes alcoholism and drug addiction as a primary disease. The disease affects brain-functioning and physiology, mental health, social, and behavioral functioning and the totality of personal characteristics. The illness if left untreated is a chronic, progressive, and fatal illness. The illness is pervasive and affects not only the individual, but has an impact on all who interact with them. We believe each individual has the right to be treated with respect and dignity as they are valued by society. We believe each individual has the right to treatment, the most appropriate level of treatment, regardless of creed, gender, race, sexual orientation, age, or origin and they have the inherent potential for change and growth.

Areas of Specialization

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

Editorial Review

Review by Contributors


Located in sunny Delray Beach, Fla., Solutions Recovery Center offers luxury residential and outpatient treatment for men struggling with addiction. Co-occurring mental health disorders are addressed as well. Detoxification services are not offered on-site, though the facility will refer clients in need of detox to an appropriate location.


The residential program offers three lengths of stay: 30, 60, or 90 days. Treatment takes what the facility calls a “triangle approach” to recovery - each client works with a primary therapist, a primary counselor, and addictions facilitators.

According to the facility’s website, Solutions focuses on highly individualized treatment and support. Clients participate in four individual counseling sessions per week, along with 12-step meetings, daily group support meetings and group therapy sessions. Family therapy is also available. A non-denominational, faith-based recovery track, guided by the facility’s chaplain in cooperation with a Buddhist monk, is also available.

two-phase outpatient program is offered as a step-down from residential treatment.

Solution recovery Center’s Break Free Plan, which is the facility’s comprehensive, in-depth aftercare planning is another notable aspect of treatment. Through this opt-in service, a case manager goes with the client back home to provide support to the family, find an aftercare mentor, and make referrals to an aftercare therapist in the community.


The clinical director is a licensed psychologist and oversees a staff of master’s-level therapists and certified addiction counselors. The facility reports a staff-to-client ratio of 1:1.


The 3,000 to 5,000 square-foot residential facilities are high-end and homelike, 
designed with upscale furnishings and comfortable common living areas. There are 24 beds total, some of which are private rooms. The recovery center boasts a meditation garden, swimming pool, and soothing group rooms.

Alongside treatment, clients enjoy a range of recreational and leisure outings, which include beach trips, golf, fishing, snorkeling, park outings, cookouts, museum and gallery tours, and attendance at local community events. Use of personal cell phones and computers is allowed in the facility once a client has been deemed “stable.”


All five alumni reviews to date are positive, with effective treatment and individualized care receiving praise. One anonymous alum gave the facility scores of four or five out of five stars across the board, including perfect scores for its treatment effectiveness, its meals and nutrition, its holistic offerings, its connectivity, and its staff’s level of training and experience, as well as a perfect overall rating. He wrote: “Great staff , and great program choices for your own recovery. A good mix of activities.” Although he did note that “at times they had issues with communication.”


The one loved one polled to date by gave positive feedback. J.J. gave four- and five-star ratings for treatment effectiveness, staff support, family involvement, accommodations, and availability of leisure activities. He cited the “great amenities” as a strength of the facility.


One former staff member, Alan, was more critical of Solutions Recovery Center. Although, on a survey on, he gave an above average rating for his job satisfaction and for the overall quality of patient treatment, he was less than impressed with the staff itself. Alan commented: “Worked there for 13 months. Started hiring inexperienced people. [Counselors] are not certified.”


There's currently no specific information available on pricing via the facility's website, however, the facility states that it accepts many types of insurance, including: Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, United Health One, Aetna, Humana, Careplus, Cigna, Freedom Health, and United American Insurance Company

This facility saved my life. I have my family back in my life. I am just over 2 years clean/sober. I am grateful to the very knowledgeable and compassionate staff for their dedication. If you are looking for a great facility to re-start your life, and educate you - this one is perfect. The most important advice I can give is to stick to the treatment plan after you leave the facility, and take suggestions from those in long term recovery. I had to learn the hard way, until I found this facility. I always thought I could do it on my own or my way - this only lead to more failure and heartache for my family. Great place - very supportive even after I finished the program.

Great staff , and great program choices for your own recovery. A good mix of activities. As a new company at the time they had issues with communication at times. However, I believe that the program works anyway. Well after 14 years clean I found myself sick again. Couldn't have found a better place to get help for my ills. If it wasn't for the staff and whole package of treatment options offered it would have been different. Excellent service provider
