Ambrosia Treatment Partners Philosophy

You don't have to suffer alone.

If drugs or alcohol are affecting you or someone you love, now is the time to get answers and take action. Addiction won’t magically go away. (You already know that).

The good news is that every day people get and stay sober here! Anyone struggling can live a sober, fulfilling life – there are no exceptions. It’s about becoming stronger than your strongest excuses.

Areas of Specialization

  • Client & Family Support Groups
    Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

  • Family Program
    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

ABOUT AMBROSIA TREATMENT PARTNERS

Ambrosia Treatment Partners is a network of drug and alcohol treatment centers throughout California and Florida. Located just minutes from the beach in Jacksonville, Fla., Ambrosia Treatment Partners offers evidence-based treatment for young adults struggling with drug and/or alcohol dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders.

As an organization, Ambrosia provides a full continuum of care, from long-term residential treatment to aftercare. This center is one of 352 (52.7 percent) private for-profit facilities in the state of Florida.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The treatment process at Ambrosia of Jacksonville begins with a clinically-driven assessment that takes up to 15 minutes to complete. Depending on their needs, young adults may be recommended for either inpatient or outpatient treatment. though many begin with a brief period of detoxification of three to 10 days prior to joining others. Different medications may be used at this point to counter the varying withdrawal effects of alcohol and opiates.

Programming is trauma-informed, holistic, and individualized, encouraging clients to find and make use of what works best for them. Residents have opportunity for eye movement and desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), to learn skills for coping with anxiety, as well as solutions for preventing relapse when things get rough. Attendance and participation are expected in both group therapy and one-on-one counseling. Other components to residential care include 12-step meetings, yoga and mindfulness, and family sessions that address issues of communication, trust, anger, and co-dependency.

Beyond their time spent in groups, meetings, and classes, residents are afforded down time in which they can practice yoga, receive a therapeutic massage, exercise, or simply read or relax. Occasional outings to the beach and bowling alley create avenues for fellowship and trust-building amongst clients.

Length of stay in residential treatment ranges widely from two weeks to six months, based on specific needs and progress made during treatment. The organization also offers clients opportunity to solidify their gains made via three to 12 months of intensive outpatient (IOP) care.

When I came in I didn't want to be here and I didn't think that I could learn anything new. However, I did learn a new way to look at things and realize that I need to be more open-minded which helps me in my recovery as well. The staff were all good, they show that they care and were there to help with whatever you needed. I would recommend Ambrosia because of the way they do groups, they do things different than most places. It gives you the opportunity to see things in a new way, it was a good program.

The staff is very helpful and very supporting! They really gave me a lot of support and helped me build my self-esteem. I came in really run down and hating myself, and I don't feel like that anymore. I was able to talk to them and vent about my personal problems and they were there to listen. I felt comfortable talking to them and my experience was really good.
