Principles Recovery 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
Areas of Specialization
Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

ABOUT PRINCIPLES RECOVERY CENTER
Principles Recovery Center is a family-owned and -operated addiction rehab facility that provides services out of three South Florida locations. The Davie facility, located about 10 miles west of Fort Lauderdale, offers partial hospitalization programming (PHP) along with supportive housing for men and women struggling with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.
A continuum of care is available through intensive and standard outpatient services and aftercare services. Although Principles Recovery Center does not provide on-site detoxification services, clients can be referred to another facility specially selected by Principles prior to more in-depth treatment. Some services are available in Spanish.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The PHP at Principles Recovery Center is focused on relapse prevention, while intensive outpatient programming (IOP) emphasizes transition to life in recovery after treatment. PHP clients participate in 25 hours of treatment each weak, including one-on-one counseling and group therapy sessions, and typically stay at the center throughout the day. IOP care is offered in the morning and at night.
Programming introduces 12-step concepts offered through Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous as well as more explicitly faith-based groups. Meditation, yoga, fishing, and other fitness activities also facilitate recovery.
Among the modalities used at this facility are education about addiction, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral therapy. Individuals undergoing dual diagnosis treatment also receive medication management services. Family and positive social support group members are encouraged to participate in their loved ones' recovery process; weekly family therapy sessions are available.
The center offers aftercare in the form of vocational training workshops, job placement services, and housing assistance for alumni.
According to information provided to Rehabs.com by this facility, staff members each posses 20 years of experience in treating addiction. Principle Recovery Center employs a team of psychiatrists, master's level counselors, social workers, and registered nurses and maintains a staff-to-client ratio of 1:3. The facility's website indicates that most staff members are in recovery themselves.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
During PHP treatment, clients may reside at Saving Grace House, the program's housing facility. While emphasizing seclusion and an escape from a client's everyday surroundings, the facility's website describes its setting in comfortable, but not luxurious terms, striving to provide a realistic perspective on recovery. Accommodating up to 20 clients at a time, Saving Grace House offers a homelike, therapeutic environment with upscale furnishings, pleasant décor, spacious common areas, private bedrooms, and full kitchens. The facility's website features photographs of a swimming pool and a variety of South Florida activities, including chartered fishing trips. Residents also have access to a full gym twice per week.
