Recovery In Tune Philosophy
We are a family-oriented team of widely experienced individuals in recovery and treatment.
Our journey began in 2015 with a dream of creating a safe and therapeutic environment for people suffering from the life-wrecking disease of addiction, with the opening of Recovery In Tune. We specialize in providing compassionate and highly individualized substance abuse treatment that is evidence-based and outcome-driven. We focus on vastly exceeding the frequently low standards of treatment outcomes in our beloved and beautiful community of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Areas of Specialization
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
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.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.
Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
Outpatient treatment describes all addiction treatment that is not residential. Patients live at home while undergoing rehab.
This place has all the tools necessary for someone to succeed in starting the process of monumental change. Like any situation, it is dependent on willingness and attitude of the client, but RIT places clients in an environment for success with opportunities to mental health help, 12 step program, community, work opportunity, and gym membership. The staff was helpful, understanding, and friendly. Professional at all times, and truly cared for my well-being. The location of the program is also in a desirable place in Ft Lauderdale, making it accessible to any kind of needed attraction, work place, or gym. I had a great experience and would recommend to someone who is ready to start a new attempt of a sober life
Staying at Recovery in Tune and utilizing their services has been an amazing experience. There housing is amazing but their program and staff is absolutely incredible. The staff is a huge reason I am where I am today. They have helped me more than anything, from the therapist to the behavioral techs and all other staffing have motivated me and helped me work through so much.
Recovery In Tune is a fantastic place to be when seeking help with addiction. The staff is absolutely fantastic and willing to help with any situation problem you incur. As one whom has been a client there, the housing and facilities are better then the other places I've seen. This is my first time seeking help and I wouldn't have attended any other place. As a client here, you could reach the owner at anytime possible to be comforting and helping with any needs. I am really grateful for the staff and everyone there to help me through this disease of addiction.
I've been to a lot of treatment centers but this one genuinely care about their clients and go above and beyond to make sure you have the best care possible. All the therapists, employees and even the admission coordinators are great. I would give this place 10 stars if I could.

ABOUT RECOVERY IN TUNE
Located in sunny Florida’s beachfront community of Fort Lauderdale, Recovery In Tune (RIT) provides treatment for indidivduals struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders through a variety of structured outpatient services and sober living facilities for adults.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Treatment is based on the 12-step model of recovery, and the center’s mission is to help its clients achieve “sobriety through inner harmony,” according to its website.
Along with its sober housing, RIT offers several levels of outpatient service for individuals seeking recovery. In the intensive outpatient (IOP) program, clients participate in structured programming sessions while still attending school or work. In the outpatient program, clients attend group and individual counseling once a week, in addition to education and recovery planning.
A specialized mental health IOP is also available for clients whose primary diagnosis is psychiatric, and special programs are tailored specifically for individuals struggling with an addiction to opiates/heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, alcohol, or prescription drugs.
At any level, these programs emphasize the 12-Steps, in addition to trauma recovery therapy and motivational training. The programs include weekly individual counseling, group therapy, family counseling (as needed), substance abuse education, relapse prevention, life skills training, spiritual groups, and non-verbal therapies (including art therapy, music therapy, mindfulness, and yoga). Medical and psychiatric services are provided as needed through consultation or referrals.
Most members of the RIT team are in recovery themselves, and some specialize in treating trauma. The center employs a marriage and family therapist along with a licensed mental health counselor.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The sober living homes can accommodate up to 24 people in gender-specific, semi-private rooms. The home's feature Wi-Fi, phones, flat-screen TVs, and on-site laundry.
