Recovery Keys Philosophy
Recovery Keys is one of Northeast Florida’s leading providers of comprehensive alcohol, drug and opioid addiction treatment and recovery programs with offices in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Our caring and experienced team of board certified physicians, licensed counselors and therapists are dedicated to helping individuals struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders discover how to live a great life in health, balance and sobriety.
Recovery Keys recognizes addiction as a disease, not a moral failing. We take an evidence-based, holistic approach to assessment, treatment and aftercare. Our mission is to provide every individual with the support needed to change unhealthy perceptions and behaviors, and gain the confidence and skills needed to maintain their recovery in the long-term.
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.
Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
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.

ABOUT RECOVERY KEYS
Recovery Keys, located in Jacksonville, Fla. offers outpatient, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), and a partial hospitalization program for adults struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The center operates two separate locations in Jacksonville and Saint Augustine, with outpatient detox (including Suboxone for opiate withdrawal) and medication management available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Prior to entering the Jacksonville program, all clients undergo a comprehensive evaluation.

The program typically lasts four weeks. For intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), clients meet for about 10 hours per week for at least eight weeks.
All groups are 12-step based, abstinence-centered, and include individual, group, and family therapy, along with medication management if needed. Recovery Keys also offers holistic activities such as mindfulness, meditation, biofeedback, self-hypnosis, and yoga.
