Sunspire Health Recovery Road Philosophy

Our goal at Sunspire Health Recovery Road is to offer treatment for adult men suffering with substance use and co-occurring mental health or behavioral disorders. We provide the highest level of clinical care based on abstinence, evidence and holistic-based treatment methods, catering treatment plans to each individual according to their medical, psychological, and personal needs. We respect the spiritual or religious practices of patients as part of the recovery process and offer access to a vibrant and diverse local recovery community. Our team of Board Certified addiction treatment specialists have years of experience working to heal patients from all backgrounds and circumstances, providing them with the necessary tools to lead a successful life in recovery from addiction.

Areas of Specialization

  • Male-Specific Treatment
    Because Recovery Road is a male-only facility, the treatment is focused on the unique issues that face men in addiction and recovery. A gender-specific treatment facility can promote a safe environment for patients who may find it easier to open up to and bond with their peers who face similar struggles during addiction. Clinical staff is experienced in treating men and catering to their recovery requirements.

  • Internet and Gaming Addiction
    Sunspire Health Recovery Road sees many patients with internet and video game addiction and is able to treat patients suffering with these co-occurring process disorders.

Facility Highlights

Individualized Treatment Plans

At every Sunspire Health facility patients will receive treatment that is individualized to their unique needs and diverse lifestyles. Ongoing assessments allow the treatment to adapt and evolve as the patient progresses.

Evidence-Based Treatment

Sunspire Health utilizes evidence-based treatment methods, meaning that the treatment modalities and therapies are based on clinical evidence and proven success in guiding patients to heal and recover. Patients who would benefit from Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) will receive medications that are proven to aid patients in achieving sobriety.

Whole-Patient Approach

In addition to individual and group therapies that are based in psychotherapy methods like CBT and DBT, patients will learn to apply new coping skills through experiential therapies like meditative hikes, yoga, fitness programs, nutrition education, and recreation activities that show patients how to find hope and how to prosper in recovery.

Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I felt that it was as positive as I could have hoped for. Communication between staff is improving and is likely difficult. This issue has been addressed. As an addict, I felt it was important to refrain expecting too much as that was a behavior I had during active addiction. Expecting that everyone is human and tries their best to help will ensure that the true potential o this program will shine through. It was a life changing experience and I would recommend this facility to anyone who needed treatment.

This facility is amazing. While it may look similar to other facilities in South Florida it is not, the staff here is a one of a kind mix of experience, passion and genius. While success is mostly determined by a patients willingness to maintain the tools and utilize the resources set up after discharge, If you are serious you will be provided everything need to have a successful recovery.

The staff was attentive, loving and very supportive during the recovery process. Could have multitude of rooms instead of one main group room to mix it up I attended Recovery Road in the past and slipped up after returning home and avoiding aftercare recommendations. When I realized I needed help I knew the only place I wanted to go was right back to Recovery Road, They are like family to me and welcomed me back without judgement.

This place was a waste of time. They claim to have the best interest for the guest but once you leave, there is not further "support". My husband relapsed within a week. If you are going to get help, be sure to do your shopping. We were placed here without knowing any real details. He needed immediate help and thought this was going to offer it to him. Sure, while he was there, with the therapy and trips to the beach but all of that didn't help him when he got out into the real world.
