Transformations Drug & Alcohol Treatment Center Philosophy

Transformations Treatment Center offers men and women a safe and comfortable home-like environment for alcohol and drug addiction treatment. All programs at Transformations Treatment Center are client-focused and dedicated to helping individuals build a solid foundation for lifelong sobriety. The comprehensive, compassionate and unique treatment helps build a foundation for a healthy recovery and sober future. All programs have a low ratio of clients to staff from licensed mental health counselors to master-level therapists.

Areas of Specialization

  • 12-Step
    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.

  • Holistic Therapy
    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.

They truly care to this day I still hear from them. They call me back once a month to see how I am.”

Most reviewers did not mention weaknesses, but those that did said that they felt some material was repetitive, there were not yoga or meditation offerings, and there was too much down time.

Transformations saved my life. I recommend this facility to everyone. Best treatment center I've ever had the opportunity to be a patient at. the staff are amazing and everyone genuinely cares about you and your well being. Extremely well taken care of being there

Transformations was the best desicion I have ever made in my life and I have made nothing but bad choices. Transformations literally transformed my life. In am so blessed to have found this place. The staff at the clinical building are outstanding and genuinely care, as do the techs that are around 24/7. Then whennyou leave they don't just forget about you they check on you often and make sure you are doing well and see if there is anything they cam do for you. That is the alumni department. Even though I have finished with them they are still there for me if anything ever happens. I love this place and would highly recommend this to any addict in need. Or eeven if you don't realize or think your a addict or whatever give Transformations a shot. They will change your life.

My daughter received really great care during the 4 months she was in therapy at Transformations (spring of 2017). The therapists were insightful and responsive, and the staff really cared about her. The inpatient and PHP programs are excellent. She is young, and we were concerned about security, but it is a very secure environment. The clients get to do some fun things on the weekends, which is helpful. Transformations is supportive but helps the clients gain independent living skills.

Individual rooms for each person Plenty of space Effective treatment programs Too much down time was a downfall Definitely work with the aftercare planners on sober living. It can save your sobriety and your life

The worst They only care about money. They are a factory of kids facing jail. Don't go here

My adult child is there now. I can't seem to get any answers for patient responsibility for cost after 70% coverage insurance. I want my child's addiction under control, but I can't afford $10,000 or $15,000 a month to pay. I read pretty good reviews, but the bad ones are always about the price....

I am writing this review from my perspective as a mother who sent her child Transformations. I know a lot of parents are out here searching desperately for a good treatment center and rely heavily on these reviews. I sent my 24 year old daughter here back in May 2016, she is still there today, almost five months later. My first phone call to Transformations was answered by a young man. He was calm, willing to listen to all of my concerns and was honest in all of his answers. He was never judgmental of anything I shared with him, nor did he paint a rosy picture or give false hope. We both knew it depended on her. I was at my wit's end when I finally called him to give him my daughter's flight number. In total frustration I told him that I was making her pack the maximum number of bags that the airline would allow, I couldn't stand living with her anymore and she was not going to be allowed to return home. I told him "you can have her!" Without hesitation and in an very matter of fact manner he said, "that's the best thing I've heard all day, ma'am." He saw right through our situation and knew that I needed to let her go and allow her to figure this out for herself. My daughter chose to be on the Christian track while in in-patient, she thrived in that program. Her one-on-one counselor was this one woman and she loved her! She kept in touch when needed but did not over-indulge my "need to know" about everything little thing she was doing. Looking back I can see that she was helping my daughter to set boundaries with me (I admit to being co-dependent and am still a work in progress. God bless all the counselors for dealing with us mothers!). It was frustrating at first but we are both reaping the rewards of it now. My daughter thought that the living arrangements were nice at in-patient, she shared a small apartment with other female clients and was responsible for maintaining the home, grocery shopping and meal planning. This was excellent practice for when she left in-patient treatment. The weekdays were spent at the treatment center (a separate building at a totally different address). The clients are taken to the center for morning meetings, taken back to their apartment where she'd prepare herself lunch and then taken back to the center for afternoon sessions. Every weekend was spent doing planned activities, which she seemed to enjoy. Her only real complaint during the in-patient phase was that there were a lot of clients and it could sometimes feel chaotic and noisy. She tends to like quiet and spending time alone so this may not be a problem for all. She hung in there though, knowing that it was short term. When her time in in-patient was ending they took her on tours of different sober living homes she could live in to continue her treatment at Transformations (see their websites for the different phases of treatment, so far it's spot-on with our experience). She chose a home that is run by a man, this man is an angel walking among us. He is patient, kind, has high expectations of the girls in the house and is not afraid of handing out consequences when needed. My daughter is growing and learning everyday under the care of the Transformations out-patient program, their counseling team, and the manager. She is taking minimal medication and has learned how to calm herself and go to sleep naturally. This may not seem like a big deal but trust me when I say that this is a HUGE deal. The doctor there really cares about her well-being and is not at all interested in over-medicating her, in fact, she's down to taking minimal prescription medications. I feel sad to see the negative reviews and am so sorry that their experience isn't at all what ours has been. Transformations has been a huge blessing to my daughter, not without its hiccups, but I guess that's with anyplace you go. After almost ten years in addiction my daughter is finally beginning to realize that a sober life can actually be fun. I would highly recommend this treatment center to anybody.

Transformations is a top notch program. I work in the addiction field in south florida and can verify everything they claim to offer. They go above and beyond for their clients. They make sure that everything they do is ethical and in the best interest of the client. Their accommodations are unbelievable, their housing is nicer than my apartment lol. They have a very small client to therapist ratio, i believe about 1 therapist to every 8 clients. They just built a recording studio their also and allow their musically inclined clients have an artistic outlet when groups aren't going on. I could write all day about the unbelievable services. From what I have seen, the only people that have bad things to say are the ones that do not want to fully accept the program.

TTC changed my life! Never have I ever regretted taking that fearful leap of faith into the hands and care of the staff at Transformations. I recommend to anyone considering drug or alcohol rehab to just Do It!! Make the call, leave your phone number, answer the call back. Just don't look back and you will be lead in the right direction at Transformations. It's an experience that lasts a lifetime if you take advantage of it.

Individualized approach. Christian teachings bleed into programs that aren't supposed to be faith based. Time will tell whether it really helped my loved one.

Transformations is the place that I can proudly say saved my life. The knowledge of the staff and the togeatherness of the community was top notch. I developed a knowledge of how dangerous and life threatening addiction in any form is. Youre surrounded with staff that has been in recovery for years, and knows the difficulty in recovery. I would absolutly recommend transformations treatment center, to anyone suffering from addiction. They are life savers.

I chose to go to rehab for alcohol… I will never go to a treatment center again because of this place. This place treats you like you have been incarcerated and you’ve done something wrong, when you’re trying to do the right thing. They lie and they are manipulative. If you’re court ordered or sent there by the VA or mommy / daddy insurance company this place is great. But for a successful person seeking treatment this is not for you… stay away.

Severly misinformed me just to get me there...With the exception of a few techs, 1 physicians assistant and one M.D., staff had zero compassion and most were very unprofessional. Lastly, almost all patients were teenagers or in their early 20's. Way too much playing around in and out of classes.

My girlfriend is attending there and from what I have heard this place is a joke. Also if you plan to not attend meetings and not be caught this is the perfect place for you as once the my have your money they don't care. So again if your looking for more of a vacation then treatment this is the place.

Without Transformations my son would not be alive. Although he relapsed several times, he is now sober . It was Transformations that made the major impact toward his sobriety. This was the only rehab my son didn't use in or in other words there were no drugs inside the facility. Good security! I received a grant for him from Transformations to help with the cost of the program. It was still so expensive after the help I received. Rehab is too expensive. Not just transformations but all of them.

I searched high and low for a good facility that addresses dual diagnosis for my daughter, and had continued care at sober living facility after inpatient stay. This is by far the best place I've come across and one that she actually connected with and was happy there. They address all issues and provide a flexible therapy program which includes holistic, faith-based, and 12-step. She said she never felt better.

It is a well maintained and secure program. The housing is far better than anything I've heard of when researching my options and you have run of the grounds. As expected, the internet is located in the clubhouse, but each room has a computer for journal keeping and basic games. I've been sober for two and a half years after being a black out alcoholic for 5 years prior. If I were to relapse, Transformations would be the first facility I would call because the program and care is far better than anything I could have expected. Housing is in a former apartment complex and each room is two bedrooms. Each client has their own private bedroom. Each client is given a $75.00 Publix gift card each week and you do your own shopping for food and prepare your own meals in your apartment. There are 3 options each evening for meetings that you travel to via van; N/A, A/A, and Faith based. The staff seems very genuine. No meditation or Yoga programs when I was a client.

Please ask questions and request in writing any issues you deem important on making your decision to attend this facility. Be aware there is no separation of age during transportation, our activities. You will be around the "young and restless" . Groups are seldom separated by age, and distractions abound. Phone restrictions are everyday, contrary what one may be told. Extraneous billing practices of lab testing. Inconsistent decision making as clinical level
