Your Life Recovery Center Philosophy

Your Life Recovery Center takes a holistic approach to treatment planning. We offer traditional group/individual therapy while incorporating alternative/emerging therapies such as EMDR, bio-neuro feedback, yoga, music, art and outdoor/experiential therapy. This approach may include AA/NA principles. While we at Your Life Recovery Center are proponents of the 12 steps, we realize that AA/NA is not for everyone and acknowledge that there are many paths to recovery. Participation in AA/NA is encouraged but not required.

Areas of Specialization

  • Individualized Treatment
    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.

  • 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.

Review by Contributors


Located in Boynton Beach, Flor., only a mile from the actual beach, Your Life Recovery Center provides holistic programming for individuals and their families seeking to overcome addiction. Designed as an alternative to the 12 Steps, treatment here combines group therapy and holistic therapies - acupuncture, hypnotherapy, spiritual counseling, - all in a comfortable, luxurious setting. Dental care is provided, though detox services are not.


Programming at Your Life Recovery Center has several goals to it. Through counseling with their therapists, men and women will learn to develop new perspectives and life skills, identify personal goals, and take responsibility for their themselves. By sharing and listening to one another in group therapy, believed by the center to be a core component to a successful recovery, they’ll find relief in discovering that they’re not alone in their struggle, and possibly even come to new ways of addressing their own issues.

As a holistic program, Your Life Recovery Center also provides clients with yoga, meditation, art therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EDMR), and more. Trips to the nearby beach and professional sporting events make up the weekend curriculum.

Other services that may be part of a client’s personalized treatment plan include outpatient treatment, career and educational counseling, and family sessions. There’s also an Executive track for high-profile businesspeople unable to walk away from their companies, yet still in need of recovery support and assistance.


Proud of its “director and staff with over 30 years experience,” Your Life Recovery Center employs counselors and therapists as well as specialists certified in a variety of holistic practices.


Male and female clients are housed separately. The men’s house features a large swimming pool out back, and the women’s home a modern, fully-equipped kitchen. Each home, in addition, supplies WIFI and large screen TV’s.

A true luxury facility, Your Life Recovery offers up the conventional as well as the esoteric. In addition to nutritional counseling, massage therapy, and acupuncture, men and women are also taken off-site for equine therapy, personal training, Pilates, and marine therapy. For those comfortable out on the water, deep sea fishing and kayaking are also on offer, while spa services may be available at select locations.


Though she was enthusiastic about the center’s accommodations, Nancy, the only reviewer to date, was highly disappointed with the actual treatment her daughter received: “They lied about everything, mostly about being able to take a patient with type 1 diabetes.” In her survey, she submitted one-star ratings for the treatment effectiveness, the staff’s level of training and experience, the counseling options, as well as the holistic and exercise opportunities.

On Google, where the center has two five-star reviews as of this writing, Amber shared her family’s success story. “They helped the father of my youngest realize he deserved to live a sober life,” she posted. [1]“That’s an amazing feat in itself.” Another five individuals contributed towards an excellent average rating of 4.8 out of five stars on the center’s Facebook page, though none had written feedback.[2]


Your Life Recovery Center accepts major insurance plans such as Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, and Cigna, to name a few.

I took my son to Your Life on a Monday. We sat with the therapist and explained that he had co-occurring mental health issues. It did not seem to be a problem at the time. I get a call the next day, on a Tuesday that he was being very disruptive in class and that I would need to pick him up because he couldn't sleet there overnight. So, I made the 1 1/2 hour drive to pick him up and bring him home. Their quote was "we've never dealt with someone like him before"! Really? None of your residents have had co-occurring mental issues along with their addiction? A total waste of time and energy. What do they want? Perfect patients that behave properly? I guess they don't want to earn their exhorbitant fees.
