Empower Treatment Centers

2120 Range Road, Clearwater, Florida, 33765
eEmpower offers an alternative to conventional 12-step treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse. The residential rehab believes that everyone possesses the power to change their perceptions and behaviors, and encourages clients to look beyond traditional recovery labels. A wide array of services is offered, including inpatient treatment, day/night care, intensive outpatient (IOP), and outpatient treatment. The substance abuse facility takes a holistic approach to recovery and aims to create a comfortable, spa-like environment where individuals can begin the journey of sobriety.

Facility Highlights

  • Most Insurance Accepted, not Medicaid
  • 12-Step "Plus" treatment model available
  • Smoking permitted in designated areas


  • Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)

    Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.
  • Detox

    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

Do not send a loved one here. The director/owner is unscrupulous, unethical and a pathological liar with serious anger issues. Verbal guarantees made will NOT be provided in writing, and not honored. I paid large amounts of money for a 90-day inpatient stay, guaranteeing us 6 to 8 weeks of subsequent “free” aftercare which never took place, due to the rehab's deplorable financial condition, which resulted in the elimination of the promised aftercare program. Not only was payment demanded from us two weeks prior to due date each month, but when pressured to hand over the check to the owner, he made his priority discussing his other possible business ventures in the hopes of tapping my professional contacts. I later found out that we were charged much more than others. At the time of attendance, four out of five patients in treatment relapsed within a week of leaving, probably due to the lack of follow-up support and a structured program. During the 90 days the majority of the staff was eliminated as were the advertised amenities. Many of the staff members were compassionate, loyal and supportive. However, the turnover rate was high, all but 2 quit during the 3-month stay. At the time of dismissal, therapeutic staff was reduced to one individual. We now need to spend more money and find another program which will provide transition from a limiting, in-patient environment to the real world. We could continue to provide multiple examples of the ways in which this “ashram” took advantage of us during our most vulnerable time. However, we don’t wish to dwell on the past- but look forward to a hopeful future of recovery far away from Empower

Make sure to pay attention to their reviews on all sites, including the BBB. Horrible experience. Owners are not involved unless it is about money. They have zero medical background. Staff never stays long. Constantly changing rules and making them up as they go along. I have never seen such an unorganized place! Their website is not up to date and very misleading about what they provide and this was a common complaint. & Much, much more. Look them up and see for yourself. Here's your fair warning. P.S. UPDATE: I am NOT a troll. I purposely did not use my real name. They tried claiming I was a "troll" on google reviews. Like I SAID,FOR PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HELP or HELP for loved ones: look up all the reviews on several sites, for many years before until now! Also what success rates? They always say people weren't patients when they get a bad review.

The facility is nice, most staff are nice but don't seem knowledgeable on addiction or mental health. I they operate in a non-medication or non-medical standpoint, not offering medication changes and seem against treating mental health issues. Medical staff is not on the premises, except for the nurse who is always busy and seems to be pulled in all different directions. There seems a high turn around for staff, the higher-ups don't seem to value the staff. in the span of 2 months I saw good people come and go. The food is misrepresented, they say they offer a chef, but the food comes from a place called "fit life", so basically it's brought in and you microwave every meal.

Not what they say it is. Leisure activities are a plus. There is no medical staff except for a nurse, who is very qualified. My son felt that medical services lacked, as he did not see a psychiatrist at all while there. No psychiatrist.
