Lifeskills South Florida

1431 SW 9th Avenue, Deerfield Beach, Florida, 33441
Since 1991, Lifeskills South Florida has offered customized treatment programs for all genders, ages 18 and over, suffering from mental health conditions and substance use disorders. We provide clinically excellent, evidence-based, and collaborative treatment programs that are tailored based on each client’s unique needs to address a variety of mental health disorders as well as substance use disorder. Through our residential treatment program (RTC), partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and transitional living we ensure our clients can successfully transition back into their home life, family life, and careers with newfound self-esteem, direction, and control. Since everyone has different experiences with mental health disorders, mental health therapies must be equally as unique to address those diverse needs. Working with qualified clinicians at Lifeskills gives individuals the opportunity to develop personalized mental health treatment plans that address their needs and help them take the next step in their recovery. At Lifeskills, we offer comprehensive mental health treatment via our Six Clinical Pathways as well as other clinical modalities, which help unlock underlying thoughts, feelings, and emotions to help each client and their clinicians work together to evaluate unhealthy behaviors or habits. We also offer a robust Family Support Program that includes a family assessment as well as intensive therapy with a dedicated family therapist.

I have attended all of life skills 3 programs from residential to outpatient and let my experience be a warning. The owner is only concerned about you so far as your monetary value is concerned. If your older expect to be around a bunch of 20 year olds who have a fit just about every group, whose parents dump them here for a lack of better solution. The other program I attended was a much more professional and more genuine place, the programs had different age groups, the staff was far more polite and courteous, far more one on one therapy. Don’t waste your time here folks

I would NOT advise anyone to send their loved one here. They are all about taking you in as long as you have insurance and or can pay privately which is excess of $30K a month. As soon as my son's insurance notified them they were no longer paying for residential, within a few days I was told to come pick him up since they were not getting paid. He was in a wheelchair and was discharged without any Discharge Plan for after care or to discuss next level of care. Thankfully he is now in a center that actually cares about nothing else but making sure my son gets the care he needs. This place is called GRACIOUS CARE RECOVERY SOLUTIONS....They are Angels on Earth

This is a terrible cash grab rehab. This place looks good on paper but is absolutely disgusting. Quick on the trigger to 5150 clients, constant client thefts with no repercussions. Narcotics being traded across the facility. Inept therapists solely concentrated on paperwork and books that had nothing to do with therapy. Many groups consisted of unhelpful practices. Clients who broke confidentiality rules were not reprimanded. If you had cash, you were stuck.unless you leave against medical advice. Providers who paid for treatment were duped into keeping the client in treatment. Essentially therapists could say whatever they wanted and the individuals were deemed resistant to treatment or mentally unstable. PLEASE save your money or insurance and go to a different rehabilitation center.
    I Suffer from Bipolar. Lifeskill's is a safe environment to be & get treated.The groups I attended helped me a lot as well as the therapists & staff that work there.Very pleasant to work with. Lifeskill's is the place to be with mental illness or addictions.I would love to thank select staff for all the support & patience with me. The staff & therapist's are always at point. I'm truly glad my family made a choice for me to be at Lifeskill's. Thank you again for all the support I received & got back on my feet very fast.
