The Refuge, A Healing Place

The Refuge, a Healing Place, is a 30-day to one-year extended addiction treatment program located in central Florida that specializes in PTSD, trauma, substance use disorders, and process addictions. When The Refuge opened, it was one of the few addiction treatment programs that specialized in PTSD/trauma, process addictions and substance use disorders. The Refuge admitted those that were not only suffering from substance use disorder and trauma/PTSD, but also those that were struggling with staying sober because of underlying issues.

The Refuge believes that chemical dependency, trauma/PTSD, mood disorders, and process addictions are treatable illnesses and that recovery and remission can occur with proper treatment. The focus of the program is on physical, spiritual, and emotional healing through client-centered care. We use a combination of addiction treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), 12-Step recovery, and holistic/experiential modalities and approaches. The use of education, group, and individual therapy, behavior management, and peer support are ways to introduce and reinforce abstinence and move the patient into a productive lifestyle with ongoing involvement in recovery. We achieve this through the collaborative efforts of a highly competent and motivated multidisciplinary staff.
