Philosophy

With over 75 years of combined experience, our staff is uniquely qualified to guide you through the recovery journey. Instead of transitioning from one treatment facility to a separate intensive outpatient treatment center, clients will stay with Amethyst for the duration of their treatment. From the first day of treatment, clients will form bonds with staff and with each other that will last through sober living and beyond. This continuity of care allows for a deeper level of trust and understanding between clients and their therapy team.

Amethyst recovery facility has been a blessing to me. Heart break at first but had a lot of influence on my x fiancé of 3 years where is currently in St. Port Lucie Floria facility at the moment. You and your dual male/female facility caused my fiancé to show his true colors and to allow me to let go of the toxic person he is or was. He let me know in a round about way without being up front and honest but he let me know almost two months A go at the amethyst recovery facility he fell in love in 3 days. Lol.. Yes I can laugh now. It was 2 months I have known a month. Couldn’t tell due to calling me at every call time for 30 days to let me know he loved and missed me..lol.. Wow!! Thank you amethyst recovery facility, this girl owes y’all for helping Chad W come clean bout a woman who isn’t interested in him I seen her text. To late this girl is done!!

I truly thought they cared but came to realize it was all about the money. They tricked my mom into paying thousands of dollars only to turn their back on me the first chance they got when the money ran out. They prey on scarred people and are fully guilty of doing all the terrible things you hear about treatment centers doing. Most of the people leaving positive reviews on here work there or are staff favorites. There are worse treatment centers but they really are wolfs in sheep's clothing. The clinical director is a real jerk. The new owners are as corrupt as they come. ITS ALL ABOUT THE MONEY!!

Amethyst is a great facility! I have witnessed so many individuals benefit from their program. Everyone at the facility cares so much and will go above and beyond for their patients. Amethyst is a facility I would highly recommend to others searching for a dual diagnosis treatment facility.

Amythest Recovery is the best treatment center for my son and family. We have been to over 12 or more treatment center and I found this recovery center is more family oriented and they truly care about each and every client. They make everyone feel important and loved. Other places were very good also, but Amythest Recovery truly stands out to our family.

N/A
Last year I entered treatment at Amethyst and it was a complete disaster. While a part of their inpatient program, their employee started dispensing a controlled substance to me and few a other clients. He lied to me and stated that it was like an energy multivitamin and promised it was completely normal. We don't have access to our personal phones, technology, or any communication with the outside world while in treatment, so I blindly trusted their employee. It was not until I failed a drug test that everything came to the surface. Amethyst never called the Port St. Lucie Police Department to inform them that they caught their employee committing a felony against against me, or any of the other men in the program that he did that to as well. That's just not acceptable and it is simply taking advantage of vulnerable people. If they had my best interest at heart, the police would've been there taking a statement from me that very night. Amethyst also never adjusted or refunded the amount of money that myself or my insurance company paid even for the days their employee was giving me drugs. And, let's face it- this isn't a charity. We pay upwards of $1600+ a day for treatment and of course, they kept every single penny. They also then required me to transfer to Foundations after this incident and that also cost additional amounts to be billed to my insurance company and to pay out of pocket (even though I was told by 2 different people that no additional expenses would incur). I disputed the cost and their CFO and a co-founder, tried to manipulate his way out of it. He was like, "we can write it off." And, he promised to, "not contact debt collectors." For anyone who doesn't know writing it off doesn't absolve you from a debt. It's simply the business claiming it a loss. The second they sell their debt to a collection agency (which 99% of businesses do eventually) a debt collection agency will come after you and it will go on your credit report. Last week he also called my girlfriend at work over a very honest review. Thankfully, inbound calls are recorded so I was able to review the entire conversation after. The conversation started off normal, but ended with he yelling at her and threatening her to drop this issue. He yelled that, "he's ready to take it into a full on legal war and enter full collections mode" if we don't drop it. Besides, the obvious fact that it was extremely unprofessional, he's violating the Consumer Review Fairness Act. We go to rehab, not because we stub our toe, but because we are dying. And that relapse caused by their employee could have put me in my grave. In good faith, I cannot recommend this place to anyone. Do I think every staff member employed there is bad? No. In particular, Ally R. is an amazing human being and her story is very powerful. I'm sure this place has helped others, but for me- they failed in epic proportions. This place only opened in 2014 and we selected it solely on the reviews. It wasn't until after that I realized how many reviews were left by employees family or significant others who never spent a day in treatment. I hope this never happens to any other struggling addict.

When I walked in the doors of Amethyst, eight months ago, I was a hopeless shell of my former self and could not manage even the most menial of everyday tasks. I had lost any and all sense of purpose I once had in life. Today I can hold a job and have found that the everyday tasks that once left me baffled are now second nature. It's a beautiful thing that I can wake up in the morning and not have to rely on any substances to get my day started. The staff at Amethyst took a sincere interest in providing me with the tools that are required to recover from addiction to drugs and alcohol. They identified my personal needs and worked hard to facilitate an environment that would allow me to grow as an individual. Through Amethyst Recovery Center I gained a support system that has my best interest at heart to this day. Amethyst saved my life. Amethyst was perfect for me.

The owners are great people I know them personally. They honestly try to help people inside and outside the walls of Amethyst. Not too many weaknesses that I can think of off the top of my head. I have sent a few friends in need of help to Amethyst. They all have said this is a great program and would send their own family members there.

My son is currently living in sober living at Amethyst. Five months ago I thought I was going to lose my son to his addiction. Today he is clean & sober since 11/29/15. He is is working and he is doing well. I can\'t say enough for Amethyst & the entire staff who gave my son the support, guidance & tools to help pull him out of his addiction. My son is back!

Amethyst is a wonderful and trust worthy facility. The staff is caring and are truly there to help the addict. They offer detox, inpatient care and sober living. They also believe the family should be involved. They offer once a month a family weekend. My son went there and is in recovery.

When I first reached out to Ian, he said my insurance wouldn\'t cover anything.He even offered to scholarship her! I\'m am so happy that they are paying for this. All of you at Amethyst have given my daughter hope and a new outlook on life. I am forever grateful for everyone\'s love, kindness, and support . Victoria is sooo happy and I have my baby girl back again...I\'m writing this with tears of Joy in my eyes and I can\'t thank you enough for everything. She is now on a good path and there is so much promise for a successful, joyful and rewarding future for her.
