ABOUT WHITE HOUSE RECOVERY CENTERS
Headquartered in a commercial lot a mile from the beach in Deerfield Beach, Fla., White House Recovery Centers offers outpatient treatment at a few intensities, plus accompanying sober living facilities, for adults struggling with substance use disorders or a dual diagnosis. As one of the 366 private, for-profit rehabs in Florida, the center aims to set itself apart by offering unique "brain based" treatment methods.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The program at White House Recovery Centers uses a total of 10 different neurotherapeutic interventions — including brain-mapping, neurofeedback, electromagnetic stimulation, and transcranial electrical stimulation — to understand and treat underlying problems in the brain’s processes that may lead to substance abuse.
Clients start treatment with a thorough assessment of their neuropsychology (i.e. the state and physical health of their brain) as well as a biopsychosocial assessment. These findings are used to assemble an eight-week individualized program that includes three group therapy sessions a week, individual therapy with PhD-level psychologists, case management, and, when necessary, psychiatric services to treat any co-occurring disorders.
The center offers a four-week partial hospitalization program (PHP), an eight-week intensive outpatient program (IOP), and standard outpatient care. White House Recovery Centers can also provide support for a variety of mental health disorders, on a standalone, outpatient basis.
White House's treatment team includes a licensed clinical psychologist, a Ph.D-level licensed mental health counselor, a group facilitator, and a case manager.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Clients attend treatment at the treatment center and sleep at one of three sober living complexes, each of them located 15 minutes from the beach. There's a men's unit and a women's unit, each of which is made up of three separate bungalows with its own living room and kitchen. There's also a separate co-ed home. At all facilities, residents share bedrooms and have access to WiFi and laundry facilities on-site. Each center is staffed 24 hours a day by someone with ample experience in recovery, who will arrange outings such as barbecues and trips to the beach.
