Located in a beach community 60 miles north of Miami, Lucida Treatment Center offers luxury residential treatment for men and women struggling with a variety of mood and behavioral disorders, including major depression, anxiety, trauma, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. Lucida Treatment Center also has a luxury residential program for men and women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders.


The mental health treatment program combines individual therapy sessions with various treatment modalities, including trauma resolution therapies such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoeducational workshops, group and family therapy, medication management, and psychiatric care.

The program also has holistic and experiential offerings. An intensive family program is available once a month for loved ones. When clients exit the program, they are eligible for comprehensive continuing care planning and aftercare. This may include referrals to community resources and outpatient programs.


The mental health treatment program features a specialized staff of master's and doctoral level therapists, 24/7 nurses, and a board-certified physician.


Residents sleep in luxurious townhouses on the waterfront; the treatment facility is in a separate building nearby. Private rooms are available for an extra fee.


At the time of this writing, three alumni provided feedback for The Women's Mood Disorders Program to Rehabs.com. Their feedback was mostly positive with some concerns about whether the facility was worth the cost. Two of the alumni noted concerns about affordability.

On Google, the facility earned three out of five stars from 10 reviews to date. [1] The alumni frequently praised the staff members. In a representative review, alum Haley wrote: "The administrative staff was very helpful in financial/plan guidance. The clinical staff is excellent in individual guidance and valuable group discussions. Family sessions with the assigned therapist are also implemented. Peer guidance and roommate pairings were carefully made for maximum benefit. The facilities are beautiful, and the townhomes allowed for quiet time and cooking."


To date, one staff member has provided feedback about the facility to Rehabs.com. The anonymous staffer — who works on a different treatment track at the facility — gave a favorable review, awarding five out of five stars for overall treatment and leadership.

The reviewer also praised the variety of treatment approaches, the luxurious facility, and the low client-to-staff ratio, though they added: “The company is a start up so it's still working some things out. Policies and procedures are at times not consistent.”
