Created from the vision of a small group of women in the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale in 1995, The Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center has grown from one group home, housing five mothers and six children, to a beautiful 5.5 acre campus in Pembroke Pines with the capacity to serve over sixty families. The Center provides women with a safe, supportive setting in which they can address their substance abuse without being separated from their children. The highly structured program emphasizes family values and also offers treatment for children, taking a holistic approach to healing entire families.

Facility Highlights

  • Individualized Treatment Plan
  • Psycho-Educational Groups
  • Exercise Classes


  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

Rehabs 360 Guide


The Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center, named for the eponymous nineteenth-century women’s rights activist, is a 5.5-acre campus 20 miles north of Miami that offers residential and outpatient treatment plus aftercare for mothers and pregnant women 18 and older who are struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. Founded in 1995, the center’s goal is to “transform families by providing help, hope, and healing for mothers and their children to live responsible drug-free lives.”


Treatment at Susan B. Anthony begins with a bio-psychosocial assessment. Programs include individual and family/couples therapy, therapeutic and educational groups, peer mentoring, and trauma reduction therapy.

A case manager helps clients with life skills such as childcare, housing, budgeting, and discharge planning. Residents may also take advantage of individual and group educational and career sessions, including vocational classes, job placement assistance, and G.E.D. assistance.

Programs are offered for children to help with child development as well as offer parenting practice for mothers. Children’s programming begins with a development assessment followed by individual and/or group sessions, play therapy, and social skills building.

Outpatient care is available — the facility’s website lists an intensive outpatient program (IOP) and general outpatient care, but does not give program specifics for either. Aftercare includes individual and group therapy sessions along with continued assessments.


Staff includes a psychiatrist and nurses. The alum and loved one polled by Rehabs.com rated the staff's level of training and experience three and five out of five stars.


Each fully furnished apartment has two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a large bathroom, living area, and dining area to accommodate a mom and up to three children. Transportation within Broward County is provided.

However, alum A.R.F. in a negative review wrote: "The so called " therapists" muss their appointments and dont seem to care about your recovery either , more like wanna be parole officers.... im down right disgusted."

Although providing no ratings, former staff member T.R. wrote in a negative review: "I am appalled at how this program instead of helping these women out, make them swim against the current."


Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center’s website indicates that private insurance is accepted. Residents of Broward County as well as minority and uninsured pregnant women and mothers with a child under one year old may qualify for free treatment.
