About Us

Helping those who suffer from drug addiction, find hope and recovery.

Personalized Care

Our program is designed to lower your level of care and increase your level of independence when you're ready. Your custom treatment plan will address your unique addiction history, physical and mental health, and personal goals for recovery. Your progress towards sustainable sobriety will determine how quickly you move through each phase. Clients spend as little as 30 days in our program or as long as six months. Wellington's programs and treatments are successful because our therapists are skilled at quickly developing a strong bond with our clients. The full continuum of care means that clients will continue the relationships they've had with staff from the moment they enter detox through sober living, and beyond

Elevations Health has earned accreditation from the Joint Commission, an independent, not-for-profit organization, which accredits and certifies more than 20,500 health care organizations and programs in the United States, including hospitals, surgery centers, laboratories, home health, and behavioral health programs.Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance excellence standards. We sought accreditation to strengthen consumer confidence in the quality and safety of our care, treatment, and services, as well as set us apart from other programs in our field which may claim quality and safety, but cannot demonstrate an effective and independent measurement tool to substantiate their claims.

FAQs

Learn more about our best in class treatment program

What Levels of Services Do You Provide?

We are licensed by Florida Department of Children and Families to provide: Out Patient Detoxification, Residential Care, Partial Hospitalization with or without Community Housing, Intensive Outpatient, and Outpatient services with an option of transitional housing and sober living as our clients achieve their recovery goals and move towards independent living.

How Long Is The Elevations Health Program?

Each person goes through our program at their own pace, because each person we care for is unique with their own set of issues related to their addiction history, and their physical and mental health. Thirty days is typical for our initial residential phase, but treatment can last as long as ninety days or more with our transitional care and sober living components. Our clinical staff will work with each client and family individually to seek the most effective plan and outcome.

Does Elevations Health Have Doctors On Staff?

We have a board certified psychiatrist and a board certified medical doctor specializing in addiction medicine on duty every day, and on-call 24/7 to help us with initial and on-going client assessments, medical and medication management, and discharge planning.

Does Elevations Health Accept Insurance and How Is Treatment Paid For?

Yes, most health insurance plans cover our services. We can easily check client benefits to verify coverage. We also offer an affordable self-pay rate for client's without insurance.

Where Do I Stay While I Am in Treatment?

We have upscale homes for our residential level of treatment, as well as very comfortable townhomes for our transitional and sober living houses as clients recover.

Does It Matter What Kind of Addiction I Have?

No! We treat people with all types of addictions including those with mental health issues which often accompany, or may be the underlying cause of substance abuse.

There Are so Many Treatment Centers Available. Why Choose Elevations Health?

Elevations Health is fairly small treatment center with only 6 clients in each home, 24/7 supervision, and 24/7 support. We customize each client’s treatment plan, so each one has a chance to be successful at their recovery process. We also provide all levels of care from Detox and Residential Care to Partial Hospitalization, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Transitional living, and Independent living (sober homes). Our therapists and ancillary staffs get to know our clients and work with them for their entire recovery process and beyond to guard against threats of relapse. Our outcome/success rating over the past three years has been over 90%. Above all, our staff is truly, genuinely dedicated to each client’s recovery.

Does Elevations Health offer 'Dual Diagnosis' Treatment?

With our ability to individualize treatment we are able to treat clients who suffer from more than just addictions. Often, when people are using drugs or alcohol it starts off as a social or recreational activity, but can quickly turn into a coping mechanism for dealing with underlying emotional issues such as depression or anxiety. Then it becomes a primary way to suppress feelings. Through dual diagnosis treatment we address the root causes behind the use of substances, and help our clients begin to heal mentally, emotionally, and psychologically, so the recovery process can begin. With licensed mental health counselors and certified addiction professionals, teamed with our physician medical director and our psychiatrist, we believe we can address all the issues contributing to addiction.

What about Faith-based Treatment?

Because of the size of our program and the individualized approach that we take, we are able to adapt to religious practices that clients would want to continue in their own faith during the recovery process. We have an affiliated Chaplain available for Christian counseling and Bible study, and we arrange visits or access to most other faiths, including transportation to Temples, Mosques, or Churches on days of worship including Holy Days. Every faith-based need is met to help our clients heal spiritually.
