The Source Treatment Center of South Florida is unique in both their approach to treatment and in the successful track record of their formidable staff. From the beauty and warmth of South Florida to their boutique variety of recovery programs, The Source is the perfect place to recover from addiction and enjoy life.
At The Source, we strongly believe that understanding underlying issues is a key factor in the treatment
of addiction and a successful recovery. In fact, we believe that addiction is a disease that centers in the
mind. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), more than 45 percent of
people with an addiction have a co-occurring mental health disorder. This is often referred to as a dual
diagnosis. In simple terms, this means that the use of alcohol and/or other drugs is often times a
symptom of a deeper underlying issue.
Some of the more common underlying issues that result in an individual to turn to alcohol and / or
• Anxiety – Panic Attacks
• Bi-Polar disorder
• Chemical Imbalance
• Physical Pain
• Trauma – Rape – Molestation
• Family turmoil
• Low self-esteem
• Lack of purpose
Based on our own experience, we strongly believe that if we assist our clients in identifying their
underlying issues and treat those issues along with their addiction treatment, their chances of a
successful, relapse free recovery are much improved. In fact, once we identify and heal the underlying
issue that’s driving the dependency on alcohol or other drugs, clients will have reached a major
milestone, and be that much closer to long-term sobriety.
At The Source, we do not believe that long term recovery comes in a one size fits all program. For this reason, each client, upon arrival, will undergo a comprehensive physical and psychological exam with our team of physicians, mental health specialists, spiritual advisors and nutritionists. Together, we will determine what the client’s underlying issues are so we can then customize an individualized approach to treatment. The Source provides a therapeutic environment where real change happens – behavioral change, physical change, personality change and psychic change. We treat the whole client – body, mind and spirit, not just substance abuse. We provide our clients with a lifetime plan, living in sobriety.
