The Source Addiction Treatment Center

Fort Lauderdale Location

The Source Family of Addiction Treatment Centers knows and understands the negative impact that drugs and alcohol may be making on your life. Treatment and recovery are not a “one-size-fits-all,” so we serve our clients by providing each with a personalized approach to recovery. Our methods seek to identify and treat the underlying causes of addiction including trauma and other mental health conditions. Our individualized client-centric treatment plans take an “entire person” approach treating the body, mind, and spirit.

Many of our clients are dually diagnosed. This means that the root cause of their addiction may lay in unresolved (and often unidentified) trauma dating as far back as early childhood. Or, it may have manifested itself from exposure to an intensely stressful event that still has unresolved consequences. Often, these conditions are a combination of depression, grief, anxiety, anger, and other mental health concerns. Our personalized treatment options combine medical and holistic therapies to assist in identifying underlying causes and resolve past and current mental health distresses.

Our residential facilities feature fully-furnished luxury single family homes in one of Fort Lauderdale’s finest and safest neighborhoods. Maximum occupancy is only 6 people per house. Our entire staff is professional, dedicated, and many of us are on our own recovery journey. We understand the confusion and mixed emotions of early recovery because many of us have experienced it ourselves. We work with clients one-on-one while providing a safe, non-judgmental, healing environment. We have but one common goal for our clients: provide meaningful lasting recovery, and a successful outcome.

Don’t let the effects of addiction continue to drag you down. You are not alone. If you or a loved one is bound by the chains of addiction, call The Source, 24 hours a day at (800) 204-0418.

Drug and Alcohol treatments offered at The Source in Fort Lauderdale, Florida include:

Group Therapy

Group therapy is essential as it allows for meaningful discussion amongst peers about common experiences and solutions. We stress to each client that they are not alone and group discussions help clients become more open. Groups sessions help break down walls and barriers that were built either in childhood or as the result of years of harmful substance abuse. Group therapy also assists therapists and counselors in better understanding their clients, and to identify the challenges they are facing.

Individual Addiction Therapy

Upon arrival at The Source, each client is introduced to an addiction counselor who will work with them in one-on-one private sessions throughout their stay. We believe that addiction is usually caused by underlying issues, and that the client is abusing drugs and or alcohol as a coping mechanism. The underlying conditions may have been caused by unresolved childhood trauma, physical abuse, rape, or other past events.

To end the cycle of dependency, one must also expose why they are choosing to numb themselves with alcohol or other drugs. Individual sessions provide clients with a safe place to explore and discover the complex nature of their addictions. Through this process, our clients learn how to resolve and heal their underlying issues. The long term goal of recovery at The Source is to heal the pain of the past so each individual client can lead a healthy, addiction-free life.

Twelve Step Therapies

12-step programs form the foundational basis of recovery groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. 12-step meetings provide a type of ongoing group therapy which focus on:

  • Accepting addiction as a disease
  • Surrendering to a higher power (as defined by each individual)
  • Forming relationships with sober people, and those who want to get sober
  • Sponsorship – One addict or alcoholic helping another addict or alcoholic

At The Source, we encourage participants to attend community 12-step meetings, read the relevant literature, and most importantly, work the steps.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

This treatment is one of the newer, more nontraditional types of mental health therapy. In recent years, it has grown in popularity. EMDR has proven to be particularly effective for treating the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD is often a core cause of addiction and occurs after experiences that may include physical assault, rape, or even military combat.

Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT)

RRT is another treatment discipline best known for healing trauma related issues. Particularly successful with victims of addiction, it helps individuals overcome the damaging effects of trauma with a fast, non-prescription drug approach. In treating the effects of trauma, and for the promotion of emotional healing, RRT is considered by many to be a revolutionary treatment. The process oftentimes only requires as few as one to three sessions and allows clients to get their lives back while shedding the burden of addiction.

Brain Mapping Therapy

During a brain mapping session, a scan of the brain is attained by means of a non-invasive recording of EEG brainwaves. The procedure is not painful and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. After many years of medical and psychological research, a database has been developed that compares your brain scan results to others in the general population. It is now possible to diagnose specific overactivity or underactivity present in the brain. Different diagnoses may appear in specific ways, making the procedure an excellent addition to neuropsychological testing. Brain mapping is also useful when trying to identify specific conditions including anxiety, depression, attention deficit disorder, emotional processing difficulty, and other behavioral conditions.

In addition to providing the most recent, research based substance abuse therapies, The Source Addiction Treatment Center also provides an entire complement of nurturing and holistic remedies and treatments that include:
