Roaming the streets in zero degrees, because you cannot hold down a job?
Listening to your mother sob helplessly, as she watches you slip away?
Lying, manipulating even stealing, to get the fix you need NOW?
Choosing opiates or alcohol over your parents, your partner, your kids — your life?

“IF NOT FOR THESE PEOPLE, I MIGHT NOT BE ALIVE”
This was my first time in treatment, and I was scared to death. But The Core Centers made it easy for me to get the help I needed. I am so lucky to have found this place. The staff genuinely cares and I’ve learned so much about myself and my addiction. I know that if it weren’t for the people I’ve met here and the love I’ve been shown, I might not be alive today. I’m excited about my future because I know it won’t look like my past.
Drugs and alcohol are NOT your destiny.
Don’t want to become another statistic
Would do anything for another chance to do right by your parents, your kids, YOURSELF
Know you’re worth more than a painful existence
Soak up sun, fun & healing – on the water.
You’re here to relaunch your life, free from addiction—but who says you can’t have fun doing it? The individuals that attend The Healing Centers addiction recovery programs discover that sober fun is one of life’s greatest (and most important) pleasures.
At our beautiful addiction treatment facility—located right on the intra-coastal waters of brilliant Ft. Lauderdale, FL—you can grab a boat ride, catch the waves, or just soak in some much-needed sun.
Savor the serenity of our beachfront town, or go ahead and make a splash—with a range of high-adrenaline sports and water activities just minutes away from The Healing Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
This is not just about drugs or alcohol.
We treat the underlying anxiety, depression, and trauma that make you more susceptible to substance abuse.
For most people, addiction is just a symptom of latent mental health challenges: anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, or others. These challenges are often overlooked—or ignored—in traditional rehabilitation.
At CORE, we know that balanced mental health is the ONLY way to achieve real recovery…and a beautiful life.
Our dual-diagnosis approach empowers you to make changes that last.
We’re certified by the AHCA to treat major mental health illness, in addition to substance abuse. We start with a thorough medical evaluation to identify your mental health challenges, then create a plan of action. Our doctors might prescribe medications to stabilize your condition, or make pointed recommendations for therapies that’ll work best for you.
The goal? Treat the root issues of your substance abuse, so you can free yourself for good.
