I was in residential treatment for 5 months, due to trauma, and there aren’t sufficient adjectives in the English Language to describe the amazing staff and superior quality of service provided. The clinicians are top-notch and the treatment is exceptional; their level of training and experience is highest in nation. Also, would like to mention that they are magnificent human beings. Their interns undergo first rate training, and are always eager to be a liason with/between patients, BHT’s, and other staff. Their BHT’s treat all the patients with love and respect, and have all the same goal: The patient’s well being and self-sufficency. The cleaning staff is full of love, happiness, and well-intentioned. Without mentioning that the Nurses are always smiling, and highly interested in patient’s health.

Reviews provided by families who wish to remain anonymous: "Our family has faced many challenges and lifeskills has been a blessing for us. They have a very informative family weekend which helped our family grow closer together. They helped us gain insights and the information that was given will be valuable for years to come. The employees are skilled professionals and have saved our family. We cannot thank them enough." "I wanted to let you both know what a wonderful therapist Krista has been for my my loved one and I. He has been in five different rehabs since 2017. Krista was the first one I believe he has opened up to about problems he has been facing. She has went above and beyond to allow him and I visits even if it was just sitting in her office with her. He only has his parents and I as a support system other than therapists and Krista understood how much it meant to him and I to see each other every time I came down. She has also allowed him and I have to sessions with her in order to get him on the right track. At any time that I would email her or call her she was always there to give the information that I needed. Our whole goal is to get him healthy and home and I think that Krista played a huge part to him finally being in IOP. When he first came there he told Krista I will give you 30 days and that's it, but he then told me he was going to stay longer because he felt comfortable, trust me he doesn't trust at all. Krista is the first therapist that has showed compassion to his needs and what he was going through, all the other rehabs he has been to just kept shipping him off and would say he has needs (his issues are pretty minor) that we can't deal with here, basically he was caught in the Delray Shuffle. I can't express to you enough what a great therapist Krista has been to us. I really think that if she was not there that he would not be where he is now. She has a huge heart, tells it how it is (which is awesome, patients need the truth) and so much compassion. LifeSkills should be honored to have Krista Valz as part of their team. I actually see a therapist myself for BPD and if I could hire Krista as a therapist long distance, trust me I would in a heartbeat. He was actually a little dishearted when he found out that he would have to have a new therapist at IOP. I can not say enough about her, she deserves all the thanks that you can give her. She is an asset to your team and a huge part of his recovery. Thank You."

My time at Lifeskills for addiction treatment was an excellent experience. One of the biggest factors which made it so was that I felt like part of a team, actively working alongside my therapists towards a place of recovery, rather than a patient being worked on by doctors. The facilities were nicely maintained, the staff was delightful from the techs, to the therapists, to the interns. There was always someone there for me, eager to sit and process whatever thoughts or worries crossed my mind. My parents participated in family therapy alongside me which was, opposite of those I've experienced at similar facilities in the past, very comfortable. The family therapy staff kept my parents abreast of my treatment, and helped my parents and I reestablish stable relations- something which hasn't existed in nearly a decade. Not to sugar coat things, remember, I attended Lifeskills as a drug rehabilitation patient, and oddly enough, I found myself growing disappointed towards the conclusion of my time there. Considering the circumstances under which I arrived (coming to from a black-out, in jail, with few options) I was surprised to say the least as to my feelings about it. They make it easy to find the silver linings in times when, to the client, such may have seemed near impossible.

My time at Osceola was extremely helpful to my recovery and mental health. The staff here is supportive and give great advice. The environment is calm and relaxing and very well kept.

My state of mind changed thanks to Lifeskills. Every single person there helped me make my life better. It was not easy at first but, that's the way it goes when one disconnects and enters a treatments center. The point is to focus only on yourself, and the professionals in Lifeskills will guide you. Also, the people you are going to meet there are going to show you that you are not alone. Eventually, depending on your situation, family is going to be a part of the treatment. The infrastructure is well designed. Every townhouse is comfortable and the maintenance team is great, then it is up to you and your roommates to keep it organized. My life had to be paused in order to build my new self, stronger and healthier. Lifeskills was my home for 4 months, my case was mental and emotional recovery from a brain surgery and my struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder. I became a new person after being in Lifeskills.

Being a Veteran diagnosed with depression, PTSD and substance abuse, I started my journey at the VA. I heard about Lifeskills during my stay and I immediately liked the environment when I arrived. I was assigned a buddy which happened to be my roommate at the VA and that made things easier for me to adapt. I have adjusted to the groups, one on one therapy, and outside NA and AA meetings and also outings on the weekends. I really enjoy cooking in my apartment for me and my roommates and peers. I appreciate the staff helping me to make my appointments and providing transportation. Lifeskills is also assisting me with finding housing once I have completed the program. I highly recommend Lifeskills to anyone suffering from any behavioral health issues or substance abuse of any kind. Sincerely, Miracle.

The rules of the Lifeskills are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts must provide one girl and one boy, called patients, to participate. The twenty-four patients will be imprisoned in a vast outdoor arena that could hold anything from a burning desire to a frozen heart. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. The last patient standing wins. One patient to rule them all. This is how my stay at Lifeskills began. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to AA…. constantly to AA. But in the end, it’s only a passing thing. This shadow; even darkness must pass.

This place has saved my life, it is exceptional in ever way, the therapists from every aspect is great. The community living is very helpful to get your life back in order by going to the gym, yoga, the groups, and outside meetings really help you in your recovery. I recommend this treatment facility because of the wide variety of therapy, the staff and the overall good vibes it has in general; if your life is unmanageable and you want to change your life for the better- this is the place! Take it seriously, and you will get so much out of it.

I am 28 years old and suffer from addiction and mental health issues. In my life my sickness has taken me through so much pain, loss and near death experiences. On my path to recovery i have been through 26 treatment centers, detox programs and psych hospitals. I was completely at my wits end. No treatment center I have found had the capacity to help me, and it always ended the same way. Life skills south Florida has helped me in many various ways such as getting back to who I really am inside and out. My self esteem is boosted everyday as I taker care of my self, do my own laundry cook my own meals and attend self help, mental health and addiction groups throughout the day. The counselors are skilled and able to dealing with me on a level that is personal and supports the growth that I am PERSONALLY seeking as well as what my family wishes to achieve. I highly recommend Life skills south Florida to ANYONE who is seeking help in this area of their life.

We are grateful to lifeskills for offering us hope that our child can recover and lead a productive life. The parent’s weekend we recently attended gave us the opportunity to meet the staff and deepen our awareness of the programs available at Lifeskills. We also benefited from family therapy sessions that opened communications, allowed us to work and interact with other families that share similar situations and created an awareness of dynamics we need to implement to heal as a family. Since entering the program, our child has markedly improved because of the deep knowledge and professionalism of the staff at Lifeskills.

Bill Buck, 9 months ago

Lifeskills South Florida was the perfect place to treat my child's mental health and addiction issues. The staff 's qualifications and areas of expertise enable my child to get the targeted therapy that was needed. The staff are always available to answer questions and have treated my family with dignity and respect. I particularly appreciate the family therapy sessions. I would highly recommend Lifeskills Florida.

Lifeskills has helped bring me to Reality. Changed my life to more positive outlooks and positive way of life. Im learning new ways everyday. The staff has been extremely helpful to me. Their experience is very empathetic and knowledgeable at the same time. Clinical staff works on us individually; unusual. Half way is structured to keep us together and United. Learn to deal with our feelings and learn more what we want out of life before we go on our own. Thank you Lifeskills...

I had struggled with severe depression and anxiety for 13 years prior to coming here, so intensely that I came to view it as a fact of life, an inextricable part of myself. Lifeskills helped me break free of this, freed me from prisons in which I never knew I was contained. What's more, they did so in a way that empowered me to find my own solutions, providing me with swimming lessons instead of a life vest, an internal set of tools which I'm confident will always serve me reliably. This is the first treatment center I've ever been to, so I regrettably cannot speak to its comparative efficacy in an informed capacity, but I'm confident (especially in hearing about some of my peers' prior experiences) that it's a generous cut above the average. If you, like I used to, consider happiness a strange and fleeting anomaly rather than a consistent and familiar mood, I strongly recommend Lifeskills SF. It works if you work it.

my experience at lifeskills has been an incredible life changing event. All of the staff is genuine and truely are there to help every individual especially for the ones that really desire the help that will improve their life. I wish I could thank each and every staff member who has been included in my recovery. To make the flow much more appealing and the ease into not only the residential but the php and iop living facilities are tremendous causing the transitions much less stress oriented. If I had to do this over again this program would be my first choice.

Addiction is a crazy thing. Mental illness is a crazy thing. There is a fine line between wanting to be better and actually being ready for it. I was a patient at the facility in 2010. I didn't stay sober after Lifeskills. However, I did get and stay sober eventually and still am today. Had it not been for the treatment at Lifeskills, and all the insight that I gained by being there, it would have never happened. I look back at my life and my time at Lifeskills all the time, and I remember everyday, how lucky of a girl I was to have been there. Good luck to all, Jessica Gardner

Lifeskills is one of the best rehab programs in South Florida. They make sure you are having a good time while recovering from substance abuse or psychiatric issues. Very good staff to client ratio and comfortable home-like apartments.
