Lifeskills South Florida

1431 SW 9th Avenue, Deerfield Beach, Florida, 33441
Since 1991, Lifeskills South Florida has offered customized treatment programs for men and women ages 18 over suffering from mental health and substance use disorders such as: anxiety disorders, bipolar disorders, borderline personality disorders, depression, substance use disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and thought disorders. As a national Center of Excellence, our goal is to provide affordable, customized treatment options that transform lives and empower clients to sustain long-term recovery.

Facility Highlights

  • Individualized treatment plans
  • Treatment for psychiatric, co-occurring and addictive disorders
  • Individual and group therapy


  • Residential Treatment

    Our non-institutional, residential treatment facility gives residents access to the local community during their recovery, allowing for the adaptation of new coping skills. Patients who need long-term treatment will engage in the residential program and will receive individualized treatment planning and ongoing support from both the therapeutic community and Lifeskills’ highly skilled clinical staff.
  • Partial Hospitalization Treatment

    As clients work through independence, we offer residential treatment clients a partial level of care. Partial hospitalization encourages clients to increase their responsibility and ownership. Recovery is not always linear; if there is a need due to safety and/or clinical needs, clients can return to a higher level of care seamlessly without missing a day of care.
