4343 State Road 7, Suite 109, Davie, Florida, 33314
At Principles Recovery Center we believe in a small community that allows for maximum 1 on 1 clinician time and the most exposure to therapy throughout your time with us. We take pride in our facility only allowing people who genially want to get clean to be a patient. We believe a facilities pride should be in its clinical success rate rather than just its appearance in photos. Our slogan "It's not what we do, It's who we are" defines our organization as we have been down the same road as you. We are family owned and operated unlike other facilities and we will welcome you or your loved one into our center with open arms. There's rehab and then there's Principles Recovery Center. We put therapy over everything else: Each of our clinicians has over 20+ years experience in the field of substance abuse, out staff to client trio is 1.2:1, our group sizes do not exceed 10 people(average is 5). We accept most insurances as well as Self Pay Opportunities for those without insurance. We ask anyone considering to join our family to please see our Facebook reviews which detail the experiences of our former clients: We also have an after/evening Spanish Program!

  • Individualized Treatment

    Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
  • 12-Step

    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction

One thing I know for sure is for the past year I have been sober & I have done everything right, or at least to the best of my ability. The reason for that is because I didn't do anything my way & I didn't do it alone. I have certain people that I go to that give me advice, suggestions, the tools for me to figure out the best possible answer, or solution, to my problems. Life happens. I ask for help & I find the answer. It's almost that simple. For me, that's how this program works every day, one day at a time. Principles Recovery Center taught me how to do it. The owners, the staff, my therapist, my sponsor & the people I have met because of Principles taught me how to ask for & get the help I desperately needed & being sober today is a direct result of their hard work, their caring, & their wisdom. If you want to quit drugs & alcohol, contact Principles. It's the last choice you'll have to make alone.
    My experience at Principles Recovery Center Wes great. The counselors and techs went above and beyond to assist me in my recovery and in transitioning back into everyday life. The individual attention they give to every client made this difficult journey a lot easier. I just picked up my one year medallion 2 nights ago. I still remain in contact with my counselor and much of the staff there today. I would highly recommend them to anyone truly seeking recovery.
      The initial contact and admission of my loved one was effective. We got them into treatment.After that it became clear that principles was a family profit motivated organization. The market supervisor is their son who brow beat my family member for more money. The owners husband owns and runs the half way houses that clients are directed to after treatment. Our experience was that one house that we were directed to was chronically infested withe cockroaches, Our experience was that houses were inadequately supervised .

      As a mother of a heroin and polysubstance addict I have lived with and fought for my son's life. Unconditional love would not let me or my husband give up on our child. In the beginning of our fight for his life we were lost, we were uneducated to what was happening and how to help him. We learned very quickly in our state that there was no help with detox only replacement therapy. The multitude of events we were dealing with was suffocating. We were dealing with crimes, police, detectives, probation officers, court rooms, lawyers, DA' s, judges, jail time, visiting hours, a court ordered treatment facility, drug induced psychosis, strangers coming and going from our home at all hours, fighting with our loved one, hurtful words being said, holes punched through walls, broken hearts by ALL who loved him and every time he would scream at me to "leave me the **** a lone!" My response remained the same, "I'm not going anywhere because I love you." Frustration and fear of "That dreaded phone call" was always first and foremost in our minds 24/7. Slowly we began to get educated. It started with realizing that there was no "one" single answer to such a complex disease. After meeting with NAMI, police officers, Dr's, counselors, ER Dr's, more frustration, more road blocks, high cost help, lack of insurance help, we just started talking to anyone who would listen to us. Talking to the local police, state police and staff in the emergency room was a huge step. Our son was young, strong and NOT thinking clearly. Why talk to all these people? We saw too many young people being shot and killed because of erratic behavior. We were not going to allow that to happen to our son. I feel this also helped them see our son, the addict, in a different way. He came from a loving home and he was a great person who was hurting and needed help. As the days, months and years went by we continued to learn more and more about addiction. With help from a family friend we began our journey seeking help from out of state Rehab facilities in Florida. We used a few different facilities over the course of a few years. I believe we all learned something positive from each one. The most important advice I got was, relapse is part of recovery and we had to focus on getting back to recovery and put our focus there and not on the relapse. With hearts breaking we continued to push forward. With lots of prayers, tears and perseverance we refused to give up. From Maine to Florida and many phone calls we kept getting him back into treatment and each time we felt we all learned, grew and experienced something good and not just the bad. Even as we closed in on our last recovery facility we had days and nights of terrible fears. He was removed from a facility for breaking rules, moved to another, he left there refusing to go back.... After work, late that night, when he was angry that he had no place to go I finally agreed to let my husband book him a room with the stipulation that in fact he did have a place to go and he was to go back there in the morning. Principles Recovery was that place. We prayed and they were answered, he went back! He connected with a female counselor who he was able to truly relate to and we watched him grow. Principles is a small facility that has people who truly care about the wellbeing of the addict. To Principles the addict is part of the family. January 4, 2018 will mark 2 years of living a clean and sober life!! We still live one day at a time, however, our sons growth continues through his work with Principles Recovery. Both my husband and I highly recommend trusting Principles with your loved one, and we pray that your loved one will finally be able to see the glimmer of light out of their darkness with the love and help of Principles Recovery! Never stop believing in hope. Signed, a grateful mother, father and family of an addict ❤
