“We have worked with Lifeskills South Florida since 2003. They are one of our primary referrals because of their ability to work with diagnostically complex and challenging clients. They provide a variety of treatment services such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, vocational testing, chemical dependency and eating disorder treatment and assessment. More importantly, they are committed to working with treatment refractory clients and doing so with a team of very dedicated professionals. We are lucky to have them as a referral source and have heard from many family members who are pleased with the experiences they have had at Lifeskills South Florida.”

Clients

Regarding treatment:

“By now you know that I came from a very loving and competitive family. Our parents love us more than life but made sure that we learned that hard work and dedication would ultimately lead to success. In my quest for perfection, I fell apart. I lost sight of my dreams, gave up on my heart, and didn’t care who it hurt. Thank you for opening my eyes, pointing me in the right direction and never giving up on me. You are one in a million and will never forget you. In a way, you saved my life…Thank you.”
Grateful client, Bergen County, NJ
“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.”
Grateful client, California
“I graduated from college today. I wanted to write you to tell you that I couldn’t have done this without everything you and the entire Lifeskills team did for me. Words can’t express how grateful I am for your helping me to build a strong foundation in sobriety, sanity, and mental health. I’ve been working in a social psychology lab this past semester, and when I read in an article about an effective mentoring strategy that involved giving someone high standards of behavior and telling him/her that s/he is being held to them because s/he is capable of them, I thought of you. My GPA for the past year has been 4.21 and I’ve been working a few jobs, including some freelance stuff I used to do before everything went to hell. I couldn’t have accomplished any of it without your guidance and support during my first year of sobriety. I hope you’re doing well and still busting heads in order to save lives.”
Grateful client, New York, NY
“You guys have been incredible. Your knowledge and wisdom, your compassion and concern, has changed my life. I am not the same person I was when I walked into Lifeskills. I have a new lease on life. Thank you for your guidance and care. I am determined to live the things that I learned-and you have taught me so much. I will remember you and keep you in my prayers always. Semper Fidelis!”
Grateful client, Atlanta, GA
“I remember being amazed that you were able to draw, explain and organize my complex mind in a remarkable way. I learned how to believe in myself, be patient and not over analyze. You even accepted me with all of my defects and remained patient with me. For that, I consider you God sent. You are my guardian angel…I know that you aren’t leaving me because I refuse to leave you: I need you to remain my back up cheerleader. I cannot express to you how grateful I am for everything that you have done for me. Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but also the parent of all others.”
Grateful client, Palm Beach County, FL
“Lifeskills has helped bring me to reality. Changed my life to more positive outlooks and positive way of life. I’m learning new ways every day. The staff has been extremely helpful to me. Their experience is very empathetic and knowledgeable at the same time. Clinical staff worked with us individually; unusual. Half way is structured to keep us together and united. We learned to deal with our feelings and learned more what we want out of life before we go on our own. Thank you Lifeskills.”
Grateful Client, Florida.

“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.”
