Lifeskills South Florida

1431 SW 9th Avenue, Deerfield Beach, Florida, 33441
Since 1991, Lifeskills South Florida has offered customized treatment programs for all genders, ages 18 and over, suffering from mental health conditions and substance use disorders. We provide clinically excellent, evidence-based, and collaborative treatment programs that are tailored based on each client’s unique needs to address a variety of mental health disorders as well as substance use disorder. Through our residential treatment program (RTC), partial hospitalization program (PHP), intensive outpatient program (IOP), and transitional living we ensure our clients can successfully transition back into their home life, family life, and careers with newfound self-esteem, direction, and control. Since everyone has different experiences with mental health disorders, mental health therapies must be equally as unique to address those diverse needs. Working with qualified clinicians at Lifeskills gives individuals the opportunity to develop personalized mental health treatment plans that address their needs and help them take the next step in their recovery. At Lifeskills, we offer comprehensive mental health treatment via our Six Clinical Pathways as well as other clinical modalities, which help unlock underlying thoughts, feelings, and emotions to help each client and their clinicians work together to evaluate unhealthy behaviors or habits. We also offer a robust Family Support Program that includes a family assessment as well as intensive therapy with a dedicated family therapist.
