I especially like the Coves education program. I know of no other that offers this service aside from the great therapists
Parents be aware Life of Purpose is out of network for all insurances despite the claim to accept most major medical plans on their web site. When they verify your insurance they are actually verifying your maximum out of network cost and that is what they will charge you despite the care they may or may not provide. In our case they wanted us to pre pay $11k without any kind of treatment plan or explanation of their excessive charges
Please people don't send your loved one to Boca House !!!!! I am a mother and my son was there. They trow him out in the middle of the night with no where to go when he relapsed... After they charge my friend credit card ( a friend who help with money for a week )without his permission . They did a fraud.!!!! It's a scummy business and all they want from you it's money. They want to to fail to kick you out and to keep the security and made to to owe them more money. Everything it's a lie . I will not let them alone I will complain everywhere FARR, FDCF,BBB, because kids shouldn't be sent there. Shame on you Thief's . All of you
I would never recommend this place to anyone. The many reviews claiming that Boca House is all about the money is spot on. My son stayed here 3 months and relapsed 3 times. Each time I was charged $800 on the spot for him to go to detox. Otherwise, he would have been on the street. In addition, rent was $800 a month and the place was in horrible condition. But by far the worst thing about Boca House is that it is an unsafe environment for recovering addicts. Drug dealers hang out down the street and approach clients. The staff of Treatment Alternatives and Boca House know this. I'm not sure if they can't or won't do anything about this. Some people still use here. After leaving Boca House, my son spent 40 days in PHP at another treatment centerafter Treatment Alternatives told me our insurance would not pay for PHP. My guess is they wanted to keep the rent coming. I'm just glad my son escaped here with his life and wish he would have spent those 3 months elsewhere.
I was sent to Life of Purpose last summer by my therapist at my first treatment center. At first, I didn't want to go because it meant more treatment. I was excited to find that it was very different from my rehab. I still had to go to AA meetings but I ended up liking them because there are actually people my age at meetings around here. I really liked the therapists that did the groups and the groups were different than at my other rehab. They actually helped me to grow up and take responsibility for myself and my life instead of repeating the same things over and over. I also liked that I was able to get into school while I was there instead of waiting until after I left. I don't think I would have followed through, I would have waited and I love school. I definitely recommend this program to other younger people who have to live sober.
I owe the life that I have today to Life of Purpose. LOP not only offered assistance in stopping my drug abuse, as well as, the attentive and personalized therapy necessary to understand why I continually used in the first place, but they helped me become a student again. I came in broken, on my hands and knees, and left with hope, the tools necessary to stay clean, a university course load, and a smile on my face. Prior to my final days of using, I grew up with an amazing life. I have a loving family, I was an honor roll student and all-star varsity athlete in high school, and I had friendships that were healthy. My addiction started my final years of HS, and things progressively got worse. I attended a University in Colorado, before being academically dismissed due to my poor grades, which were a direct result of my using. Not having a clue of what to do, my parents sent me to Florida for my first 28 day rehab. That rehab was my first stay of 5 total admissions, before I was graced with the opportunity to attend Life of Purpose. The clinical care that is encompassed in LOP is beyond the best in the area, and arguably the nation. I felt like a member of a new family, and I was only able to believe in myself because the staff at LOP believed in me from the day I walked in. Through empowering my self-esteem and helping me internalize my self-worth and true potential, LOP helped me enroll in a local community college. I cannot put into words how great it felt to be a student again! Best part is, my parents were proud of me again! I graduated from that CC with highest honors, and was able to do so because of the phenomenal continuum of care that LOP provides. With attaining my first academic goal sober as a student in recovery, I decided to apply at the University of Miami. I am proud to say that as of today: I am a current student at UM, with a double major in Psychology and Health Sector Management, and a 3.5 GPA. My success in recovery, and the academic excellence that I was once set out to attain and currently am, is all owed to Life of Purpose. Their mission is in their name, they absolutely helped me achieve a life of purpose- one that I am so proud of, and forever grateful for. I am finally able to be the student, daughter, sister, and friend that I always knew I could be! Thank you LOP! I am, because you are!
I just read the review below and feel very bad that Louise W. had such a terrible problem. My daughter has been in LOP for about 4 months (or two consecutive treatment courses. This is a 60 day program so she has been there almost 120 days. I can't speak of LOP from 1 year ago, but now they certainly have their act very together. As parent, my child has been in 7 treatment program over the last 10 years. She has always relapse. No one at these treatment centers cared. The staff at LOP in a loving, caring staff. They haven't been in operation that long, so there are still things they need to put in place (family program would be helpful), but I know they are working on it. Opening a business is never easy and this particuliar business is very tricky. My daughter is doing very well and is now back in college. I can swear she will stay clean, but this is the most growth I have ever seen from her in a rehab. She cares about herself and others. She wants a future. They have done an amazing job building her self esteem and giving her a purpose. Andrew and Eric are amazing individuals that never stop giving back! Whether they are recovering addicts or not makes no difference. They understand the addict in way a non addict never could. The therapists have helped my daughter with amazing things.Self care, money management, anger management and trauma events. My daughter will have to leave there soon and go on to a halfway. My prayer is that the half way will be half as good as the rehab. Normally I would give this a 5 star, but because they have no family problem as of yet, I only gave it a 4. If you are looking for your child to start or finish their education along with getting clean this is the place. My daughter was an extremely difficult case and they have never given up on her. Kudos to Life of Purpose!CD
Dr. Cocores has been the only doctor I have seen, who has been decent and respectful to my circumstances and condition. My overall qualtiy of life greatly improved because of his help.
