We help clients & families build the foundation for lasting change in recovery.
Family First residential treatment is a safe, supervised, and supportive environment for teenage boys to fully engage with their recovery from a substance use disorder.
We provide a special program in a safe environment that blends clinical treatment informed by evidence-based research. This takes place in a comfortable home-like environment that includes Twelve Step community exposure and intense educational support in a dedicated school setting. Our clean, modern, and well-appointed house in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida provides a quiet and peaceful place for adolescent boys to fully engage in the transformative process of recovery.
Family First provides residential treatment for young men aged 14 to 18. Please note that we are not able to admit clients unless they are medically stable, including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder or active suicidal ideation. Please call admissions staff to clarify if this does or does not apply to your loved one.
Early recovery from substance use disorders is often marked with emotional, mental, and behavioral instability which is why our treatment approach addresses the experiences of every member of the family.
Family First Adolescent Services provides vital programs for families, helping them to overcome the fear, frustration, and anxiety that comes with watching their child struggle. The same feelings that in the past may have made parents feel isolated and alone can be a powerful, unifying force in an environment that validates and supports parents in pain.
