Structured Freedom in Addiction Recovery at Foundations Wellness Center


A New Life that Supports Being Clean & Sober

Recovery is not just about avoiding substances; it’s about rediscovering yourself, your passions, and your place in the world—and a structured freedom program can help guide you on this transformative journey.

Structured freedom allows you to rebuild your confidence, practice new coping skills in a real-world setting, and gradually take more control over your life. With a solid routine and a network of support, you will build a strong foundation in a new and healthier life.

Structured freedom at Foundations starts with partial hospitalization program (PHP), ends with our outpatient program (OP), and endures for a lifetime with our alumni program.

Gradual Step-Down in Care

A PHP is like a day job devoted to recovery, where you go to treatment activities during the day but return home at night. You’ll spend most of the day, five days a week, at our treatment center. Your days will be carefully structured with a mix of therapy sessions, group discussions, and activities focused on healing.

After successful completion of our PHP program, you will step down into our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) of nine to 21 hours a week. It is designed to fit around your life – allowing you to work, go to school, or take care of family while getting the help you need. With more flexibility, it is a good step for people who have completed a PHP or another full-time program but still need structured support as they transition back to their daily lives.

After IOP, our outpatient treatment program provides one to three hours a week of support for up to six months or longer. Finally, you will be invited to participate in our thriving alumni program – with weekly meetings, quarterly events, sports and family friendly gatherings, and private social media group – from the day you enter our doors. We consider our clients our family, and we are always there for you.


Sober Home Living

We encourage our clients who don’t have access to a supportive environment to take advantage of the many sober living options available nearby.

A sober living home is a shared living space for people who are committed to a substance free lifestyle. Think of it like a house shared with roommates, all of whom have the common goal of staying free from alcohol and drugs. They provide a supportive community environment that reinforces healthy habits while transitioning back to regular life after treatment.

Residents typically follow house rules, such as curfews. There is a live-in house manager, who can administer daily breathalyzer tests and random urinary analysis tests, to ensure residents remain sober. In this environment, you can lean on others for support while you build your independence in a structured, substance-free setting.

Benefits of Structured Freedom Addiction Treatment

Scheduled Therapeutic Activities

In these programs, you’ll participate in various kinds of therapy. There are group sessions where you can share experiences and learn from others, one-on-one therapy for personal guidance, and specialized therapies that might focus on things like art, music, or managing stress, all depending on what you need and what the program offers.

A Consistent Schedule

Having a set schedule helps create a sense of normalcy and stability. It means you always know what to expect from your day, which can make it easier to focus on getting better without worrying about what comes next.

Life Skills and Coping Strategies

These programs teach you important skills for day-to-day living—like how to deal with stress in healthy ways, manage your time, or communicate better. These skills are key for building a life that supports your recovery.

Relapse Prevention Planning

You’ll also work on planning ahead for how to handle situations that could lead to a relapse. This means learning to recognize warning signs and knowing what steps to take to stay on track

Supervised Clinical Freedom

You’ll have chances to make your own choices about certain parts of your treatment. This helps you practice making decisions in a safe space, which is a big part of maintaining your recovery outside of the program

Controlled Exposure to Real-World Scenarios

You’ll also work on planning ahead for how to handle situations that could lead to a relapse. This means learning to recognize warning signs and knowing what steps to take to stay on track

Hope For a Brighter Tomorrow

Remember, every step you take towards recovery is a step in the right direction, no matter how small it may seem. Structured freedom programs understand this. They are designed to walk with you, offering a steady hand as you navigate the complexities of rebuilding your life. These programs respect your individuality and empower you to make choices that align with your own recovery goals, all while providing the safety net of professional support.

As you stand at the crossroads of recovery, consider the path of structured freedom. It’s a journey that combines a supportive structure with the personal freedom to grow—a blend that has helped many people find a solid footing in a life free from addiction.

The intensive outpatient program consists of nine to 19 hours of treatment per week based on personal needs and desired treatment plan. This program offers clients more freedom to apply the skills acquired in therapy, and get them on the track to full recovery.

If you’re considering addiction treatment or know someone who needs help, review our most frequently asked questions to find the answers that inform and provide essential peace of mind.

What is treatment like (what should I expect?)

The first three to five days are the roughest – you are adjusting to life after detox – but soon after, as you settle into the program, you will experience group therapy, individual therapy, and medication management. You are learning how to balance work and life again, so you will have fun as you educate yourself and come to understand yourself better. We incorporate not just traditional methods, but you will also participate in experiential-based activities such as kayaking, biking, hiking, beach trips, snorkeling, and more.

What should I bring (and not bring)?

We want you to be comfortable at Foundations Wellness Center. Our admissions team will orient you to our facility and let you know which items you should bring upon admission.

Is your program accredited?

Yes, we are licensed by the Florida Department of Children and Families and are accredited by and exceed the standards set forth by the Joint Commission Accredited Health Organization (JACHO), which is the gold standard of treatment. We are also associated with the Better Business Bureau as well as Police Community Partners.

What happens after I complete treatment?

We have a transitional step-down process that allows clients to gradually step back into the world. Clients are also supported through integral phases of early recovery milestones, with alumni check-in to support and access to therapists, long after their stay here.

Our Happy Clients


“So instead of my story starting at birth (which is a horrendous story in itself!), I’m going to start where my addiction really started, which was 2006 while I was working as a nurse. I had very recently gotten a divorce and had untreated mental health issues. I began using meth to self-medicate because I felt so down…
