Lifeskills: Treating Mental Health and Active Addictions

Imagine a place where hope is transformed into healing, where you are greeted with acceptance, not judgment. If you could walk through a door and begin to renew your life, would you take that first step? If you could begin to move towards restoring important relationships, would you take another? What if one step is all it takes to begin the journey to recover that which is lost in your life? What would that mean to you?

Lifeskills South Florida is a place where second chances become new beginnings. For over 25 years we have been a trusted provider, dually licensed to treat psychiatric and substance use disorders for men and women ages 18 and over.
