Located less than two miles from picturesque Delray Beach, Wellness Resource Center offers an ideal setting for people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction to live, work, and get the treatment they need. A bustling downtown offers a wide variety of activities and amenities, from art galleries, film festivals, and museums to gardens, parks, and shopping centers. With miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline, a “resort town” atmosphere, and roughly 235 sunny days each year, a lifestyle focused on health and wellness is a natural fit in this region.
Situated in southern Palm Beach County, Delray Beach is a vibrant community that opens its arms wide to recovering addicts. Experts have named Delray Beach the recovery capital of America. Its safe, nurturing environment is highly supportive of recovering addicts, with dozens of halfway houses and sober restaurants, clubs, and coffeehouses on every corner. As a popular tourist hotspot, part-time jobs are plentiful and living accommodations are affordable. For individuals who need a change of lifestyle and a close-knit community of like-minded people to avoid relapse, Delray Beach is a great place to start the journey to sobriety.
Patients at Wellness Resource Center live in a private, courtyard-style apartment complex in a quiet residential neighborhood in Delray Beach. A swimming pool is located in the center of the courtyard for residents to enjoy in their free time. The complex is gated and monitored 24 hours a day. Some apartments contain two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and comfortably house two patients per room and four patients per apartment.
In this comfortable environment, residents practice independent living skills that are crucial for post-treatment success. With the guidance of a nutritionist, patients purchase their own groceries and personal items with funds allocated from program tuition. By preparing their own meals and snacks and maintaining their own living space, patients learn practical skills such as budgeting, meal planning, time management, and constructive use of leisure time. Each apartment is fully furnished, complete with cable television which residents can enjoy in their free time.
