Destination Health has been a leader in the field of addiction and mental health treatment since 2008. We have developed some of the most effective programs to help our clients recover and stay well longer-term. Our gender specific and family treatment programs have been modeled across the United States. So, what makes DH different?

Focus on Clinical Development Destination Hope places a particular emphasis on staff and clinical development and training. We invest in our clinicians and all our staff, providing them with opportunities to develop their skills and broaden their expertise with the goal of providing comprehensive care for the unique needs of our clients.

Program Development We are constantly evaluating and reevaluating existing and new programs. We further ensure that the clinicians and staff associated with those programs are properly trained to offer effective care, all while keeping the client engaged in their treatment.

Trauma Expertise All DH therapists are certified clinical trauma professionals and that sets DH apart. No matter the primary problem, whether it’s substance abuse or mental health, trauma is typically a component for clients seeking treatment. Actively addressing that important component further separates us from most.

Specific Training – We prioritize ongoing training with our support staff – nurses, behavioral health technicians, housing supervisors – in addition to LGTBQ training, trauma training and cultural competency training. We have in-person trainers to address the nuances of managing and responding to clients in the most appropriate, culturally sensitive, and effective way.

Longevity – Destination Hope has been a leader in behavioral health treatment for over 13 years, with many staff employed for over 10 years. This dedication to the client – wanting to be a part of helping clients and families – and the desire of the staff to grow, learn and develop new programming, is unique. That’s how we create an environment to provide quality client care.

Dual Diagnosis Expertise – We’ve seen many “dual diagnosis treatment centers” that can help people struggling with substance use and some co-occurring mental health, but aren’t equipped to provide services to individuals that have primary mental health issues and co-occurring substance use. DH has the intensity of services and a clinical staff that’s equipped to understand what client needs are and how to address them appropriately. What makes us a leader of Dual Diagnosis treatment is that we can do both. We can provide comprehensive care for clients that are mental health or substance abuse primary and are able to utilize all those tools to address underlying co-occurring issues.

Our Location – Our wellness program implements services that access the outdoors – taking clients on outings with their therapists and participating with a team to supplement the scope of their treatment inside. We can expand the possibilities of client experiences by using the outdoors all year long thank to our South Florida location.
