At Lifeskills Fort Lauderdale, we offer a non-traditional Level 1 residential program for individuals with higher acuity symptoms, including those with complex co-occurring challenges who present with certain health-related medical complications, psychotropic medication resistance/non-compliance, overall history of treatment resistance, and escalated risk-taking behavior/impulsivity, and specifically for those who have had multiple treatment episodes.

In our closely supervised, structured, and supportive therapeutic environment with 24/7 nursing support, we offer state-of-the-art detox and residential services. At our new location, we aim to prevent in-patient hospitalization stays by providing a program focused on stabilization for acute complex mental health and/or substance use disorders.
