Since opening its doors in 2004, The Refuge has become one of the premier residential treatment programs specializing in treating adults suffering from trauma and PTSD.
Besides PTSD and trauma, The Refuge also offers treatment for addiction, eating disorders, depression, and co-occurring disorders.
Nestled in 94 acres of lush campus amid Ocala National Forest, The Refuge offers small cabins as its housing units. Scattered throughout the property, The Refuge offers 25 male beds and 36 female beds. The only difference between the two being the number of residents sharing a room and the presence of lofts. While three female residents share a room, two men share a room in the housing unit for men.
The pine-covered residential campus has a volleyball and basketball courts, a swimming pool, and a fishing dock. The property also has a ROPES courses (high and low). It also offers many trails suitable for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.
Since the focus is on being in touch with nature, residents shouldn’t oo much usage of amenities like the internet or TV in these units.
Residential programs last anywhere from 30 days to a year. On-site detox lasts for seven to ten days.
Each treatment track offered at The Refuge addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of an individual. Primary offerings include 12-step meets and CBT, along with off-site NA/AA meetings. That said, the center focuses more on experiential treatment.
The list of experiential treatment modalities is very vast and includes adventure therapy, music, and art therapies, hypnosis, psychodrama, yoga, acupuncture, Reiki, equine therapy, EMDR, and somatic experiencing.
A typical day at The Refuge starts with a morning meditation followed by breakfast, a community meeting as well as a morning group session with nearly six to nine residents. The session lasts for almost two hours. After that, residents get an hour to work on their assignments or attend step-work groups.
Lunch follows this. The afternoon sees yet another group session with a different set of residents. This is followed by free time. During their free time, residents can meet therapists, stroll on the campus, catch up with their friends and family, or just relax.
Every six weeks, The Refuge arranges a four-day family week where families get invited to the educational sessions on ways to communicate, set boundaries, as well as listen to each other.
The treatment team at the Refuge includes two doctors, a nurse director, and a 13-member strong clinical team comprising of psychologists, therapists, and counselors. The center also has eight staff members who cater to outpatient services.
Approximately $27,000 (30 days).
