Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center Overview

Located in the city of Pembroke Pines, Florida, Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center is a care and treatment center for mothers with children, pregnant women, and families dealing with substance abuse, mental health issues, and family dysfunction. The facility was founded in 1995 and is one of the few rehabilitation facilities—one of six facilities—in the country which provides residential treatment for mothers with children and pregnant women. More than 20 years ago, some women in the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale had a vision, and this became the Susan B. Anthony Recovery Center. Originally, the facility could only accommodate and provide treatment for five mothers and six children. These clients usually stayed in a group home. The center has now expanded into a 5.5-acre property with the capacity to provide treatment for up to sixty families. The center has built various affiliations and relationships with prominent national and state organizations and boasts of a dedication to providing excellent behavioral healthcare. Additionally, the center has reunited more than 1,300 families; serves more than 60 pregnant women and 50 children daily; and has served more than 1,900 children since its beginnings. Among the levels of care, the facility provides outpatient rehab, employee addiction treatment, residential treatment, and various addiction therapy services.

Accommodation & Food

The center offers a safe and comfortable environment for mothers, children, women, and families to be treated as a unit. The residential treatment center is a complex with about 40 apartments and each apartment is equipped with bedrooms, a dining room, a full-sized kitchen, a living room, and a bathroom. A mother and up to three kids can be accommodated in an apartment. Many of the women at the facility are recommended from foster care or come from prison and homeless shelters. These women are given accommodation and food and participate in cooking classes and nutrition. The women are encouraged to care for their children, clean, and cook like they normally would. This is done so as to instill responsibility and encourage healthy habits.

I use to hit myself, put my head through walls punch out windows brake things I’ve had staples in my head stitches in my wrists and arm. I don’t do it as often as I use to but I cope with my issues by using meth. I’ve used on and off about 10 but the past 3 years has been constant and I started shooting a couple months ago..

I am a white 30 y/o female single mother with little to no income but I Do have Medicaid. I like Tranquil Shores because it’s the only place I’ve seen that acknowledges how depression can and often does lead to drug abuse or vice versus. I don’t drink but both my sister and father are alcoholics I don’t take pills but my mom is addicted to her medication she suffered a stroke due to her addiction to meth about 6 years ago. Sometimes if eel as if that maybe my fault because I did the drugs with her days before she had the stroke. My dad is also addicted to methamphetamines along with his alcoholism..
