Based in North Palm Beach, Florida, The Recovery Team is an outpatient clinic that provides chemical dependency and substance abuse treatment to men and women seeking partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient treatment.

In addition to its programs, the facility also offers a sober living option to clients who have completed primary care and it is gender-specific.

The facility became The Recovery Team in 2012 as its success was immediate, giving it the opportunity to expand greatly over the years.
The first stage of treatment involves clients coming in for an initial evaluation and assessment, as this assessment will help the counselors and therapists find the best fit for the client. This is done because the facility offers individualized programs to each client admitted.

For six hours a day, Monday through Friday, the partial hospitalization program takes place. This program consists of at least one individual session a week and multiple group sessions a day. Clients with co-occurring disorders and trauma-informed care are advised to take part in co-ed and gender-specific groups, as they are made available specifically for them. Therapy methods and treatment approach utilized include Biofeedback, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Motivational Interviewing. Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are offered on-site in the evenings and clients are required to attend all. After completion of the partial hospitalization program, residents can transition to the intensive outpatient program which typically consists of group meetings which hold for three hours daily, three to five times a week. The average duration of stay in this program is 45 days but length can vary from individual to individual. The basic outpatient program is offered as a step down to intensive outpatient program and clients are only required to attend one individual session monthly and one group meeting a week.
The staff team at the facility is made up of counselors and Masters-level therapists with multiple certifications and credentials such as Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
