Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Deerfield Beach Florida
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions – Deerfield Beach, Florida
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center is located on 201 North Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
I had the pleasure of interviewing company COO, Michael Way on Tuesday, January 19TH, 2016.
I could tell within a few seconds that Mike was my kind of guy! He is committed, honest, and lives a life based on spiritual principles.
My favorite quote of Mike’s was “Recovery is possible; there is a key for every lock!” Mike knows the importance of a relationship with a Higher Power in recovery for continuing spiritual growth and long-term recovery.
I asked Mike a series of questions over approximately an hour and thirty minutes; my time with him was enjoyable, I felt like I was at home with an old friend.
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center – A Special Place to Heal
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions is family oriented, a quaint 13-bed facility that succeeds where larger programs have failed, giving individualized attention to clients. They have a very positive, nurturing environment that promotes healing for both the family and the client.
They are a faith-based treatment facility founded upon the belief in, God works to provide a safe, nurturing and structured environment to assist clients in living the healthiest life possible. They believe that addiction is a three-fold disease: physical, spiritual, and psychological. Their treatments focus on healing each of these three areas by using the latest in cutting-edge approaches available. Their purpose is to serve God and fellow man, and strengthen their relationship with God through teaching and leading others down brighter and more enlightened paths.
Their program is six months long, not the usual thirty days. They have a warm family setting, not a cold, clinical setting; their private homes all are built with comfort in mind including pools. Guests have the time to build a solid foundation of recovery that can last a lifetime. Clients get to work with the same staff members for a six-month period with growth and seamless transition while the family recovers at the same time.
Company COO, Mike Way’s message to parents, is that addiction impacts the whole family, not just the substance abuser. Codependency, enabling, and other co-occurring disorders must be dealt with for long-term recovery to become a reality. Twelve-step therapy for the family can help everyone heal together. Parents need to know that there is hope and that recovery does work!
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center – A Peaceful Place to Grow
A state of the art rehabilitation facility that provides a safe, structured, and comfortable environment where clients can heal body, mind, and spirit. Clients are afforded private, serene rooms for therapy and treatment in a relaxed and secure setting. The staff knows how important a Higher power of the client’s understanding is to spiritual growth and overall recovery. Their six-month program allows enough time for a solid foundation, a life built on a solid foundation can stand for a lifetime.
Residing in Relaxation: The facility’s belief is that clients should be completely comfortable in their surroundings in order to achieve a successful recovery. Their cozy, fully-furnished transitional private homes offer a sense of tranquility. Truly a welcoming feeling of home, where clients can relax after a long day, read on the couch, cook dinner, or drift off in their comfortable bed.
Tranquility at Daily Reprieve: The facility offers a wonderful affiliate Christian and Recovery bookstore, Daily Reprieve on campus. In addition to a variety of books, jewelry, organic homemade body products, home décor, and candles, it’s a tranquil place to relax, read, and reflect on life and the future. Reading in their nook is encouraged.
The staff uses the Basic Texts of AA and NA, The Adult Treatment and Therapy Homework Planners, The Recovery Minded Church: loving and ministering to people with addictions, and several other books to aid in the recovery process.
Workshops and Meetings: Professional Recovery Coaches and those in long-term recovery or peer mentors are used as group or workshop facilitators at times. It’s up to each individual client if they want to work with recovery coaches. Professional therapists conduct one on one sessions.
COO, Mike Way finds that approximately three weeks into recovery, clients tend to open up to mentors who are in recovery. They will share information that they may not have shared otherwise. Clients will also share in group with those in recovery more than they will with therapists one on one at times.
Credentials and Accreditations: The facility is Licensed through DCF in Florida & Accredited through FARR; they have a Psychiatrist and a Medical Doctor, numerous master level therapists, and several highly experienced case managers, and plenty of certified support staff.
Lifelong Care Built for each client on an individual basis. The facility offers a range of programs to ensure that each individual is provided with the exact treatment that right for their given situation. Every individual is unique, their story, their struggles, and their goals; the facility’s full array of programs reflects that individuality. The caring staff at Gracious Care Recovery walks clients through every step of the recovery process. Once a client enters their doors, they are forever part of the Gracious Care family.
The Gracious Care staff will assist in finding the perfect detoxification facility; they have a personal relationship already established with reliable, licensed facilities.
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center – Programs
Their Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides a balance between highly intensive residential programs and less involved outpatient programs. They provide twenty-four-hour support while allowing clients to continue to live their lives.
Their Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a structured therapeutic program held at their clinical office. It allows clients to live at home while continuing to receive high-quality, effective treatment.
Aftercare and Sober Living: When clients complete clinical treatment, Gracious Care offers Christian sober housing that is focused on 12-step recovery and Christian values. Through community building and spiritual enlightenment, clients are better equipped to handle the stresses of the real world. In this structured environment, clients can apply and practice new, and healthy living skills while dealing with life’s daily demands in a safe, supportive setting.
Staff works with clients for six months, where guests interact with the same therapists and support staff during that time period. Based on client needs and progress, they are allowed to stay for an additional month of unmanaged, supervised care as needed. The client’s ability to demonstrate and practice the tools and skills that they have learned during higher levels of care will dictate the future plan. If they demonstrate poorly, they are redirected as needed. When ready to transition, clients will have their case manager follow through with an aftercare plan that sets each individual client up for success.
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions offer specialty programs: such as their Healthcare Professionals Program, which focuses on helping professionals who develop substance abuse problems. They also have a wonderful Alumni Program in place that is now thriving and providing support for those early in recovery.
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center – Result Driven
Success Rates: I asked company COO, Mike Way if he knew what the success rate was for Gracious Care Recovery Solutions, and he said, “There is no honest way to figure that out!” I believe Mike is correct. There are so many factors to consider in trying to get an accurate number, such as what length of time is the facility measuring, how are they measuring, are the clients telling the truth about their recovery, people move, change their phone numbers, relapse and then recover, go into other programs, etc. I respect Mike’s honesty with this answer. I can tell by the way Mike operates this facility based on spiritual principles, that they are quite successful.
The facility is clean, the staff is friendly and informative, and the program is excellent. Testimonies from former clients and their families demonstrate a standard of excellence that all treatment facilities should go by. Their team of professionals are connected, experienced, invested, compassionate, caring, and committed. The staff is with clients every step of the way providing stability and encouragement that’s needed to conquer this all-encompassing disease.
Gracious Care Recovery Solutions Treatment Center – Word from the President
A final message from COO of Gracious Care Recovery Solutions, Michael Way:
“Never give up, recovery is possible for anybody; there is a key for every lock, everyone doesn’t take the same path; however, everyone deserves recovery and can benefit from the twelve steps of recovery!”

I would like to thank Gracious Care Recovery Solutions and company COO, Michael Way for a wonderful interview and sharing his thoughts and beliefs with me.
