Our Story

treatment team members organize activities and therapy sessions for the dayHigh volume, for-profit rehabs, as well as insurance-driven, hospital-based programs and institutions dominate the treatment field. However, these approaches are limited in their ability to affect recovery. Poor outcomes are stigmatizing for the individual and the recovery community. John Harden and Liz Harden established BoardPrep Recovery Center® with a single mission, to provide the most engaging and effective experience possible for each person, utilizing the latest addiction treatment knowledge and technology available.

Board (The Highest Standard) + Prep (Personalized Recovery Program) =  BoardPrep
A Better Approach to Substance Use & Addiction Help

From day one, BoardPrep patients enjoy a more personal and engaging experience. Moreover, BoardPrep’s great location, staff, and programming are all carefully selected to engage newcomers into recovery. New patients also matriculate into BoardPrep’s eHealth recovery monitoring system, learning and practicing daily accountability that is designed to last far beyond initial treatment.  “In-community recovery support” is a key innovation that sets BoardPrep apart. This includes home visits or telehealth by licensed clinicians and real-world “twelve-step facilitation” as a core treatment modality.

The BoardPrep men’s and women’s recovery residences complement treatment by providing a safe and supportive living experience during early recovery. Private rooms with shared living areas are available. BoardPrep also offers “residential treatment in your own residence” for local patients who are physically stable and who demonstrate the ability to engage in treatment from their own homes, with the support of their families.

Accreditation as a BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ORGANIZATION by the Joint Commission is a higher standard with more rigor in the areas that matter most to clients and families. Hospital-based programs are exempt from the behavioral health standards and are often only accredited as a general hospital. Some institutional and “faith-based” programs are also exempt from the best-practice standards assured by Joint Commission Behavioral Health accreditation. Before entering treatment, ask if the provider is accredited under the Behavioral Health Standards of the Joint Commission or go to dcf BoardPrep Recovery Center® is also a State-licensed Center under the State of Florida Department of Children and Families.
