In the early stages of developing St John’s Recovery Place, we put a lot of thought into the location and the environment in which we thought would be most beneficial. We knew, like many others, that South Florida is overly saturated with treatment centers. Our qualified professionals have years of experience in the field and have seen first hand the dos and don’ts of the industry. Starting fresh we knew that we wanted to separate ourselves from the pack and truly make a difference in the lives of people suffering from drug and alcohol addiction. So, we decided to leave the busy South Florida cities and take a 3-4 hour trip north along the coast.
We found an amazingly beautiful part of Florida in Crescent City along the St. John’s River. After laying out our goal and long-term vision for what we wanted our treatment to stand for, we knew that we found the perfect place. St. John’s Recovery Place sits on 8 acres of beautiful vegetation and is surrounded by peaceful trees and wild flowers. Crescent City, is a small town with less than 2,000 people populating the area and is nestled between two beautiful lakes in rural, and undeveloped, untouched Florida.
From the South Florida East Coast with an overwhelming amount of buildings stacked on top of each other, tons of city lights and loud street corners to a safe, quiet and private facility in the middle of Central Florida. We have found a treatment sanctuary, ideal for a recovering environment. It may sound a bit cliche, but even the air is fresher and the stars are brighter here. Trust us, our development staff is from South Florida and we have relocated because we know location does matter!
