Lifeskills encourages residents to adopt a healthy lifestyle; therefore, they participate in a full range of fitness and recreational activities which are made available to them. Residents have access to the gym, swimming pool, and tennis courts within the apartment community. They also receive a membership and transportation to and from a local fitness club. Morning meditation, yoga and Tai Chi within the clinical setting and at a local beach are also an integral part of the Lifeskills path to healing.

Our residential accommodations allow individuals a safe haven during their recovery and return to improved health and autonomous living. Many patients choose to remain in the local community while attending Lifeskills’ transitional and outpatient services following discharge from residential treatment because of the outstanding supportive structure of the continuum care.


Lifeskills South Florida will unveil our new mental health treatment accommodations in 2009 that will continue our tradition of offering dynamic, therapeutic treatment to residents and individuals who desire recovery.
