Mango Bay Retreat, learned this week that the funds that they receive from the state will no longer be provided. The facility learned about the cuts after being notified by its managing unit, the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network.
The center features certified addiction professionals and rehabilitation programs specialized in assisting pregnant women or those who have young children.
The rehab center supports 12-step models that are implemented through traditional and intensive outpatient rehabilitation programs as well as a series of holistic treatment programs including acupuncture, life skills training sessions, parenting classes, yoga, massage and art therapy. Specialized services such as partial hospitalization are also offered by the center to the patients in need.
The representatives of the drug rehab center explained that they have reached out to members of the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network but no explanation about the funding cuts has been provided yet.
The representatives also stated that if there are any problems with the documents that are required from the facility, they should be easily fixable.
The staff at Mango Bay Retreat is currently asking the local community members for financial contributions that can help maintain the addiction treatment center operational.
A donation made by an anonymous source is going to be allowing the drug rehab center to continue to provide addiction treatment services to the women of the community for about another week.
