New Jersey is in the grips of an opioid epidemic that is destroying lives and communities, but one local doctor is helping to change that through a more compassionate approach to addiction treatment. Dr. Michael Rogers from South Jersey Family Medicine has joined Rally Point, an intensive inpatient drug and alcohol treatment center located in West Palm Beach, Fla., to give patients from New Jersey a connection to home.

The old fashioned idea that addicts must “hit rock bottom” and be cut off from loved ones before getting help isn’t a part of Rally Point’s culture. The center’s addiction treatment programs are tailored to the patient’s unique needs, and based on love and inclusion in a family-like atmosphere. Patients get that sense of family not only from Dr. Rogers, but also his son-in-law and Rally Point’s CEO Chris Sheehan.

“One of the things I enjoy most about being at Rally Point is working with Chris and the wonderful staff,” said Dr. Rogers. “I think our family atmosphere helps patients from my home state feel more at ease and receptive to treatment.”

Rally Point’s location is another major appeal for northern patients. Located in the heart of South Florida, Rally Point is able to offer unique services like adventure therapy, group outdoor activities, yoga/meditation, art therapy, music therapy, and on-site fishing thanks to its year-round tropical weather. Rally Point’s facilities offer all the comforts of home including a full kitchen, air-conditioning, washer & dryer, flat screen HDTVs, swimming pool, hot tub, therapy dog, and much more.

If you or someone you know has an opioid addiction, traveling out of state for treatment offers a variety of benefits like fewer distractions, increased privacy, and more specialized services. Visit today to learn more about their addiction treatment programs.
