“My experience at The Sylvia Brafman Mental Health Center can only be summed up in one word. MIRACLE. I went in bratty, narcissistic, addicted, and full of self-hate. After my 90 days, I am a completely transformed new person. I've found meaning in life for the first time. Sylvia Brafman taught me how to use coping skills and break unhealthy habits emotionally and physically.”

– Christina H.

“The whole SBMH center is phenomenal! Ben and Jaime are amazing! They sincerely care about each of their patient’s well-being, mental health and recovery. Such a comfortable, warm welcoming and family friendly facility. Definitely recommend!”

The length of your stay will depend on the amount of help you need and how much time you can dedicate to treatment. Remember, there is no such thing as getting “too much” help for a problem though. Ideally, you will attend our partial hospitalization program (PHP), followed by the intensive inpatient program (IOP), which is 3 hours per day, 3 days a week minimum. After that you will be eligible to begin our outpatient treatment with one 90-minute session once a week. The total span of treatment can be as much as 90 days. Some patients continue with outpatient for longer, others may commit less time to treatment. We ask only that you consider the importance of recovery and keep an open mind.

The Silvia Brafman Mental Health Center works with most major health insurance providers. If you want to know what your plan covers, the easiest way is to give us a call or submit a form through our website for insurance benefits verification. This only takes about an hour, sometimes less. After that we’ll do a phone interview to better assess your challenges. This will empower you to make an informed decision about your mental health treatment. Feel free to call us directly or submit a form online for insurance verification and call for the assessment later. We regret that we cannot accept state-funded plans such as Medicaid or Medicare at this time, but we will be happy to provide you will referrals to programs that can.

Our system is very streamlined and efficient. We start with your phone assessment and insurance verification if you choose to use your insurance. After that comes clinical intake approval so we can greenlight your admission. Our admissions department will advise you on what to pack for treatment (and what not to pack) and answer any questions you have prior to admission. Once your admission is approved and the time comes, we’ll provide discrete ground transportation if needed and bring you to our mental health treatment center near Ft. Lauderdale. If you are from outside the area, we will be happy to pick up you up from Ft. Lauderdale Airport (FLL), Miami International Airport (MIA) or West Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). We can also pick you up from the Amtrak Station in Ft. Lauderdale or the Greyhound Bus Terminal.

It is important to understand that mental health disorders are something we work on for life, they aren’t simply cured overnight with a pill or a hypnosis session. The good news is that, yes, mental health treatment can work for you. The goal of treatment is it help you understand and manage your disorder. This is usually done through a combination of talk therapy, sometimes medication and behavioral and lifestyle changes. It is absolutely possible to recover from most mental illness and live a happy, fulfilling life as long as you are willing to follow advice and comply with recommendations. We have seen people who do, completely transform their lives. This is what we want for you or your loved one.
