“More than 30 teams of five people each played dodgeball,” said Meredith Turnbull of The Gardens at Lake Worth, who organized the event that has grown since its inception to have a bi-annual community presence and expanded invitation list. “This event is about local treatment providers supporting each other, helping current and past clients learn to have fun in recovery, and the importance of giving back to our community. All vital components to providing quality client care.”

The Gardens at Lake Worth Dodgeball Tournament included attendees from local sober living facilities, clubhouses and various recovery groups. Proceeds benefited the Salvation Army of Palm Beach County. Event sponsors included Destination Hope, Serenity House Detox, RECO Intensive, Achieve Behavioral Health, Simple Path Recovery, Recovery in the Light, and Sprout Health Group.

The Salvation Army is a non-profit known for giving back to the substance abuse and mental health community. The organization offers rehabilitation for addicts and alcoholics with little or no monetary means, other than a desire to recover from an addiction that causes physical, emotional and spiritual issues. The Harbor Light programs available at their Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARC) provide spiritual, social and emotional assistance to men and women who are not able to cope with the consequences and challenges brought about by drug or alcohol abuse. A Salvation Army ARC can provide residential housing, work, and group or individual therapy, preparing participants to re-enter society and be gainfully employed.

The Gardens provides evidence-based treatment programs to help those suffering with addiction take their lives back. Customized programs get to the root of one’s addiction to increase the chance for long-term success. Admissions counselors are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The facility is located at 4828 Lake Worth Road in Greenacres, FL and serves populations in need throughout the state of Florida. The Gardens at Lake Worth is a proud member of the Sprout Health Group. For more information, please visit TheGardensRehab.com or call toll-free (844) 357-3422.
