Since 2015, we have been developing the substance of our program and what we want to deliver to the world at large, one family at a time. To say we are grateful and excited to have David join our team to share our vision with the world is an understatement. We are thrilled to walk this road together with him and his family, and blossom naturally. We are confident that he will represent us as we are, and how he is, and that should broaden our reach, strengthen our relationships, and expand our horizons."

About The Augustine Recovery Center:

The Augustine Recovery Center was founded in 2015 in beautiful, historic St. Augustine, Florida by Jason and Lauren Chane. Our full continuum of care includes detoxification, residential, PHP, IOP, OP, and aftercare programming for men offering 12 Step immersion and accountability with a laser focus on trauma. Ongoing case management and sober living are also part of our offering.

This year, we will be opening our Women’s facility in downtown St. Augustine. It has been in the works for several years, and will finally open its doors in 2020. It will be a 16 bed facility, offering the full continuum of care as well, including detoxification, residential, PHP, IOP, OP, aftercare, ongoing case management and sober living.

The Augustine Recovery Center, as a family owned and operated facility, believes that the experience a client and their family have with us is a unique and special opportunity. We believe that all who come to us have the opportunity to recover fully and live a vibrant, purpose-driven life. We offer such a robust continuum of services because we are committed to a long-term relationship with our clients and their families. We realize that a family may only have one real chance financially, to help their loved one, and we want to make it count.
