Reviews at a Glance

Areas of Focus
Gestalt Therapy and Drug Rehab

Currently, there are many addiction rehab centers throughout the US that employ programs which utilize Gestalt therapy during the recovery process. One of these being Delray Recovery Center. During the counseling and therapy sessions involved in the recovery process, the therapist typically challenges the client to answer specific questions. This is done in order to increase the client’s awareness of their feelings. Additionally, it enables them to develop and use a strong ability to face the problems and situations they encounter in their daily lives.


The first step to a lifetime of sobriety is to discontinue substance use – a challenge which typically requires a safe and supportive medically supervised detoxification. Depending on the duration and type of substance abuse, detoxification can be a brief process that will set the stage for rehabilitation or a longer, intense period of recovery requiring medical supervision. The Delray Recovery Center can diagnose these services as needed, and provide the treatment program to help regain control over life.

    The Delray Recovery Center’s triple-board certified psychiatrist, Dr. Darryl Appleton, recognizes that many individuals with a history of substance abuse or alcoholism attempt to self medicate in order to manage underlying problems with depression, anxiety, and/or trauma. Frequently, such underlying problems need to be dealt with therapeutically prior to addressing the more tangible and discernible substance abuse. The Delray Recovery Center is prepared to work with each individual to address these underlying problems through multiple treatment options. In fact, The Delray Recovery Center is one of the first treatment centers to offer the new, ground-breaking rTMS magnetic stimulation treatment designed to target and treat co-occurring disorders without the use of psychotropic medications.
