Avocy | Stands For Advocacy

Avocy's program includes both group and individual therapy as part of a wholistic, patient focused process. Our goal is to help patients in recovery take the next step towards independence while ensuring they have the support they need to thrive.

A word from our clinical director, Dani La Barrie

Helping patients has always been my passion. I've focused my energy and time to helping those who need me most. From the juvenile justice system in Broward to where I am today, it has always been about helping the patients.

I've started Avocy with the goal of helping bridge the chasm patients face at the end of their 90 day treatment programs. More often than I can count, I've seen patients on the road to success go astray once they were released from their treatment facilities from lack of support.

Avocy is here to change that. Everything we do is built around helping patients who've taken the first steps on their journey of recovery to build the support and community they need to succeed on this lifelong journey of recovery.
