When Life's Overwhelming Treatment Shouldn't be!


About Frankie’s Place


Who We Are

Frankie’s Place is a vision that was created in honor of Frank Alfred Cavaliere, who passed away August 2, 2013 at age 43 due to addiction. Frankie’s Place was established to offer services to people who are suffering with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. 

Frankie’s sister, Michelle Cavaliere is the founder, President/CEO and Clinical Director of Frankie’s Place. She has dedicated her life to the Behavioral Health Field and developed programs to offer new and innovative services. Her goal is to provide the addiction population with a wide variety of new and traditional researched approaches while utilizing out of the box treatments. Michelle’s mission is to provide clinical care, counseling, prevention and recovery for addicts so they aren’t alone in their journey.

Michelle’s daughter Madison Piorkowski, is the Vice President of HR, Marketing Director/Director of Communications, and a Case Manager for Frankie's Place.  She is involved in community resourcing to advocate for improving the Behavioral Health Field. Madison provides platforms to inform the population on relationship and partnership building. Madison’s research passion is in Leadership Development. She is the inspiration of Frankie’s Angels which is a leadership program teaching and training the youth population in a variety of skills such as public speaking, grant writing, advocacy, fund raising, and relationship building. 


What Makes Us Different

At Frankie’s Place, we pride ourselves on evolving and taking The FP-Way. By allowing for new scientific evidenced-based research treatment modalities to be incorporated into our clinical practices, we are able to provide the latest clinical approaches for our clients.  While approaching the treatment of substance abuse  and mental health issues through The FP-Way, we can adapt to the complexities of behavioral health field and improve our ability to meet individualized needs for our clients' success. 

The FP Way is a treatment technique in which we focus on the complex interplay between drugs, mental health and the environment. All clients receive a thorough psychological examination prior to admission to determine whether any secondary issues are contributing to their primary condition. 

We offer a collective approach by incorporating individual therapy towards substance abuse and any secondary treatment needed for the client’s success. Our holistic wellness foundation provides insight into how to achieve happiness and healthy living on a daily basis. 

The FP-Way educates the clients on their challenges and builds upon their individual resources. By building upon client’s abilities and strengths allows them to stay clean one day at a time. Let's face it, getting clean is easy but staying clean will require doing things a different way by building new memory points for healthier mental and behavioral habits.
