Beachway Therapy Center tries to provide home-like comforts and personalized care at a relatively reasonable price. Established in 2008, this 12-step-oriented Florida treatment center boasts a strong staff and commitment to one-on-one care.
Accommodations and Food
The main clinical center is a modern facility that features a large, well-lit central meeting area, private offices and a green-walled “therapy studio” for yoga, art therapy and music therapy. In typical Florida fashion, the residents live separately from the clinical facility. The residences mimic typical beachside apartment living, with flat-screen TVs, small kitchens and shared bedrooms with twin beds. Each week clients get $65 to spend on supervised grocery trips. Cooking is done in the apartments, and clients often cook and eat dinners together. No computers are allowed, but residents can bring video game systems.
Treatment and Staff
Inpatient treatment at Beachway often begins with detox at another location chosen by either the staff, who arrange all the logistics, or the client. Beachway prides itself on its low client-to-staff ratio, with each therapist managing just four to eight patients’ cases. Treatment plans are catered to individual clients’ needs and cater to a range of dual diagnoses, including eating disorders, bipolar disorder and sex addiction. Everyone receives at least two therapy sessions per week, and those who need more can receive additional sessions. Group offerings include relapse prevention, art and music therapy, psychodrama, family dynamics, self-esteem building and process groups, as well as special sessions on grief and loss. Almost all the therapists on staff have earned Master’s degrees.
Beachway subscribes to the disease model of addiction and the 12 steps but also offers a specialized Christian treatment track that is completely optional. The faith-based programming here doesn’t seem as intense as that provided by some of the Orange County rehabs that are linked to the Saddleback Church, but for some more laid-back believers, that might not be a bad thing. If anything, Beachway’s Christian slant is minimized: the Facebook page quotes Jesus and the Buddha in equal measure, and people of all faiths can gain from holistic treatment practices such as art therapy, music therapy, meditation and yoga.
Like most rehabs, Beachway also makes a point of introducing its residents to good clean fun. In addition to attending NA and AA picnics and conferences in the community, residents can go snorkeling, surfing, fishing or bowling during recreation time. At Beachway’s onsite spa, massages, manicures and chiropractic services are included, while pedicures and hair styling are also available for an extra fee. Visitation takes place on Saturdays and Sundays, and family members are usually allowed to make their first visit on the second weekend of treatment.
A gradual step-down into aftercare is integral to Beachway’s treatment model. Even clients who have already completed inpatient treatment at another rehab can take advantage of The Next Right Step, an intensive aftercare program involving three group and one individual counseling sessions each week, advanced life skills courses and a supervised sober living environment.
Beachway Therapy Center has all the components of a solid treatment facility, offering a well-rounded mix of 12-step recovery, holistic modalities and dual diagnosis support. It’s also willing to work with most insurance providers and sometimes taps into a scholarship reserve to assist those without coverage.
