Behavioral Health of The Palm BeachesThe Basics

Since 1997, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches—which began as a single, 12-bed facility—has blossomed into a recovery conglomerate made up of six treatment centers in the Greater Palm Beach area of Southeast Florida: The Recovery Center for Women, The Recovery Center for Men, The Cottages, Seaside Palm Beach Luxury Rehab, Seaside Palm Beach Executive Rehab and Mental Health Rehab of The Palm Beaches. Each provide specialized care for people struggling with any number of issues that full under the behavioral health umbrella. From drug or gambling addiction to trauma recovery, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches is a one-stop shop for addicts, abuse survivors and those battling mental illness.

Accommodations and Food

Though there are several programs and locations to choose from, clients seeking help with chemical dependency will generally begin their journey to wellness at the organization’s detox facility in Lake Worth, Florida—a hospital-like setting designed for short-term (five-to-seven days) physical preparation before entering one of BHOPB’s six treatment centers. All locations reap the benefits of the beautiful Florida sunshine, with plush grounds and clean living quarters, so the difference between the facilities comes down to gender, profession and budget.

Those with good insurance will have the option to chose between The Recovery Center (for Women or Men), both just minutes from the beach and featuring palm tree-lined and well-manicured campuses, mid-scale homestyle furnishings and modern hardwood floors (the women’s facility sports a fountain-adorned lanai while the men’s comes equipped with a swimming pool). Residents must purchase their own food and prepare their own meals.

Clients with deeper pockets and a taste for the upscale will be better served at BHOTPB’s luxury treatment tier— Seaside, which provides five star accommodations, a private chef, made-to-order meals and oceanfront views. As an added bonus, Seaside residents are driven around whenever necessary in an SUV (as opposed to a van).

With no addict left behind, BHOPB’s third treatment option is for those seeking solid recovery on a shoestring. The Cottages is a co-ed and fairly basic facility; like its higher-end, gender-specific sister and brother programs, residents must buy and prepare their own meals on a weekly budget.

Treatment and Staff

While there may be creature comfort variations in BHOPB’s living facilities, all is fair in love and recovery when it comes to their treatment and supplemental therapy options. All programs offer clients access to EMDR, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, massage and meditation in addition to group therapy and 12-step meetings. The daily routine for all clients is also essentially the same: breakfast at 7 am and then off to co-ed community groups with residents from all locations. Then clients are broken up into various same-sex groups, which cover a plethora of disorders and subjects, including depression, anxiety management, dual diagnosis, sex addiction, eating disorders, chemical dependency, anger management, gambling addiction and codependency.

There is a comprehensive clinical and medical staff who treat residents of Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches. These psychiatrists, psychologists and Master’s-level therapists are rounded out by holistic professionals in the field of equine therapy, writing therapy, personal training and nutrition. There are also two spiritual advisors, EMDR specialists and, of course, several addiction treatment specialists.

Extras

Specialized treatments like Light Sound Neurotherapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy and chiropractic services are available for an additional fee.

In Summary

While the locations and amenities may vary, the natural environment and treatment programs at all BHOPB subsidiaries are fairly similar. However, no matter which way you slice it, real recovery from addiction and mental health struggles isn’t cheap and it definitely isn;’t in this case: the luxury option, at $80,000 a month, has monthly fees that more than triple the cost of BHOPB’s base level of care. But for the average person, BHOPB’s program options and alternative therapies offer variety and quality at a competitive price. Plus, location, location, location.

  1. I went to BHOP for the first time in 2012, went back again in 2014 and it was 2 totally different experiences!
    From what I heard, the owner passed away and his children took over. Everything they have done to save money (like switch out all their nursing staff) will eventually make them loose money in the end.
    I have NEVER been to a place so horrible. The second time I went, in 2014, I also left after a week later. They also threatened to hold my money, cell phone and all valuables they locked up. They refused to let me call my mom until later that day, they called and spoke to her before letting me call. Obviously they told my mother MULTIPLE lies. That I only wanted to leave because I met some guy I wanted to “run away and get high with”. My mom knew it was bs because I was begging to just be transferred to another treatment center, ANY treatment center my mom picked besides that one. The staff cared more about flirting with each other than they did about clients. Any employee there treated clients like an annoyance. The most DISREPECTFUL staff I have ever encountered. They LIED to me multiple times as well. A tech even bitched about how she was tired of the intake people promising lies over the phone, so they would have to be the ones to deal with it later. She said they are actually trained to say and promise whatever to get you on that plane to come. I am honestly surprised this place is still open. I would be shocked if they stay open another 2 years.

  2. Not set up for law enforcement, even though they claim to be. The down back staff from nurses to cafeteria personal , techs , doctors and counselors are excellent , the administration does not care about problem kids that can use there addiction for an excuse to cause disruptive/disrespectful behavior to both staff,residents and volunteers. Even the tech say that there hands are tied. If your law enforcement they, expect you to turn the other way until you have enough of the punk crap and what to leave, then they come out of the walls and want to do something .To late. If your law enforcement look for a rehab strictly for law enforcement .

    The Cottages was a waste of time and money for our family. After our daughter finally agreeing to seek help, I decided on the Cottages of Palm Beach. To make a long story short, they replaced the alcohol with prescription and natural drugs. Provided very little counselling during detox and then released her with no after treatment care. After she stopped taking the drugs, she was back abusing alcohol again. Avoid at all cost.

  4. I also wish I could give negative stars. They lie. They lie on the phone and at the facility. Admissions lies in all fx, that’s a fact but I was told i was going to one fx and they put me in the other. I was in the ghetto of lake worth with some really great women but quite a few unsavory characters. There was very little supervision. I witnessed several injuries on the unkept property. The nursing staff is a joke, they sub contract and the nurses don’t know the facility, I was given the wrong meds, allowed to walk out with them after a two hour med line wait. They screwed up another patients meds and she went to the hospital. Several people had to be hospitalized, due to their lack of ability to properly detox people with medical problems and injuries on their property.
    They allowed patients to run “aa” meetings, without any supervision, not even a tech. It was a dangerous situation, not to mention it was not a meeting at all.
    The food was so gross. It literally made me sick and I couldn’t eat for days. They just kept giving me shots of meds for nausea. I’ve kicked so many times, in so many ways and have been able to eat the second week no problem. Thank god I detoxed elsewhere.
    They break hippa constantly, I’m not even sure if the staff understands what it is.
    When I tried to leave, after not eating, being afraid for my safety, sitting in a “group” with a clinical director talking about the secret like it was the be all and end all (I’ll make a poster about being sober and I magically will!) , and being lied to about transfers continually, they lied and threatened again. I worked at a facility, I’ve taken classes towards my cadc, I know my rights. They threatened to keep my things that they locked up, they refused to let me call anyone to leave, they tried to make me write a stupid letter and present it to a group before I could leave, they said they call the cops if you leave ama. It was insane. I was finally able to escape after talking to another director who said my “evil addiction” (is that a clinical term?) was what making me act this way. Not their subpar (and that is putting it nicely) treatment and groups, or the lack of care, or that I was in the wrong facility and was continually told I would be transferred the next day, or that they said I could web chat and call my toddler (who, in the far superior detox I went to in NJ, was able to speak with me several times a day). No , it wasn’t that, it was my evil addiction lol.
    Please PLEASE don’t send loved ones here, don’t go here. There are so many Florida model rehabs you can go to or alternative treatment, even narcanon would be preferable.
    They tried to keep my parents money, it took months of no phone calls and fighting with the cc company. They finally refunded the portion unused. Though, the contract we signed was for another facility
    I will post this review anywhere I can. No one should have to go through this place. No one should be afraid to leave ama in an unsafe, unprofessional environment.
    This is just a brief synopsis of the insanity I encountered there, feel free to message me for more details, or other facilities I can recommend if you’re considering this place.

    • Thank you for you informative and candid review of Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches. It so hard to know what is true and what is not true on the web. What I tend to do is look for a patten of a lot of negative reviews or very detailed negative reviews just like yours, because I don’t believe people would spend too much time writing very long fake reviews.

      I was looking at places for my wife to go and I read your review. Then I read all of their rehab responses to everyone who wrote negative stuff here. But all of their responses were all written in the last few hours ago today? Makes me question why they decided to write all of their responses today to everyone? Their responses seem canned and did not ring true to me. So I looked for more reviews about them and found another really bad one too. After reading this other review your review I definitely will not be considering them as a possible rehab for my wife.

    • I was curious to see if the facility looks any better since I was a patient. Sounds like they are same horrible people I dealt with. They know nothing about how to detox people rapid detox is not a safe way to get off any type of drugs your better staying home and being sick then to go the this place. Horrible staff they will say anything to get you to show up. When you arrive you realize your in the middle of the ghetto. Staff are ex drug addicts which would be fine if they knew what they were doing. If you attempt to leave they will refuse to give you your belongings. There are plenty of good rehabs this is not one of them. Keep anyone else with a drug problem away from this place. During phase 2 of treatment they send you into the ghetto grocery shopping. Most degrading experience of my life. By the time I left this place I was skin and bones and severely ill physically and mentally. They should be closed down I’ve seenever state run facilities better than this place. The only good thing that came out this place is that I found another great rehab that helped me get off the drugs I was on. I don’t see how anyone could give this place a good review

  5. THIS IS A HORRIBLE REHAB. THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT THE MONEY NOT THE PATIENTS!!!! VERY UNPROFESSIONAL THEY HAVE THERAPIST RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ADDICTION AND WHAT A PERSON NEEDS. MY HUSBAND WAS THERE FOR 6 WEEKS- THEY GOT INSURANCE TO PAY FOR AND NEVER GAVE HIM A FOLLOW UP TREATMENT PLAN,THEY NEVER GAVE HIM A DIAGNOSIS, WHICH CLEARLY HE HAS MENTAL ILLNESS ON TOP OF THE ADDICTION. OH AND THEY SENT HIM HOME WITH ALL KINDS OF MEDICATION AFTER THEY DETOXED HIM FOR SIMILAR MEDICATION HE WAS ADDICTED TO. HE RELAPSED AS SOON AS HE GOT OUT. THEY NEVER CALLED ME FOR FAMILY COUNSELING, I COULD NEVER GET A HOLD OF ANYONE THERE, EVERY TIME I CALLED I GOT ONE ANSWERING MACHINE AFTER ANOTHER. SCAM, SCAM. THEY OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

  6. This is a horrible review and filled with incorrect information. This website is obviously funded by another facility or is a sub contractor with multiple treatment. There is no problem in making a living off recovery, but please use ethical principles. If you are being funded by a treatment center or accept any payment whatsoever the right thing to do would be to put a disclaimer.

    • Atrocious. Unprofessional. They’re not upfront on facts. Very important facts. Psych med pushers. Don’t send your family here.

      • I agree. I just got back from BHOP. 8 out of 10 nurses must hate their life and take it out on the patients with dirty looks, arguments, evasiveness & accusations. One told me I was lying about what time I woke up. If I needed an aspirin and it wasn’t “med time” they acted all put out & disgusted that I came in. I was highly over medicated on Librium & anxiety meds & muscle relaxers in detox & didn’t come out of it for about 2 weeks. When in intake they didn’t believe my meds were mine even though I brought the bottle from home so they didn’t even log my antidepressants as needed meds. I went 5 days without my Effexor & Wellbutrin, kicking & screaming at them all the way. I really needed to put up a stink to get anyone to listen. I would not send a family member there…it is too traumatic. I got through 30 days but I’ve been to better facilities.
