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