Located in Delray Beach, Florida, Family Behavioral Center offers dual diagnosis care in an outpatient setting with a focus on substance abuse, behavioral health and eating disorders. Family Behavioral Center offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), which differ in terms of time commitment but resemble each other in terms of programming.
Treatment and Staff
FBC’s more intensive program is its PHP, which is comprised of group and some individual therapy five days a week with licensed counselors. Groups meet Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm, though Fridays usually wrap around 1 pm.
The facility also offers individualized treatment, where each client can choose their core curriculum to meet their specific needs. That means clients can choose to focus more on alcohol and drug abuse, on eating disorders, on mental and emotional issues or on a mix of the above. Though the daily schedule at FBC is mostly group therapy, clients also have access to individual and family counseling, and are encouraged to set up appointments to do so when desired.
PHP typically lasts for eight weeks, though this is largely determined by a client’s progress and needs. Towards the end of treatment, clients begin to scale down on group therapy, attending only from 9 am to 12:30 pm each day. FBC promotes the 12-step philosophy, and encourages clients to work with sponsors to become active in the local AA community.
A staff medical director oversees the programs at FBC and is available for consultation on an as-needed basis. Clients also meet with the staff psychiatrist during their initial evaluation. There is no detox offered at FBC, so all prospective clients must handle that phase prior to starting the program.
The on-staff nutritionist at FBC works with clients to develop healthy eating plans and promote sound dietary choices. And this resource is not limited to those seeking help for eating disorders—instead, it’s a core component of all treatment offerings. Everyone has access to private sessions with the nutritionist.
Much of FBC’s strength lies in the diversity of their program. Seeking to address not just drug and alcohol abuse but eating disorders and behavioral health issues as well, FBC’s treatment program is truly comprehensive.
Both of their programs include help from an on-staff nutritionist and access to one-on-one therapy at clients’ leisure. While their PHP is intense (taking up approximately 30 hours a week), it pays off by educating clients about addiction and offering the necessary 12-step support to set them on the road to recovery.
