Singer Island Treatment CenterThe Basics

Located in beautiful Palm Beach County, Singer Island Treatment Center is a fairly large facility that offers recovery in a lush tropical setting. Singer Island is a dual diagnosis program with many amenities and can treat up to 65 residents at a time.

Accommodations and Food

Residents at Singer Island stay in simple bungalow-style apartments with two and occasionally three to a room. The beds are all twin-sized, and each apartment comes with a private bathroom, couch, end table and kitchenette. Women and men’s rooms are kept separate, as are their treatment sessions—most interaction between the genders comes only during select recreational activities. The living quarters also have sitting areas near the beach with picnic tables and lounge chairs. There is also a spa on the premises where residents can enjoy massages and acupuncture services. All clients cook their own meals after first receiving a stipend from their house managers to purchase groceries.

Treatment and Staff

When it comes to treatment, options abound at Singer Island. While it addresses the core concepts of the 12 steps, it is not as bound to them as many other facilities are. Instead, Singer Island offers dual diagnosis support that embraces multiple methods to determine the causes of addiction. Clients have group and individual therapy, equine therapy and art and music classes. They also participate in a wellness program that includes chiropractic services, massages and acupuncture, along with supervised work outs under a staff counselor in their on-site gym.

There is no medical detox offered at Singer Island, though the facility will help set up a referral for residents to attend the Lumiere program (located about 25 minutes away in Jupiter) if need be. Singer Island has a medical doctor on staff available as needed, and all therapy is conducted by Master’s-level counselors and therapists. They also boast a large team of specialty therapists who handle the equine, art and therapeutic services.

The facility takes advantage of their tranquil setting, with plenty of opportunities for clients to enjoy personal time and therapeutic activities right on the beach. Singer Island believes the optimum stay for their residents is 90 days, though most stay between 30 and 45 days.

Extras

With a beachside setting and state-of-the-art gym facilities, clients at Singer Island will not suffer from a lack of on-site activities—all with palm-tree-laden views. In terms of off-site activities, Singer Island staff often lead trips downtown for shopping, movies and dinners out on the town. An added bonus is that Singer Island offers free treatment to those who relapse after going through the full program.

In Summary

In some ways, Singer Island offers some of the fixings of a luxury program at a much lower cost. Because this is a program that stresses personal accountability by having residents prepare their own meals and stay active, clients are bound to learning a slew of positive life skills.

  1. Hi Lizzy,I am a newbie to your site and it is really a blessing to find. It is so good to talk and interact with people wo have “walked the talk” as you stated. Forgive my question if it is listed here somewhere and I have not yet located it, but is there a similiar site to yours that pertains to high blood pressure? I have both of these conditions, and could also recieve much benefit from a site related to this topic as well. You do such a fantastic job with your presentation of information, and I would like to say thanks for your breaking it down so even I can understand it!

    I wanted to send a simple message in order to express gratitude to you for all the fantastic steps you are giving at this website. My particularly long internet look up has now been compensated with high-quality facts and techniques to share with my pals. I would claim that most of us readers are unquestionably lucky to live in a fabulous community with so many special people with helpful opinions. I feel somewhat grateful to have seen your entire website and look forward to many more brilliant moments reading here. Thanks again for everything.

  3. I did the 30 day program for alcohol. Singer Island is not a country club experience, but if you participate in the program and cooperate with your fellow clients it will be effective in establishing sobriety. Most of the clients are in their twenties or thirties, and many have been deep into the drug culture. But there are also a few “old timers” in their fifties and sixties. Client demographics cut across all races and financial backgrounds—we had a CEO, a policeman, and a military officer, along with second- and third-time drug offenders facing significant jail time when they got home.

    The therapists and counselors are knowledgeable and professional. They do have a high caseload, so you usually have only one individual meeting with them per week; but you have a couple of additional group sessions with them each week. Guest presenters have strong group lessons and most of them are worthwhile; some are spectacular. Technicians run the living quarters with enough discipline to keep a safe environment. Almost every employee is a recovering addict who has turned their life to helping other addicts—they know what you are going through and help with equal measures of empathy and tough love. The schedule is designed to keep clients busy and focused on recovery. In addition to 6 hours of classes and meetings at the treatment center, busses take clients to AA or NA meetings each evening. Saturday schedule is the same as the weekdays. Sundays include church in the morning and an outing in the afternoon, often to the nearby beach. A unique aspect of SI is that the living quarters surround a common patio area in the middle. Days begin and end with clients conducting self-directed meditations and meetings under the grass-roof hut. If you and your fellow clients are dedicated to achieving sobriety then these gatherings are some of the most powerful and effective aspects of treatment.

    While the SI treatment facilities are top-notch (including the Wellness Center with outstanding gym, massage, acupuncture, and yoga opportunities), the living quarters are in comparison subpar. It is a 1960’s beach motel or apartment building that shows its age. Maintenance has been sparse and you learn to live with minor inconveniences such as a missing closet door, broken desk lamp, or rusting shower head. Some of the room air conditioners can’t keep up with the south Florida summer heat. Apartment cleanliness suffers because client turnover is high and the maids never get an empty apartment to do a thorough scrubdown. Two or 3 or even 4 clients are in each apartment. You get a budget with which to shop for groceries every week and cook your own meals. Most roommates alternate cooking dinner for the entire apartment. On Sunday evenings a pot luck dinner happens outside in the patio area.

    Would I recommend SI to a friend? Yes, if that friend is looking for a structured treatment program that unplugs you from the world and enforces a space to heal with the help of a trained staff. But you need a tolerance for living in somewhat spartan and cramped quarters, willingness to cook meals and cleanup afterwards, and patience to endure the constant “hurry up and wait” that’s involved in bussing clients between the residence and the treatment center. Most importantly, SI is best for the person who doesn’t dwell on the negative and is willing to proactively reach out to help his fellow clients, thereby also helping himself heal.

  4. cheap insurance on

    a rebelde e muito legal e divertida eu gosto muito dela por que tem varios pessonagem divertido tipo a alice eo pedro ea carla e tomas ea roderta eo diego e os otros da escola e tenho que adimitir todos e engrasados kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk…………… ? ? (*.*)

  5. DON JOSÉ : LE MANDO OTRO ABa‰sCAsuÃtEdo buscaba cobijo chancleteando desfallecido. Estaba francamente grave. Huía incansable jalando kilómetros. Le llamaban morocho, negro, ñapango o perdedor. Querían robarle su único tesoro: una vieja walkiria xerografiada y zarca.

  6. This facility is a scam. The post $11,500 for 30 days on their website is basically criminal, the actual cost my insurance company was billed was over $40,000 for thirty days of rehab. Sounds like a big time insurance scam to me. Total bullshit when the same people continue to reenter their bullshit center every year. Bunch of thieves.
