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.
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 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.
