  • Multi-faceted. A bit unorganized, treatment not individually-based. Treatment included medication-assisted treatment, which was preferable.

    Aside from nursing staff, all the staff I met were former addicts and were well-meaning and wanted to help. However, I don't think they are adequately trained to deal with all types of drug withdrawal. A weakness was the inadequate security given the location of the Cottages. It is in a unsafe neighborhood. I cannot say this strongly enough. Do not send your loved one here. The womans facility at the Cottages is in an unsafe neighborhood... My loved one was in a one-to-one situation with an aide at the facility while going through withdrawal and was still able to get away to get drugs and worse. Stay away! I don't want anyone to go through what we went through at this facility.

  • Completed the seaside program last year and my life has been turned around for the better. At seaside they get you back on your feet and help you find a happy and healthy trajectory for your life and get you on the path to achieving those goals so when you graduate the program you are well on your way to sustainable lifestyle and better future.

  • Too many negative things to list. They didn't seem to care if my daughter wasn't willing to stay clean, or to help guide her through her problems. She has relapsed many times.

  • Our experience at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches was nothing short of miraculous. After sending a loved one to multiple facilities for addiction, my brother was finally able to get clean at BHOPB in 2015. The staff and treatment at this facility were top notch and the family week was a great way to understand how it is possible for family and friends to be enablers. BHOPB provided instruction and plans on how to support my brother after treatment, without enabling him to revert back to his own ways. When my brother first arrived to treatment we were worried because he was very pessimistic and not willing to participate. But after a couple days he finally started to open up and trust the program which changed EVERYTHING. He started going to group, participating in activities, writing in his journal, going to the gym, doing everything he possibly could and it all worked! It was like he was a new person! My brother had always mentioned how the other facilitates he went to were just going through the motions - getting people in and getting them out - but he said BHOPB was different. The staff took the time to get to know my brother, to welcome him and to make him feel at home. The one person he raved about is Chef who went out of his way at each meal service to ask every patient how they were doing one on one. So, if you have tried everything and nothing has worked and you or your loved one is truly ready to commit to recovery, then give BHOPB a chance... This facility literally saved our brother's life!
    Great structure and focus. Some down time for reflecting would be nice. I liked how they mixed alcoholics with addicts and age groups were mixed as well. It was very eye opening that this disease is cunning, baffling and powerful and does not discriminate.

    They are totally involved and focused on helping the patients. They are all caring and well trained staff. They also helped with housing and going back to school.

  • This place is a dump and you should run in the other direction. Facility is in the ghetto of Lake Worth (Not Ft. Worth) FL. Treatment sucks, food sucks...They dispense meds like candy and push them on you. Atmosphere is like a prison..No joke. All treatment centers are not like this so keep looking.
