ABOUT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PALM BEACH – THE RECOVERY CENTER FOR MEN
Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches (BHOPB), a luxury 12-step addiction treatment center, offers recovery for men at a sprawling, well-appointed stucco facility in North Palm Beach.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
BHOPB specializes in co-occurring disorders, which it treats using evidence-based practices. In addition, there are supplemental therapies twice weekly including EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), hypnotherapy, acupuncture, equine therapy, massage, and meditation. Intake and a five-day detox take place at a health clinic-like location in Lake Worth. Clients are then triaged into the gender-specific program.
Day-to-day life looks something like this: after breakfast, clients attend a one-hour, coed community meeting. Following that, clients attend group sessions that are the foundation of treatment and provide a forum for discussing a range of disorders, including alcohol addiction, sex addiction, chemical dependency, and anger management. The day ends with an AA or NA meeting.
The clinical staff at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches is comprised of credentialed and experienced medical doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and clinical therapists. As experts in their respective fields, each brings years of training and experience to those attending the facility.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Notably, residential accommodations are based on tiered pricing. Tier one offers basic, 70’s-style coed condos. Tier Two includes the women’s and men’s residential centers set in lush tropical landscapes, and the top tier offers oceanfront seaside resort residences in West Palm Beach and Singer Island. Top tier clients detox separately from the lower tiers. Meals include organic ingredients and are prepared by gourmet chefs.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
BHOPB claims that 69 percent of its patients who successfully complete their treatment program do not relapse within the first six months of recovery; the industry standard for successful post-treatment recovery is 16 to 20 percent. Stats are subject to interpretation, but alumni who were interviewed by Best-rehabs.com uniformly gave high marks to the men’s program. Alum D.G.I. gave across-the-board stellar ratings to the facility, crediting treatment there with his six-year sobriety. D.G.I. told Best-rehabs.com that the center “provided an excellent foundation.” Another alum, William, told Best-rehabs.com: “This program surpassed my expectations and provided me with everything; mental, emotional, SPIRITUAL, and even physical exercise.”
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Most family and friends of clients said they benefited from the family programs. One anonymous family member told Best-rehabs.com: “The facility is located in a very serene atmosphere and and the staff and Doctors are very personable and caring.”
However, one anonymous family member told Best-rehabs.com that there were “too many people, too few staff,” and that treatment was “too general.”
BHOPB has the admissions capability and staff to process clients’ insurance as payment for services. In fact, before admitting a client into their facilities, the staff verifies a candidate’s medical coverage. The facility also offers financial assistance through Prosper Healthcare Lending, the premier financing company in the behavioral health industry.
