HeadWaters at Origins

HeadWaters at Origins West Palm Beach Florida

HeadWaters at Origins offers an extraordinary, patient-centered addiction treatment option for executives and other individuals of high net worth in the professional service sector. Our clinical staff draws on a deep understanding of the unique circumstances and requirements of this discerning patient and their family. HeadWaters’ multifaceted approach employs the full range of available treatment modalities in order to customize a highly-individualized plan for physical, spiritual and emotional healing.

The clinical treatment facilities for clients of HeadWaters are situated to ensure the utmost privacy. An elegantly appointed residence overlooking an expansive, private waterfront is “home” for HeadWaters patients when they are not involved in clinical treatment. This high amenity environment provides a quiet place for healing and recovery while patients are not involved in clinical treatment.


Origins Behavioral Healthcare owns and operates five substance abuse treatment facilities in Texas and Florida, including Hannah’s House, Origins Recovery Centers in South Padre Island, Hanley Center at Origins, and Gate Lodge at Origins.

HeadWaters at Origins, which is the subject of this review, is set in West Palm Beach, Fla. and offers an exclusive residential program for adult men and women who require a discreet treatment experience. The program provides two separate tracks: one for individuals of high net worth and a second for doctors, lawyers, pilots, and other licensed professionals. Clients with co-occurring disorders are also treated, and medically monitored detox services are offered on-site.


All clients entering one of Origin’s treatment programs receive a comprehensive assessment to determine the appropriate course of care.

Treatment is highly individualized and combines 12-step methods with evidence-based practices. Therapeutic modalities include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), cognitive restructuring, motivational interviewing, dual-focus group therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), biofeedback, and neurofeedback. Clients also receive psychotherapy, psychiatric, and psychological services.

Holistic techniques are another important component of treatment and include acupuncture, meditation, various forms of massage (Thai, deep tissue, hot stone, and Swedish), yoga, Reiki, somatic breathing, and personal training.

The facility works individually with the families of each client to incorporate them into treatment. Additionally, comprehensive aftercare support is available to all successful graduates, which includes an exclusive 12-month recovery support group developed for clients of Origins.


The treatment team consists of physicians, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, addictionologists, certified addiction counselors, spiritual counselors, nutritionists, and holistic practitioners. The facility offers 24-hour nursing care.


The luxurious and intimate 14-bed facility offers well-appointed private rooms and daily housekeeping. Other amenities include a swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, a jogging path, and a walking trail. Clients are treated to five-star gourmet meals and regular trips to the beach.


The sole client review received by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing granted a five-star rating for both accommodations and amenities, and meals and nutrition, but only a two-star rating for treatment effectiveness. Residing at the facility at the time of this writing, D.J.P. remarked that the luxuriousness of the facility – while appreciated – did not make up for the lacking services and treatment options.

Reviews on the facility’s Facebook page, which accounts for Origins Behavioral Healthcare as a whole (as opposed to this facility in particular) are very positive with a 4.6-star average from 162 reviewers. [1]


The two loved ones who were surveyed by Best-rehabs.com at the time of this writing gave HeadWaters at Origins mostly positive reviews. Both respondents awarded the facility four or five out of five stars for its family participation, its connectivity and visitor policies, its cleanliness, its counseling options, its treatment of co-occurring disorders, and its staff’s level of treatment and experience. While one reviewer reported a satisfactory experience all-around, the other complained about the rehab’s high cost.


Fees start at $75,000 per month, and some private insurance plans are accepted.

  • Considering the 30 day average cost of $80,000, there are many areas of needed improvement. The primary therapists and group therapists are probably the best you will find which was a plus. Organization, scheduling, and communication between departments need completely revamped for Origins to be recommended to anyone I know. God forbid If I ever had to go into rehab again, I'd go elsewhere to avoid the headache of dealing with the incompetent non-therapeutic staff at HeadWaters.

  • I am currently a patient here right now- feel free to ask me questions. Facilities, food, and some staff are top notch. Too much emphasis on AA which is free. Clinically, too rushed and not enough 1:1 therapy available for the price tag. Gym is like a Motel 8. Upper management too focused on money and less concerned about the quality of treatment, and money talks here. Standards are compromised for the almighty dollar which is a disappointment. In recovery, money doesn't buy sobriety so in some ways these luxury treatment models are flawed and just enable the addict/alcoholic. If changes were made at the top and the right people were managing the place this facility could be one of the best. Currently, it is does not offer nearly the value its price tag commands and consequently I do not recommend it.
    The counseling offered was a strength. The costs incurred was a weakness. It's beautiful and top of the line
