New Objectives West Palm Beach Florida

To meet our clients where they are in their addiction and mental health struggles, and to care for the mind, body and spirit in a compassionate, understanding environment.

ABOUT NEW OBJECTIVES

Located in beautiful West Palm Beach, Fla., New Objectives is a private residential treatment facility for adults struggling with chemical dependency, as well as co-occurring mental health disorders. New Objectives offers multidisciplinary, gender-specific tracks for men, women, and pregnant women, as well as specialized LGBT programming. While the facility does not provide on-site detoxification, the facility can coordinate with local detox clinics if medically necessary.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

According to the center’s website, an initial assessment that includes family members is used to create individualized treatment plans. Plans typically combine traditional, 12-step based and holistic approaches. Although the length of stay is dependent on each client’s specific needs, New Objectives’ residential treatment typically lasts 30 days.

Through evidence-based modalities, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), programming addresses individual clients through process groups and individual therapy that help clients identify any factors that may contribute to addictive behavior. To help develop community-based support networks, clients are also introduced to the principles and practices of 12-Step through attending 12-step meetings and educational fellowship workshops.

The facility’s gender-specific tracks are designed to facilitate open and supportive group environments, where topics such as sexuality and relationships may be openly addressed. Specifically, male clients focus on areas of self-management, such as anger and violence, whereas female clients focus on codependency, sexual abuse, and body image. Pregnant and postpartum women have access to treatment that centers around nutrition, physical well-being, and healthy life skills, while the LGBT track may address low self-esteem due to discrimination.

To treat individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health concerns, New Objectives provides disorder-specific counseling sessions, psychiatric evaluations, and ongoing medication management. Along with evidence-based approaches, clients
also participate in recreational and alternative therapies, such as expressive arts, yoga, and chiropractic treatment.

Adults capable of living independently may benefit from the facility’s outpatient-based treatments, either a day program that provides a full day of programming or an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Although offering similar programming, these outpatient-based programs allow clients to reside in secure off-site housing at night.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

Under the direction of a board-certified psychiatrist, New Objectives employs certified addiction professionals (CAPs), a clinical psychologist, as well as other administrative and admissions specialists. According to the center’s website, New Objectives maintains an intimate staff-to-client ratio of 2:1.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

The center’s website indicates New Objectives operates out of four different buildings, including two upscale, gender-specific residences. Both situated on a lake, each homelike residence features a large outdoor swimming pool with separate whirlpool, spacious communal areas, large double-occupancy bedrooms, and fully-equipped kitchens. According to the facility’s website, New Objectives encourages clients to adhere to a “Mediterranean Meal Plan,” which emphasizes nutritious, whole foods. However, residents perform their own grocery shopping and meal preparation with other residents. To limit disruptions during treatment, clients are required to turn in their electronics, though therapists may approve laptop use on a case-by-case basis.

  • A facility that offers a Solution, I am forever grateful to New Objectives. My son attended treatment at New Objectives in July and is 8 months sober. As a family member of a recovering addict and alcoholic I was lost and was enabling my sons addiction until I reached out and took the suggestions from the Professionals. Getting my son to Florida and out of Suffolk County NY was the best thing that allowed Me and my wife to recover from our enabling and Our son the Opportunity to grow and become a sober individual

  • This place saved my life. I am greatful that it was around for a good old country boy like me. They allowed us to cook for our you live in Private Client housing that is beautiful.
    My experience here was less than to be desired. It is a very unorganized facility and lots of down time with sitting around. Your day consists of 9-2 at a filthy facility, unqualified therepy and construction paper crafts made for children. Almost 7 out of the 15 I went there with relapsed. It is not a place of recovery. They offer 1 yoga class a week and it's in a common area full of distractions, you leave there then sit at a house until a meeting.. Weekends were sitting until a night meeting then if you were lucky you go to the facility and maybe went on a walk or watch movies.. honestly worst place ever!!! Would never recommend!! Do your research

  • As an attorney having clients who have had problems with drug and alcohol addiction, I cannot stress just how helpful this group has been in helping each of my clients towards a path to sobriety. This organization is not about pushing people through the program and making money, they actually care. They go above and beyond to give each person a strong foundation that they can then build the rest of their lives upon. I can't say enough.
    This is such an amazing treatment center. The staff is incredible from the therapists to the techs, they genuinely care about their clients. The housing is ridiculously nice and all the facilities are clean and neat. I've been to several rehabs and I would recommend this one above all.

  • This place saved my life. gave me the opportunity to learn a different way to live. If you really want to clear your head and get on the right path to recovery this is the right place. They really care about your well being. and take the time to make sure your after treatment plan helps you stay on the right path to recovery I recommend this place to everybody I know who is in need of these kind of services.
    Clean and affordable.

  • The atmosphere was nice. Yoga was offered once a week. It felt under staffed and I didn't really know what was going on. They needed better communication. They should have given us more things to do and have choices on the meetings we went to. There was a lot of down time at the center and there was nothing to do. Example, no books or games It's structured which is what you need but they should have had groups during the day that were either broken up or someone had authority of young people's disrespect.
