Treating Addiction in Palm Beach for Over 45 Years

The Palm Beach Institute was founded in 1970 and was the first private drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in the state of Florida. We offer clients a multidimensional and comprehensive treatment approach which recognizes that each individual has a unique path to recovery. As the premier Florida-based substance abuse facility, we are able to offer our clients a full range of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services for adolescents and adults who struggle with substance abuse as well as their families. For over 45 years The Palm Beach Institute has provided clients with the expertise needed to start living a life free of drugs and alcohol.

The Palm Beach Institute Provides a Full Continuum of Care

Located in West Palm Beach, Florida, The Palm Beach Institute provides quality client care and treatment for individuals who reside in Florida as well as across the nation. We offer a wide range of services that include a multitude of substance abuse treatment therapies that are highly effective and evidence based. We also offer medical detoxification services in a clean and closely supervised environment as well as partial hospitalization services and continuing care plans for all adolescents and adults. The Palm Beach Institute is both nationally and internationally recognized for its commitment to excellence in substance abuse treatment for adults and adolescents.

In addition to traditionally-based therapy, counseling and medical care services, the experienced staff at the Palm Beach Institute also offers supplementary drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that help clients achieve long-term recovery that encompasses the mind, body and spirit. Programs such as recreational therapy, comprehensive aftercare programs, and alumni programs are examples of the multidimensional and comprehensive approach we offer at The Palm Beach Institute. We deliver these programs within a supportive and healing atmosphere in which the addict gains confidence, support and empowerment which frees them from the ravages of addiction. This multidimensional approach that is employed by the staff The Palm Beach Institute recognizes that each individual is unique with a distinct set of characteristics involving race, culture, life history, drug of choice and using style, among other traits.

Recognizing the fact that each person responds to different therapeutic and counseling approaches, The Palm Beach Institute has also established a unique approach to family therapy, psychiatry and mental health counseling in addition to substance abuse counseling and therapy. An example of this approach would include alternative therapies such as the use of an emerging technique called psychodrama. With this therapeutic technique, therapists use guided drama and role playing exercises to help patients uncover those specific past issues and events which lead to addictive behaviors. Clients recreate the life situations within their family structure— in both their immediate and extended family—and uncover those life events which led the client to their substance use and abuse.

The Palm Beach Institute: Leading the Way in Adolescent and Aftercare Programs

The Palm Beach Institute also offers programs for adolescents aged 13-17 who are struggling with drug and alcohol dependence issues. Our skilled clinicians realize that one of the major challenges in working with young people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol is creating an environment in which they feel they are not alone. The staff at Palm Beach Institute work to create an atmosphere of trust and a sense that clients are, indeed, associating with others who can relate to them in their group and individual settings. With our adolescent drug treatment programs, we cover the important topics that young people can relate to including:

  • The influence of peer pressure
  • Individual beliefs and value systems
  • Developmental issues
  • Family dynamics and history with substance abuse

Additionally, The Palm Beach Institute offers aftercare programs such as the Olive House, which is a 12-Step based transitional sober living house for adults. Located just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, residents of Olive House put into practice and life and coping skills that were learned in treatment while they slowly transition back into their normal lives and routines. There are also three-day family programs that are available where families of those struggling with addiction can be active participants in the healing process. The full continuum of care provided by The Palm Beach Institute provides stability and consistency throughout every step of an individual’s stay. In each step, clients are evaluated; and, challenges to long-term recovery are identified and addressed in order to build a solid relapse prevention plan.
