PBI 50th Anniversary Celebration
Addiction is fraught with a loneliness that isn’t relatable to most. While it may take you to some dark places, there are consistent outlets ready to bring you back on the right trajectory. One constant beacon of hope is The Palm Beach Institute. Our facility has withstood the test of time and gone through the tumultuous waves of different drug epidemics, and we are proud to announce our 50th-anniversary celebration. Our South Florida facility was the first private center to welcome those into rehabilitation back when substance abuse and addiction were viewed as an easy habit to break and not a disease.
PBI was founded in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1970, and established itself as the first private drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in the area. PBI is proud to announce that since its opening, we’ve been able to help more than 12,000 adults recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Those who have attended our program can attest to life-saving measures that were given.
Before the modern methods of addiction treatment became popular across the United States with the rise of one drug epidemic after another, PBI saw the need to treat substance use disorders with clinically proven modalities. Today, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) estimates that 14,500 treatment centers exist throughout the United States offering specialized addiction recovery services.
Although PBI was a pioneer in the field when it began, today is a new era where individuals can take advantage of client-centered behavioral therapy, FDA-approved medication, clinically based counseling, and case management to combat addiction.
How Is PBI Celebrating Its 50th Anniversary?
Come join us at The Palm Beach Institute as we celebrate our 50th year of serving the state of Florida and the nation as a whole. We take pride in our history and commitment to fostering lasting sobriety in our patients. We want to acknowledge and honor the passionate professionals who have made this facility so effective in its mission to change lives for the better over the decades.
The celebration will take place on November 14th at 11 am on PBI’s campus and will feature a parade, food, swag, and a ceremony with government and state officials. We will continue to observe social distancing measures and there will be masks and hand sanitizer available for all attendees.
Out of caution for the safety of our guests and staff alike, we are limiting in-person attendance, but are happy to welcome anyone who wishes to join via Zoom. Click here for the link to the virtual event.
With five decades of experience in the industry, PBI knows the effectiveness of evidence-based therapies and how they can help a person in the best way possible. Although the approach has changed, our mission remains the same – help those who want to change their lives.
Five Decades Later – PBI Continues to Change Lives
The Palm Beach Institute and its employees are incredibly proud of what the facility has managed to accomplish over the past half a century. Our commitment remains consistent to help people overcome their struggles with addiction, the same as it was when our doors opened. We are looking forward to the next 50 years and will stay at the forefront of the changes used to treat this disease.
Our teams work together to deliver a high-quality approach to addiction treatment that will address the needs of each client individually. Our clients will receive the highest level of care, including psychiatric care, therapy, medical treatment, experiential therapy, nutritional guides, and aftercare.
Our objective and what keeps our staff moving forward is to make a difference in people’s lives on a daily basis. Our attention to detail and service sets us apart, and we take pride in the compassion and qualifications our clinical staff and management boast.
Substance abuse continues to be detrimental to our society, and the situation has become harder to ignore. Opioids overdoses continue to cost lives at historic levels, many of which include the deadly drug fentanyl. Methamphetamine is a drug that is starting to follow opioids footsteps and is slowly reaching epidemic levels.
We continue with our mission from 50 years ago and want to help those struggling heal from addiction. Today, we celebrate 50 years of exceptional service and look forward to 50 more.
