At first, I was not exactly happy with the place because of rules. certain groups, staff, and little things like that. Once I was able to look past that and look at myself, I realized this place is actually here to help us; and, all the groups are very informative. The staff was able to help me recognize the underlying character defects I have and gave me a ton of information on how to manage that. Extended Care is also very important. It gave me a sense of freedom and gave me the first step into my recovery. When I look back at everything at The Palm Beach Institute, I’m very happy this was the place I chose. Staff actually cares and is there to help. As long as you stick it out, you will realize how beneficial this place is.
