We are running the center like a family…
CEO & Founder
Imelda founded Beachside on the premise that what recovering addict’s need, in addition to a strong therapy program and the opportunity to get sober, is to find peace. Beachside was inspired by the tranquil surroundings and calm atmosphere of North Hutchinson Island. Imelda has created an oasis of healing that reminds each client to find peace within.
Imelda works alongside the Program Director to ensure the clients receive a strong clinical program in addition to a program that addresses health, wellness, and spirituality. Imelda believes it is a holistic approach that will have the most resounding impact when overcoming the grip of addiction.
Having dealt with addiction within her own family and then working through her own recovery program of Al-Anon, Imelda is all too familiar with what it takes to get sober and stay sober. Imelda believes a strong family program is integral to helping client’s sobriety.
