A Message From Our Clinical Director…
Beachside Rehab is a private, drug and alcohol abuse treatment facility located on Hutchinson Island, Florida. We take a holistic approach to treatment, while also supporting the proven 12-step program and SMART Recovery.
The center’s philosophy is built upon the belief that chemical dependency is a chronic, progressive, and fatal illness if untreated. The problem is pervasive and affects not only the identified dependent individual, but those who are in any type of intimate relationship with the individual (i.e. family members, spouse, employees, etc.). Chemical dependency places enormous strain on the family systems and places all members in jeopardy. It is Beachside Rehab’s philosophy that the problem is diagnosable and treatable. It is further believed that not only the identified chemically dependent individual is in need of treatment, but whenever possible, the entire family system is also in need of treatment.
We believe that “addicts” and those who love them have been wrongfully associated with a negative stigma. While the effects of addiction are undoubtedly negative, it is not the actual person or a personality flaw that should be stigmatized as being negative, but rather a coping skill that resulted in a negative outcome.
Usually people do not strive to become addicted, but rather get engulfed by the pull of the temporary relief substances provide. Addiction can happen fast and it does not discriminate, or only affect a certain type of person. It affects mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, from teenagers and veterans to CEO’s and doctors. It is rampant throughout today’s society.
We utilize mind, body, and spiritual elements to provide an enhanced recovery program for each individual. We understand that every person is faced with unique circumstances and that one program does not fit all. For this reason, we work hard to provide the specialized treatment that every patient deserves.
Beachside Rehab Programs
We offer 3 Levels of Care: PHP, IOP, & OP. PHP provides at least 5 clinical hours per day, 7 days a week. IOP & OP provides 3 clinical hours per day, 5 days per week. Each LOC provides one individual session with their Licensed Primary Therapist per week. Group Therapy sessions are provided by the same Licensed Primary Therapists, so clients are able to have daily contact with their Primary Therapist. Although we recognize the importance of individual therapy, it has been proven that group therapy is the best therapeutic approach to recovery.
We have a variety of clinical staff with different substance abuse & mental health focused degrees & licensure. These include: Licensed Psychologist (PhD), Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC), Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Master-Level Certified Addiction Professionals (MCAP), Certified Psychodramatist, International Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor (ICADC), and Certified EMDR Therapists.
Individual & Group Therapy
We combine both individual & group into a client’s daily schedule in order to give clients the best possible outcome.
Group Therapy is based on a 4-5 week program. Each week has a different overall recovery goal and the groups that are provided that week correspond with that goal. Weeks include “Recovery & Relapse Prevention”, “Identity & Purpose”, “Cognitions & Communication”, and “Depression, Depressants, and Dependents”.
