About Us

Leading Behavioral Health Care Organization  

At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, located in South Florida, we lead the nation in behavioral healthcare. Our evidence-based programs offer expert care and support, focusing and specializing in treating drug and alcohol addiction alongside co-occurring disorders. Our holistic approach identifies and addresses underlying issues while our dedicated team of medical and clinical professionals ensures individualized treatment for each patient.  

Using a holistic approach to treatment, we work to identify and address the underlying disorders that have contributed to patients’ substance abuse and treat each condition simultaneously. We firmly believe that this is the best way for patients to heal on all levels. Our diverse and specialized treatment offerings ensure quality care for each individual patient. 

Our History 

Since its establishment in January 1997, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, Inc. (BHOPB) has emerged as a premier behavioral health care organization. From its humble beginnings with a 12-bed program, BHOPB has expanded significantly, now boasting over 200 beds across multiple facilities. This growth has allowed us to provide a comprehensive range of care options, integrating innovative approaches while remaining steadfast in our commitment to holistic treatment, addressing both substance abuse and mental health disorders. 

In June 2018, Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches became part of the Banyan Treatment Center family. Banyan Treatment Center, recognized as an industry leader in individualized drug and alcohol addiction and mental health treatment services, welcomed BHOPB as its 8th and 9th locations nationwide. This partnership underscores our shared commitment to providing the highest standard of care to those we serve.

The BHOPB Difference 

At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, we are a diverse and cohesive community united by a common purpose: recognizing the indiscriminate impact of addiction on individuals and families. Our mission is succinct yet profound: to facilitate the liberation of individuals from the grip of addiction. We are not a “one size fits all” program; instead, we have the experienced staff and infrastructure to offer individualized treatment plans to best meet the needs of each individual who comes through our doors. 

With a seasoned and dedicated team and a robust infrastructure, we meticulously tailor treatment plans to meet the unique needs of every client who seeks our assistance. At our South Florida treatment center, we delve into the depths to unearth the underlying causes of trauma-related symptoms, often rooted in experiences of abandonment, neglect, or bereavement. We firmly believe that successful rehabilitation necessitates a comprehensive understanding of each patient’s holistic requirements. Thus, we champion the delivery of personalized care, respecting the diverse backgrounds, circumstances, and intricacies of each individual across all our locations. Our unique strength lies in our ability to deliver a comprehensive continuum of care, offering unwavering support throughout every step of the recovery journey and continuing with aftercare treatment through our alumni program.
