Levels of Care

Addiction treatment should be as unique as the individual who needs it. How a substance use disorder should be treated depends not only on the substance in question but also on the individual and the contributing factors of their addiction. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers various treatment settings for substance abuse that allow us to provide our patients with the individualized and comprehensive care that they need and deserve. These levels of substance abuse treatment include medical detox, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient treatment, and residential addiction treatment to treat addictions of all severities.

Levels of Care for Substance Abuse Treatment at BHOPB

Medically Supervised Detox

Patients who receive treatment with us most often start at our first addiction level of care: medically monitored detox. Otherwise referred to as a medically assisted detox, this is a crucial step in the recovery process. At this time, patients are medically supervised around the clock as they’re slowly weaned off of drugs and alcohol. Alcohol and drugs like opioids are among the most dangerous substances to detox from, as withdrawal symptoms can become dangerous and life-threatening. Our medical staff offers 24-hour supervision as patients detox and also administer medication to alleviate the discomfort of withdrawal if needed.

Residential Treatment Program

Depending on how severe their substance use disorder is, patients may then move on to our inpatient level of treatment. Otherwise known as a Residential Treatment Program, our inpatient drug treatment provides 24-hour care to help patients achieve and maintain their sobriety. Patients in our residential treatment levels live at our facility for the duration of their programs to avoid outside distractions and temptations that can hinder their recovery. Our residential treatment program also includes individual and group therapy, family therapy, relapse prevention skill development, and more.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Our different levels of care for addiction treatment also include a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). PHP is the next level down from residential treatment. PHP drug treatment includes attending therapy sessions at the facility during the day for several days a week. The purpose of PHP is to help patients continue receiving full-time addiction treatment while simultaneously transitioning to their everyday lives. Patients in our Partial Hospitalization Program may continue to meet with a psychiatrist or counselors regularly for medical evaluation and management. They may also have individual therapy sessions with their primary clinicians weekly and group therapy daily.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

Our lower level of care at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches is our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP). IOP treatment is designed to help patients focus on their recovery goals and develop the skills they’ll need to sustain their sobriety after rehab. Our IOP requires patients to participate in therapy for a minimum of 9 hours per week so they can work with our licensed therapists to learn how to combat negative thinking. Scheduling and the number of these sessions are adaptable to fit each patient’s needs. IOP is beneficial to clients who have families to care for and careers to get back to.

All of our levels of substance abuse treatment are designed to help people in various stages of addiction recovery. The level of treatment a patient is placed in relies on their clinical assessments, which are held upon their admittance to our facility.
