The distractions of everyday life and old habits can very quickly derail patients’ recovery efforts and cause them to relapse. Many patients require more than the traditional 30-day stay in a rehab facility. Long-term rehab provides patients with an opportunity to immerse themselves in their recovery and pursue mental health with a direct focus and no outside interference. Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers comprehensive long-term rehab in which patients are given ample time to emotionally and physically heal and readjust to a life without drugs or alcohol. 

The process allows for a total transformation in which patients: 

  • Give their bodies the opportunity to revert to normal function after expelling the toxins that have built up over the course of their addiction. 
  • Realign their perception of addiction and their toxic relationship with drugs and alcohol. 
  • Examine the causes of their initial substance abuse and work toward constructively managing stress and factors that may have contributed to their addictions. 
  • Develop new and healthier habits that will be a provide a solid foundation for post-treatment living, continued recovery, and positive interaction with their family and the rest of the world.

Our Substance Abuse Treatment Programs 

When treating a substance abuse disorder, the focus must be on the specific struggles of the individual in need. Because of this, our comprehensive addiction treatment programs are substance-specific to create a focused recovery and promote long-term sobriety. 

Alcohol Addiction 

It can be hard to draw a line between social drinking and alcoholism. Many people struggle with alcoholism, but our alcohol abuse treatment is designed to help patients get sober and get their lives back on track. 

Heroin Addiction 

Heroin has played a significant role in the opioid epidemic with many people turning to this drug after becoming addicted to painkillers. Our heroin addiction treatment in Palm Beach is helping patients overcome this dependence and move past this addiction. 

Meth Addiction 

Meth can have a serious impact on a person’s health, including their physical appearance. Patients in our meth addiction treatment program will work on their dependence and learn to rebuild their lives. 

Pain Medication Addiction 

While painkillers may seem harmless, when these medications are abused, addiction can occur, and the consequences can be dangerous. Pain medication addiction treatment helps individuals to stop abusing these medications so that they can get back to their normal lives. 

Benzo Addiction 

Benzos may be used to treat anxiety and sleeping disorders, but they can also be addictive if not taken as directed. When this occurs, benzo addiction treatment is often required to get the patient to stop this abuse. 

Opiate Addiction 

Opiates have been a major topic of concern in the 21st century, and the number of overdose deaths from these drugs has become alarmingly high. Our Palm Beach opiate addiction treatment can help you or a loved one stop this addiction before it is too late. 

Cocaine Addiction 

Cocaine is a recreational drug that is also highly addictive and can destroy various aspects of a person’s life. Cocaine addiction treatment can help these people overcome this addiction and put back the pieces of their lives. 

Our Rehab Treatment Programs 

Patients require addiction treatment programs tailored to their specific substances of choice and should consider the patient’s other needs. 

Long-Term Help 

Many patients have developed addictions or substance abuse problems due to significant trauma or mental illness that cannot be resolved or properly addressed within the timeframe allocated in traditional treatment. Our long-term rehab program provides patients with ample time to fully heal. They will be able to examine the origins of their addictions with the help of a qualified and experienced mental health and medical professional. 

24-Hour Support & Care 

One of the main reasons why addicts fail to break their substance abuse habits is that they are constantly placed back in the same toxic circumstances. Since they haven’t learned how to modify their behavior and their responses to temptation, it is often critical that they receive treatment in a location removed from their everyday lives. Residential alcohol and drug rehab provides patients with the opportunity to recover and heal in a safe and comfortable environment with no outside disruptions or distractions. This in-depth process encourages self-examination, life skills building, and community living. Patients will also learn the tools needed to successfully transition into everyday life in recovery. 

Help for Young Adults 

Very often, a casual and ill-advised flirtation with drugs and alcohol during adolescence becomes a crippling and deadly addiction in adulthood. Our young adult alcohol and drug rehab program provides a safe, sensitive, and supportive environment in which mental health professionals address the complex and unique problems faced by young adults through in-depth group and individual counseling. 

Our Unique Addiction & Mental Health Recovery Programs  

Our drug rehab in Lake Worth, FL, offers various types of addiction treatment programs and mental health services, each designed to aid individuals to achieve their long-term recovery goals. You can learn more about each of them below. 

Inpatient Mental Health Program 

Our treatment center offers a unique inpatient mental health treatment program in Florida, catering to individuals with primary or standalone mental health disorders without requiring co-occurring substance use issues for admission. Specializing in various mood and thought disorders, our residential facility provides comprehensive care in a home-like environment, distinct from hospital settings. Patients benefit from round-the-clock access to specialized doctors, therapists, and mental health experts, receiving services such as medication management, therapy, recreational activities, and psychological testing. Our facility employs diverse therapeutic techniques tailored to each patient, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, EMDR, and many more unique and individualized therapy programs. 

Additionally, patients engage in both on-site and off-site recreational activities, enhancing their reintegration into everyday life. We emphasize continued care post-discharge, connecting patients with a nationwide network of over 1,000 providers to ensure ongoing support. Our goal is to prepare patients for life outside of treatment, helping them manage chronic mental health disorders through professional care and a healthy lifestyle. 

First Responders 

Our first responder addiction treatment program is designed to help individuals like law enforcement officers, paramedics, EMTs, and firefighters. First responders take huge risks daily, responding to major crises like accidents, natural disasters, and terrorism. As a result, these dedicated individuals are often exposed to many tragedies and trauma, as well as the pressure to cope. 

In addition to stressors at work, they may also face typical stressors at home, all of which can pile up to a too-high-to-manage heap. For these reasons, substance abuse, family dysfunction, depression, and suicide are highly prevalent among this group. Due to the unique circumstances of their job, it can be difficult to open up to others about their struggles and reach out for help. This program offers medical detox, psychotherapy, counseling, family therapy, and more. 


In addition to first responders’ care, we also offer military and veterans addiction and mental health services. Similar to, first responders, many veterans have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), mental illness, and substance use disorders because of the trauma and combat exposure they’ve faced. As a result, any treatment program won’t do for these unique individuals. 

As a way of giving back to the hardworking men and women that have fought for our nation, BHOPB created a program for veterans and military service member to aid them in their recovery from mental health and drug use disorders. Some features of this program include medical detox, inpatient treatment, and counseling. 

Domestic Violence and Addiction 

Domestic violence encompasses deliberate acts of physical, emotional, or sexual harm inflicted within a household, occurring among romantic partners, parents, children, or siblings. These incidents may be isolated or recurrent, with many cases involving multiple occurrences. Alcohol frequently plays a role in such violence, with research indicating that around 50% of perpetrators have struggled with substance addiction. 

Violent acts that may constitute domestic violence include: 

  • Verbal, emotional, and physical intimidation 
  • Destruction of the victim’s possessions 
  • Maiming or killing pets 
  • Threats 
  • Forced sex 
  • Physical harm like slapping, punching, kicking, choking, burning, stabbing, and shooting 
  • Killing victims 

Furthermore, many individuals who experience trauma like domestic violence also turn to drink or drugs to numb their physical and psychological struggles. Not only could our domestic violence and addiction treatment services help victims, but also offenders. 

Drug-Free Pain Management 

Most of us are used to taking medication the moment we get a headache or backache. It’s normal. But long-term and frequent use of painkillers can lead to increased tolerance, making them less effective over time. A person who takes pain medication regularly is less likely to feel relief with a normal dose. 

What most people don’t realize is that there are ways to manage pain without drugs, and abuse of opioids or prescription painkillers can make your pain worse. This is known as opioid-induced hyperalgesia, a condition in which long-term narcotic use reduces your body’s ability to tolerate pain and increases its sensitivity to it. 

Unfortunately, this condition often convinces people that they need to use more painkillers. As a result, the condition acts as a catalyst for the cycle of pain pill abuse. To help individuals who have fallen into this cycle, our facility offers drug-free pain management. 

Dual Diagnosis Treatment 

A dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorder, refers to addiction and mental illness that occur simultaneously. For instance, an individual with an alcohol use disorder and clinical depression may be diagnosed with a co-occurring disorder. While these conditions occur together, they need to be addressed individually for the person to recover and see real progress in their overall health. For this reason, our unique mental health and addiction treatment programs include dual diagnosis care. 

Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches offers a long-term program designed to provide an extra level of care and treatment. Relapse is one of the most difficult stages of recovery but is often preceded by a person not receiving an adequate level of care before being released from treatment. Our program gives patients as much time as they need to be strong in recovery.  If you’re ready to change your life or your loved one’s life, contact us or call (561) 220-3981 to get started today!
