At Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, one of our primary focuses is providing our patients relief from pain, without the use of any drugs. We also strive to educate them on drug-free pain management techniques. Whether a patient is experiencing pain from detox, or as a result of ongoing physical stress, we utilize massage therapy, chiropractic therapy, acupuncture and multiple other techniques to give our patients maximum comfort and pain relief during rehab.
