Addiction isn’t a younger person’s problem—it doesn’t discriminate, impacting individuals across generations, from every demographic and social class. But when we think about rehab, we often associate substance abuse treatment centers as places for young people. If you’re a person looking for help to stop addiction to drugs or alcohol, how can you find a rehab for older adults near you where you’ll feel comfortable—somewhere that understands substance abuse treatment as it relates to an older population?

Beachway’s senior program is specially designed to address concerns that an older demographic may face. If you are 65 or older, you can access individualized drug and alcohol treatment in a modern facility with amenities that will allow you to recover and focus on getting back to a healthy lifestyle.

Our Program

Beachway’s older adult program is specifically designed to address concerns that an older demographic may face. If you are 65 or older, you can access individualized drug and alcohol treatment in a modern facility with amenities that will allow you to recover and focus on getting back to a healthy independent life.

Beachway offers an inpatient residential level of care for those that require medical supervision.  In addition, Beachway will assist in medication management under the supervision of our Medical Director.  For many clients physical rehabilitation can be a useful component of recovery, assisting in pain management for chronic pain or other medical issues.

Take Step #1 – Begin Your Recovery

Facing Drug and Alcohol Addiction as a Senior

As we age, we’re more likely to deal with health concerns ranging from insomnia and depression to psychiatric issues and pain. Many people avoid seeking medical attention—they’re proud of being resilient and have trouble asking for help.

We understand. Unfortunately, this leads some seniors to alcohol or prescription drug use to ease the pain. Unintentionally, older adults can fall into addiction, and they may need help to break the cycle. Addiction is a disease, and at Beachway, we treat seniors with respect, dignity and care. We value life experience—and we want to provide drug and alcohol treatment so you can recover and enjoy life, free of pain, stress and hardship. You’re not alone.  Beachway can guide you on a path to recovery so you can truly enjoy your Golden Years.

Risk Factors for Alcohol and Drug Abuse

  • Retirement: Though Retirement is something people dream of most of their working life it can be one of the worst things for people’s mental health and well-being. People expect to retire into pure bliss but instead are hit with depression, purposelessness, and financial strain all factors that can contribute to substance abuse. Those that were forced to retire or who retired out of fear of their company going under were at greater risk for substance abuse in retirement. Many people are not prepared for this shift in lifestyle and can turn to alcohol and drugs for comfort.
  • Isolation and Loneliness: Older adults can become more and more isolated as they age. When they leave the workforce, they lose a lot of their social contact. They may lose contact with their social circles as many of their friends who may move away and start to pass away. Often family members can be busy managing their own lives and older adults can become more isolated and alone. They may not know how to re-create new networks of friends and may again turn to alcohol to numb the pain.
  • Grief: Part of aging is losing the people you care for and love. Just because loss is part of aging it does not make it any easier. Many people fail to have the proper skills to help them cope with the loss of a loved one, especially if the loss is their spouse. If older adults do not have a support network to help them process the grief and to find a place in the world where they feel they still belong it can lead to major mental health challenges that may result in them using alcohol and drugs to cope.
  • Sleep Difficulties:  Many older adults struggle with sleep. They may turn to sleep pills and alcohol to help them get the rest they need. Unfortunately, these sleep aids can cause a lot of damage if one becomes dependent on them.
  • Lack of Healthy Coping Skills: Those that use alcohol as a way to cope with life stressors are at greater risk for developing a substance abuse disorder compared to those who have healthier coping skills.

Beachway is uniquely positioned to serve seniors who are dealing with addiction with personalized drug and alcohol rehab that can be catered to this population. While the principals backing our rigorous, proven addiction treatment are relevant for all age groups, our ancillary services and alternative therapies enhance the rehab experience for seniors.
