About Beachway's Residential Treatment Program

Making the decision to seek help for substance abuse, addiction, or mental health is one of the first steps to reclaiming your life. Although it might seem scary and intimidating at first, the lasting benefits of professional rehabilitation are remarkably life-changing in so many ways. If you’re struggling with an addiction to drugs or alcohol and want to be free of its grasp, the team at Beachway’s inpatient treatment center in Florida is here to help you overcome your unique challenges and obstacles.

Each patient at our inpatient treatment center receives a completely personalized approach to therapy, which combines traditional rehabilitation programs with holistic and compassionate care. We specialize in a wide array of services, including counseling, detoxification, dual diagnosis treatment, and holistic treatments, such as art, music, and recreational therapy. Located in beautiful West Palm Beach, we’re passionate about providing our patients with a safe and welcoming environment where the focus is on mental health and recovery. Together, we can defeat addiction and empower lifelong health and happiness to come.

What Is Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient treatment, or residential treatment, refers to a type of treatment or a level of care. A patient will live on-site at a facility while receiving treatment services. In a mental health or addiction treatment context, they’ll be under 24-hour supervision in a supportive environment. Inpatient treatment typically lasts days or weeks at a time. During this recovery phase, patients may receive group and individual counseling, withdrawal management treatment (Detox), and clinical support.

One purpose of inpatient treatment for substance abuse or mental health disorders is to allow individuals to separate themselves from triggers and environments that may be leading to symptoms or poor behaviors. Within a safe, comfortable treatment program —and with the support of experienced clinical and therapeutic staff — clients can work to discover root causes for disorders or symptoms, learn and practice healthier coping mechanisms, and prepare for choosing healthier lifestyles after inpatient treatment.

Ultimately, inpatient treatment is not a “be-all, end-all” approach to healing for individuals with mental health or addiction disorders. Instead, it’s a foundation from which clients can build a life-long approach to wellness.

Beachway's Residential Treatment Program

Beachway Therapy Center offers inpatient medical detox and residential treatment at our Florida facility. Beachway’s holistic approach to residential treatment addresses addiction and mental health issues. Our luxury amenities and campus provide a focused, supportive environment that’s free of distractions.

Each experience with inpatient treatment at Beachway begins with a caring and holistic intake process. Our clinical team starts with an assessment that helps us understand cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. This ensures we can demonstrate cultural sensitivity and understand the unique care needs each person may have related to their background.

The team pays special attention to trauma and other critical triggers when developing treatment plans and uses ongoing assessments and evaluations to support best practices in treatment. That includes assessments to understand levels of depression, addiction, and even social and economic needs. This information informs a holistic approach that allows us to treat the whole person.

By experiencing treatment at our inpatient facility, patients can avoid the temptations, stresses, and complexities that can lead to relapse. During patients’ time in our inpatient program, they can learn new tools and solutions to address and heal the issues in their lives.

When Is Inpatient Treatment Necessary?

Substance abuse and addiction are serious conditions that often require close, specialized care to achieve long-lasting recovery. Inpatient care offers patients several benefits that are often not available with other at-home options, thus allowing for higher success rates and lifelong changes. If you’ve tried other ways to overcome an addiction but ended up experiencing relapse, inpatient treatment may be the right next step.

Some signs that inpatient addiction treatment or mental health treatment — and an immediate psychiatric evaluation — may be necessary include:

  • Symptoms associated with psychosis or other severe mental health issues, such as hallucinations
  • An inability to stop risk-taking and other behavior that puts someone in serious danger
  • Thoughts of harming self or others
  • General mental health symptoms that are so bad they regularly interfere with day-to-day life

Inpatient care may be right for you if:

  • You have a severe addiction to drugs or alcohol
  • You have struggled with substance abuse for many years
  • You have experienced little success with other rehabilitation methods
  • You have experienced relapse following a previous treatment program


Reaching out to find out more about an inpatient treatment option sooner rather than later can help support better outcomes in the future and avoid serious complications. Waiting for mental health or addiction issues to resolve themselves — or trying to white-knuckle through them without any help — can lead to even more serious situations. For example, continuing on a path to addiction can cause havoc with a person’s body and lead to serious physical illnesses and irreversible conditions.

Beachway's Inpatient Treatment Options

Beachway’s inpatient treatment options are holistic and trauma-informed. The staff works with each individual to create a tailored approach to care and integrate therapeutic modalities, such as:

  • Holistic therapy
  • Trauma-focused therapy
  • EMDR
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
  • Recreational therapy, including art therapy


The approaches are nuanced and depend on the needs of each person. For example, someone needing trauma-focused treatment is supported through an initial stabilization period to create a safe, secure environment where they can explore therapies and healing.

No matter the treatment need, the staff at Beachway think creatively and work alongside each client to support unique treatment plans. Beachway never applies copy-and-paste or cookie-cutter treatment plans to every person.

Our clinicians are trained in best therapeutic practices, including EMDR, CBT, and DBT. However, the most important aspect of the program is adapting treatment modalities to fit the person rather than forcing people to try to change to fit the modality.

This adaptive approach positions Beachway as a strong advocate, support, and treatment option for individuals facing co-occurring disorders.

Inpatient Treatment for Substance Abuse

Our approach to substance abuse treatment incorporates evidence-based and holistic therapies, and our clinicians and therapists take a client-first approach to all treatment.

Patients receive education about each therapy approach to ensure they understand the process and goals, and staff work to accommodate personal preferences and unique physical and mental health needs. Approaches such as EMDR, DBT, and CBT allow individuals to identify negative thought patterns, behaviors, and reactions and work on new coping skills that help them break the cycles inherent in those patterns.

During these sessions, Beachway staff work with clients to help them adopt and practice new skills so they can prepare for a future that’s less likely to include a relapse. Because avoiding relapse is an important goal, Beachway’s programs include ongoing support and a long-term thought process. Our staff helps set up aftercare and other support systems so clients don’t step out of inpatient substance abuse treatment and back into the world “cold turkey.”

Inpatient Treatment for Mental Health

The staff takes a similar approach to mental health treatment. Our team conducts numerous assessments and has multiple conversations with clients to understand their mental health needs and any co-occurring diagnoses.

The teams at Beachway leverage specialized therapies and interventions, including CBT and other forms of talk therapy, to help clients understand their disorder and develop healthy coping mechanisms for managing it. Trauma-informed clinicians provide holistic care, and the staff also educates patients about nutrition, exercise, and other elements that can support wellness in the future.

During inpatient treatment, therapists use a continuous assessment process. This lets us work with each person to create a living treatment plan and adapt approaches as needed for optimal outcomes.

What are the Benefits of Inpatient Treatment?

When clients enter the inpatient treatment program at Beachway, they begin a partnership with caring, experienced staff. They’re supported 24 hours a day by a range of trained professionals and staff who work to meet their daily needs so they can focus on treatment.

With inpatient treatment at Beachway, you’re given access to benefits such as:

  • Around-the-clock support from our on-site staff of medical professionals and counselors
  • Daily sessions and check-ins personalized for your individual needs
  • A safe environment free of the stresses or influences of the outside world
  • Unique holistic therapies, such as horseback riding, golf, yoga, fishing, and more
  • Companionship from peers who share similar struggles and goals


Our culturally sensitive approach to treatment caters to the needs of patients with diverse backgrounds. Beachway works to ensure they can feel comfortable and safe in the program so they can let go of stressors and focus on wellness.

Individualized Long-Term Rehabilitation

Everyone’s journey to recovery is different. In certain cases, a person may require a longer-term program to fully break free of their addiction. Unfortunately, many traditional programs are centered around a general 30-day approach, which isn’t always sufficient for a complete recovery. According to the US National Institute on Drug Abuse, treatment programs of 90+ days allow for the greatest chance of success.

At Beachway, we offer longer-term programs designed to help patients defeat addiction for good. Our programs are broken down into different phases based on the patient’s individual circumstances. Long-term rehabilitation will ideally begin with a detoxification phase, followed by inpatient care consisting of daily sessions with our experienced on-site staff of medical professionals and counselors. The length of treatment will vary from patient to patient and can range from a minimum of 90 days to as long as 2 years. Your program will be customized to your needs and will continue to adapt as you grow in your recovery.

Inpatient treatment can take 30 to 90 days on average, and a variety of factors impact how long treatment might take. For example, individuals coming into the program with severe physical dependency issues may need to go through medical detox before they can appropriately concentrate on other therapy approaches. Those seeking mental health treatment with trauma needs may need to be stabilized before they can focus on moving forward.

How Does Inpatient Treatment Work?

Residential treatment provides an optimal recovery environment so our patients can focus completely on getting better. After working through the initial acute detox stage, patients can begin to participate more actively in clinical services. Each patient will be assigned a primary therapist who will work with them to develop a customized treatment plan.

Our therapists use each patient’s unique history to determine a treatment plan that works for them. With housing and food provided throughout the day, patients are free to focus on their recovery with the full support of a clinical team when they need it. This is an intense and shorter phase of recovery, lasting anywhere from a week to a month.

  • Our holistic therapies and 24/7 support create a positive environment for our patients, helping to decrease the chance of relapse.
  • Inpatient treatment is a commitment — but the comprehensive program helps patients who find it difficult to stay sober without 24/7 support.

Beachway provides resources to family members, loved ones, and patients to support effective long-term recovery efforts. That includes a family support group led by a dedicated therapist who also provides support for families during the aftercare program.

Cost and Length of Stay

The cost of treatment is determined by the level of care and length of time in each level of care. Because of the costs associated with 24-hour care, it will cost more money than lower levels of care, such as outpatient care. At Beachway, detox is the highest level of care offered and the most expensive due to the medical care required.

The average length of stay for those in mental health treatment programs is 45 days, and those in substance abuse treatment programs typically stay for 30 days on average. However, this can vary substantially from person to person. Beachway’s dedication to not forcing patients into treatment boxes means the team recommends the approaches they feel are best for each situation. Some factors considered in recommending treatment approaches and lengths of stay include family support, medical history, history of mental health and substance abuse disorders, employment status, history of relapse, and community support.

Before beginning inpatient mental health treatment, the team gathers information about insurance and conducts a verification to understand what treatment the policy will cover. The team keeps clients informed every step of the way about the cost of care and works with them to plan an extended stay, including discussing ways to manage the cost.
