The First Steps:
Check-In and Orientation
During the initial check-in, the patient will receive a brief orientation from a member of the clinical care team. The patient will complete any remaining documentation to finalize the admissions process and will receive any details about how their customized rehabilitation program will unfold during their stay.
For some patients, this involves detox. For others, detox isn’t required. This decision will be made by the Beachway medical team on an individual, case by case basis. For those who must undergo the detox process, that is the first priority before anything else.
Once checked in, a short walk with a member of the welcoming staff will lead the patient to their room, where they will get settled in and unpack their belongings. The first hours at Beachway will also include a brief tour of the property.
Because Beachway is a boutique therapy center with less than 50 patients, our staff is able to tailor the accommodations to fit each guest and make their space feel like their own. Comfortably furnished and impeccably clean — the modern accommodations at Beachway have everything a patient might need within reach. There are those times when a patient may forget to bring toiletries, device chargers, or other items to make their stay more comfortable. Our staff is here to help provide those items when possible, so the patient can focus on their healing journey,
The rooms are warm, inviting spaces with soothing color palettes, beautiful indoor plants, and a wealth of natural sunlight.
Rooms may be shared with one or two others, or they may be private (which may have a waitlist). As a detox patient progresses to lower levels of care, private rooms may be available as an accommodation option. However, sharing rooms with others during recovery helps foster community and emotional support between fellow patients.
Each patient manages their individual space, although housekeeping does the majority of cleaning. After detox is over, patients can use the laundry services independently.
Amenities and Recreation:
Re-Engaging with Life and Joy
After getting settled into their room, the patient will get a first-hand look at the other amenities and recreation. Therapy and recovery involve hard work to heal and get well, which is why it is critical for patients to have healthy outlets like recreational activities. Once a patient progresses to the lower levels of care, there are a wide range of enriching activities available to pursue at the patient’s convenience.
Holistic therapy programs, including yoga classes, private beach outings, massage and chiropractic services are amongst the favorites, as is working out in the fully-equipped gym. For animal lovers, equine therapy provides patients with a chance to connect with these gentle giants. Patients are also invited to pursue their hobbies and interests like creating art or making music with communally-available instruments.
Recovery involves deep introspection, emotional healing, and unpacking negative past behaviors. But as a patient takes steps toward recovery, Beachway provides these holistic therapy programs as a way to re-engage with life and rediscover joy in healthy, stress-free ways.
Dining at Beachway
Patients will also get to see the dining area the day they check in.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner time is an exquisite experience at Beachway. The patients are treated to chef prepared meals in a community dining setting. Breaking bread with one another not only continues to foster that sense of community and support, but it also creates a unique bonding experience amongst the patients, similar to that of an at home family dining experience around the dinner table.
During the stay at Beachway Therapy Center, patients will also receive nutritional counseling, so they can understand how to truly nourish their bodies from the inside out. The chef can cater to special dietary needs like gluten intolerances, vegans, vegetarians, and food allergies.
With a wide selection of menu items at each meal, patients enjoy breakfast items such as eggs made to order, fresh fruit salads, and pancakes, lunch options such as made to order sandwiches, and fresh soups and salads, and dinner selections, such as steak, fish and chicken cooked to perfection, pastas, and much more. There are healthy grains, fresh fruit and vegetable options at every meal, and we aim to make sure each dining experience supplies the vitamins and minerals required to support the dietary needs of the full recovery process.
For healthy fuel in between meals, snacks are available for patients as well.
Individual, Group & Family
Therapy for Well-Rounded Healing
A patient’s day starts with group therapy in the morning. These therapy sessions help foster a sense of community, connection, and compassion among patients. Group counseling also centers around developing the skills necessary to interact and engage with others in healthy, positive ways.
In the afternoons, each patient has homework or dedicated individual time, followed by dinner and support group meetings. Evening activities at Beachway often focus on 12 step fellowship. In between, a customized program is created to suit individual needs.
In between therapy sessions, patients have downtime to decompress, relax, and absorb any lessons and insight on their journey to recovery. As each patient graduates to lower levels of care, more free time allotted.
The therapist to patient ratio at Beachway is 1 to 4, which allows us to focus on the patient’s recovery journey in an intimate setting. Individual therapy for the patient includes a comprehensive evaluation of past trauma. The therapy team also treats patients with dual diagnosis issues alongside substance abuse. Disorders are commonly co-occurring, so dual diagnosis patients can often exhibit addictive behaviors that reflect deep seated issues alongside substance abuse.
Engaging the family is another central part of Beachway’s recovery and therapy philosophy. Helping patients improve their family support systems contributes to long-term healing. We invite the family because addiction and mental health issues impact the entire family unit, not just the individual.
There are also multi-family support groups and workshops to create bonds between families undergoing similar situations with their respective family members. At Beachway, a full treatment team is ready to assist and guide patients with each layer of therapy. These family sessions are available twice a week and are facilitated by a licensed family therapist. Video-conferencing sessions are also available for those family members who wish to attend remotely.
