Beachway Therapy Center, as a dual diagnosis facility, believes that in order to treat addiction successfully each person must address their own deeper emotional issues. By providing a comfortable and serene space our highly trained therapists and medical staff are fully equipped to design a treatment plan based on each client’s individual needs. We believe in meeting the addict where they are, recognizing their unique circumstances and providing the support and therapy necessary to lay the groundwork for a lasting, sustainable recovery. Each client, upon arrival, will be assigned a primary therapist who will work carefully to customize a treatment plan that will serve as the foundation of their recovery. Through counseling, group therapy, and individual therapy sessions, each client will learn the basic tools to regain control of their lives. We treat each and every client with respect and compassion so that they can learn to heal and grow.

Specialization

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
    EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • EMDR
    Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. After successful treatment with EMDR therapy, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced.
  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • DBT
    Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a therapy designed to help people suffering from mood disorders as well as those who need to change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse.

Great facility with a beautiful campus. Stayed for almost 60 days. By far the best therapy that I\'ve had and I\'ve been to a few treatment cetners over the years. I\'ve recommended this place to a few people and even had a close friend go here. Unfortunately he wasn\'t able to stay for the duration but he I guess he\'s not ready. Alumni is very good and does a great job of creating a sense of community and support. Been attending alumni meetings here for over a year and now online.

    Beachway Therapists are Terrible, They gave me 24 hours to leave with no plan of action because I refused their recommendations to go to anouther facility which is not why I was there, i was there for addiction and childhood trauma first and foremost now I'm home and I don't know what will happen to me. They are so unprofessional in the way they talk to people

    I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your experience at Beachway. I can assure you that all of our staff are dedicated to providing each and every patient with professional and compassionate care. Unfortunately, there are times when we feel we must refer a patient to another facility to ensure the safety of all of our patients. Thank you for your feedback and we wish you the best of luck on your journey.

    We promised a mental health assessment and treatment options and no assessment or treatment was provided. In fact the psychiatrist left the facility. It is a safe environment.

    I just completed 90 days at Beachway and I can't say enough how grateful I am for everyone's support there. It is truly an incredible community of caring people at every level. The facility isbeautiful and calming, everyone from the Techs to the Doctors were so unbelieveably kind. I feel like my whole life and outlook has radically changed in the past few months and I owe it all to these incredible people.
