I was at Beachway Therapy Center for 45 days and everything was top-notch. I actually am afraid of flying so I took a train there and that was all right. The accommodations were nice and it was like a little apartment studio. I had a shared room and by the time I left, I was good friends with the guy I was with. My therapist, Brian, was great and we had a lot in common. At first he really pushed me and that was not easy.
I was in the detox and it was a process. But they made everything comfortable and there was a lot of sleeping. Everyone was real nice but it got boring. But then, I moved on to Beachway. We had groups and the therapists were great. From my Beachway experience, I think I got some tools for my own post-treatment. It hasn’t been very long but I’m doing part of the deal. I felt like I really needed to get away so that was first and foremost. I do the follow-ups and the alumni thing. But now it’s up to me. I just try to follow the instructions.
After a near death crisis in my son's life, I searched the internet for a dual diagnosis treatment center for alcohol abuse and depression. I was looking for centers in another state and Beachway came up. Not realizing that it was in Florida, I called the number, then hung up when I realized it was not in our state. Thanks to Conner for calling me back and encouraging my son to leave his former environment and travel to Florida for treatment. Since entering the program my son has made tremendous progress in recovery from the issues that almost took his life.
make the difference. The therapists Liz and Dave have called to keep me informed and have made themselves accessible if needed. Everyone at Beachway has been so pleasant and helpful. I thank God and Beachway Therapy for giving my son a new start with many opportunities ahead for a healthy and productive life. I will always be grateful for Beachway Therapy Center.
I was drinking heavily and in a very abusive relationship. So my sister had done some research on therapy centers. And when I’ve finally left that situation and went to my mom’s house, it was about Christmas time so my sister was home and we looked through some of the treatment centers that she had found. We called one out in California but for some reason my insurance suggested another place in California or Beachway. We're in Texas so Florida, beach sounded nice. My sister and I gave them a call and we did the intake which was quick and simple. Then it was about four days from the time I called them until we were driving out to Florida.
Upon arrival at Beachway I was scared because I was gonna be several states away from my family and by myself. But they were very nice and they let us walk through the treatment center. They let us meet some of the people whom I'll be seeing when I'm there. They showed us where they have lunch, where the sessions are and the activities that they do. They give the opportunity for the ladies to go and get manicures and some self-care type of thing so they won’t feel totally like a fish out of water. That kind of gets you back into who you are as a human being and that it’s okay to take care of yourself.
My parents dropped me off there to detox and the detox center was fantastic as well. They had a room that was open so they let me go in and look at it. I was petrified of being dropped somewhere I’ve never been before with no one I know and no way to contact anybody. I’m sure they could see that emotion on my face but everybody was very calm. They answered every question that I or my family had and gave us more information. So my family and I felt very comfortable. It was really a smooth experience.
I love the staff at Beachway. They were absolutely wonderful. They were very nice and kind like a mom. But they also put you in check when you start to step out of line – keeping order to the chaos. And it’s not easy when you have people who are used to living a certain way to keep them in order. They were always very supportive and there was always someone available to talk to. So like the staff in group, that was especially hard to deal with because group sessions brought out some deep-seated emotions. But I could always excuse myself from the group and there was always a tech available or a staff member at the Beachway facility itself to talk to. Everybody genuinely wants to help.
The experience at Beachway helped me along with getting a sponsor and going through steps in doing some external work, not just at the facility itself but also on my own. Beachway helped me to see that what I’ve been doing isn’t the way I need to continue to live and I don’t have to go back to that chaos that I was in. At the same time, there are also things that I could do to help prevent me from going back to that. There are some warning signs and there are people whom I can talk to about my situation. There’s a plethora of preventative maneuvers to help keep me on the right track.
I’ve been at Beachway Therapy Center twice. The first time I was there, I had a bad relationship with my therapist. He wasn’t very honest, but he doesn’t work there anymore. The second time around, the only issue I had was them kicking me to the curb with no time to prepare for another place to go to. I ended up finding another place though, thank God. And then I was behind on some rent, and they weren’t stern about some rules. Other than that, everything went smoothly. They definitely provided me with the knowledge and the tools to be successful post treatment. Treatment isn’t gonna do the trick, and it’s obviously getting out in the real world again because that’s what really kicks in when it really hurts. But it got my foot in the door most definitely. It was a good experience, overall. They had a couple things they needed to work on, but every business does.
The staff from Beachway Therapy Center was really friendly and supportive. They're very welcoming and if I had any issues, they were willing to talk or just listen. That was really nice of them. However, I was surprised because the website is a little bit misleading. The pictures and some of the activities that were told were not as often or just a little less than what they described on the website. But I was pretty out of it when I got there so I was just confused with the whole situation. Also, it was hard to get information on what was gonna happen in the future or the plans but that's understandable.
Nevertheless, this is the happiest I've been since the last time. And even though I'm still having some upsetting situations, I'm dealing with it a lot better. I was pleasantly surprised by the progress I've made. I strongly recommend Beachway Therapy Center to others. I would tell them that the therapists are amazing, very educated and worth it.
My mom went looking for different therapy centers and she happened upon Beachway on the internet. I showed up there pretty nervous. Then a couple of guys introduced themselves and made me feel very comfortable. It was very all new to me 'cause it was my first time I've ever gone to treatment, but they're very friendly and very calming. I really love the staff, like Nash, Johnny, Christina, and Dana. They were absolutely great. They're very friendly and cool. I couldn't believe it when I was shopping for food and one of the guys took me shopping. He was really cool and told me about Beachway too.
Beachway definitely helped me out a lot. I had no skills before, like I could not survive on my own 'cause I didn't know how to be sober, but now I've been over a year sober. I'm going to New York for three months to try to see what it's like there 'cause I've never been there, and I wouldn't be able to do any of this without Beachway first and foremost, and then the IRP helping me to get used to this sober way of living.

The experience I had with Beachway Therapy was good and I loved it. I liked their orientation and the checking in. It was a different experience for me to help me get out of my comfort zone mostly. The staff at Beachway cared and there was a lot of one-on-one. My treatment helped me build a lot of confidence. Right now, I’m up every week and I check in with the alumni coordinator. But the staff could work on being on time with doing stuff, like leaving the center going to the residence because there was a lot of times it'd be 40 minutes. Instead of them taking out the trash and doing what they were supposed to do they'd sit in the office and talk.
I was ordered to be in a therapy center because of a DUI. There were only two centers that would fulfill that and since Beachway was closer, I chose them. I told them upfront all of my concerns. Since I was court-ordered, I told them that that needs to be satisfied so I will have a certificate which will say that I've finished my time here. I also wanted to make sure that my insurance covered all the pay and so far, it has. It's $1,500 a day and I'm not too awfully concerned about paying but I believe that it is a bit much for what we're not getting. What the brochure described and what my rep told me about the area was hardly the same as what I saw when I got here. The online brochure painted the facility as a country club-like setting and it isn't like that at all. It's very bleak, terrible, and it's a totally offsite deal where they take us to.
Most of the staff are recovered addicts. We've got them passing our meds and they just know what's going on by experience because they've been there, done that. Then, as far as the therapy staff goes, there are only less than five actual therapists that work in-house and five that comes in who may or may not be degreed. I wouldn't know that and it's not noted that they are or aren't degreed. But they're the ones that do our therapy classes and other than them, there are guys that drive the vans, hand out meds, and run around. They also have turnover like crazy. I think four years is long for anybody who works here and they have people that have worked here for two weeks. They're always short on staff.
The first 30 days were very intense, and possibly 60 days depending on the situation. They keep you busy all day long. After that, they’re more lenient and allow you to have more time to get out and do things. They encourage you to go out and get work and they have different therapy things like going horseback riding. They also have done some things with us, taken us fishing and bowling and has given us the opportunity to go to church, meetings, and things like that. They also give us a break time.
But we all have the same class. They've got alcoholics and drug addicts thrown in with people who have codependency problems and people who are bipolar. It also doesn’t matter if you’re 19 or 60 years old. Once you’ve been here for so long, they have steps that you can go through as far as what they do with you. The basis of the system here is take the money and give the cheapest they could provide for however much time we have to stay here for whatever reason it may be.
Also, they encourage everybody to get a sponsor as quickly as possible and they tell us to work the program. That's where their healing of the issue is and there’s no real magic or anything that goes on here as far as their part goes. They 100% depend on AA for the rehab and it’s all up to you. It’s going to be up to everybody’s own individual situation of whether or not they want to change advice. They help and take you to meetings but that's all they do.
This is a program that is set up very well for young people that are just starting out in life and for older people that might need a break. People have claimed that this is one of the better places but I won't come back. We got a little bit more freedom and they do check us out and do things with us. I also have learned stuff here but I’ve been here almost 90 days and I don’t think I’m fixed. For the most part, it's just worthless. I haven’t had a drink in 90 days but only because of the situation that I’m in. Next time I'll just sit and go to jail.
Hi Frank, thank you for sharing your feedback about our program. We take all feedback very seriously and I will share this information with our program directors so that they are aware of your experience. We hope that you continue to stay sober and we wish you well on your journey. Please feel free to contact us if there is anything that we can do for you.
Beachway Therapy Center is the best treatment center I’ve ever been to. I went to treatment two other times before Beachway and it just never really clicked like it did with Beachway. The first treatment center I went before was absolutely awful and it sucked. It was a 21-day treatment facility and I didn't learn anything in those days. I have to do everything while I was in some meds for detoxing. It was like two weeks of actual treatment ‘cause I was still half-dead the first week.
The Beachway facility is clean and organized. It was just like an opening environment. The staff was really welcoming, friendly, loving, caring, and compassionate about what they do. They really carve on the people when they know that they’re not totally getting and they do their job very well. Dan was the first person I ever talked to when I first got there and he totally made my experience amazing. He made all the paperwork and prep that I had to deal with go by really quickly. Bryan and Dave, my two therapists, were absolutely awesome as well.
All the different groups there were super helpful. My favorite one was the relapse prevention group as I consider myself a chronic relapser ‘cause I’ve been through treatment so many times and tried to get sober so many times. The spirituality that they have there was really cool too. Then the morning meditation group, like the one that they split everything into male or female, was totally awesome. I love the morning group with all the women in the community and that we could just talk about our craft.
I did 45 days in PHP and I did another 45 days in IOP and all the skills that I learned helps me to be more successful in my recovery. I’m on my halfway right now. This is the longest time I’ve ever been sober and it was nice. James was phenomenal and he still calls me to this day to see how I am doing. He has me turned the alumni meetings now. He is just really into how everybody is doing and making sure that everyone is doing okay while they are there and even while they are gone and making sure that we can find jobs and help us fill our resumes. I would absolutely recommend Beachway to anybody that I know who is struggling with addiction.
My mom found Beachway Therapy Center for me. I was in bad shape but the check-in went well. Everyone was really nice and the process wasn’t too lengthy. I felt comfortable and their staff were really awesome. They were very knowledgeable and disciplined. More than any other treatment centers I’ve been to, they equipped me to be successful on my own post-treatment. It was a great transition from being an inpatient to IPO and they helped me find a halfway house. One of the alumni people called me today to check on how I was doing.
My mom found Beachway Therapy Center online and it was the first one she found that was a dual diagnosis. I was picked up by First Step Detox at the Orlando Airport and went through detox. I was there for five days and it was rough, and then we got to Beachway on a Sunday. The staff gave me the tools I needed and they took me to meetings every night. I also have a mental health disorder and they helped me out tremendously in my whole stay there.
I was transported to Beachway from a detox center. They had the intake employee pick me up and bring me there. I went straight to the residences where I would be living during my stay. When I first arrived at Beachway, they allowed me to call a guardian and let them know I was there. I was transported to the actual therapy center and went through an intake process. It was a lot of questions and signatures. The staff was great. They were very respectful and courteous. The apartments were great as well and they almost seem brand new. All the appliances were good and everything was clean. It had a homey feel to it. The insides were flawless and spacious.
During my treatment, there were always techs around the residence and they respected boundaries. They monitored us and they were good at doing their job strictly. They made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, like when we all needed to be rounded up to go to a meeting or to the actual therapy center. They always had head counts. They woke us up in the morning and it consisted of a knock on the door then I have time to get ready. The therapists were good as well. If I needed to talk to one, they made sure that they made time to talk to me. They listen to me too. If I had a request, they tried to accommodate my needs to the best of their abilities within what they could do. They were all professional.
Through my experience, what I've learned to be the backbone of sobriety is within meetings. They made sure that they took us to meetings every single night so we could experience the real solution and to nudge us in the right direction. They understood that there needed to be more than just treatment in order to stay sober. They cared about our well being after we left treatment. Those meetings every night were really important and a big plus. I've been out nine months and I'm still sober today. What keeps me sober is what I learned by going to Alcoholics Anonymous' meetings. They prepared me extremely well for post treatment. If anyone is seeking help, I would definitely recommend Beachway.
I was looking for longer-term treatment programs and I came across Beachway Therapy Center, and I read some of their reviews. I’ve done everything that they’re offering. I was their inpatient for 45 days, I did the intensive outpatient program and I’m still in their OP program. They gave me a lot of suggestions that I'm following, and so far, it’s working on me. Beachway's staff was good. My therapist helped me out a lot, and I really enjoyed working with him.
I called my friend who worked at Beachway and asked for help. He got me in touch with someone and I called them. I called the admissions guy, Connor, and he was great. He talked to my sister. He kind of educated me about it and answered questions that she had about insurance, finances, and logistics. It was pretty quick. From calling in, I was down there two days later. I had flown down from New York. I was little nervous and freaked out. It was hard to remember but there was a lot of filling out paperwork and questions. Somebody met me there and just kind of walked me through it. The first thing you have to go, see a doctor which was probably good because I haven’t been to a doctor a long time. She was really nice. Then, they showed me around where I was going to be staying and what the schedule was like. I was there for 45 days.
Everybody was really friendly and really nice. Everybody came up to me and said hi, all the different therapists, all the staff, checked in to make sure that I had everything I needed. That’s where it started. I met some people there that I had a good connection with and we hang out most of the time. I’m still in touch with a couple of guys. They don’t live up here where I am. But I want to go down there. "You can’t do it on your own." That was a big emphasis there with all the alumni stuff. We went to meetings, a lot of outside meetings, different types of support groups. After I settled in, I just wanted to do most of it. Those therapists were really good. I feel like they set me up pretty good. I have a therapist here and I’m doing outpatient. I’m going to meetings. I’m just following their path that they laid out because I feel great. I will definitely recommend Beachway.
I came across Beachway Therapy Center when I did an internet search. Everybody from this place was accommodating and very helpful. The staff oriented me and introduced me to everybody. It was a tough transition but they made sure that I had what I needed and that everything was okay in terms of my comfort. My therapist, Bruce, was amazing and a really cool guy. The experience was pretty new to me and he helped me out. He was a pretty smart guy and I had my biggest change from our one-on-one.
I came to Beachway Therapy Center for wine abuse. My sister found the place and made the calls for me. At that time, I was working where I couldn't make any type of phone calls for anybody to be very discreet. Everything was great when I got to Beachway. The staff were very sensitive and didn’t make me feel that I was in prison. But I had one incident with a tech from a detox center who made me feel the opposite. I reported it because although Beachway wasn’t expensive, my family paid out of the pocket to get me there.
Another thing that I don’t agree with Beachway is mixing the young people with the older people. I get why Beachway do it but so much time is spent on a young person wanting to escape, get high and not take the program seriously. This one girl was there for a week before they shipped her off. And she even sexually harassed me but I told her I don't go that direction. I was there for something else and not to be caught up in some childish, stupid scenario. There were also two people who I think were in the wrong facility because theirs were mental cases. Too much time was spent on trying to get these people out then all of a sudden, the whole facility focused on them. I look at everything in a business way and I don't know if Beachway took them in to make some money then shipped them somewhere else.
I've been out for almost three months now. I'm in shock that I've never heard back from my counselor or the guy who helped me to get in to Beachway. The only person I've heard back from was James. He's the guy who runs the computers and he reached out to me about the alumni online meetings and other similar things. He’d also call me every once in a while. But I loved my experience at Beachway. It was a vacation and I always tease my family that I want to go back there. For me, I was at a crossroads at the time and it was what I needed to do. I feel more confident and healthier now. I would recommend them to people that I feel really need it.
A friend told me about Beachway Therapy Center. And I don't live in Florida so I had to fly down there and Jay picked me up from the airport and drove me to the center. I liked the staff a lot. Jay and Derek are really nice guys and they helped me out a lot. Also, the therapists were the best. My experience with them was very good and what I learned there is going to help me now that I'm home because before, I didn't have any support. And now, I'm going to meetings, taking the suggestions that they told me to do, and I'm really trying to do things differently like they said. I feel really lucky and I wish everybody could go. And I already recommended Beachway to my friend but he can't afford it.
My daughter did some research and got me in connection with Beachway Therapy Center. When I got there, everything was awesome. The check in process was organized and their facility was wonderful. Everybody in support classes was knowledgeable and very professional. We also had techs who were awesome at the really cool residence place. All the staff was tremendous, very caring, and genuine. They seem to all had been there before, although not at that facility, and now they've taken to sober as their vocation. I went in for alcohol and it was the first time I've ever been in a treatment facility so I didn't know what to expect. But it was great because we had our own apartment where we cooked and it kept me flowing with the normal things of life while dealing with getting everything else taken care of.
I'm a beach dude and I live Oceanfront in Cocoa Beach which is a party town. I had a minor stroke but I'm in great shape because I'm a surfer and I work out. I've never taken meds in my life but I have to take some because of that and now I'm only taking one. I'm smart enough to know I couldn't continue my party times and I've got Beachway to wean me off. I had a very positive experience at Beachway and they did a great job. I had no issues and I haven't had any desire for alcohol. Today's day 81. I'm very glad I went to Beachway. It was an overall wonderful experience and I would recommend them to anyone.
Upon my arrival at Beachway Therapy Center, they were very organized. The intake process was smooth and went well. My therapist, Brian, was in recovery and I related a lot to him. I felt very open with him immediately. The techs were very friendly and easy to work with. We initially went over my addiction and what causes me to drink. But more than that, we focused on what the solution was going to be. Going forward, none of the past is going to change itself. It is what it is. We focused instead on what to do to fix the future and that was a great help for me.
Although I've been gone from there for almost three months, I'm still in contact with them. I go up there and when I come in, they all still know my name and they're glad to see me. Generally, they're good people and they had a very loving situation there. There was a lot of caring in the way that the staff approached the different personalities that were there. Overall, I had great experience at Beachway.
It took 30 years but I got myself to Beachway Therapy Center on my own doing and so I was a little more open-minded. Checking in was easy and it was nice to be at the center. Everybody was great and my therapist was professional and amazing. I would recommend it.
I did some serious research and Beachway stood out based on reviews and doing diagnosis. Dan was incredible on my intake. He was very pleasant and accommodating. After they said my insurance had a problem, I wasn't very happy. But Debbie and Dan both said, "Don't worry. It's taken care of." Also, the living accommodations were perfect. I was not only in a clean house, but it was cleaned every week. The people I lived with were neat and clean, so it was very nice. We did have a problem with some construction of a stage, which made us join some groups that between males and females, we wouldn't have otherwise joined, and that was awkward. But everybody from the technicians to the therapists was awesome. My therapist Bruce challenged me, but he still listened. Overall they have given me the techniques to be successful. They have done incredible things, not only for me but for other people I saw there.
When I got at Beachway, the guy that met me at the airport was awesome and he made me feel at ease like I was in the right place. He took good care of me and eased my mind before I even got there. It was nighttime when I arrived 'cause I missed my first flight. He took me on over to the residence 'cause the treatment center was closed at the time. They were helpful too and welcomed me right in. I had to go on and go to detox but he accommodated me over there. He didn't even get through with getting me all settled in 'till about 4:00 in the morning.
The treatment center was wonderful. They gave me so much hope and made me believe that I did have a chance of changing my life. They were patient with me and accommodating as far as my needs or my age. I learned so much about my disease, how to arrest it and how not to go back to it. My therapist was fabulous and she helped me in getting to the core of my problems. She was so patient, kind and loving to me. I couldn't have done it without her. She was my backbone and the other therapists helped a whole lot too. Then I have other issues like mental health and the doctors were all very helpful. I also had a bout with a lump in my breast and they took me to the places where I needed to be to get that taken care of. Overall, they did everything I needed.
The food, the housing and the transportation is great. I've been to other treatment centers and Beachway is by far one of the best I've ever encountered. They are changing lives. In other treatment centers, I learned about my disease, but in Beachway, they got to the core of my disease and that's what I was impressed with. Also, I left messages on a bunch of therapy centers at about 3:00 in the morning and Beachway was the first one to call me the next morning. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. I recommend Beachway Therapy to anybody who's struggling.
Beachway picked me up at the airport and they drove me directly to detox which was something I wasn’t aware of. They didn't explain it before I got there, so that was a bit of a negative. Before being transferred to a treatment center, I was at Beachway for four days which is relatively short, since most people are there for seven. During that time, they monitored my withdrawal and made sure that I'm okay medically. They took my blood pressure and pulse about every four hours, including midnight and four in the morning, and they woke me up to do that. Also, some of the techs were a bit not as friendly as they could have been, maybe because they’re having some negative experiences with some of the people that run the treatment. But overall, the staff was great.
It was an interesting experience that I had to detox first then when I got to Beachway, the community was very welcoming. John, one of the techs there, helped me through a lot of things. I felt like some of the other techs didn't care, but the others did because they’ve been through it. I enjoyed joining the groups. Those really helped me keep my sanity in there. I didn’t like the location for the residents, though. The apartments were all right, but I was housed right next to the trains and that was annoying.
Before coming to Beachway my life was a complete train wreck. I was lost in life trying to find a way to do the right things to be a successful member of society. I was unsure of who I was as a person and I was very unsure what I wanted to do with my life because of all the damage I had caused through my drinking as well as my drug use. I was trying to mask all of my problems with a mind altering substances so that I could cope with everyday life. It was like I was in a hamsters wheel and I was unable to jump out. I was running in the fast lane and it was a dead lane. I was so insecure that I had contemplated suicide.
When I got to Beachway I was welcomed with open arms and I could tell right away that the staff generally cared about the well being of my life. Beachway saved my life and for that I am very Grateful. The therapist are wonderful and are very well equipped in what they do on a daily basis. Life skills were taught to me so that I can implement them in my everyday life. I was given tools to use in coping with my alcoholism which was a huge benefit for myself moving forward to bettering my life. Accommodations were made to help me build a better foundation in my recovery. I am Comfortable in my own skin and I am very confident in my abilities now. I was challenged to follow very simple suggestions that were given to me by my therapist to help improve the quality of my life. Also getting out of my comfort zone to do things that I would normally not do was very vital in my recovery process.
Today I am very confident in what I have to do in my everyday life and I see the bright spots that life has to offer. I have come to terms with my alcoholism and I embrace any challenges that I may face with positive methods instead of doing destruction to my body. The quality of life that I have today is something that I am very proud of. Opportunities are limitless now due to the direct result of having sobriety for the first time in my life.
I heard about Beachway Therapy Center from the detox I went to. The people there were very friendly, helpful, accommodating, and supportive. It was a very nice facility. The apartment was mansion-like, after all it's in South Florida. I had a good experience there. I definitely feel more confident now and that I have a strong support system.
My son and my aunt independently went online to help my wife find me a therapy place, and both of them came across Beachway Therapy Center based on the reviews that they had read. But then all of that extra services the place provided was what really had my son and aunt separately call my wife to tell her that they found it. And it's an hour and a half drive from my home so it wasn't just somewhere that they knew about because they drive by there everyday, which to me was also important.
When I arrived at Beachway Therapy Center, I had a pleasant and friendly experience. There's not a lot of people running around and not a lot of things going on. The facility was clean. It looked like a family room. They had some couches and it was very inviting. The staff members were very receptive to my concerns. They allowed me the opportunity to answer questions at length. They asked me if I had any special needs. I sleep with a CPAP machine and they immediately made sure I had proper hookups. They were really accommodating in asking me what my needs were.
They had a lot of Bible-based programs during my stay and I also had follow-up meetings and sessions with the therapist during my stay there. Subsequent to my getting back into my regular routine, they've continuously called me to check up on me. I absolutely have a strong support system through them. They had a lot of relaxation-type therapies like the Biochar with relaxing music and soothing, subliminal messages. They also offered massages, physical therapy for tension, acupuncture and Equine therapy. There were very busy and long days but they offered a complement of other things to do to work on the spirit, the body and other ways to get well. That was a big positive. I agreed to do this because I would love to have people ready my comments and them say that it's also what they'd want. I'm glad I went there. I feel I left with the necessary tools I need to be successful in my recovery.
I felt welcomed when I arrived at Beachway Therapy Center. I was greeted really well with open arms. I felt comfortable being there and I was able to get really close to the staff and get to know them really well. The facility was good. It was all up-to-date. They have given me the stepping stone, the push-start I needed in my recovery. They set me up for success, and they showed me the right path and what to do. It was a life-changing experience.
Daniel from Beachway Therapy Center brought me to his office and started going over the program with me as I was planning of doing what they call "intake". There were few things that didn't quite jive with what their marketing material online had said and what I gauged from my initial conversation when I decided to go there. But we got through all of that and everything worked out. They were understanding but they definitely seemed understaffed and that probably stressed a lot of them out. People going into a situation like that tend to be fairly emotional. We were obviously a needy bunch but a lot of times it would seem like we were hassling them if we're asking for something that we needed done.
Nonetheless, it definitely gave me some time that I needed to get cleaned and pointed me in the right direction as far as how to continue to live like that. There were definitely some great therapists there, and great technicians. Their PA was really awesome. He really helped me out. The medical side really need some work though. It was very difficult to get in and a lot of people who get in this situation need high levels of medical care. It was definitely difficult to be seen by a doctor and to feel that needs were adequately being met. Overall, it was eye opening. It definitely benefited me without a doubt.
Hi Matt, thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. We really appreciate your comments, especially on the need to improve the medical side (getting easier and quicker access to medical care). We've already made some huge improvements to ensure that all of our clients receive the highest level of medical care as soon as possible. Thanks again Matt and keep up the good work!
Beachway Therapy Center is a drug rehabilitation center, and I was high and I don't remember what the hell happened when I got there. However, I felt welcomed, comfortable, and safe as the program progressed, and it went fine. This experience had given me the beginnings of a foundation that I used to stay in my post-treatment.
The people at Beachway were really nice but the facility could use a little more interior decorating help and improve the atmosphere within the center because it felt like a funeral home. Also, my sister had told me that it's like holistic but I was a disappointed. I had never been to treatment before and being there for a little over a month was like I'm in a holding tank but it was really beneficial. Running through past events and helping me to acknowledge all the damage, I really don't want to go there again. It helps me realize all the destruction I was doing and I'm really glad that I went.
