The therapists at Beachway cared about me and they care about people. I also like the fact that they are Christian-based. Pastor Troy's program is awesome. I had a whole lot of stuff when I came and now, my whole life has changed. I hadn't worked since 2009 but now I'm out here and I got a job. Also, when I first got there, I was using a cane and a walker and by the time I left, I was running. I feel so much different. Thank you to Beachway for doing that for me and my family.

Original review: Sept. 17, 2021

Beachway picked you up at the airport and they were very personable. It was nice because they were just talking to you. They weren't like grilling you for information. The whole process was really well and very welcoming. You got introduced to everybody and shown around. The staff was amazing. They really care. Everything in the beginning was just you're not too sure. But they made you comfortable and I actually miss it to this day. It helped me and I'm doing great. They really prepared you for things and got to the root of the problem, which was great.

Every day was not butterflies and roses. But even in the bad days there, they would key in on it and they would try to figure out what was wrong, and they would not say, "Oh, get over it." They really tried to make you feel better, which is good because every day is not going to be great in your work and your family. Beachway helps you with aftercare too, like looking for places and therapists. It was a very nice experience. If I can go back for a week, I'd go back. I wish they could do that and I could go to classes for a week, like a little retreat.

    I worked in administration in a hospital for 15 years, so when I got to Beachway, I knew all the regulations and all the codes that they had. I was trying to throw my weight around because they wouldn't give me my phone. But I've never been around somebody that professional ever. They don't judge anybody and they love everybody. I haven't stopped talking about Beachway to everybody because it's life-altering. They just care about everybody. I can tell that they're not just there for a paycheck.

    The Christian track with Pastor Troy was amazing. I was in his class. He just kept looking at me and talking. It was like he sucked it out of my brain and I was out there bawling on the floor, looking like a baby. It was really freeing to be able to get it out. It was like I have a whole new lease on life and even past that, I have contentment and joy in my life now. And being content, I can have bad times and still be happy. It was like I got to lick my wounds and get fixed without everybody pointing their fingers at me and making fun of me, and accepting me for who I was. So it was very special.

    Beachway's staff were great. When you first get to rehab, you're not in a good state. I wasn't feeling my best but I know they took care of me. The accommodations were good for a rehab and they were comfortable. One of the houses looked old when I went to the house, but other than that, it was clean. Everything was fine and I had no issues.

    My best experience was the trauma treatment and I've been in recovery for some time now. The thing that has helped me was the things I learned in trauma. In trauma treatment, you got a chance to really look back to why you drink or why you take drugs? Like what happened in your childhood or what triggered this, and I think everybody should go through trauma because most of us do have trauma in our life that we have to address. But the other stuff like the groups takes up time and fills in the day. It could work for other people like EBT. I'm big on what actions can I take and not about learning the brain. You’re alcoholic or you’re a drug addict and you want to get back to life and ask, “What can I do?” The learning of all this EBT was a total waste of time. I think they have more groups and classes that focus more on the emotional or spiritual side of it. You could do that outside of rehab in AA or NA.

    After going twice through rehab, whether it's good or bad, always tell people the type of treatment. Also, I haven't received any calls from anybody from Beachway. I understand that's not their responsibility and I don't depend my sobriety on them to be checking back after me, but they should have this “alumni organization” there just to find out. Everybody that went to Beachway paid thousands to go there. Have a once a month call or shoot an email. That’s basic customer service. I think it's important to follow up, which they don't do.

    Everything went very well with Beachway Therapy. I heard about them through word-of-mouth then by looking online and then phone calls. Whenever I called, everybody was very nice and supportive. Everything from the start was wonderful and after I was there about five days was when the lockdown started. Some of the people that had kids or that were older left. Then, they didn't take anybody else in. So, there was a group of us that was there. They maintained it well. We still had our treatment, our groups, we were in our own little bubble and it was great. The classes were top-notch. I enjoyed that somebody was making the food and it was very good. They got a new cook partway through and they went out of their way to get what we wanted.

    The experience with Beachway has given me a very solid foundation. I'm so in touch with some of them to this day and then the group of us that was locked in there together for so long, became like a little happy family. So, we are on our own meetings and zoom things together. We’ve all become very close. I still do some therapy with them via Zoom and it’s been good. With things changing midway, it was kinda hard on everybody but Beachway made the best out of what has happened.

    Original review: Aug. 26, 2020

    I searched for facilities in Florida and Beachway’s website was very good. I liked the mission statement so it seemed fitting. The first day was good. I was welcomed and everybody was kind. The rooms were nice and the food was very good. A lot of times, it was a little on the unhealthy side but it was okay. There were plenty of options so it was good. I was given medication for the side effects of other medication and I feel like I was put on more meds than I should've been. Instead of putting me on medicines on hearing from me that I've been a little upset over the last few days, I should have been getting a session in terms of my coping skills. But it wasn't a huge deal and otherwise, everything was great with Beachway. The experience taught me how easy it is to not use. Immersing myself in work is also a good alternative. So, everything's going well.

    Original review: Aug. 5, 2020

    Beachway was very nice. The 2 counselors I've had were excellent. I had one when I came in and initially went to detox. Then I had another one. I have nothing but positive things to say about them. The facility was outstanding. It felt like I was at a resort. The atmosphere was beautiful. There were water fountains, shrubbery and landscaping. I love it. It made me feel welcome.

    They were giving me so much medicine for seizures and detox and I felt very unsteady on my feet for a while but I had no problem with detox. There was one counselor that was arrogant and I didn’t like that. That might be part of their programs to be that way but there were several of us that felt very uncomfortable around one of the people. But the experience was excellent. I'm still in contact with several of us that were there together. It was very comforting to me to know that they were mature people there. There were quite a few that were close to my age.

    The staff at Beachway Therapy Center were warm and welcoming. They helped me set up aftercare very well. It’s a very nice facility, so it’s comforting to be there during the days that I was there. They have good therapists. They challenge you in different activities to get you thinking for the future. Robin worked hand-in-hand with me in figuring out my aftercare plan and where I wanna go, which has really helped lead to the success I’m having now.

    I was really impressed with Beachway Therapy Center. The people were extremely nice and they made me feel very welcome. They were first-rate.

    Any time that you needed to talk or you needed to speak with someone or you had some issues with some things, you could go to your therapist or you could go to really anyone and just speak to them about it, and they would relay the message and someone would meet with you that’s needed in that area. They were top-notch.

    I gained a lot of tools while I was there to be able to use after I was discharged. I felt like they’ve prepared me through the individual and group counseling classes, the one-on-one therapy. The transformation was overpowering. The whole experience of all it together was life-changing for me. It was very positive. It was really tough in the beginning and all the way through it, but it was worth it at the end.

    Original review: Feb. 20, 2020

    At first, I thought that I’ve been scammed by Beachway Therapy Center because they were an hour late at the airport. I was just waiting all by myself with my baggage and no ride. But when I got there, the intake process was quick and they always gave me some treatment. The staffs were okay. This was my second treatment center in six months. I went to a treatment center in Virginia and I was too embarrassed to go back there. There wasn’t a lot of one-on-ones. It was a lot more groups than individual therapy and some of their therapists were rude. Some of them were from up north and they said I took things personally so I went further south where I lived. They were just a bit rough and could be rude at times, and abrupt. I’m in the medical field myself so I know some of the things that were said, I would never say to a patient personally. I basically got told that I’m just a pitiful Virginia girl that doesn’t know how to take that.

    Beachway Therapy Center was very different and combining them both was a good thing. I do believe in the AA membership in group now, more than I did the first go around. It did set me up for going to meetings myself and these meetings are very helpful to me. So I like that part of it. They did bring in people from outside to do meetings in the evenings and took us to meetings. I see how important they are. That part was good. They just need to deal a bit more individually with people. They were very focused on the trauma center. They treat trauma there and they said I didn’t qualify. But I did choose there because they supposedly treated dual diagnosis. I have suffered with depression for a long time so I thought that I would be getting more treatment both for depression and for substance abuse, but I didn’t. That center is definitely geared towards trauma. Those people got a lot of individual and projects. And they seemed to get what they needed.

    • Optional Christian treatment plan: Patients who prefer may opt for a Christian treatment plan, which includes prayer, meditation and Bible study to include spirituality in the treatment process.

This weekend-long program helps family members recognize the impact addiction has on the family, promotes healthy boundaries between addicts and their family members and helps family members recognize their individual role in the recovery process.
