Life-changing, Genuine, Intelligent, Professional, Results driven, Sincere, Caring, Respectful, Upscale and Clean are just some of the words that immediately come to mind after having spent time in this facility for treatment. Every staff member from management to the daily routine tech's displayed nothing short of genuine honesty and concern for my well-being and success.
I could never fully express my gratitude for the therapy and the therapists who provided it. Their combined experience, sincerity, professionalism and intuitiveness have changed my life forever. I consider everyone I encountered there a newly extended family and I intend to stay in touch and visit as often as possible. I Highly Recommend Beachway to anyone who is battling with any type of addiction and I wish you well in your efforts to set any fears and apprehensions you may have aside and find peace on your path to recovery.
I had a friend who knew somebody who went to Beachway and he reached out to my sister and said it was a good place. Then, she called Beachway and helped me get it set up. They took it from there. I was at a detox first which is a medical part of it and it was good. Then, when I got to Beachway, I met with Dan and he helped me out a lot because I was missing some things. He was able to take me to the store and get some basics. Everybody was nice and helped me get settled in and set up.
The accommodations were nice. I had a younger roommate and I haven't had a roommate in a while, so I was a little nervous about that, but we got along pretty good. We had a TV in our room and we played cards. We became pretty good friends. He left a little earlier than I did, but he was a big help when I got there because he had been there and I was new.
There was a lot of activities. At first, it was a little overwhelming because there are groups and therapy sessions. It was so much but after a while, I got settled in. The therapists were pretty smart because they didn't push me until I was really ready. I'm glad that they didn't. I probably would have been pretty frustrated. And the experience during the setup for the post-treatment was pretty good. It was a little bit of a tough transition to come out of there but I got some really good advice. They gave me like a roadmap with certain things that I do and as long as I do those things, I try not to get too overwhelmed. Also, I talk to James. He calls me and they have a computer meeting which I wanna do. And I'm going to continue a program. I would encourage everybody to give it a shot and don't wait too long because I did. I was a little terrified and I didn't need to be.
My mom was looking for a place with dual diagnosis, and Beachway Therapy Center was the first thing that popped up. I was depressed for a couple of weeks and then something changed when Beachway put me in touch with the guy that my sponsor knew. They put me in touch with the right people, the people that came in there that brought the meeting, and I ended up being sponsored by one of them. Now, I'm one of the guys that goes to Beachway.
The accommodations were really nice. My counselor, Liz, she was really great. She seemed to understand depression well. There was one therapist there named Dana, and her work is really good. They really call you out on your stuff. Everybody at Beachway was really nice, and you could tell that people care. I would encourage others to go to Beachway. The people I met through the center are good at what they do. They know who's telling the truth and who's not because they've gotten so much experience. You get your money's worth.
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.
