When James Bryan founded The Beachcomber in 1976, he had one mission. With the support of his staff he set out to help those who suffered with the pain of alcohol and drug addiction. And the Beachcomber has come a long way since then. Almost forty years later our facility continues to operate with the same efficiency and compassion that Jim Bryan originally envisioned. Only now we have expanded our facilities and resources in order to help those in need. The Beachcomber offers rehabilitation services at three locations in Palm Beach and Broward Counties of South Florida to better serve our clients. We now offer both outpatient and residential type services at multiple locations.
Like a tree spreading its branches, The Beachcomber Outpatient program is a natural extension of our already successful residential program. The sons of our original founder, Frank and Jim Bryan, oversee the development and continued success of our new facilities. The third generation of the family has also come on board and is learning the tools of the trade. Eric Bryan, one of our founder’s grandchildren, joined the Beachcomber after graduating from FSU and has become our assistant Directors at our Ft Lauderdale location overseeing much of the day-to-day operations. With facilities in Ft Lauderdale, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach area, The Beachcomber is one of the oldest privately owned addiction treatment facility in the state of Florida. Moreover, it began as, and continues to be, a family business that is owned and operated by the Bryan family for almost forty years.
