Program Overview and Admissions

Program Overview

The typical full program offered at the Beachcomber consists of a 90 day plan, which combines both the Residential and Outpatient levels of care. During early recovery, clients are cared for in a structured living environment which helps them adjust to a sober lifestyle. Once completing the residential portion, clients transition into the Intensive Outpatient Program, where they focus on minimizing urges, managing stress, and other life skills conducive to maintaining long term sobriety.

However, our full 90 day program is not always the best option for clients. Each client’s recovery is unique, therefore each client’s treatment plan is tailored towards their individual needs. Below is a video of our Ft. Lauderdale Clinical Director, Genna Risucci, explaining our program in depth, as well as two of the three owners, Frank and Jim Bryan, who go over some of the program’s finer details.

Admissions Process

Here at the Beachcomber, we try to make the admissions process as easy on our clients as possible. Beginning with the initial contact, whether it is with the client themselves or a loved one seeking help, we try to gauge the situation. This helps determine the severity of the situation, whether there are any health risks involved, and the client’s willingness to begin recovery. Our main objective is to minimize severe withdrawal symptoms by suggesting detox when necessary, and determining the appropriate level of care for the client’s particular needs.

Admissions are scheduled 2 hours before the start of group Monday through Friday at any of our three locations: Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, or Ft. Lauderdale. During the admission process we first have clients sign group confidentiality forms to ensure the sanctity of group discussion, and then perform an evaluation to build an understanding about their history with addiction. Once the client has been admitted, we require for them to attend their first group session that day. This helps the client process any difficulties they may be facing and promotes a commitment towards their own recovery.

We are in-network with most major insurance providers including Cigna, Aetna, United Health Care, Value Options, Humana, and others, and have gained the reputation as a preferred health care provider for many of our in-network insurances. We also offer flexible payment plans for clients without insurance or for those who may have high deductibles. Whatever the case, we are here to work with our clients to ensure they receive the care and treatment they need.

Integrated Addiction

One of our particular focuses when addressing a complex addiction, is to identify any integrated habits or customs a client may have associated with their addiction. These associated mannerisms can act as triggers, causing urges for one addiction when engaging with the other. Most co-occurring disorders are often times linked to one another by some means of use, however this is not a requirement. Any type of action or particular thought the client has associated with their addiction can have the potential to be apart of the client’s integrated addiction.
