Whether you’re struggling with your own addiction or looking for ways to help a loved one, it’s important to understand the treatment options available. An outpatient treatment program is helpful, but it’s not quite as intensive as inpatient rehab especially for those with substance abuse problems and co-occurring mental health disorders. As a result, inpatient drug rehab in Palm Beach County, FL, may be more appropriate for people with severe addictions or co-occurring mental health conditions. Located in Port St. Lucie, Florida, Behavioral Health Centers offers a safe, supportive treatment center where adults of all ages can start recovering and learn how to avoid relapse.

If you or a loved one need inpatient addiction and mental health disorder treatment call 772-774-3872 today. We also accept most major insurance policies. Click here to verify if your coverage will pay for your therapy so you can start today.

For some people, a change of environment makes it easier to focus on sobriety and avoid harmful triggers that can lead to drug and alcohol addiction again. That’s why we also serve people from other states, including Georgia, New York and Alabama.

Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Options

At Behavioral Health Centers, we believe in a holistic approach to substance abuse treatment, where medical and clinical treatment methods are combined with compassion, understanding, and a commitment to long-term addiction recovery.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Addiction Treatment

Inpatient treatment is ideal for people with severe addictions and those who don’t have the support they need to recover at home. For example, someone whose spouse refuses to stop drinking or bringing alcohol into the home may benefit from inpatient substance abuse treatment and then later on can proceed to intensive outpatient programs.

This type of treatment is also ideal for people with co-occurring disorders. A co-occurring disorder is a mental health condition that exists in someone who also has a substance use disorder. For people with substance abuse problems and mental health challenges, inpatient treatment presents an opportunity to receive a formal diagnosis and start an appropriate treatment plan.

Drug and Alcohol Detoxification

Drug and alcohol detox is an important step some people must take before entering inpatient drug rehab in Palm Beach County, FL. Detoxification is the process of eliminating drugs or alcohol from the body. This process can produce many uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, including headaches, nausea, vomiting and increased anxiety, with some patients suffering from seizure and hallucinations, making it difficult for many people to detox without medical supervision.

Our drug and alcohol detox program provides an opportunity to detox from drugs and alcohol under the supervision of addiction specialists and experienced professionals. While you’re in detox, you’ll be monitored closely for signs of severe withdrawal symptoms. A licensed professional may also prescribe medications to help control headaches, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, making you more comfortable as your body eliminates harmful substances.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Behavioral Health Centers offer customized treatment for substance use disorders accompanied by mental health issues, ensuring every patient has the opportunity to address their personal obstacles. The dual diagnosis treatment program includes holistic therapies, behavioral health programs and life skills training to reduce the risk of relapse and help people with co-occurring disorders learn how to abstain from alcohol and say no to drugs when they’re faced with challenges.


After someone completes treatment programs at our rehab center in Palm Beach County, FL, it’s critical that they receive ongoing support and recovery services. Once you complete residential treatment at Behavioral Health Centers, you’ll have access to therapy, support groups, medication management and other services to help you stay on the right track.

Insurance Coverage for Rehab

If you have health insurance, you may be able to use your benefits to pay for inpatient drug rehab in Palm Beach County, FL. Under the Affordable Care Act, plans sold via the Health Insurance Marketplace can’t set limits for mental health services that don’t also exist for medical and surgical services. For example, an insurance company can’t cover surgical services at 80% and mental health treatment at only 10%. The Affordable Care Act also designates addiction treatment and other mental health services as “essential health benefits” and mandates all treatment centers across the United States to partner with health insurances for mental health and addiction treatment programs.

Before you schedule your admission, it’s important to understand your plan’s rules regarding deductibles, copays and coinsurance.

Your deductible is the amount of money you must pay out of pocket before your insurance plan pays for services. If your deductible is $1,000, for example, you must pay $1,000 of your own money before your insurance benefits start to cover your treatment. A co-pay is a flat fee for some of the services you receive. Outpatient therapy may have a co-pay of $40 per session. Coinsurance is the percentage of covered services you must pay. On a plan with a 70/30 split, you would be responsible for 30% of the cost and your insurance company would pay 70%.
