Miami Beach Holistic Addiction Treatment Center

309 23rd Street, Suite 200, Miami Beach, Florida, 33139
MBHATC takes a holistic approach toward recovery focusing more on the underlying causes and conditions of addiction. Treatment plans are tailored to suit each individual according to their unique situation. We recognize that recovery is a very personal journey, and although the disease may look similar in different individuals, no two people are the same.

Facility Highlights

  • Miami Art Walk
  • Beach
  • Mindfullness (Meditation and Yoga)


  • Detox

    Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
  • Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Miami Beach Holistic Addiction Treatment Center (MBHATC), located in Miami Beach, Fla., offers partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and standard outpatient treatment for adults struggling with substance abuse, mental health, and co-occurring disorders. While inpatient treatment is not offered, off-site housing is available to clients while they undergo treatment.


In the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), clients receive an individualized treatment plan and multiple private therapy sessions per week. Housing is offered to clients participating in the partial hospitalization program.

The facility’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), one of 287 in the state, allows patients who have completed the PHP component of care to receive treatment that is meant to help them transition into sober living. IOP treatment includes individual therapy, group therapy, and medical assistance.

MBHATC’s Outpatient Program is designed for clients who have either already completed their detox and intensive treatment, or for those who would like the structure of a treatment program but cannot participate in a residential-style or partial hospitalization program. Clients in the outpatient program travel to the facility for therapy sessions and then return home each day.

Throughout treatment, clients have access to various types of evidence-based therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Grief and Trauma processing groups, Relapse Prevention, and EMDR Therapy. Holistic treatment methods such as massage therapy, chiropractic limb stimulation, a biofeedback bed, yoga, and sound healing are also available. It is one of the 76 facilities in Florida to offer acupuncture. MBHATC offers weekend activities such as bowling, boating, movie theaters, local parks, museums, and fishing.


MBHATC’s treatment team is led by a doctor of psychology and includes licensed social workers, master’s-level therapists, licensed mental health counselors, and other wellness professionals.
