ABOUT FUTURES OF PALM BEACH
Designed in the sprawling, communal-living style of a Mediterranean villa, Futures of Palm Beach provides a full spectrum of services, including luxury residential addiction treatment, to adults. The facility also treats co-occurring mental health and eating disorders, and detox services are available on-site.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, with a multidisciplinary approach at its core, Futures of Palm Beach employs traditional, holistic, and alternative therapy modalities in an effort to ensure that each client receives effective and personalized programming. Two tiers of care are offered — the Core Program and the Premium Tier. The latter has all the same amenities as the Core Program, plus extra massage and acupuncture sessions, improved living arrangements, personality testing, and more.
In addition to intensive dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), an evidence-based psychotherapy technique utilized at the facility, clients participate in individual and group counseling, biofeedback sessions, recovery coaching, and educational groups. Experiential practices, such as hypnotherapy, nutritional counseling, yoga, massage, acupuncture, and art therapy, complement the traditional therapies.
Futures encourages family members to participate throughout their loved one’s recovery process. During the latter stages of treatment, the facility hosts a three-day family program that offers workshops and family therapy sessions. Additionally, Futures has a dedicated aftercare program, which includes regular check-ins from an assigned life coach for months after treatment completion. Further, those who complete treatment are forever allowed to participate in alumni programming such as meetings, outings, and volunteer opportunities.
The center’s website states Futures of Palm Beach is led by a medical director who is a board certified addictionologist and psychiatrist, the facility’s treatment team consists of Ph.D.- and master's-level therapists, as well as credentialed recovery coaches, dietitians, hypnotherapists, and support staff.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Futures’ website indicates the center prides itself on its spa-like amenities and luxurious environment. Individuals are housed in spacious private rooms with bathrooms, walk-in closets, and TVs. While not in therapy, they are encouraged to cool off in the outdoor pool, relax in the Jacuzzi, and clear their minds in the sitting areas surrounding a meditative Koi pond.
Individuals have access to a fully equipped fitness center, a certified personal trainer (available when clinically appropriate), and tennis and volleyball courts. An on-site chef prepares gourmet meals daily, and clients may use cell phones and laptops with a therapist’s approval.
