ABOUT NEW OBJECTIVES
Located in beautiful West Palm Beach, Fla., New Objectives is a private residential treatment facility for adults struggling with chemical dependency, as well as co-occurring mental health disorders. New Objectives offers multidisciplinary, gender-specific tracks for men, women, and pregnant women, as well as specialized LGBT programming. While the facility does not provide on-site detoxification, the facility can coordinate with local detox clinics if medically necessary.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
According to the center’s website, an initial assessment that includes family members is used to create individualized treatment plans. Plans typically combine traditional, 12-step based and holistic approaches. Although the length of stay is dependent on each client’s specific needs, New Objectives' residential treatment typically lasts 30 days.
Through evidence-based modalities, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), programming addresses individual clients through process groups and individual therapy that help clients identify any factors that may contribute to addictive behavior. To help develop community-based support networks, clients are also introduced to the principles and practices of 12-Step through attending 12-step meetings and educational fellowship workshops.
The facility's gender-specific tracks are designed to facilitate open and supportive group environments, where topics such as sexuality and relationships may be openly addressed. Specifically, male clients focus on areas of self-management, such as anger and violence, whereas female clients focus on codependency, sexual abuse, and body image. Pregnant and postpartum women have access to treatment that centers around nutrition, physical well-being, and healthy life skills, while the LGBT track may address low self-esteem due to discrimination.
To treat individuals struggling with co-occurring mental health concerns, New Objectives provides disorder-specific counseling sessions, psychiatric evaluations, and ongoing medication management. Along with evidence-based approaches, clients
also participate in recreational and alternative therapies, such as expressive arts, yoga, and chiropractic treatment.
Adults capable of living independently may benefit from the facility's outpatient-based treatments, either a day program that provides a full day of programming or an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Although offering similar programming, these outpatient-based programs allow clients to reside in secure off-site housing at night.
Under the direction of a board-certified psychiatrist, New Objectives employs certified addiction professionals (CAPs), a clinical psychologist, as well as other administrative and admissions specialists. According to the center’s website, New Objectives maintains an intimate staff-to-client ratio of 2:1.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
The center’s website indicates New Objectives operates out of four different buildings, including two upscale, gender-specific residences. Both situated on a lake, each homelike residence features a large outdoor swimming pool with separate whirlpool, spacious communal areas, large double-occupancy bedrooms, and fully-equipped kitchens. According to the facility's website, New Objectives encourages clients to adhere to a "Mediterranean Meal Plan," which emphasizes nutritious, whole foods. However, residents perform their own grocery shopping and meal preparation with other residents. To limit disruptions during treatment, clients are required to turn in their electronics, though therapists may approve laptop use on a case-by-case basis.
