For all of its coastal beauty and vibrant flora and fauna, Florida is not immune to substance abuse problems. South Florida, in particular, is severely affected by the opioid epidemic sweeping the country.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5,088 Floridians died from a drug overdose in 2017. A year before in 2016, one person died every two hours in South Florida due to an opioid overdose.

Our Programs and Services

To meet the needs of our local communities, programs at The Recovery Village Palm Beach reflect the culture of South Florida and its residents. Our facility proudly welcomes people from all backgrounds, and we customize treatment plans to meet a variety of mental and physical needs, including those of military veterans, members of the LGBTQ+ community, the elderly and more.

Levels of Care

We offer a continuum of treatment programs, with each including personalized medical care and counseling to treat substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions.

  • Medical Detox

    The crucial first step of rehab, detoxification involves cleansing the body of all traces of drugs or alcohol. Because this process can be physically and mentally difficult and withdrawal complications can arise, our medical team monitors each client 24 hours a day during detox. Medical detox allows people to transition to further inpatient and outpatient treatment and lays a firm foundation for a life of recovery.

  • Inpatient Treatment

    Inpatient programming, also known as residential treatment, is a step down from detox but still offers intensive medical care and counseling. Residential treatment offers structured support and supervision while clients stay onsite and participate in counseling and other therapeutic activities. When clients are ready to transition out of residential care, they may enroll in partial hospitalization or intensive outpatient care, as is appropriate for their needs.

  • Partial Hospitalization Programming

    During partial hospitalization programming, clients live onsite at our facility and continue their therapeutic and medical treatment during the day. This program is less intensive than inpatient care and gives people a greater degree of independence as they prepare to transition to lower levels of care.


  • Intensive Outpatient Programming

    Intensive outpatient programs balance autonomy with structure. People who no longer need around-the-clock care can benefit from intensive outpatient treatment. In this level of care, people may still live at the facility but undergo less frequent sessions with doctors and counselors as they continue to build skills for sobriety.

  • Outpatient Programming

    Outpatient rehab is ideal for people who don’t need intensive care for addiction and have a supportive living situation that is conducive to recovery. Clients in this level of care often live at home and commute to our center for daytime medical and therapeutic sessions during the week. Outpatient care requires a strong commitment to recovery as clients typically uphold daily responsibilities like work and home life while in this level of care.

  • Aftercare Planning

    A life of recovery begins with a solid aftercare plan. At The Recovery Village Palm Beach, each client who completes treatment leaves with a detailed plan that outlines follow-up appointments with local physicians and counselors as well as a medication plan (if necessary) and recommendations for support groups in the area.

In addition to living accommodations designed for comfort and care, The Recovery Village Palm Beach offers a blend of therapeutic and recreational amenities. Clients can access amenities as is medically appropriate for their level of care and progress in treatment.
