Treatment Insights

Beachway Therapy Center, as a dual diagnosis facility, believes that in order to treat addiction successfully each person must address their own deeper emotional issues. By providing a comfortable and serene space our highly trained therapists and medical staff are fully equipped to design a treatment plan based on each client’s individual needs. We believe in meeting the addict where they are, recognizing their unique circumstances and providing the support and therapy necessary to lay the groundwork for a lasting, sustainable recovery. Each client, upon arrival, will be assigned a primary therapist who will work carefully to customize a treatment plan that will serve as the foundation of their recovery. Through counseling, group therapy, and individual therapy sessions, each client will learn the basic tools to regain control of their lives. We treat each and every client with respect and compassion so that they can learn to heal and grow.

We promised a mental health assessment and treatment options and no assessment or treatment was provided. In fact the psychiatrist left the facility. It is a safe environment.

Best decision I made, wish it didn't take so long though lol....


They provided me with everything I needed to live my life sober. All I need to do is implicate those things.

I owe my life to Beachway. Getting clean is hard regardless of where you go but Beachway had given me the strength and motivation to stick with it. I was there for 45 days and was given great therapy,...


Great location and facility was excellent. Conselors where in recovery themselves. Daily group sessions and AA/NA meeting plenty of free time to learn new activities.


good workouts but not enough treatment. it was ok but not good enough.


Loved one came out with much more positive attitude Loved one felt isolated Appreciated how the program helped my friend stop using permanently by making his sense of self-worth increase.


Strengths: knowledge. friendliness. Weaknesses: cost. my friend was treated for an addiction, he has improved.


Beachway was my 10th treatment center I have gone to in a 16 year span, I can honestly say this is the best I have felt in that time span. I have had clean time before but never have felt like I do no...

Areas of Focus
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a highly specific, research-validated form of therapy that can help people overcome traumatic stress, anxiety and depression. With EMDR, a trained practitioner uses bilateral stimulation, eye movement and touch to stimulate parts of the brain as a patient recounts certain experiences and memories as a way to more thoroughly process uncomfortable, painful feelings.

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.


Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. After successful treatment with EMDR therapy, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced.

Medical Detoxification

Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.


Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a therapy designed to help people suffering from mood disorders as well as those who need to change patterns of behavior that are not helpful, such as self-harm, suicidal ideation, and substance abuse.

Alumni Testimonials
  • Beachway saved my life. It was a beautiful, wonderful and amazing experience. I was bottomed out and they brought my life back to me. I went through calling treatment centers and trying to get some help for my cocaine addiction and they reached out. The owner, Miss Pam, and the therapists, little Brian and big Brian, all of them, were loving, caring, great and wonderful people. When I first got there, I wanted to leave but my therapist talked to me. I made a 360-degree turnaround along with the staff and it was the best move. They really care about my recovery. I'm now doing great and wonderful.
  • Beachway Therapy Center is a nice facility. The techs and therapists are awesome. My therapist, Bryan, is one of the coolest guys I've ever met therapist-wise. He made me feel really comfortable so that I told him everything that I wasn't comfortable saying. This is my third time there but the other times I wasn't ready or willing and open-minded. They informed me about my addiction and gave me all the tools that I need for my post-treatment. It was very helpful.
  • Everyone was so caring and kind. I was really scared before I went there but now I'm living my new life and I'm so grateful to Beachway for everything I learned.
    Leslie G.
  • Before I went to Beachway I had lost my job, the respect of my friends and family. Now I am working again and taking 2 classes at night. I have some amazing new friends in my life and my family is back in my life. I have been home for 3 months now and my life just keeps getting better. Everyday isn’t easy but I do it one day at a time. I still call Matthew from time to time to get advice. He is always there for me and takes the time to talk to me. All I can say is thank you. Beachway and everyone who works there is awesome.
