Areas of Specialization
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

ABOUT JOURNEYPURE EMERALD COAST
Situated next to the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, JourneyPure Emerald Coast in Panama City Beach, Fla. provides upscale residential treatment, outpatient-based programs, and aftercare services for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. One of six residential facilities operated by JourneyPure, a well-recognized treatment provider, the Emerald Coast facility also provides medically-monitored detoxification services on-site. In addition, the facility offers a faith-based treatment track.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before beginning treatment, clients participate in an initial assessment to guide clinicians in forming an individualized treatment plan. If a client requires supervision and structure to acquire and sustain sobriety, the individual may be referred to the residential program. Emerald Coast’s residential program blends evidence-based treatments, 12-step participation, and experiential therapies in a therapeutic community model of recovery.
During residential treatment, clients participate in a highly-structured schedule of individual and group counseling sessions, 12-step immersion workshops, and experiential therapies. Residents attend off-site 12-step meetings each evening and complete 12-step assignments that guide residents in “working the steps.”
Clients participate in daily group therapy sessions and at least two one-on-one therapy sessions per week. Dually diagnosed clients may also attend disorder-specific counseling sessions and receive ongoing medication management. If possible, Emerald Coast also encourages loved ones to participate in family counseling and educational classes.
Along with traditional therapy approaches, Emerald Coast also integrates a number of experiential therapies, including equine therapy, musical and artistic expression, wilderness outings, and recreational therapy. Holistic therapies, such as yoga, guided meditation, spiritual counseling, and nutritional counseling, is also incorporated into programming.
Along with the clinical and experiential approaches, the Lighthouse Christian Program incorporates Bible-based teachings, daily devotionals, and prayer into treatment. Residents involved in the faith-based program also have the option to attend Celebrate Recovery meetings, a Christian-focused recovery fellowship.
Utilized as both a stand-alone program and aftercare service by residential alumni, the facility’s outpatient programs consist primarily of group counseling sessions, family therapy, and educational classes.
