Beachside Recovery Philosophy
Choosing the right addiction recovery program can often times feel overwhelming. Beachside Recovery Center knows that addiction and substance abuse affects each individual in a different manner. Based on the severity of their addiction and substance abuse history, we customize addiction treatment plans for each of our clients. When it comes to addiction recovery, it is imperative that we help you find the best fit for your situation, in order to create the potential for full and lasting recovery.
Areas of Specialization
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.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.
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.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY
Alumni opinions varied, with several former clients reporting positive interactions with staff, though others complained that the facility wasn’t as professional as they expected.
Alumni described staff as “great” and "nice and caring." M.M. gave treatment effectiveness a perfect five stars and commented: “This is a solid place to go to if you're serious about your recovery. The staff here genuinely cared about helping me get better.”However, some alums were less impressed. “Staff was not supportive,” wrote S.B. “They were combative.”
Several positive responses praised the luxury of Beachside Recovery. “The amenities are insane, one of the houses actually has a movie theater inside of it. Excellent place to get sober,” A.S. wrote.
However, others called the facility a “joke” and felt medical services were a “disaster.” One alum wrote that it was “among the shadier dirt business working in the drug rehab world."
WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY
Echoing alumni feedback, loved ones gave differing opinions of Beachside Recovery. Several loved ones warned others to “stay away” from this facility. Some commented on bad communication with staff members. Jo, the mother of a former client, wrote that her son left treatment after two weeks due to “staff rudeness and poor treatment.” N.C. commented: “Groups were read from packets, staff did not know what was going on and many concerns of clients were ignored.”
However, others thanked the facility for helping their loved ones. “We are so thankful that Beachside was there for her during this difficult time,” wrote Miranda, the sister of an alum. “She was scared to go to rehab but ended up having a great experience.” “Thank you Beachside Recovery Center for helping my brother get sober,” wrote J.R.
