Since medical concerns arise outside of scheduled appointments, RNs are always available at the West Palm Beach treatment center to address any health care concerns immediately. They also conduct regular assessments and ensure compliance for all medications.
Because we are a licensed dual diagnosis drug rehab, we treat all underlying issues like depression and anxiety to end the cycle of addiction. Clients get the correct type and dosage of mental health medications to overcome these difficulties in a safe, controlled environment.
Medications won’t cure addiction, but they can be life-changing in early recovery. Anti-craving medications address the addiction directly, allowing individuals to focus on self-reflection and healing.
A pioneering new form a treatment, neurofeedback retrains brainwaves to function normally to overcome the damage caused by drugs and alcohol. Eventually, the brain learns to self-regulate and make healthier decisions.
Meeting with a clinical therapist regularly in specialized groups helps identify and alleviate the various issues that lead to addiction. Using the latest evidence-based counseling methods, individuals make positive behavioral, mental and emotional changes while supporting one another through the process.
Individuals attend educational groups to learn about topics ranging from the addiction process to nutrition. Special guests, including successful alumni and recovery comedians, provide critical information in a relatable way.
Behavioral Therapy is a form of healing conversation. The purpose of routine therapy sessions is to guide those seeking help toward making personal changes in their lives. The desired changes are usually stated as goals at the beginning of the therapeutic process and re-examined at each session.
Attending daily 12-step meetings allows the individual to get connected with the community outside of residential treatment. 12-step meetings are the most widely available set of guiding principles that aid in recovery from addictive and compulsive behaviors.
Loved ones are invited to a family weekend in South Florida to begin healing and rebuilding relationships. Research conclusively shows that these support systems are critical for maintaining recovery after leaving inpatient treatment.
Recovery Mentors give recovering addicts and alcoholics someone to turn to who has traveled the road to recovery and succeeded. The mentor bridges the gap between clinical and clients and encourages assignments and social activities.
Past events often perpetuate substance abuse and addictive behaviors. Specialized therapists use evidence-based techniques like Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to guide clients through the healing process in a safe, controlled setting.
Daily forms of meditation assist the individual in recognizing and eliminating self-sabotaging beliefs and habits while enhancing the strength and confidence to make the positive changes that are needed. These practices are easy to incorporate into daily life long after leaving the drug and alcohol rehab facility for long-term recovery.
Recovery doesn’t have to be boring. It is important to not isolate and engage in self-sabotaging habits. Finding other people to relate to in recovery will provide support well beyond the time at the West Palm Beach treatment center.
Resume building, job interviewing and even cooking are taught to facilitate independence when re-entering the “real world.” These skills help with self-resilience to build a more productive lifestyle outside of the treatment facilities.

If it’s your first time, know that drug or alcohol rehab is not a prison. It is not scary or a waste of time.
You’re always surrounded by support — from case managers, therapists and physicians to a small group of other clients fighting the same fight. You’re supervised 24/7 to avoid temptation, but living with people your own age who can personally relate to your struggle.
Rehab is a time to focus on yourself and your feelings. You have to understand what’s driving your negative actions to have the power to make healthier choices. It’s a time to relax, heal and re-examine what’s really important. While you work on yourself, you might even make new friends and have a little fun. You’ll definitely come out feeling better.

Ambrosia stood behind me when I had to make hard decisions regarding my daughter, instead of allowing her to negotiate with me. They did not fall for her manipulation tactics like previous treatment facilities. They recognize that the past cannot be changed and focus on looking at the future. I could not imagine a more caring and professional organization.
Before flying down to Florida, my life was a complete loss. I went to many, many treatment centers and detoxes before, but the therapists, nurses and entire staff made coming to Ambrosia worth it. Since leaving, I feel my life is worth living. I feel better than I have in over a decade, both mentally and physically. Do yourself and your future a favor and don’t put this off.
Ambrosia has an amazing staff who always go above and beyond. This facility really stands out from the rest due to their dedication to helping not only people with substance abuse problems, but also help their loved ones get through this difficult time.
The West Palm Beach treatment center was there for me when I was at a very dark place in my life. They were very responsive, knowledgeable and always available to help me. Without their help I don’t know what I would have done. Ambrosia was fantastic and all the staff was great.
Great Staff, lovely facility! The trauma track saved my daughters life. Thank you Ambrosia!
This is an amazing facility with super caring and amazing staff, especially the Wellness team giving me the guidance and support I really needed in my life.
