Palm Partners Guarantee
Alcohol and drug addiction is a serious illness that can impact your whole life. It is characterized by a compulsive need to drink and use drugs even in the face of severe consequences. An addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is very serious and life threatening. Often, an alcoholic or addict needs the help of a skilled rehab in order to recover. Different drug treatment centers have different rates of success. And while no drug treatment center can guarantee you will remain drug and alcohol free for life, some of the more successful drug treatment centers do offer a limited guarantee on their program.
The success rate of a drug treatment center really varies depending on the program. Private facilities with more one-on-one treatment tend to have higher success rates. More individual attention means that your treatment will be more centered on your specific needs. Sometimes people begin drinking because of past trauma. Others have a co-occurring mental disorder, like anxiety, and they self-medicate by using drugs and drinking. A drug treatment center that is equipped to give you personal attention generally has better treatment outcomes because you are able to focus on your specific issues.
The success rate of a drug treatment center also depends on the length of time you spend there. The longer you stay in treatment, the better your chances of long term sobriety. Some drug treatment centers will even guarantee that you have a successful recovery if you stay a certain amount of time and participate in aftercare treatment. If you relapse, they will allow you to come back to treatment free of charge.
Palm Partners in Delray Beach Florida offers this type of guarantee for their program. They are one of the only drug treatment centers in Florida to guarantee their program. They have observed such a high success rate in individuals who complete treatment, they are willing to offer free treatment if someone relapses. The terms of the Palm Partners guarantee are as follows:
- Provided the individual has been in a Residential Treatment Facility for a full 90 days of residential care, and then is compliant with the Recovery Coaching Program for a full year after that, if such an individual relapses they may return for treatment at the same facility for a thirty day relapse prevention program free of charge.
- A “relapse” means using alcohol, illicit drugs or non-prescribed medication. The “same facility” means the Palm Partners Treatment facility where the individual received initial care.
- Palm Partners retains the right to refuse a second Residential treatment to an individual who was discharged for disruptive behavior, harm to other clients, or noncompliance with our Residential Procedures the first time. This is in order to ensure the safety and recovery of all clients.
- Note that the above offer is exclusive of medication costs, and medical detoxification.

Drug Treatment Centers in Florida

There are many drug treatment centers in Florida. Palm Beach County, on Florida’s east coast, has been called the recovery capital of the country. Every year, thousands of northerners flock to drug treatment centers in Florida to get help with their alcohol and drug addiction problems.
Drug treatment centers in Florida usually employ what is known as the “Florida Model” of treatment. This is a step-down process that begins with a stay at a detox facility and ends with residence at a sober house. Each step is slightly less regimented than the one before. In this way, drug treatment centers in Florida gently phase you back into living in the real world.
The first step employed by drug treatment centers in Florida is the detox process. Withdrawal is the biggest barrier to treatment for many drug addicts and alcoholics. Withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and dangerous when done outside the care of a medical professional. Many relapse during this period because of the physical discomfort. A drug treatment center in Florida will direct you to either an in-house or outside detox facility. At the detox facility, you will be given medications to ensure a safe, comfortable detox process. The staff at a detox facility will monitor your vitals and keep an eye on your physical condition to ensure that the process is safe. During this step of drug treatment, you will likely be monitored around the clock for your own safety.
The second step utilized by drug treatment centers in Florida is the residential treatment facility. This phase of the process usually lasts between 30 days and 1 year. 90 days is usually the recommended length of stay at drug treatment centers in Florida. While at the residential drug treatment center, you will usually be housed with others attending the same drug treatment center. During the day, you will attend both individual and group therapy sessions. These therapy sessions will help you address the reasons that you drank or used in the first place. The sessions will also help you learn the tools you will need to live a happy, productive, and drug-free life.
After the residential treatment center, drug treatment centers in Florida will likely suggest that you go to live in a sober house. A sober house is a residence you live in with other people in recovery. These residences have a strict no-tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol and employ regular drug testing. Sober houses also have rules regarding curfew, guests, and lifestyle. Most require you to be working a 12-step program.
Drug treatment centers in Florida also offer outpatient programs after you leave the residential program. The outpatient program usually requires you to come to the drug treatment center 2 to 5 days a week to attend therapy. Outpatient programs are utilized by drug treatment centers in Florida to keep you accountable and to help you deal with any problems that may come up once you are living on your own.
