What to Expect from Residential Alcohol Rehab
At Beach House, we understand the challenges unique to recovery from an alcohol use disorder. That is why we have designed our 35-day Inpatient Alcohol Rehab program for anyone who knows they need professional help for managing alcohol abuse triggers, addressing the root causes of their drinking and wants to stay successfully sober over a lifetime.
Following a medically supervised detox, clients live on campus in our new, state-of-the-art facility, which is located near miles of quiet beach preserve in the charming coastal town of Juno Beach, Florida. Within a warm, supportive and family-like environment, clients immerse themselves in an intensive daily routine, seven days a week, that includes group and individual therapies for alcohol.
Guided by caring and experienced medical and clinical professionals, clients learn new life skills and therapeutic coping tools, develop systems of support, such as 12-step recovery groups, and discover the ingredients of a healthy recovery lifestyle — all as part of the Beach House pledge: people, purpose and passion.

“The therapists and group facilitators did an amazing job in keeping me engaged while educating me on my disease and helping me process its emotional and behavioral components. The medical staff, especially nursing, made sure all of my medical needs were met on a daily basis.” “– Michelle
Inpatient Alcohol Rehab at Beach House – What Sets It Apart
Inpatient alcohol rehab at Beach House is characterized by a number of unique features that help to explain why our treatment outcomes consistently outperform the industry average.
We place a strong emphasis on “therapeutic alliance” (the degree of connection and rapport between a client and their therapist) and strive to provide this to every client who comes through our doors. Research suggests that a strong therapeutic alliance may be the single biggest predictor of success in recovery. For alcoholics in particular, a strong therapeutic alliance is even more critical to recovery.

Post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS) — a phenomenon that 75 percent of recovering drinkers experience to some degree — is another reason we strongly recommend at least 35 days of inpatient alcohol rehab. Symptoms of PAWS can be serious and can include:
- Cravings for alcohol
- Cognitive difficulties
- Irritability and hostility
- Feelings of anxiety or panic
- Depressed mood
- Relationship issues
- Obsessive-compulsive behaviors
- Low motivation, apathy or pessimism
- Sleep problems
- Heightened sensitivity to stress
In the absence of medical and clinical supervision within a safe and sober living environment, one or more of the above symptoms can trigger an alcohol relapse.
There is also the reality that most alcohol-dependent clients need medical supervision as they taper off one or more medications, such as naltrexone, which may have been administered during detox in order to relieve cravings. Medical supervision also ensures a safe, comfortable and complete taper off alcohol.

Finally, many clients with alcohol use disorder (AUD) have a co-occurring mental condition or “dual diagnosis” that typically requires a minimum of 30 days of post-detox medical supervision to be effectively diagnosed and treated.

The first 28 days of recovery are a time when the client is experiencing acute withdrawal, followed by post-acute withdrawal symptoms. This is also the time when relationships are being established and re-established with their primary therapist and close loved ones. It is after the initial detox period that the underlying issues can be addressed that may have led to or worsened substance abuse and held the client back from achieving their recovery goals.– Medical Director Dr. Meera Joseph, MD
How to Know If You or a Loved One Needs Inpatient Treatment for Alcohol
Anyone with a diagnosable AUD can benefit from attending inpatient rehab programs. Here are some common signs to look for that may indicate the presence of an AUD that requires treatment:
- A repeated pattern of drinking despite negative consequences
- Drinking more and more in order to cope with stress or simply to function on a daily basis
- Physical dependence on alcohol, marked by cravings and symptoms of withdrawal in the absence of alcohol
- Engaging in risky behaviors such as driving under the influence
- Alcohol-related problems at work or school and/or in personal relationships
- Alcohol-related troubles with the law
- Unsuccessful past attempts to quit drinking
How Much Does Alcohol Inpatient Rehab Cost?
One concern among many clients and families is how to afford the cost of an alcohol inpatient rehab program. The good news is that high-quality alcohol treatment doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, thanks to federal law that now requires insurance providers to offer coverage for alcohol rehab. Beach House accepts all major insurance carriers. We also offer flexible financing options to help clients afford inpatient alcohol treatment.
