The Watershed — Palm Beaches

4905 Park Ridge Blvd, Boynton Beach, Florida, 33426
With a mission focused on freeing clients from their addictions, the Watershed approach is that drug and alcohol addiction and co-occurring psychiatric disorders are treatable illnesses. Treatment—using 12-step programs and individual, group and family therapy—is specialized for women, men, young professionals and families. Peer support and relationships are also emphasized as extremely important in establishing the foundation for recovery.

Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification

    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • 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.

My stay at the Watershed was a great experience. I was there 15 years ago and can’t thank them enough! They are not there to keep you sober people, they are there to give you the tools you need to do that. How you use those tools will determine your sobriety. Thankful Cynthia

Thirty four hours after I arrived at the watershed, I had a heart attack and was rushed by ambulance to have a stent placed in my heart. I was at death\'s door when I finally gave up my addictions. I\'m now in my sixth year of sobriety. I showed up there with forty years of addiction, out of control diabetes, mental and psychological issues. The staff there brought me back from the gates of hell itself. That\'s a fact, not an exaggeration. I pray daily for the people who helped me, and for those who are there helping others. My world is so much more than I imagined it would be. I\'m traveling from California to Boyton Beach to hopefully see, and offer my heartfelt gratitude. God please bless these special people who are doing for messes like me what they cannot do for themselves. Watch over, and bless their families so they can devote their energy into helping others like me. In Jesus name, and with tears in my eyes, Amen.
