About Us

The Expectant Mothers Treatment Program

THE BEGINNING

The Beaches Treatment Center first opened its doors in 2013 with the idea of helping individuals with substance abuse. Over the last five years, they’ve provided services for the needs of a large population seeking sobriety in South Florida. In 2018, the Center decided to create a new program for a more marginalized population they discovered while working with substance users: pregnant women addicted to or abusing substances. This required a certain type of licensure, a lot of research about evidenced-based practices and specialized treatment approaches, but we are finally ready to open our doors for the first time!

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Expectant Mothers Treatment Program is a nonjudgemental association focused on the well-being of birth mothers and their babies. We offer a customizable, multi-professional programs designed for each individual and intended to eliminate the gap in services for pregnant women battling addiction. We offer a continuum of care and ongoing support for individuals attempting to achieve sobriety and become better mothers.

OUR OBJECTIVES

We want to empower women through education, implement proper strategies according to each individual’s situation and current needs, and provide consistent care and support for pregnant women battling addiction and re-learning to become self-sufficient, productive members of our society. Most importantly, our goals are to have healthy moms and healthy babies.

OUR PROGRAM

We have intake coordinators who are available 24/7 to take your call at any time, then put you in contact with an admissions specialist who works closely with our clinical director to tailor your program needs. We believe every woman and her pregnancy are different and they deserve individualized plans. We currently have over 20 services we offer clients, including Dual Diagnosis treatment, parenting classes, life skills, and career counseling. Every woman will be encouraged to attend group and individual counseling, as well as receive regular treatment from an Ob-Gyn and addictionologist, both high risk pregnancy specialists. Our housing is in an area where the decision to stay sober is reinforced and does not include the temptations redolent in other neighborhoods.

CARE OPTIONS

We offer 4 different care programs: the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), the Outpatient Program (OP), and the Dual Diagnosis Program.

PHP is the most comprehensive and intensive, and focuses on patient-centered care. It provides on-site sober housing arrangements staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and includes Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Clients attend 6 hours of intensive therapy during the day and/or evening. We have a wide variety of groups available to fit clients’ schedules, so part-time work or schooling is possible. Clients will work with doctors, counselors, psychiatrists and other specialists.

IOP is an intermediary program that provides part-time, treatment-based services, but clients reside outside the facility in sober living facilities or at home. They do not spend their free time or nights at the facility. Participants are able to go to full or part-time work or school and participate in whatever drug-free activities they choose. When a participant is not engaged in IOP group sessions or individual therapy, they live and work in their normal environments or in an independent sober-living facility. IOP includes the same types of treatment as PHP. Clients attend 9 hours of group counseling sessions, 12 step meetings, individual counseling sessions, addiction education classes, and relapse prevention training.

OP will be beneficial for an individual recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. It offers continued support as they progress on the road to recovery. OP is designed to offer a continuum of care and continued support for individuals who have achieved sobriety as they are integrating back into traditional daily life. We offer day, evening, and weekend options for services and work with the client to find the best fit for each individual.

Dual Diagnosis is an integrated , coordinated approach to substance abuse and mental health interventions for individuals with co-occuring disorders. Our team of clinicians work together under one roof to provide client-centered services ranging from holistic therapy to social skills training with a consistent approach. By the end of the treatment program, individuals will be empowered to manage both illnesses in order to pursue meaningful goals and dreams.
