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.
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.
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 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.
The Expectant Mothers Program accepts insurance plans, out of network coverage. Currently, we do not accept Medicaid. We do offer self-pay, sliding scale arrangements, or potential scholarships for clients.
