Our Treatment Approach

The Futures philosophy, grounded in the research of neuroscience, is that people change, and that recovery from both addictions and co-occurring disorders is possible. Every day people are stopping their addictions, stepping away from mental illness, and when they do this, it is because they have changed their brain. By understanding the neurophysiology underlying these disorders, and understanding the neurophysiology of change, Futures has created unique and intensive treatment programs that facilitate recovery in the most rapid and deepest manner. This integrated, multidisciplinary approach includes a combination of intensive psychotherapy addressing deep-seeded emotional and motivational issues, as well as teaching practical coping skills in the areas of relapse prevention, and emotional regulation, and provides ongoing support with a life satisfaction plan.

Additionally, Futures incorporates a compassionate and supportive approach to both co-occurring disorders and addiction treatment. Futures takes pride in its collaborative and empowering approach in setting reasonable goals and building skills the client can utilize beyond their stay at Futures.

How Futures Stands Apart from Other Treatment Programs

  • Comprehensive DBT (Emotional Regulation) Program

    The foundation of our treatment provides a comprehensive introduction to DBT to include all four modules: core mindfulness; distress tolerance; emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. Because emotional dysregulation is the most common factor in relapsing back to old addiction or co-occurring disorder patterns, Futures has incorporated the most thorough, evidence-based treatment available to support emotional regulation. The foundation of this treatment includes a comprehensive introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program within a 30 day format that includes all four skills modules including core mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Moreover, the client will be exposed to additional individual treatments supporting emotional regulation such as hypnotherapy, stress management, meditation, and other activities supporting core mindfulness.

  • A Thorough Motivation-Based Relapse Prevention Plan

    Each client develops an individualized detailed relapse prevention plan containing the cognitive, emotional and motivational coping techniques to support long term recovery.
    Relapse occurs in the context of a lack of external support, and a “momentary” lapse of motivation for recovery. By understanding the factors involved in this “moment of relapse”, Futures assists the client in developing a highly detailed individualized written plan containing the cognitive, emotional, and motivational coping techniques to support long-term recovery. This plan is created in individual sessions with the client’s chemical dependency or co-occurring disorder counselor to ensure that it is thorough and highly specific to that individual client. This plan is shared with the family towards the end of treatment to help the client incorporate this relapse prevention plan into their daily life.

  • Family Support System Program

    Our families and significant loved ones play a major role in our lives and recovery. At Futures each client receives a three-day family intensive. Because healthy re-connection with the client’s family and support system is vital for long-term recovery, Futures offers individual psychotherapy focusing on family and relationship issues, in addition to a three-day “Family Intensive” that incorporates the family/support system into treatment program that occurs toward the end of the client’s treatment.

  • Wellness Program

    A healthy mind and body enhances your stay at Futures. We provide emotional regulating and stress relieving activities and services such as; state of the art fitness center and personal trainers, yoga, mediation, massage, cooking classes, acupuncture and full spa amenities.

    The Future’s philosophy includes an overall Wellness approach, with group and individual treatment interventions focused on healthy mind and body, including a fitness center with a Physical Trainer at least two times per week, nutritional goals with a Dietician, healthy gourmet cooking classes, psycho-educational groups, Spa amenities offering massage, yoga, acupuncture, and other adjunct treatments.

  • Separate Addictions and Co-Occurring Disorder Programs

    Our program offers two separate programs: primary substance abuse and a blended track for those struggling with co-occurring disorders.

    In order to be most effective, Futures contains two separate programs: 1) Treating individuals with addictions only; 2) Treating individuals that may be suffering from both an mental illness and an addiction problem. In each case, Futures is also set up as a Dual-Diagnosis program, fully capable of treating underling emotional and mental health issues that may be co-occurring with the clients addiction issues.

At Futures of Palm Beach, our team includes Ph.D.-level Mental Health Treatment and Medical Professionals.
