About Us

A Bit Of History

The Beachcomber was founded in Florida in 1976 to help individuals and families afflicted with the devastating illness of alcoholism and drug addiction. We combine the structure and discipline of an intense therapeutic program with the support and experience of a sober community. In our intimate environment, under 16 clients interact with six full-time therapists. Hope and fulfillment begin to replace emotions such as fear, anger, and loneliness in the individual, as well as the frustration and hidden suffering of family and loved ones.

The emphasis of treatment is on personal contact. There are approximately seven hours of therapy per day, seven days a week. This includes group therapy every day as well as seminars covering a wide range of subjects from the disease concept of alcoholism through marriage, sexual dysfunction, and interpersonal relations. There are two sessions per week for family members plus additional counseling, if needed. While family members’ participation is not mandatory, diligent efforts bring about a 99% participation of families in our program.

The Beachcomber is geared towards the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and Al-Anon, with meetings on the premises. An A.A. and N.A. contact is made for each client before leaving as well as a schedule of A.A. and N.A. meetings. Change is what we are really about, and as the number of men and women who begin their sobriety at the Beachcomber grows into the thousands, we are more sure than ever that we are accomplishing what we set out to do. We invite you to talk with us and to visit our beautiful family-like setting just 305 paces from the uncrowded private beach on the Atlantic Dunes in Delray Beach, Florida.

“I went to the Beachcomber feeling empty. I wasn’t really wanting to but everyone told me I needed to. I was told in June 2012 that the counselors were in recovery, and they believed in God. When I heard GOD I went. I felt like it was a calling. At first when I got there I felt very uncomfortable and in seconds the lady at the desk made me laugh and suddenly I didn’t feel so bad. My favorite counselor was Trey. He was very strong and firm and a BIG Believer in God. The others were extremely nice also. Since feeling so at ease I felt completely comfortable and I opened up and shared. Not being judged but rather supported I felt free. So I thank the staff you will always have a place in my heart.”

“Beachcomber is an excellent facility. It was the one and last place that my Son successfully sought treatment. The staff was firm but very caring. They always took my phone calls and I had weekly updates with their now Clinical Director Genna. She has kept in touch with all of to this day, and we celebrate my Son’s sober date together each year, as I truly believe she was most instrumental in his recovery. Addiction treatment is a difficult industry and I have the utmost respect for those who work in it. Beachcomber has been around for a very long time and that’s due to its immense success rate.”

-Cynthia Aragona

“A welcoming and warm environment in which all employees deeply care about the well being of those who walk through the doors. Director Jenna was professional, intelligent, and sought to provide the best for all patients. Would hands down recommend to anyone seeking a treatment facility.”

-Darcey Mulligan

“I was in desperate need for my loved one. She was so broken and without hope upon arrival. It took 2 minutes to change her feelings from hopelessness to hopeful and forward thinking and a sense of safety. They created an empathetic, loving, welcoming environment. The therapy is intense and professional according to her. I am so grateful to Beach Combers and it’s caring staff for helping her and putting her on a strong path of recovery. Thank you a million times overs. ”
