Opioid Treatment in Jupiter

Tucked away in northern Palm Beach County is Jupiter, a town that offers a quiet getaway from South Florida’s busier cities of West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. Visitors can swim in the Atlantic or lay out along the coastline, or they can check out several natural areas that showcase the best of South Florida’s wildlife. 

The picturesque town’s offerings, while perfect, haven’t shielded it from the realities that other areas in South Florida have experienced, and that’s opioid misuse and addiction. Heroin-related deaths have occurred among residents there, and there is a population with opioid use disorder (OUD). Per a 2017 report in The Palm Beach Post, 17 Jupiter residents fatally overdosed on heroin, with the oldest resident being age 50 while the youngest was 18 years old. That year, overdoses were up 163% compared with the first three months of 2016.

The global coronavirus pandemic brought more overdose deaths to the Palm Beach County area. Delray Beach, a city about 40 minutes south of Jupiter, saw its overdose death rate climb in 2020, according to a Boca Magazine article. According to data highlighted in the article, 63 people fatally overdosed on substances, an increase over 2019. The numbers all show the battle against opioid addiction continues throughout the county, state, and the nation.

The Palm Beach Institute Opioid Rehab in Jupiter

The Palm Beach Institute, located about a half-hour’s drive south of Jupiter, offers evidence-based treatment and other recovery services to help people end their dependence on addictive substances. During our 50-plus years of helping people achieve sobriety, we have helped many people who have opioid use disorder (OUD), offering them alternatives to a better life without dependence on these or other substances. 

If you want a new life without substance use, it can happen if you are willing to take the first steps toward achieving it. Our professionals are here to help guide you to your next steps so that you can stop abusing opioids and go after what you really want.


When you begin treatment, your first phase may involve medical detox. During this time, our addiction care professionals will review your needs regarding your physical and mental health and well-being to determine how you will recover from substance use during medical detox. Medical detox is widely regarded as the first phase of treatment in the continuum of care. Its purpose is to provide medical support while patients are stabilized as they withdraw from the substances of use.

Detox is considered the highest, most intensive level of substance abuse care. It ensures that patients are kept safe as the addictive substances they have been using exit the body. This is important because improperly withdrawing from substances can cause harrowing symptoms that have led many people back to using the drug they wanted to stop. It is difficult to get through withdrawal if constant cravings are present, a common pitfall of stopping drug or alcohol use abruptly outside of professional help.

Relapse also puts people at risk of overdosing should they decide to use the substance again. This decision can be fatal. During the detox period at The Palm Beach Institute, which lasts several days, our medical professionals monitor patients around the clock to make sure they are as comfortable as possible and that they get the care they need should any medical emergencies arise.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Many people who attend addiction treatment work on managing their opioid use disorder with medication-assisted treatment (MAT). This treatment approach is designed to help people whose previous attempts to end their opioid use ended in relapse. Some patients have found some success with it. MAT combines FDA-approved medication use with behavioral therapies and counseling to treat chronic opioid misuse. MAT is credited with saving lives and keeping people distraction-free as they work toward sobriety. The approach has helped longtime heroin users and people who have misused or abused prescription opioid medications. 


At The Palm Beach Institute, we offer our patients inpatient and residential care. This setting is for long-term recovery care for patients with moderate-to-severe substance use disorders who need an extended time to address their addiction. Residential care requires patients to live on-site at our facility for 30 days (a month) or longer. During that time, the focus will be intensive addiction care that makes sobriety a reality to work toward. 

Patients will receive intensive therapy and care to work on recovering from opioid use disorder. Our facility offers a private and comfortable home away from home for our patients. It is our hope and aim that a relaxing but focused environment makes it easier to focus on recovery full time as they work out matters that are critical to their entire being.

In a residential setting, our licensed medical and clinical professionals are available around the clock to tend to patients who need care, including those who have medication needs. Our patients also take part in various therapies, activities, courses, and more.

Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

After spending time in residential care, patients will exit from this setting but still need another setting in which to continue their treatment. Partial hospitalization, also called PHP or partial day services, may be the next phase of their treatment. PHP is often seen as the bridge between inpatient/residential and outpatient services. 

Patients in this stage of addiction treatment no longer need the intensive level of care provided in a residential setting, but they still need a loosely structured environment where they can live on their own, take their own medication, and attend a set number of hours of therapy every week. They could live at home or in alternative housing while they attend a day program at a stand-alone facility, including a hospital.

We provide PHP patients with intensive therapies for any co-occurring or mental health disorders they have in addition to therapy for substance use disorders. Therapies also address strategies for relapse prevention. We offer various therapies tailored to each patient’s needs. In general, we offer sessions where we employ cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). 

Both allow individuals to assess their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and how each of these affects how we see ourselves and others. Patients are encouraged to practice ways to improve all of them so they can reach their desired sobriety goals and life goals overall. Patients can receive PHP therapy sessions for  20 hours a week for a month or more, depending on a patient’s treatment program. 

Intensive Outpatient/Outpatient 

At The Palm Beach Institute, patients can also enroll in intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) and outpatient treatment (OP). These treatment settings are for individuals who can live on their own and commute to our facility for treatment. No on-site stay is required and people receiving either service are responsible for keeping their home environment free of anything that could deter their recovery program.

IOP patients must receive nine hours or more a week to address their addiction, while OP patients receive fewer than nine hours. Both types of outpatient programs offer therapies and services.

Outpatient programs are generally more affordable than others in a recovery program because participants can live at home or somewhere else away from the facility. They can also schedule their treatment as it fits with other responsibilities they have. IOP and OP settings are generally designed for people who have already received higher levels of care. Some people return to outpatient therapy for support if they feel vulnerable to having a relapse. Outpatient therapy sessions focus on relapse prevention and other skills that promote sobriety.


Once treatment has ended, individuals receiving care will have to return to the real world and put everything they learned in treatment to the test. However, we do not send them out there on their own with no support. At PBI, we understand how challenging it can be for people who are new to recovery.

Our aftercare program provides helpful resources and tools our program graduates will need to navigate life on the outside. Our Alumni Program connects our graduates to a supportive, compassionate community that really understands what people in addiction recovery face. Our doors are always open for people who need our care and support.

Opioid Treatment Rehab in Jupiter FAQ

If you are interested in receiving opioid treatment near Jupiter, Florida, look no further than The Palm Beach Institute. We can help you and answer your questions. Here are some frequently asked questions we get about addiction treatment. Please reach out to us with any additional questions you have or if you have questions about the information that appears below.

How Long Is Rehab?

Your rehab timeline depends on your unique needs and what you will focus on during your time in treatment. Everyone has different needs, so their time in rehabilitation will vary. Per the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), research says 90 days (three months) is ideal. It is believed that a longer time spent in addiction treatment can increase someone’s chances of recovering from substance abuse. We understand that living with an addiction will require a lifelong effort to remain in sobriety. We are here for our patients to help them with whatever they need.

 Does The Palm Beach Institute Provide Transportation?

Transportation is often a barrier to treatment, but we aim to change that. We do everything possible to get our clients to our facility so they can start treatment right away. If you are flying into Palm Beach International Airport or other airports in our area, we can pick you up once you arrive. We can also take you back for a return trip to the airport. Patients are responsible for their own travel arrangements. You are also responsible for your transportation to and from our facility.

How Much Does Opioid Treatment Cost?

Because everyone’s treatment needs differ, it’s difficult to say what it costs to receive opioid treatment. When planning your program, consider the costs by thinking about what your treatment program would look like. 

Take into consideration:

  • Your physical and mental health
  • The facility where you will receive rehabilitation services
  • The levels of care you receive (therapies)
  • Other care-related sources, such as medications, transportation, meals, incidentals

While opioid use disorder treatment costs, we believe bypassing treatment is a greater cost that is not worth it. We encourage everyone to get help for a substance use disorder as soon as possible. Our facility can work with you on getting your treatment bills paid.

Do I Have to Travel?

Yes, you will have to travel to our facility to receive treatment for a substance use disorder. A member of our team can speak with you about your travel concerns during an intake call. 

What Insurance Carriers Does The Palm Beach Institute Take?

We work with most insurance providers and accept their coverage plans. You can check with your insurance provider for details concerning your plan, but in general, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance providers to cover treatment services for substance use disorders and mental health disorders. Our verification team can review your insurance coverage and verify the benefits you can use to cover your treatment here at PBI. 

You may be responsible for finding other payment arrangements for the services you’ll need that might not be provided by your plan. We advise that you call your insurance provider to ask about copays you may have to cover. We can help you figure out what is provided so that you can start opioid rehab treatment as soon as possible.
