The Palm Beach Insitute – COVID-19, otherwise known as the coronavirus, is a stain on world history that we won’t soon forget. The virus has impacted businesses, families and will continue to cause ripple effects in our society for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, one of the less spoken of topics regarding the virus is its impact on our recovery community. Many of those who have spent years safeguarding their sobriety by attending 12-Step meetings have been left in the dark. We are in uncharted territory, and the worst part of it all is that there is no end in sight.
ARK Behavioral Health – Our goal is to use a whole-patient approach built on a foundation of integrity, transparency, and compassion. Each facility is centered around individualized patient care with an emphasis on long-term recovery to empower those with sense of purpose and joy.
Ark is also proudly accredited by the Joint Commission. The Joint Commission is considered “The Gold Standard” in accreditation for behavioral health facilities and organizations, respected in behavioral health and medical communities.
We strive to have our website be an educational resource by providing up-to-date, accurate, and evidence-based information related to substance abuse, mental health, and more. This is done in order to increase understanding and awareness of addiction without shame.
