“After seeing the place in person, I knew this was the place where I wanted to get sober. My experience at Retreat was amazing. I’ve been to other rehabs and they weren’t nearly as nice. The facility was clean, as they had cleaning staff in every day. The food was excellent because they have their own professional kitchen staff. The entire team at Retreat was very supportive and gave me hope for being here.”

Success Stories

“My name’s Samantha and I’m happily married. I’m the proud, responsible mother of a two young children, a little girl and little boy. I’m a full-time student, a sister, a cousin, an aunt, a friend, and a daughter myself. And I’d be none of those things unless I was also a sober, recovering drug addict and alcoholic. For eight years I was an IV heroin user on the brink of death. My life was a mess. My relationships were broken. My family was baffled, and my soul was dead. On December 22nd, 2011, I showed up at Retreat looking for nothing but a break from my own despair. I had no idea what I was about to be given. Retreat took care of me. They listened to me. They taught me. They encouraged me and they loved me. Without the compassionate care I received as a patient there, I wouldn’t be the person I am today. So, thank you Retreat – for my life, my family and my future.”Samantha
“After using drugs and alcohol for over 10 years, I did not believe that rehab would be an option for me; I didn’t even know how to get into one! I walked through the doors of Retreat on January 10, 2012, weighing only 78 pounds and feeling lost, afraid, beat down and hopeless. I could no longer look in the mirror at this point, and wasn’t even sure if I wanted to live any longer. I knew I wanted to get clean, I just didn’t know what to expect. From the minute I walked through the door, I felt the love and compassion that Retreat offers. I immediately became involved in the groups that Retreat offers and I was able to truly work on myself. I was slowly beginning to fill the holes within me that I always filled with drugs and alcohol. I was able to smile, laugh, and feel a freedom that I don’t believe I ever felt before.”Katie

“My husband has been at the Retreat Behavioral in West Palm Beach since Wednesday. I want to let you know that I have had the pleasure to work with Patti since his arrival. Patti has guided me through this process, is always available and is truly sincere. My husband was nearly on his death bed when he arrived at the Retreat. He did not want to stay and was adamant that he was leaving after detox. Patti suggested the family write impact letters to him, and have them read with his therapist. The letters were written by our children and extended family members. After reading the letters with two therapists, my husband decided to complete his 14 day treatment. This was a miracle because he was not going to stay. Patti has also given the name of books to read so that I may work towards recovery as a codependent. She consistently communicates with his therapist. I am extremely impressed with the teamwork and communication. I felt as though I needed to express my gratitude and appreciation for the work Patti is doing for our family. Knowing that I can pick up the phone and she answers to help us, is truly comforting. I trust in following her lead.”


“Retreat at Palm Beach practices what they preach – client/patient centric care. The clarity of communications staff member words were backed-up / followed-up with action to help my 32-y/o pregnant daughter get the critical medical and clinical “addiction” care needed for mother and child. My parental concerns for daughter’s health with child were integral to Retreat at PB’s intervention, detox, and subsequent care planning. Thank God, I am forever grateful. 5-Stars for the Retreat @ PB care team.”

“Retreat at Lancaster Pennsylvania was amazing and it saved my life. I cannot say enough about it they go above and beyond for their patients.”

Ashlyn S.

“Best treatment experience hands down. Entire staff A+! Dr. Troncole is a life saver. As a previous patient of Retreat, I cant say they are the first place I would recommend to anyone looking for help. The atmosphere is great and it feels very individualized. Nice facility and you will meet a lot of great people there who will spend as much time needed to help you any way they can.”
