My name is Chris Kaufteil. Let me just start out by saying that I was the hopeless variety alcoholic. I am from South Florida and have been through almost every in network facility from Dade to Palm Beach county. I am forever grateful the family owned and operated Beachcomber in Delray Beach along with their Intensive Outpatient program. I choose to come to the Beachcomber in March of 2015. Being my 11th or 12th treatment center in the past 5 years I thought It was going to be another "turn and burn" experience like many other South Florida facilities. Most facilities that I have been through aside from this place was like a factory and that's an understatement. The Beachcomber is unique in a sense that the staff takes a personal interest in your emotional well being along with your physical safety. I am the addict who never had more than 60 days outside of a residential facility. I now have 4 months and its all attributed to God and the 12 steps which were both brought to light by the care and concern of the Beachcomber ambience and staffing. I have never felt so secure and safe to share some of my deeply rooted issues than when I was a client at the Beachcomber. This 16 bed program allowed me the opportunity to work on issues never exposed in previous attempts at other treatment centers. I am now in aftercare though their Intensive Outpatient program and have been for the past 9-10 weeks also participating in the Relapse Prevention workshop. God Bless!Yours Truly,Christopher Kaufteil 118 days clean and sober
This place is great. My parents and I found this place for my brother about 4 years ago. He was heavy into drugs and I thought I had lost him. He had changed so much, at times I hated him because he was not the boy i grew up with, he was something different, something darker-his moods were always drastically changing. After we got him to Beachcomber , everything changed. he was fully rehabilitated and was back to being the fun loving, wonderful, happy, intelligent and kind sister I knew and loved. She is now in school and working full time and has his own house and is thriving in all aspects of life. I thank God everyday for giving my family and I this place because they contributed to not only saving my brother's life, but every life that he would come in contact with in the future. Many Thanks.
