Introduction and Basic Services

Located just a few minutes from the Palm Beach International Airport, Ambrosia West Palm Beach is a residential rehab center specializing in trauma treatment. It caters to adult clients of both genders. The facility is part of the Ambrosia Treatment Centers network, which operates four other facilities across the United States. The Ambrosia Treatment Centers were founded by RN Jerry Haffey in 2007 as a continuation of his years of work in the field of substance abuse treatment.

Facility and Meals

The facility is on the waterfront and consists of two large, canary yellow buildings separated by a courtyard. Apartment-style accommodations are luxurious, with large lounge spaces furnished with flat screen TVs and leather sofas. The total number of beds available is 36. Double bedrooms have large beds with fresh linens. The campus is well-landscaped with banyan and palm trees and is adjacent to pathways that lead right out onto the water. The backyard has a large pool with lounge chairs and a stone patio, as well as seating areas. There is an on-site workout facility with a number of fitness machines for getting or staying in shape during treatment.

Modern kitchen areas feature stainless steel fridges, stoves and microwaves, dark wooden cabinets and granite countertops. Clients are given gift cards to the local supermarket to go shopping for the week and then prepare their own meals, though snacks are served throughout the day.
