While it’s always disappointing when a good thing comes to an end, it’s especially hard when a program that helps people comes to an end as well. Mango Bay Retreat, a women’s drug rehab center, learned that its state funding would end at the end of June 2018. The retreat learned this from its managing body, the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network, which heard about the news first. The rehab center focuses on young women who are pregnant or have young children, but will accept any women who need to beat an addiction. The facility supplies treatment services (both physiological and emotional) as well as some prenatal care. No word yet on whether Mango Bay Retreat will be able to keep its doors open without state help.
A drug rehab center located in West Palm Beach that helps women with substance use disorders across the South Florida region is expecting to lose funding by the end of the week.
Members of the rehab center, Mango Bay Retreat, learned this week that the funds that they receive from the state will no longer be provided. The facility learned about the cuts after being notified by its managing unit, the Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network.
The addiction treatment center features certified addiction professionals and rehabilitation programs specialized in assisting women who are pregnant or have young children. But all women who want to overcome a substance use disorder are welcome.
The rehab center supports 12-step models that are implemented through traditional and intensive outpatient rehabilitation programs as well as a series of holistic treatment programs including acupuncture, life skills training sessions, parenting classes, yoga, massage and art therapy. Specialized services such as partial hospitalization are also offered by the center to the patients in need.
