Clinical Vision

Panama City’s Addiction Treatment Destination

At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, we believe each patient deserves an evidence-based addiction treatment plan individually tailored to meet their unique needs. Our staff performs thorough physical, mental and psychological evaluations to design customized treatment plans that are suited to fit the needs of each client for long-term addiction recovery success. Our top-tier clinical programming is one of the many reasons people from all over the southeast come to JourneyPure Emerald Coast for addiction treatment.

Evidence-Based Treatment Philosophy

Medical Model of Addiction

The medical model of addiction, or “disease model”, is a modern interpretation of the addiction cycle. It suggests that there are biological, psychological, or sociological reasons underlying the nature of addiction. Basing our treatments on the medical model helps us identify and resolve the internal issues that lead to an addiction.

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment

Patients suffering from addiction commonly also experience co-occurring mental health disorders. Dual diagnosis is when an individual who is suffering from addiction also suffers from co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, or bipolar. JourneyPure Emerald Coast is a premier rehabilitation center that provides integrated, comprehensive care to patients experiencing co-occurring disorders.

Trauma-Informed Care

At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, we utilize trauma-informed care methods to unearth the hidden triggers behind addiction. We understand that the root of addiction is often grounded in some type of trauma, whether from an environment of emotional neglect or a specific past event.

Chronic Care

At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, our commitment to your recovery doesn’t end after treatment. We believe that continuing care and ongoing support are key components of successful, long-term recovery. Through recovery coaching, extensive alumni planning and our JourneyPure Coaching™ program, all patients receive ongoing care for a minimum of one year post-treatment at no additional cost.

Healthy Lifestyle

At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, we believe that a holistic or total wellness approach to addiction treatment is the key to long-term recovery. In addition to evidence-based clinical addiction treatment, we look at a patient’s diet, their exercise habits and their spiritual well-being.

Clinical Programming

As one of the addiction treatment facilities in the network of JourneyPure premier rehabilitation centers, JourneyPure Emerald Coast offers addiction and dual diagnosis treatment services that are evidence-based or validated by scientific research. Our clinical and medical staff stay up-to-date on the latest medical model treatment methods striving to always provide patients with the highest level of care available.

Evidence-based Treatment Modalities

The therapies we integrate into our group and individual sessions are supported by strong research for their use with individuals recovering from addiction. Some of these methods include:


Individual psychotherapy sessions have been shown by research to be effective in treating a wide range of mental illnesses. We utilize several of the most popular, scientifically backed forms of psychotherapy:

  • Motivational Enhancement Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Neurofeedback/Biofeedback Treatments
  • 12-Step
  • Group Therapy

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of therapeutic activities that go beyond traditional “talk therapy.” A key component of successful experiential therapy is that it bypasses the cognitive thinking patterns that psychotherapy addresses tapping into a different part of the brain. Some popular experiential therapies our patients participate in are:

  • Songwriting Workshops
  • Equine Therapy
  • Team-Building Activities
  • Wilderness and Adventure Therapy
  • Outdoor Challenges and Recreational Activities

Family Therapy

Incorporating Family Therapy when needed is a great way to heal underlying causes of the addictive behavior and prevent relapse post-treatment due to a more solidified support structure.

Alcohol Detox

Often times, alcohol addiction calls for medically-assisted detoxification. At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, we go to every length to ensure that detox is safe and as comfortable as possible. Our doctors and licensed addiction treatment psychiatrists monitor clients around-the-clock to ensure patient safety and relieve symptoms of withdrawal such as anxiety, irritability, insomnia and depression, by prescribing appropriate medications when necessary.

Substance Abuse Detox

As with alcohol detox, there are times when substance abuse addiction calls for medically-assisted detox service. We regularly help clients detoxify from multiple substances. When handled properly, this can lead to very successful outcomes. However, it is essential that this type of detoxification be done under the care of trained professionals. No detoxification should ever be done alone, as it can lead to unwanted side effects and potential medical emergencies.
