Psychology Internship Program


The Addiction Recovery Center is recognized as a leading Addiction Treatment provider, offering medical detoxification and rehabilitation for those afflicted by the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction. Patients at The Addiction Recovery Center receive an unprecedented level of care from highly skilled professionals who know how to help those suffering from addiction find long-term recovery.

The Addiction Recovery Center was incorporated in February of 1998 by a small group of addiction professionals and investors in order to meet a chronic and desperate need for addiction treatment services. The Addiction Recovery Center’s founders had a vision of creating the best addiction treatment and rehabilitation possible in a way that is affordable to the greatest number of people.

The Addiction Recovery Center Predoctoral Internship Program offers a comprehensive training experience in Chemical Dependency and Dual Diagnosis with an adult population. The training program is designed to prepare doctoral candidates through clinical experiences, instruction, and supervision for transition from student to professional within the field of psychology. Interns will work closely within multidisciplinary teams and learn to manage the numerous and complex issues surrounding the mental health treatment needs of those suffering from drug and/or alcohol addictions.

The internship program will include a primary placement at the Watershed’s Boynton Beach facility. Our Boynton Beach facility is a 120-bed detoxification and rehabilitation treatment program for male and female adults suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction. The facility houses 40 females and 80 males. In addition, interns may spend a portion of their internship at The Addiction Recovery Center’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP).

The Addiction Recovery Center internship’s principal goal is to provide doctoral candidates in psychology a well-rounded experience, primarily within the domain of chemical dependency. This 2,000 hour program consists of training and supervised experience over a span of twelve months. Throughout the internship year, Interns will be involved in a variety of clinical services including individual and family therapy, group therapy, assessment, and crisis intervention in order to provide exposure to a broad range of clinical experiences and modalities.
