Who is Rally Point Palm Beach Rehab?
Rally Point Palm Beach Rehab (www.rallypointpb.com) is a gender specific (male-only), 15 bed inpatient and residential living program with 3 treatment locations nestled in the heart of West Palm Beach, Florida.
Rally Point Palm Beach is a current member of NAATP, Joint Commission Accredited, and recently certified by Legit Script. They’ve built a reputation in their local recovery community for their effective role in helping veterans and active military members and families get access to affordable addiction recovery, PTSD treatment. Providing a unique route to ease them back into normal life activities.
The first step in defining our winning strategy required a prescient understanding of both the Rally Point business goals and the search competition landscape in their specific region.
From the start, Rally Point wanted to drive more admissions and conversions from their local region and surrounding areas, as well as increase overall traffic from search. This was not a simple task, as Florida’s hyper competitive landscape meant hundreds of other treatment centers and treatment aggregator sites were lobbying for the same 1st page Google rankings, most of them with a significant head start.
If we were going to help Rally Point achieve their business goals through SEO, we would have to concentrate our resources on a few critical objectives rather than spread ourselves thin competing against the goliaths.
Armed with actionable insights from our technical SEO audit, under-the-hood competitor research, and thorough onboarding Q&A discovery meetings, we set out to create a supercharged growth roadmap that would help us accomplish Rally Point’s business goals.

Start by laying the foundation…
Supercharged Growth Roadmap
Rally Point existing website was built on WordPress, a widely popular content management system (CMS) but used an outdated Child Theme with very heavy unnecessary code. This made the site very slow to load pages and nearly impossible to browse the program and service related content. Aside from poor user-experience (UX) performance, these issues also made it very difficult for search engines to crawl and index the website.
So our first step towards 1st page Google rankings and driving more admissions was to ensure we were building on a stable foundation, which meant switching to a more stable and faster hosting provider and optimizing for faster loading speed.
HERE’S EXACTLY WHAT WE DID
- – Transfer To New Hosting @ (WPengine) + SSL Certification
- – Enabled Caching & Make Proper Settings
- – Properly Combined CSS & JS Files (Minification)
- – Resize/Compress Images
- – Remove Unused Themes / Plugins
- – Technical SEO Audit & Improvements
- – Meta Titles
- – Footer Links
- – Minor Template Code Fixes & Misc.
With the improved website hosting and faster loading speed, prospective patients could better browse the program offerings and find answers to their questions on Rally Point. Also, search engines now can crawl and index the site easier, more frequently, and with more trust.

Chris Sheehan, Founder & CEO Rally Point PB Rehab
“We started working with 12 Steps Marketing by taking the 100 day challenge and we were blown away with the results. As a small treatment center, with a small budget, it is tough to compete with larger rehab brands. However, 12 Steps Marketing has us outranking even some of the biggest players in our industry for tons of keywords. The overall traffic to the Rally Point website has increased exponentially and we have definitely seen an increase in call volume as a result. I would highly recommend Vince and the team at 12 Steps Marketing to any treatment centers looking to grow their business online.”
