Gulf Breeze Recovery recognizes the important role that hope plays in long term recovery. All these components are included not only in their treatment program, but also in the “Blueprint for Success” which outlines the guest’s “life plan” and aftercare.
Many of those who have experienced less difficulty with recovery talk about an “aha” moment where they realized at a very deep level that they wanted to change their lifestyle and regain their health. They often echo a well-known quote, saying, “they got sick and tired of being sick and tired.” In other words, they were ready for recovery and willing to make the changes necessary to achieve their sobriety.
I attended Gulf Breeze Recovery in 2016 after over a decade of failed attempts to get clean at 12-step drug treatment centers. I was an IV drug user, and I thought that if anyone truly understood how powerful my cravings were, then surely they would see why it was impossible for me to stay sober. That’s why one of the most valuable insights I gained during my time in Gulf Breeze was my relationship to cravings.
Gulf Breeze Recovery is a holistic, non-12-step treatment program that takes pride in offering top notch care to everyone who participates in our program. Gulf Breeze Recovery has an ongoing policy of striving to constantly improve our services, using feedback from our guests as a guideline.
Holistic rehabilitation investigates the underlying sources of addictive behavior and seeks to respond to addiction in ways that are successful for the long term. This makes holistic rehabilitation particularly effective at helping with instances of repeated or chronic relapse.
Often addiction is a symptom of a deeper problem. To offer the best treatment option for individuals, their specific issues must be understood and addressed. A cookie cutter approach to addiction treatment just doesn’t work.
PAWS can feel like a rollercoaster of emotions and symptoms. Being aware that these symptoms may occur can help to be prepared for them. Knowing that they usually don’t last for more than a day or two makes them bearable and less frightening.
People who have gone to drug and alcohol treatment programs and then relapsed, sometimes more than once, feel hopeless and believe that their life will continue the cycle of short-term sobriety, relapse, treatment, and repeat.
Our amenities, along with our specially trained staff have one specific focus and that focus is how we can best help people recover from addiction. We do that by providing a safe, comfortable, nurturing environment and a curriculum targeting individual recovery.
To sum it up, “the body has a very powerful mechanism (self-regulation) that assists us with adapting to new situations and challenges. Even though it does not always choose the best solution to rise to the occasion, the brain has an incredible capacity to learn from experience.
