Why a Holistic Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program?

Here's why you should consider a holistic approach to drug and alcohol treatment.

Substance abuse addiction is a multi-faceted issue. It is physical, mental, and habitual. Every area of a person’s life is impacted, and during treatment all those areas must be addressed to promote long-term and permanent recovery.

What is recovery?

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) defines recovery “as a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.” Recovery by that definition can seem almost impossible for someone who is active in their addiction with much of their life in turmoil. We know, however, that people can recover and THRIVE®.

At Gulf Breeze Recovery we have a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program to help individuals reach the SAMHSA definition of recovery, using an intensive holistic drug and alcohol treatment approach to addiction.  We recognize that recovery is much more than helping an individual stop using their substance or substances of choice.

We make detox safe and comfortable.

A first step is to help those guests who require it, complete a medically supervised and safe detoxification process.  Our medical staff strives to make that process as comfortable as possible and offers our guests 24-hour a day medical care.

Next, we start healing physically and mentally.

Following detoxification, our guests receive spa treatments and exercise for overall health benefits, and daily group classes with a curriculum designed to help guests understand addiction, their personal recovery, and how to best avoid relapse.  Each guest has regularly scheduled one-on-one counseling sessions with their mental health therapist to address personal issues that could be contributing to their drug or alcohol addiction. 

One size does not fit all!

Other facets of our holistic drug treatment program include quiet time for reading and reflection, neurofeedback to help with recovery and to lower the likelihood of relapse, meditation to promote a quieter and more peaceful mind, art therapy as a way to explore a multitude of different ways for relaxation, fun and self-expression.  In addition, free time is available for guests to socialize, or have time alone as they learn how to be substance free and content.

And, great food for newly restored appetites!

Last, but not least, good nutrition is an important part of a holistic drug and alcohol recovery program. Meals and snacks are prepared in-house by our chefs offering healthy and flavorful foods.

Everything else is tailored to the individual!

Every part of the drug treatment program at Gulf Breeze Recovery was designed with the goal for each guest to have the best possible opportunity to learn how to “improve their health and wellness, live self-directed lives, and strive to reach their full potential.”  Our holistic drug and alcohol treatment program is a plan to help our guests THRIVE®!
