The Goldilocks Theory of Choosing the Right Drug Rehab
One way to ensure you choose the right drug rehab to suit your specific needs is using the Goldilocks Theory: is it too big, too small, or just right? Consider the following points.
This Rehab Facility Is Too Big
Anyone who has been through a traditional drug treatment facility knows that often, it is done in a hospital-like setting, with hundreds of patients at a time. It can feel very clinical and anonymous, and with a huge facility, it can be hard to get to know other guests or staff personally. The number one complaint we hear about such large treatment facilities is that they feel like they are “just another number” and that no one there is actually invested in them as a person. Large treatment hospitals can feel cold and institutional, and clients have confessed to leaving such facilities no better than they came into them. In such a crucial time in a person’s life, feeling compassion and support from those around them can be pivotal to their recovery.
This Rehab Facility Is Too Small
As the opposite to these institutions, a few treatment facilities have been popping up that are run entirely from a private home, and they tout their cozy environment as being more therapeutic because they are “home-like.” We’ve had a few guests who have been to such rehabs before coming to us. They say some of the most significant issues are that there’s nowhere to get away from the other guests, if you don’t get along with someone, you are literally stuck with them, and it affects treatment when an individual is forced to share such a small space with someone they dislike. While the answer to large, hospital-like environments may seem like a private home, often it can feel cramped, claustrophobic, and be completely detrimental to a person’s recovery.
This Rehab Facility Is Just Right
So what’s the answer? We at Gulf Breeze Recovery have discovered that the answer to the question lies somewhere in the middle. Our facility holds 26 residential treatment beds and five medical detox beds in a separate wing, which allows guests to detox comfortably, and, most of all, privately in the comfort of their own room with a nurse just steps away.
Gulf Breeze Recovery is large enough to provide professional medical and counseling services but small enough to be friendly and caring to all of our guests.
The Amenities at Gulf Breeze Recovery’s Drug Rehab Facility
If you enjoy socializing among other guests and getting to know others, there are plenty of opportunities to do that along our private beach area overlooking the water, playing a game of ping pong, pool, or even corn-hole out on our lawn during free time.
If you prefer some quiet time and space to reflect, there are plenty of cozy areas for reading, reflection, and personal conversations away from the general group. Our facility was specifically designed for our guest’s comfort and safety; it was never a house that guests had to cram into.
Our kitchen is stocked with commercial-grade equipment and two full-time chefs who continually earn rave reviews for their delicious, healthy, nutritious meals. Nutrition is a key part of recovery, after all.
Our medical staff has all of the equipment on-hand to provide a full medical detox right on site, including a Class II in-stock floor pharmacy, so we have all of the necessary attributes that an institution or hospital would have.
We have enough staff to keep our facility neat, clean, and comfortable, but not so many that they don’t personally know your name and care about you as an individual. As one of our recent guests described, “I feel like Goldilocks when she finally found the one that was just right!”
