Our program is ideal for people who suffer from Alcohol problems.
Gulf Breeze Recovery is a world-class, non-12 step, holistic alcohol abuse treatment facility providing compassionate, comprehensive, cutting-edge therapies for addiction recovery and personal transformation. In 2020, seventy-nine percent of our guests were mature individuals who had alcohol-related issues. If alcohol abuse is your problem we are the solution. Call: 833.551.2304
Our program is unique, so we help many who have been to multiple rehabs.
Most treatment centers offer the same program, those who have unsuccessfully attended multiple facilities have usually, in fact, only attended one program…only one. Our program is different, positive, health-focused and goes to the heart of each individual’s alcohol problem. But let’s let Angela speak for us instead.
Detoxification at Gulf Breeze Recovery
According to our medical director, Dr. David Espenscheid, “Our protocols have gotten the approval of many of our former guests, because they were surprised by how comfortable and natural we made the process. I also offer hope as a man sober for over 20 years…”
What is detox like for someone recovering from Alcohol Abuse? Angela shares her experience with our private detoxification wing.
Like many of our guests, Angela’s first impression of our facility came from her initial intake into our detoxification wing. Rightfully apprehensive and nervous, Angela remembers being immediately made comfortable, loved and cared for. Our Doctor’s and Nurses are not only talented, but their genuine kindness and concern is usually the first time people have felt a non-judgemental caring connection in a long time. Watch Angela’s video for her experience with our medically licensed alcohol detoxification process.
Alcohol related deaths among those aged 45 to 64, has risen nearly 25%.
From our blog article, “Unseen Crisis: The Dangers of Untreated Alcoholism Among Southern Women,” in recent years, the opioid epidemic has grown so much that it has overshadowed the more lethal scourge of alcoholism, which claims its victims through a wider range of methods. From grievous health issues like liver cirrhosis, cancer, pancreatitis and alcohol poisoning to alcohol-related suicide, drinking and driving incidents, etc., alcohol has a thousand ways to hurt or kill. Sadly, it’s doing it more than ever. A recent University of Washington ten year study on the topic showed a 35% increase in deaths due to alcohol. One expected find was that deaths in women spiked by an alarming 85%. Meanwhile deaths among those aged 45 to 64, where alcohol was a contributing factor, rose nearly 25%. And the three top places affected? Washington D.C., Georgia, and Alabama. Many of the cases involved “binge drinking” among middle-aged women, which continues to be a major reason for emergency room visits, according to Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research.
Tackling the intangible. Understanding mind, thought, and consciousness.
“The idea is easy to grasp. They are not asking you to do anything unreasonable. I think this place is really life changing. I feel so much more positive about how I understand my thought process now. I think this program would be good for anybody even if you don’t have an addiction.” Part of the program is simply understanding the nature of the mind, thought and consciousness and how it pertains to alcohol abuse and life. Guests learn that they are not “broken: and capable of living a life of peace and serenity without alcohol. It’s almost like being reintroduced to something you forgot; it’s so familiar after a person starts to understand it. For many guests, it’s like a rediscovery of the person they really are.
Unlike drug abuse, drinking is far more culturally accepted.
From our blog article, “Alcohol: Socially Acceptable and Addictive.”
Alcohol: It’s cost effective, accessible, legal, socially acceptable, and addictive. Because of the overall public acceptance of alcohol, people who are addicted to alcohol can often hide their addiction for a very long time. With an “everybody enjoys alcohol” mentality, they can even hide it from themselves for a while and from others for an even longer time. Eventually, alcohol addiction shows itself for “everyone” to see, often leaving the person suffering with the addiction as the last one to fully recognize it.
A surprisingly small amount of alcohol use can become problematic. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism recommends that men should not have more than two drinks a day and that women have only one.
When drinking becomes a coping mechanism, a way of avoiding situations or a way to try to feel better, it is often a problem. The easiest test according to HelpGuide (a division of Harvard University) is, “If your drinking is causing problems in your life, then you have a drinking problem”.
Individualized Person-Centered Counseling
Gulf Breeze Recovery’s compliment of specialists help get to the root cause that underlie years of self destructive patterns. Our principled approach focuses on the underlying cause and the subsequent freedom from addiction, along with any co-occurring disorders such as depression, anxiety trauma, etc. The mental health recovery processes are tailored to each individual’s need and performed in three phases: developmental activities, small group activities, and intensive one-on-one individual counseling. All personal issues are reserved for the one-on-one discussions.
Aftercare: Continuing Care After You Leave
Everyone has the opportunity to expand and deepen their understanding with what they learned at Gulf Breeze Recovery. Not only do you have a chance to grow, but you also have a chance to help others in aftercare outside the rehabilitation setting. Virtual and local meetings that include alumni and counselors as well as speakers and guests keep our weekly aftercare a growing success.
- Continuation of one-on-one counseling, in-person or online
- Weekly online group meetings facilitated by a therapist.
- Secure closed-group electronic forum.
