Specialization

  • Aftercare Support

    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Dr. and his wife are not caring and unprofessional. The staff is on a power trip. They will treat your loved ones like a child. The so called therapist is not competent. Dr. only wants to make money ($10,000 a month). They never suggest anyone is ready to leave after 30 days. Everyone is kept at least 3 months or until they don't have any more money. I was scared to death the whole time I was there. Please send your yourself, child or parent somewhere else.

If I could give this place a negative rating, I would. I came out much worse than when I went in. They lied to my family and me. The doctor told my husband I had taken drugs I HAD NOT!!! I am a straight alcoholic. They wasted our money and lied to get my husband to pay for another month because they knew we had money. Their only motivation was monetary and went to any lengths to get it. The doctor was determined not to let me out at 30 days and had me sent falsely to the psychiatric ward 3 days shy of my supposed discharge date in the attempt to keep me at Destin Recovery and take our money. He tried to get the Sheriff's Department to do the paperwork. They refused, so the doctor did it. The psychiatric ward released me immediately because it was unwarranted. They also refused to send me back to that hellhole and sent me home. That little trip to the psychiatric ward cost $14,000, and the doctor refused to pay it. The psychiatric nurse said the doctor had done this before. BEWARE! Destin Recovery practices humiliation and degradation. They had me crying in front of the whole group because I was helping other patients. They said I wasn't concentrating on my own problems. What a farce! I checked in because I needed help. Another week in the same group, one of my roommates was verbally abused for dressing slutty. The next week, my other roommate was abused for looking sultry. She was a beautiful lady and did nothing special to look sultry. My last week, he picked on a lovely lady who was in the outpatient program. She did nothing to deserve it! While I was there, the doctor only picked on women and appears to have a deep-seated resentment against us. The website makes the center look like a great place to be. Don't be fooled by this. We were only allowed to go to the beach 1 time, and we all had to walk together. There was no swimming, sunbathing, paddle boarding, or kayaking even though they advertise it. The absolute worst of all this is that my marriage broke up because my husband believed the doctor's lies. Even though the doctor did NOT have permission to talk to my family, he did anyway and involved my husband in his hellacious plans for me. Because of this, my husband felt entitled to verbally and emotionally abuse me until I left him months later. The doctor knew my husband had controlling and narcissistic issues. My husband was played like a fiddle! The doctor's notes in my record state several medical conditions he thought I had. I HAD NONE OF THEM!!! My test results from the psychiatric ward back this up, and there were NO drugs or alcohol in my body. They discourage family involvement. I was not allowed to talk to my husband for 2 weeks, and then, only on speakerphone in front of my therapist. My husband agreed to research other treatment centers for me. My therapist called him behind my back to ask him not to. I asked when my husband could visit. She said in a couple of weeks, which was after my discharge date. They had no intention of discharging me and convinced my husband not to pick me up after 30 days. I COULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN OUT at 30 days! I was a prisoner. I only got out because they sent me to the psychiatric ward. It was supposed to keep me for 3 days then send me back to Destin Recovery for another month. It backfired on the doctor. The psychiatrist rescinded the order and sent me home. I now have PTSD because of the whole experience and will be in therapy for years. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT GO OR SEND ANYONE HERE!!! You will waste money and be humiliated. By the way, the doctor's wife is also his nurse. Between the 2 of them, they have a horrible addiction treatment center scam going.

The doctor only cares about money. Don\'t waste yours on this place. Don\'t send someone you love here. My therapist was terrible... Don\'t let them contact your family. I couldn\'t talk to mine for 2 weeks and only on speakerphone in front of the therapist. Visits are not allowed.

This facility compassionately teaches patients what will be required to sustain and love long term recovery. They are willing to spend the time with each patient to really explore the struggles that new recovery brings and help find solutions. The techs are almost all in recovery and their experience gIves hope!

absolute waste of time and money. If you need help with a substance abuse issue, go somewhere else. Did not even begin to touch on the issues that lead to my relapse. Treat patients like they are children and even though the dr is at the office 5 days a week, he\'s not very helpful.
