When I walked into Gulf Breeze Recovery I wasn’t looking for a new way to live, I was simply trying to stay alive. I had been through numerous 12-Step programs and while I could maintain sobriety for a period of time, my thinking and more importantly my perception of life continued to drag me back to drinking and substance abuse. The world seemed to be against me, the subsequent consequences continued to mount and before long I found myself in a divorce, my 6 month old son had been taken away and my seemingly perfect FaceBook life was in shambles. I reverted back to the only thing that I knew to escape, vodka and pills and eventually hard drugs. When I walked into GBR my liver enzymes were 100 times the normal level, I was dying at 35. GBR was unlike any facility I had ever been to, I was treated like a sick human being, not a hopeless alcohol/drug addict. The detoxication process was done in a kind and caring manner and was much easier than what I had made up in my head. It became clear that the program was extremely well thought out, each thing from neurofeedback to sauna and finally into the morning classes built upon one another. I began to stop thinking about what I needed to do out-there and noticed an entire shift in my perspective (consciousness) around week five. All of a sudden, I was noticing things that were always there, but that I never gave much attention to; the clouds, the smell of ocean, my breath and even other people! When I was using I was so caught up in myself that I simply shut down, my concentration was strictly on surviving another day. GBR helped to guide me back to who I really was (mostly through learning who I was not). When I came to GBR my greatest hope was that I could find a way to stop using substances and what I ended up receiving was so much more, it was a chance at truly living a fulfilling, serene and content life. I encourage all whom think they are hopeless to push forward and give Gulf Breeze Recovery a shot, you are not a lost cause.

I was doing the \"Leaving Las Vegas\" thing, slowly drinking myself to death when I found GBR. The staff was incredible, the facility clean and well maintained and if you went hungry, it was your fault. I was a little worried about the length of the program (this was my first and I naively thought they were all 28 days), but now I understand why the extra time. I wasn\'t ready to quit at 28 days, it took the extra time for me to consciously accept the fact that I was the only one that had input into my life, that no outside influence could make me do anything. Everything is one of the 10,000 or so thoughts we have everyday, including drinking. The big difference is GBR taught me how to approach those thoughts/urges, and how to be happy with my choices. Thanks to everyone there, you saved me.

Staff was tremendous in checking me in, they was always very kind and helpful with the meals being good for the most part. In the end compared to the other treatment facilities I've been in this one by far resonates the most and applies to my daily life going forward. I really don't have any negative things to say about the place, and I thank them for helping me getting my life back on track.

If you are reading this, then chances are you are looking at rehab for yourself or a loved one. I strongly urge you to give GBR a chance. After struggling for years, I hit rock bottom (again and again) and the program here is the only thing that has worked for me. The facility is beautiful and clean, the staff is compassionate, and this program WILL change your life.
