I checked into Gulf Breeze Recovery on June 5, 2017. The moment I walked in the door I was greeted with warm smiles and open hearts. I was scared. Terrified. Who isn't scared of going into recovery? At Gulf Breeze, they understand your fear. The nursing staff took me right in and immediately made me feel comfortable during my time in detox. I can't even begin to explain the love and compassion the nurses have for each individual there. They truly care about making sure you are okay, comfortable, and aware that they are there for you 24/7. When I finally gained clarity I was able to really grow into the person I truly I am without substances, the person I had been hiding from for years. I learned so much about addiction. At Gulf Breeze, the counselors and staff are so amazing and really help guide you in finding your true inner being. Each human being is born with this innate wisdom. With substance abuse, I was unable to be aware of that. I was always trying to control my thinking. What I realize now is that we can't control our thinking, but we can control how we respond to our feelings that come from our thinking. Its such a simple concept and I would never know who my true self is without Gulf Breeze Recovery. The facility is beautiful overlooking Pensacola Bay. The staff works so hard to keep it clean and organized as they know comfort is a huge part of recovery. The food is THE BEST as they have two incredibly talented chefs. Even the chefs care deeply about you and your recovery. I would recommend GBR to anyone struggling with addiction. It is a judgement free zone with some of the most beautiful people I have ever met and I am forever grateful for the experience I had in recovery.

Learned a lot while at Gulf Breeze Recovery! Awesome staff. I have substantial clean time now, and my time at GBR was an integral part of my recovery story!

I did not read any reviews before going to Gulf Breeze Recovery, but for those of you who do read reviews, please read this one. I admitted myself to GBR in 2015 after an extensive struggle with opiates and then Suboxone for several years. I tried many times to taper the Suboxone on my own, but like most I was unsuccessful. I came to GBR as a last ditch effort to find some relief. What I found was amazing and mind boggling at first. I was expecting to sit in groups and admit all the bad things I had done and then be shamed and told what I bad person I was and that I was broken and would be on anti-depressants and have to sit in 12 step meetings the rest of my life. What I found at GBR was very different and after I had some clarity I was able to see what these people were trying to show me. The bottom line is we are born with innate wisdom and when one is reaching out to substances for comfort, all the wisdom is covered up. I could go on and on about this program and facility. I can tell you from the moment I walked in the door I was never judged, which was big for me. I was never shamed or guilted, but what my therapist assisted me with was losing the shame and guilt I did have, which had been holding me back for years. I was able to meet with her 1 to 2 times a week, which I benefited greatly from. The aftercare that GBR set up for me was amazing and helped me get to where I am today. The facilty is absolutely gorgeous and overlooks Pensacola Bay. My experience was life changing and I owe this place and the people there my life. If you are reading this and are considering treatment you are probably frightened as I was as well. I was put at ease as soon as I walked in the door. The staff is incredible as well as the meals. The staff appropriately addressed every need I had. Getting sober is not easy for anyone, however, I can promise you that this facility and program make it tolerable. All it takes is willingness and an open mind. You will discover something wonderful within yourself. I am not saying that my life now is a fairytale, but I can say that I am able to sit with my feelings and thoughts and I am at peace with me. Thank you for reading.

I highly recommend Gulf Breeze Recovery. After my time at GBR, I am not “in recovery”, I am RECOVERED! The transformation that has taken place within me during my stay at GBR and afterwards is indescribable. I am continually amazed at the changes I’ve experienced in my addictions, well-being, relationships, anxiety/stress levels and overall happiness. And, things seem to continue to get better! Once you SEE for yourself the principles that are explored at GBR, it is impossible to ever un-see these principles. GBR provides an excellent environment to begin the life changing process of learning & understanding these simple principles. Each stage/aspect of GBR’s program including detox, sauna, neuro feedback, coursework, physical health, mental health, healthy diet, education, reflection, meditation, free time, etc is well planned & beneficial to the overall process of not only removing the addiction but guiding you towards a new perspective on life after rehabilitation. The continuing education counselor provided by GBR to work with after leaving GBR has been extremely good for me as well. GBR provides several counselors outside of their facility to choose from upon leaving GBR…you & your GBR counselor will work together to find the best “fit” for your life after GBR. In closing, please review the recovery approach of Transformational Recovery Centers (GBR) vs Traditional Recovery Centers (12-Step). Of course 12-Step programs have helped many people over the years & they continue to do so, but there is another, better way that WORKS…GBR can and will provide the foundation for a new life for you like it did for me. I will be forever grateful for Gulf Breeze Recovery. The food is awesome too!

I checked into GBR June 3, 2016. I cannot overstate the impact my stay there made on me. I truly believe they saved my life. Actually, it would be more accurate to say they showed me that I had the ability to save my own life all along. I have been clean for ten months as I write this review. I truly thought that I was beyond repair. I had been kicked out of my last rehab, I had come and gone, unmoved, from the rooms of 12 step meetings, and I honestly thought that I was destined to die with a needle in my arm. GBR offered me a safe place to come to the realization of my innate value. I had tried looking outside of myself for peace for so long that it was completely revolutionary to realize that the only place I needed to look was within. I could literally go on and on about the counselors and the rest of the staff. However, I think that my experience can be summed up by saying that there is no doubt in my mind that I would not be alive today had I not found this treatment center. And, today, the quality of my life has already surpassed any hopes I had for myself before coming here. And it gets even better every day.

I spent the better part of 15 years using methamphetamine. It had taken over my life and my ability to be comfortable around anyone, most of all myself. I knew I needed help and I had finally gotten to a place where I wanted help. I had never been to rehab before and wasn’t really sure where to start. I knew that a 12 step program was not for me. I just started searching the internet and Gulf Breeze Recovery kept popping up. I called a few places only to get an answering service. I was left feeling discouraged and because of this, I was reluctant to call GBR. When I finally worked up the courage to call, Reed answered the phone. I’m so glad he did because I’m not sure I would have ever made it to any rehab if I had not spoken to a real person. Everyone at GBR went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. Everyone there was so nice and helpful. During my 12 week stay at GBR I learned, not just how to survive but how to live life healthy and happy. I enjoy life now, a life that I now know I deserve. I thank God that I found GBR. It is the real deal! Thank you Gulf Breeze Recovery for saving my life!

My name is Jon Beyer, I'm 31 years old, and I attended Gulf Breeze Recovery Center for my drinking. I had been completely dependent on alcohol for 15 years. I had no respect for myself, and I no hope for the future. I had tried to taper, and I was still waking up at night to maintain. My mother recommended Gulf Breeze because she agreed with their principles, and she believed that this was my last chance. I didn't know what to expect, and I had had negative experiences with seeking help in the past, but I would have tried anything because I believed my life depended on it. I was dreading the detoxification process, because I would get ill when I didn't have enough to drink, but I was pleasantly surprised by how brief my detox was. The doctor and nursing staff made me feel very comfortable and welcome. After detox the real beauty of Gulf Breeze began to shine through. All of the staff and even the other guests created an amazingly nurturing and caring environment for me. And though I had my solitude, I never felt alone. I felt that everyone there truly wanted the best for me, and believed I could achieve it. The counselors teach you how your brain works, how your thoughts can work for you instead of against you. They teach you how to process stress, understand emotions, and become at peace with yourself. They taught me that there was nothing wrong with me. I didn't have a disease; the drinking was just a symptom of how I was living. Just like if I don't have a headache, I don't think about aspirin, drinking rarely crosses my mind, but if it does, that thought will pass. Gulf Breeze has a knowledgeable, compassionate staff, an extensive library to utilize, fantastic accommodations, delicious cuisine, and a comprehensive curriculum. They have a great facility, and they provide plenty of free time for relaxation, meditation, or exorcise. The one-on-one counseling is fantastic, and the entire staff is always happy to talk with you. 8 weeks can seem like a long time, but I felt like it was necessary to practice being my new, sober self. It really didn't feel like that long when I was there, and giving 60 days to have the rest of my life back was a great investment. It wasn't always easy, but I was definitely worth it. And, they make it easy to stay in touch with loved ones. Sometimes I think that Gulf Breeze shouldn't be a recovery center, because everyone, regardless of whether or not they have an addiction, can benefit from the principles. If you are even the least bit curious about changing your life, I can't recommend them enough. What they do works. I knew my life was bad, but I didn't know how bad until I saw how good it could be. I never could have seen that without them. I’ll be eternally grateful for Gulf Breeze Recovery; they gave me my life back.

I brought my son to GBR after reading all these fabulous reviews. I seriously hoped for the same kind of recovery that others had spoken about. The admissions counselor seemed to know exactly where I, as the desperate and discouraged parent, was coming from. I personally took out a large loan, as our insurance didn't cover standalone treatment facilities, and took him in. The nurses and counselors are truly wonderful. I could not have asked for more. My son loved the nurses too. His counselors were very helpful, although I would have liked him to have had more time with them. The ideas are sound, and I got a lot out of the books that they gave him. If he had wanted to make any of it stick, it would have been great, but they could not change who he is, nor give him hope for the future, so it didn't work. He doesn't drink as much as he did before, and we have more sober days than we did before, but I feel that it is only honest to say that it doesn't always work. Frankly, if I only read positive reviews about a place, I would begin to wonder if they were "rigged". The building is lovely, it is on Pensacola Beach Blvd, however, there is no ocean access. The pictures led me to believe it was right on the beach and that my son would walk along the beach or sit on the beach and make life decisions. The truth is that there is a small piece of sand that overlooks the water, but it is not really a beach, and no one is allowed to be alone outside anyway, so don't expect that. I"m just letting people know what I found vs what I thought I would find. I don't think I would go so far as to call the cooks executive chefs, but they did cook dinners and my son said many of them were good. He didn't care for all of them though, and when he asked for Ensure instead of a meal, I was charged for that. I thought that was a little strange. Keep in mind that although the staff may be awesome, your family members may be still be hard to live with, and there may be disagreements between other guests and your addict. They are all grown ups with big problems, so don't expect all hearts and flowers and friends forever. My son was kind of a jerk sometimes when he went in and that didn't change. He's still kind of a jerk sometimes, and I'm sure he was tough to live with, as he told me that other guests were tough to live with too. I found that the pricing, as well as the length of treatment, were negotiable, which seemed a little odd. I"m grateful that they are sensitive to those of us who are not made of money, but feel that others should know that the first price they tell you may not be your only option. I read hundreds of reviews before I selected a place for my son. I know I really appreciated those who gave their honest feedback, as this is an industry plagued with scammers. Gulf Breeze is not a scam. It is a good idea. I think it could really make a difference if your addict would listen and use their information. It just didn't work right now with my son. I thought there might be more follow up with him after he left, but there was not much. He was assigned to a new counselor whom he had never met, so I don't think he ever called her. If your addict relapses and you want to send them back, there is no discounted rate, so I hope it works for you on the first round.
