August 29, 2014 was literally the day that changed my life. Five years prior I had become addicted to prescription pain pills. For five years, I lived with this secret and demon that controlled every second of my life. I hid it from family, friends, coworkers, and even perfect strangers. From the outside you would have thought I had it all: two beautiful little girls, a loving fiancé, and supportive friends and family, but inside I was miserable and felt like dying was the only way to end this vicious cycle. Two days before checking into Gulf Breeze my luck ran out, my fiancé found a bottle of forty pills and asked me if I had a drug problem, I was angry, yet relieved that my secret was exposed. I cried in his arms and said, "I need help!" I contacted a friend who had been in and out of rehabs several times, all of which were 12 step programs, and none of them had worked for her. She told me about a place she had just come back from called Gulf Breeze Recovery in Florida. She said, "I have been to them all, and Gulf Breeze is a godsend." She called Reed, and I could tell in his voice that he was sincere and willing to help me in any way he could. When I arrived, the place looked like a resort. I was greeted by a very friendly guy named Alex Wright; he showed me the facility and I was so impressed, a sense of relief came over me. I was scared of detox because I didn't know what to expect. I was worried about hurting, withdrawals, and whatever comes with getting off of opiates. The nurses and staff treated me like family and not just like another addict. My detox was very comfortable and the nurses accommodated me day and night. After I left the detox treatment I was moved to my permanent room, which was extremely nice and very comfortable. My first two weeks were spent in the spa and sauna to help more with the detox process. After about two weeks being there I started feeling like "Me" again. I was laughing with the other guests and it was genuine; I would cry because I missed my family, but it was also genuine. I wasn't masking my emotions anymore with pills. Being in Gulf Breeze Recovery, they don't remind you of what you were and what you did. They remind you that you still have and will always have good in you and that what you did in the past is over. Every day is a new day. It will be a year on August 29, 2015 that I have been sober. I could never have done this without my beloved friend who gave me this beautiful gift of Gulf Breeze Recovery. Gulf Breeze made me see how I can live a sober life by remembering the simplest, but oh-so-powerful, four little words, "It's just a thought." I wake up happy to be alive. I am a better mother, daughter, fiancé, friend, and human being because of the teachings at Gulf Breeze Recovery.

About 8 years ago I fell in love with a drug called OxyContin, all through high school and most of college I never did more than drink and occasionally smoke pot, but the first time I ever tried OxyContin I was hooked. You may not believe that the first time you try something that you can become addicted, but neither did I. I fought that addiction off and on for 8 years. During this time I was arrested and went farther in a deeper depression, where I felt the only relief was more pills. After about 9 months of OxyContin use, I was introduced to heroin. I never saw a way out. I tried multiple times to get clean, on my own, sometimes it wouldn't work and sometimes it would, for a little while. I went the suboxone route a few times and it simply became a way to get money to buy more heroin. August 2015 I decided that I needed to change for good, I checked into a detox facility in northeast Alabama. It was a 7 day medical detox, with the plan to go to an in-patient rehabilitation center afterwards. On day 4 I had made my mind up that, I didn't have time to go to rehab, I needed to work and could just get high off and on. My parents pleaded with me to go to in-patient, and I knew I needed it. I decided to give Gulf Breeze a call to learn more about the facility, philosophy, and treatment plan. After speaking with them I was set on going, I finally saw a light at the end of the tunnel. I checked into GBR on September 10th and for eight weeks, I learned that what I had been fighting all these years wasn't a battle with drugs, it was a battle with myself. I graduated from GBR on November 2nd, 2015 and life is amazing. Everything I was taught there, gave me hope that I wasn't going to have to fight this for the rest of my life. That I could live a substance free lifestyle without ever having to think of going back. I could not have chosen a better place than Gulf Breeze Recovery, and I am so grateful for every part of the staff, because without them I wouldn't be where I am today. They literally saved my life.

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 about four and a half 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.

Do not come here!! This place is absolutely terrible. My therapist blamed me for my rape. They told me I had to take accountability because I should have fought my attacker more. They said that I am being judgmental and unfair to my rapist if I think he is a bad person. They said my rapist did nothing inherently wrong, and just because I think it was wrong doesn’t make it objectively wrong. They said the fact I was raped isn’t the problem, but my thoughts about my rape is the problem. That I have an unhealthy thought process if I think my rapist did something wrong. They said I should have sympathy for my rapist. What about the sympathy for me? I was the one raped! They told me everything happens for a reason, including my rape. They said it was hypocritical for me to judge my rapist because if I were in his shoes I probably would have raped myself as well. What kind of therapists say things like this?? These people are so illegitimate. My therapist knew I fought him a little and ended up with bruised ribs. It was painful for me to take anything more than a shallow breath for about a week. Yet according to my therapist I had to take accountability because I didn’t fight him even more as he held me down and raped me and threatened to kill me. These people are so terrible and they should not be allowed to call themselves therapists. If you are reading this, know that rape is NEVER your fault. Don’t let this “rehab” make you think otherwise. If you are scared and didn’t fight at all, it is still not your fault. You said no. It is the rapist’s fault. It is always the rapist’s fault. You are not being judgmental nor are you being a bad person for thinking your rapist did something bad. Because he did. He did something absolutely terrible and I am so sorry for you. His actions were inherently wrong and unjustifiable. Don’t let these “therapists” tell you that your rape is not inherently wrong and that the problem is your thinking about it, not the rape itself. Please do not come here if you have any sort of trauma in your life. Sexual, physical, verbal, emotional, whatever abuses your trauma stems from stay far away from this hellhole. They will tell you that the abuse doesn’t matter and that it isn’t wrong to be treated that way. They will say the problem is that you think it is wrong. The fact that you know abuse is not acceptable is a great thing! Many people in abusive situations think it is their fault and that their abuser did nothing wrong. It is good that you realize you should be treated with respect and that you can recognize unhealthy situations. These terrible people will try to change that and make you think your situation is acceptable, just your thinking about it is what is wrong. This is such backwards thinking. Abuse is not acceptable. Abuse is inherently wrong. It is good that you don’t accept your abuse. I’ve spent almost 2 years since leaving this “rehab” working with an actually legitimate therapist, dealing with all the harmful beliefs that were beaten into me during my two months at GBR. GBR gives you a therapist to work with after leaving. They are all just as painfully illegitimate, and believe in the same harmful ideology. I stopped seeing my aftercare therapist almost immediately and am so grateful for my real therapist. Save yourself the $35k and the years of therapy it will take to get these harmful notions out of your head, and do not come near this place! Please, I wish someone stopped me before coming here. If I can help even one person with abuse or trauma realize how terrible this place is I’ll be happy knowing I’ve helped someone avoid all the additional pain this place has brought me. This rehab, and the therapists that work here, deserve to have all their licenses revoked. They are not real therapists. Please protect your mental health and do not come here. Please note: The only reason I gave the staff 5 stars is because I found the nurses, cooks, and cleaning staff absolutely wonderful! I considered the therapists under the treatment section, which I gave 1 star. Unfortunately, no matter how amazing the staff is, what really matters is the therapists and the treatment, which I found absolutely terrible.

I checked into GBR March 7th, 2017. I had a pretty good idea about the program which was nice. From the start the staff was great about check-in and making sure I felt as comfortable as possible. Having had history with the program it made starting classes a little more comfortable. I was really able to focus on myself and search for what would help me out on understanding what it is I want. The facility is extremely nice and well kept with amazing views. The food is outstanding! GBR has truly provided me help to get my mind back on track and enjoy life again.
