Gulf Breeze Recovery - Treatment Center Reviews (from Users)

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.
