ABOUT OCEAN BREEZE RECOVERY

Based in Pompano Beach, Fla., Ocean Breeze Recovery provides a full continuum of treatment services for individuals struggling with addiction. The center specializes in treating clients with co-occurring mental health disorders through programs including detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), standard outpatient care (OP), and sober living support.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The center’s admissions process includes a comprehensive evaluation, the findings of which inform each client’s personalized treatment plan. Individuals who require intensive treatment and a high level of structure typically opt for inpatient residential care, which provides 24-hour support in a safe environment. Inpatient clients are introduced to the 12-Steps and participate in both individual and group therapy sessions that employ psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing, the program balances out these traditional modalities with more holistic options, including yoga, meditation, acupuncture, and mindfulness training. Clients also spend time developing life skills that address everything from financial planning to healthy relationships.

The facility’s intensive outpatient and standard outpatient programs offer similar treatment, but at a lower intensity. Clients may attend treatment sessions during the day or evening and return to their homes. There is also an increased emphasis on relapse prevention, which makes the center’s outpatient offerings a good option for clients who are leaving the residential program and seeking step-down treatment.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The center’s staff includes a clinical licensed psychologist, a psychiatrist, a registered nurse, master’s level therapists, a licensed mental health counselor, and a case manager.

ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES

While undergoing treatment, residents stay in apartment-style accommodations that are located within walking distance of the beach. Apartments are fully furnished and include a modern kitchen and outdoor patio. Clients typically share a bedroom with one other resident. The facility provides transportation to the treatment center, local recovery groups, and any medical or legal appointments. Clients have access to a fitness center, volleyball, and beach meditation sessions.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY

Most alumni surveyed by Rehabs.com were satisfied with their treatment experiences. When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility to others, the seven survey respondents provided an average rating of 4.29 out of five stars. “My favorite thing about this treatment center was the staff and how much they genuinely care about each and every client,” R.J.W. wrote in a representative review. While the facility received above average ratings in all evaluated categories, the program’s exercise and leisure offerings, its level of connectivity, and the center’s level of cleanliness performed best, with respective ratings of 4.43, 4.29, and 4.29 uot of five stars, respectively. Multiple respondents found the center’s beach access to be a fun and therapeutic program component. “They also help integrate us back into society by letting us go out to eat, to the beach, and do fun activities such as bowling and the movies,” Mason wrote.

The program’s affordability, family programming, and holistic offerings received slightly lower ratings of 3.83, 3.29, and 3.17 out of five stars, respectively. Some alumni noted that communication with loved ones was too restricted. “No phone privileges without two weeks of arrival & after that you get 10 mins. with a staff member sitting along side you,” R.M. wrote. And Tia described communication with family members as “next to impossible.”

WHAT FRIENDS & FAMILY SAY

When asked how likely they were to recommend the facility to others, the nine loved ones polled by Rehabs.com to date provided an average rating of 3.56 out of five stars. The highest ratings went to the center’s cleanliness, family participation, and connectivity, which received respective ratings of 3.89, 3.89, and 3.78 out of five stars. One anonymous loved one echoed alumni concerns that there should be “more outside visits,” but noted that the center’s treatment was ultimately effective.

The center’s counseling options and the staff’s level of training and experience both received an above average rating of 3.56 out of five stars. “I think the employees at this facility do their best to help individuals find a new way to live,” one anonymous respondent wrote. This same reviewer noted that the facility’s expense was a downfall, a concern obviously echoed by other survey respondents, as the center’s affordability received the lowest rating of 3.1 out of five stars.

WHAT STAFF SAY

John, the one staff member surveyed by Rehabs.com to date, had only good things to say about the center and its offerings, noting that he would recommend the program to others. “I have worked for other rehab programs before; lets just say it wasn't the best environment… The staff takes great pride in the work we do and that benefits the clients,” he wrote.

FINANCING

The facility’s website states that it accepts most insurance plans. Admissions staff are also available to help potential clients determine their eligibility and calculate any out-of-pocket expenses. Financing for treatment can be arranged through the facility’s partnership with American Healthcare Lending.

I want to say that this is the second time that my daughter has been her and the staff has been nothing but professional. It has changed since she was there last time. They are constantly improving for the better. They really care for the clients there. They offer everything that will help and recovery the individual. It is solely up to the individual to want to recover. Facility is nice, and they really watch out for the clients. I really love that she is here and hope it is her last time!!!!

Residence accommodations were filthy. The treatment center was clean but bathrooms were a disgrace. Group treatment consisted of a lot of movies and meditation (sleeping) . I would not recommend this place if someone is truly needing help for addiction.

Ocean Breeze needs to work on communicating with the involved families. Please be aware, they will shut you off and pull the HIPPA Law card on you and leave you in the dark... They also will not listen to anything you may be able to add in their assessment of the addict you have been living with for years. They will believe the lies the addict has been telling you before they will even consider asking the families anything. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Very unprofessional, unorganized, non-communicative. Go somewhere that will talk to you.

Personable staff, treated clients like family. Counselors were not as effective as others. My loved one would not be here today without the treatment received at OBR. I think the facility has been bought out over the last couple years & may not be as personable as before.

I greatly appreciate what OBR has done for me during my time with them. I was a mess when I came in and they gave my the tools, knowledge, and helped to motivate me towards a life of sobriety. There is no magic wand to grant instant recovery for anyone, but if you're willing to commit yourself to the program and be open and honest Ocean Breeze will assuredly be able to put you on the right path and help you recognize the pitfalls as they appear.

I believe this treatment center helps you effectively identify your underlying problems and learn to deal with them on a daily basis. It introduces you into the fellowship program and you learn about the fundamentals on staying sober. You also get the experience back into everyday healthy life skills, as well as interacting in a group setting. I got a lot from Ocean Breeze.

My favorite thing about Ocean Breeze is the structure that they gave me. We were taken out to meetings where some people in the Program had 30 years of sobriety. We were taken out to go grocery shopping. The best thing was that I developed a relationship with my Higher Power which I choose to call God. The Christian groups helped me to accomplish that.

OBR was the right choice for me as far a first treatment center, the ingenuity of the staff helped me to open my ears and way of thinking and truly give the idea of addiction and recovery an honest consideration which almost immediately changed my negative based mindset into one of a positive nature that looked at the possibilities of life rather than the inevitabilities. I can not stress enough how much this change in the way of my thinking helped me internally. I believe that the ingenuity of the staff reaches just about everyone willing to stick through the first week or so of treatment which leads to a strong community of supportive peers within the clientele which was imperative to my own recovery. I feel forever indebted to the kindness I was shown here. Real talk.

Overall I was very pleased with everything that OBR had to offer me and help me with when it came to my recovery.

The Techs hold this place together. They make this place feel like a family. The clients will welcome you before you have a chance to even put down your bags. I had a chance to find myself and take a step forward in my recovery and rediscover who I was. I hopefully can return the favor one day at a time.

Our staff is extremely motivated and our primary goal is the success of the clients. Many of us are in recovery and have been down the dark road, it let's us really relate to them and build a strong relationship .We are often at capacity and that limits the amount of scholarships we are able to take in. I've worked at OBR for a little over a year now and have had a great experience my entire time here. I have worked for other rehab programs before; lets just say it wasn't the best environment. OBR cares about its employees and will bend over backwards for them. The staff takes great pride in the work we do and that benefits the clients.

My sisters changed in so many positive ways, but wont admit to any of it. Im sure she realizes it. She gave the folks at ocean breeze a hard time by leaving twice and she said she hates them and started posting nasty reviews about the company. But it was only because she got dreamy eye'd over a technician there, but she said he wouldn't even connect with her eyes because they are too professional and won't go out with the patients. Anyway, shes a much better brighter person. and this was her 3rd treatment center in a year.

I want to thank everyone at OBR for helping me. I learned so many life skills & how to start loving myself again. It was my first time in tretment and I was scared to go away from home. Making this decision was the best thing I could have ever done. I have been sober for over 5 years now and I owe a lot of it to the strong foundation I built at OBR.

Official Facility Response

OBR was the absolute worst I have been to in going to various rehab places. I still have nightmares about the place, it is like prison, no phone privileges without two weeks of arrival & after that you get 10 mins. with a staff member sitting along side you. Also every day you take a large van (packed full of people) to and from the "Center" & then back to the residence. It was a waste of my money and time. Also DO NOT believe that they are located on the ocean. The population is too large and they do not know how to handle it properly. ( I guess money speaks louder than words). Also to let you know that you're responsible to make your own breakfast (unless you call pop-tarts and bagels a breakfast), but you are responsible to make your own lunch and dinner every day and also wash up all the dishes. You also have to "GI" your room on Sundays. There is no maid service. All I can say is that they will sell you a "bill of goods" to get you to their facility. Please do me a favor and make sure what you're buying into over the internet. P.S. I didn't learn a thing from OBR that I didn't already know from previous experience. I also for got to tell you how rude and inconsiderate the younger population is and also the staff. I never heard the "F" word so many times in my life. I did leave there before completing the program and thank God I did. Also this post may not show on their website since I had to agree that they would have the right to remove and reviews any comments that were consider abusive or believed fraudulent. I will let it me it be known one way or another that they are not the rehab you might think they are!

Ocean breeze recovery was an absolutely amazing experience. The techs are nothing short of amazing. They are the reason for my second visit here. They make you feel at home, and try to help you with every possible need you may have. The program as a whole will help you with coping with feelings you will have as a recovering addict. The program also gives you a different way to see your addiction as it is, and will give you the fundamentals to succeed in the outside world. I would highly recommend Ocean Breeze recovery to anyone who wants to take recovery serious.

It was also a good experience to hear from other people and understand now where everyone is coming from and also serves as a warning that I don't want to be in that position of using ever again. I believe at this time that my life will be much better thanks to the treatment plan.

Ocean Breeze Recovery far surpassed any expectation of what a treatment facility could provide. The entire staff genuinely cares and many of them have been exactly where I was. That alone was a huge part of making me feel comfortable. My overall experience here is that you get back from this program exactly what you put into it.

Ocean Breeze is a great place. The clinical staff keeps you motivated and gives you hope in recovery. At ocean breeze I was given the tools to be successful in recovery. The residence is a beautiful building with a pool, and is only steps away from the beach. I have learned very much from this place and OCEAN BREEZE RECOVERY SAVED MY LIFE.

Been to many treatment centers and this place provided the one on one treatment that I needed for my recovery, and provided nutrition classes to help with my eating disorders. Help me deal with all my personal issues to live a better life!

This facility is amazing, they have helped me learn the tools to recovery and how to apply them in everyday situations. They also help integrate us back into society by letting us go out to eat, to the beach, and do fun activities such as bowling and the movies. Overall, I love this facility and the staff here, they are all so helpful, loving and caring. Thank you Ocean Breeze!

I wouldn't be alive to type this review today if I didn't get help from OBR. I can't say this without getting a tear in my eye. Thank you for showing me how to re-live my life. Thank you for helping me pull out the source of my depression. I recommend the OBR family 1000 times over.

Ocean Breeze is the whole nine yards! 5 out of 5 stars! Strengths were: relaxation, overall treatment pracitices, 12 step, they took us all over the place, 5 star restaraunts, beach trips, medical/dental services, everybody was treated fairly. However, IOP OP Program was weak.

I had a very bad medical experience here and was disbelieved by staff and am still recovering. There was no compassion for me. A lot of young people, very hectic.

Ocean Breeze rocks! My husband is doing amazing! Hes working and paying his own way through treatment and getting his life back. We have 5 kids and they are getting their father back. He is a completely different person than before he went into treatment. He is charismatic and charming, which he lost when he fell into his addiction. I now have the man that I fell in love with back. This program is amazing! They are everything I could ask for in a treatment program. They allow us to keep in contact with him and continue to encourage his recovery.

Ocean breeze recovery is a completely misleading and deceiving place. The pictures and information on their website is not nearly accurate. The actual building where the residence stay in is old, dirty, and run down, there is no such place in the facility that is "spotlessly clean" or " updated" as they claim on their own site. You are forced to share a dirty room with 3 other total strangers and also share one disgustingly dirty bathroom that they do not clean. The staff that I had direct contact with were all a total joke and were only concerned with walking around puffing vape. There are a few staff member who genuinely seem to care and want to help the clients, but majority are 100% unprofessional. I was personally at OBR from Pennsylvania and it was the worst experience of my life they are not there to help people they are there to collect peoples money without giving them any real help knowing they will relapse and be back. If you aren't religious stay far away from ocean breeze as they attempt to push god on you constantly. if you are serious about getting addiction help do not go to ocean breeze recovery.

I would like to thank the caring staff at OBR for helping me to tackle and process my addiction issues, As an addict I have been in many rehabs,10 with OBR included. There is no better place to start your recovery, at least not on this planet. For anyone still sick and suffering, give yourself a chance at life and call OBR.

My husband recently came home from this center and it is less than effective. While his time there seemed to really help there was no transition plan. Furthermore, the website has a whole tab dedicated to families part in recovery and a 3 day program which never was even mentioned. Whenever I spoke to him he was so drugged and out of it(which I understand is needed for an alcoholic to recover) but there was no weaning off the "comfort meds" and there was no transition doctor/sponsor or plan for when he came home. I had no idea as his wife, my role/support in his recovery. So here we are, right where we started from with a large amount of money and time wasted.

OBR kept in constant contact with us regarding our son, while keeping his personal treatments and conversations completely confidential. He entered that facility a broken mess, and emerged a confident man, with so many wonderful opportunities before him. He's a changed man for the better, and he realizes that it was all due to his rehabilitation at OBR.

The place is great! The staff is really nice. But the pictures are not what it seems you can't see the ocean from your room and the rooms are not that big there are 2 pent house suites on the 6th floor and that's why it looks like a mini apartment. Don't get me wrong the apartments are nice, just not that nice! They make you clean, cook, and do dishes a lot but I think it helped me. The rules are also a lot stricter since I went there but I enjoyed my time.

Over all the facility is clean and up to date...They have activities on the weekends, they have people who care and they have a staff that can really relate to each patient. You are allowed to smoke and buy your own food with money they provide...My only complaints would be the favoritism amongst the patients...I felt the ones who followed the rules and did what they were told, were over looked by the staff and counselors...Also this program only requires two, one hour, one on one sessions per week with your counselor. I felt that two hours of individual work per week was not sufficient time to talk about my problems...I have attended this facility a few times and I will not be returning. If you want to clear your head for 30 days, then this is the place for you. If you are looking to beat an addiction I would not recommend this place but every one is different and they have had some success. Also when I left the place I was substantially billed for the urine analysis...They fill every single bed they have so the setting wasn't as intimate as I would have liked.
