About Changing Tides

Our goal at Changing Tides is to provide hope and coping skills for those struggling with the complexities of life.

We are committed to helping our clients achieve that experience through individual, group, and family therapy, psychoeducation, peer support, and an emphasis on structure.

    Everyone appears to have good intentions that work here but the facility is poorly ran and there is no direction going on. It felt like everyone was just winging it. That's probably why there is not another facility like this, because it ends up being a big mess! The "therapists" aren't even licensed therapists, I think that is misleading and probably illegal. The medical care is poor at best. I'm not sure how they get away with detoxing people at this place? I really don't see this place making it very long. And they are so cheap here, like as far as doing activities or asking for toilet paper, you will only get the bare minimum!

    The clinical team is well versed in professionalism, ethics, and boundaries. Utilizing an evidence based approach that incorporates experiential based techniques in order to treat clients from a biopsychosocial and spiritual framework. The facility operates from the Florida model emphasizing a real life environment which instills personal and peer based accountability. Treatment focuses on peer based environment highlighting safety and honesty. This treatment approach is highly regarded to work with the clients from a holistic perspective.

    Services provided at Changing Tides were created and implemented from prior experience and also most of them have been supported from research as effective parts of treatment. The therapy proportion of the services is prevalent and staff meetings focus on the quality of these services. The therapy aproaches include, individual, group and family therapy. The facility is open and supportive to all schools of therapy that are research based and effective in working with chemical dependency especially. The feedback that we get from clients is positive and also their feedback is taken in consideration in keeping the highest standards of service at all times.

    I had an excellent experience at Changing Tides. Each day I experienced therapy, fellowship, and free time. I had my on beach suite to retreat back to which allowed me the solitude I needed as an introvert, this was much needed for me, especially after socializing all day. I like the fact there was fitness and pool accommodations on site. I loved the fact that the beach was 29 steps from my room. The atmosphere, setting, price, ability to use cell phone, have pets, staff is like a family. Meals and activities.

    I immensely enjoy working at Changing Tides. I�m proud to be part of a treatment center where accountability takes place in a real-life, peer-driven atmosphere. By combining process-based therapy, CBT, utilizing the 12 steps, and incorporating family/support involvement, clients are given strong support in their unique recovery journey. Individualized treatment with on site care coordination by nursing staff. Pet friendly and private rooms available. The oceanfront location provides for the perfect backdrop to meditation and physical activity. Staff is approachable, professional, and personally interested in the success and growth of each client. Facility growth and improvement is a constant process being addressed by both staff and clients.

    The facility is located about 50 feet from the Atlantic Ocean. The sun rises are spectacular and the calming effect of the rhythmic ocean waves aid in the recovery process. Aubrey, the Facility Administrator, is a delight to work with. She is very professional, caring, and witty which helps everyone, staff and clients, to feel comfortable. She is also very accessible 24/7. The lodging for the clients is unique in that they have a little mini apartment equipped with a full kitchen. I feel like this is a great benefit to the clients because they are living in a real life setting and experiencing their recovery journey as they would live at home. The health and well being of all clients comes first. The therapy and activities are tailored according to individual needs. All services are on site where the clients live so there is no commute for individual or group. Location, staff commitment to clients, therapy, outside pool during the summer, safe location, client camaraderie, nurse on staff, therapist on staff. Needs a bit more client outings. therapy. There is an exercise room on site as well. The quality of the staff and their compassion to assist everyone on their journey to making a change to a healthy and productive life is priority.
