Ocean Breeze Recovery Philosophy
At Ocean Breeze Recovery our Addiction Treatment Philosophy focuses on treating each person individually because we believe that every individual has unique challenges and specific needs. The substance abuse rehab offers 24-hour inpatient care, along with long-term residential treatment and outpatient services. With compassion, perseverance and unconditional acceptance, the professionals at Ocean Breeze provide a safe, structured and nurturing environment for individuals to tackle underlying issues and break free from the chains of addiction.
Areas of Specialization
If you are looking for the highest level of care, Ocean Breeze Recovery offers an intensive and residential-based inpatient program that will give you the structure and attention you need to address your addiction issues. Clients in our inpatient treatment program will receive quality mental and mental health care, support, and supervision 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our residential-based program will allow you to live in an apartment-type setting which is controlled and closely monitored and supervised. This secure environment will allow you and all of our clients the time you need to focus on addressing and overcoming your substance abuse issues for good. In this distraction-free environment, you can totally immerse yourself in a wide variety of intensive drug treatment services focus on the most important person…you.
Once you have successfully completed inpatient treatment, you will be able to transition into an intensive outpatient treatment program. Outpatient treatment provides the essential counseling and services that are needed to keep you motivated in working your plan of recovery, but in a more relaxed and independent atmosphere. With our intensive outpatient drug rehab programs, the staff of Ocean Breeze Recovery Center will prepare you to gradually transition back into your normal life and routine. Through continued therapy, life and coping skills training and relapse prevention education, you will continue to learn and hone these essential skills as you start living your day-to-day life.
What if your substance abuse issues are mild and you don’t require the structure and attention of an intensive drug treatment program? Ocean Breeze Recovery Center also offers outpatient treatment services that will allow you the time you need to focus on restoring the balance you need in life while having access to valuable and helpful drug treatment programs. For greater flexibility, our day rehab program allows you to take part in counseling sessions and treatment during the day so you can return to your home and family in the evening.
Recovering from drug and alcohol addiction is not a singular event in your life. In reality, recovery is a lifelong process and in order for you to have the best chances at long-term success, Ocean Breeze Recovery Center offers those recent graduates an alumni program that provides the extra support and encouragement you need. Our alumni rehab program offers you the opportunity to meet with fellow treatment center graduates for weekly support groups and will provide you with other related programs to all of our graduates in order to help you stay on track. Additionally, our alumni programs feature a variety of social events such as picnics, formal dinners, and sports outings so you can form new friendships and support networks while keeping your connection to Ocean Breeze Recovery strong.
My experience with Ocean Breeze and all of the staff there was incredible. The concern, the level of care and the learning and growth I experienced really took me by surprise. I never knew treatment could be so much fun and I was very grateful to spend so much time by the beach. The staff of Ocean Breeze truly inspired me to do whatever it takes not to return to the misery I was once in.
Before I went to Ocean Breeze I knew nothing about AA, journalism, or meditation. Now they are all a part of my daily life in recovery. The most important thing I learned during my treatment was how my mindset, behaviors, attitudes and negative beliefs all fed into my alcoholism. Ocean Breeze gave me a lot of tools to help me start to change and manage all these parts of me which are extremely helpful now that I’m home and back at work.
I am really excited about what happened for me at OBR. I have been involved in another residential rehab program in the past and I feel the groups and classes at Ocean Breeze were far superior. I got a lot of information and guidance from everyone there. Participation in AA was great and I realize now that I must continue to be involved in a 12-step program where I can be held accountable and be around other recovering alcoholics. Thank you Ocean Breeze!
The rejuvenating part of program for me was the beach and pool, bowling, taking walks, going out for lunch, getting my hair and nails done and shopping. I am so very grateful for the opportunity of recovery at Ocean Breeze. I am sober, happy and healthy as I hand my will and my life over to the care of God every day trusting that everything will fall into place when it is time. Thank you OBR.
