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.Kristy M.
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!Glenn T.
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.John W.
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.Daniel B.

Dr. Marc J. Romano, CAP, LHRM, ARNP, BC, PSYD - Assistant Medical Director
I bring to my role as Assistant Medical Director the education, experience, and knowledge to provide a range of services to the clients we serve. My credentials as a Certified Addiction Professional, a Licensed Healthcare Risk Manager, a Board Certified Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, and a Licensed Clinical Psychologist allow me the knowledge base to pull from many different disciplines when treating clients. A little about my educational background, I completed my Bachelor’s in Psychology at the University of Connecticut in 1989 followed by relocating to England to complete a two-year Masters of Science degree in Clinical Psychology at Manchester University. In the early 1990’s, after working as a psychologist at St. Charles Hospital in London, England, I returned to the United States to complete a five-year Doctor of Psychology Program in Clinical Psychology at the University of Hartford, Connecticut. As part of this training and education, I completed a one-year APA Accredited Internship at Nova Southeastern University Community Mental Health Center in Fort Lauderdale followed by a one-year Post-Doctoral Residency program at the Juvenile Court Assessment Center in Miami. In 1998, I became licensed as a psychologist in Florida. In 2000, I began my nursing career and in 2003 I graduated from the Huran School of Nursing with and became licensed as a Registered Nurse. This was a wonderful and rewarding experience that encouraged me to further my nursing education by completing my Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Florida International University in 2008, and my Masters of Science in Nursing in 2012 at the University of South Alabama. In April 2013, I became a Board Certified Family Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP, BC). My work experience, like my education, has been very broad. I have worked in many positions as a psychologist, including a court psychologist, a therapist in both profit, not for profit organizations, and hospital settings, a clinical director and I have had my own private practice for almost fifteen years. As a nurse, I have worked in the areas of admissions, utilization review, employee health, infection control, and management. I have worked as a nurse in detox facilities, inpatient psychiatric settings, and on in settings for individuals with both addiction and mental illness.
