Great therapists, groups, and techs made for an amazing experience. Housing is located on the beach which provided a relaxing time.
Everything was pretty good except for there were no adventure activities or outings like stated on your website. That was truly disheartening.
The only thing I would change is getting your personal phone more than once a week.

Areas of Focus
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
Some facilities have an addiction treatment protocol that all patients or clients are expected to follow, while others customize or individualize treatment based on a person’s unique needs and circumstances. Factors that may affect treatment decisions include age, lifestyle, medical conditions, type of drug, religious beliefs, etc.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
15 months ago, the only option I had was death...plain and simple. I didn't love myself enough to even want to live anymore. It wasn't until I completely let go and surrendered during a sunset in California that I heard a voice that told me "Not Yet." That night and next day, by none of my OWN devices, I was led to JourneyPure in Panama City Beach. I took a leap of faith to travel 2,000 miles to a city I had never been and to put my recovery in the hands of people that were complete strangers to me. But, because of the love and support of the staff at this facility, they provided me with a foundation to begin a new life of sobriety. Because of them, I began to TRULY live my life, but more importantly, I began to love MYSELF again. I can not fully articulate how much these people mean to me.
