Bayshore Retreat in Destin, Florida.

Choose wisely and compare everything. We’ve proven smaller is better for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

Our mission is to provide quality care and help those who want to change their life from addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. We do this by limiting our clients to as few as six (6) at a time in a home environment. Bayshore Retreat is as unique as you are. Here are some of the reasons why:

2. By keeping our program to small groups, we’re able to establish a solid bond that gives clients the best chance of permanent recovery and freedom from addiction.

3. Our water front location is in beautiful Destin, Florida. That’s in the Panhandle Gulf coast with easy access by vehicle or flights into three major airports.
