About Us

Jeff and JudyWho Are We?

Well, we are you. We’ve been the drug addict at his or her wit’s end, knowing his or her life has been reduced to nothing but lies, cover-ups, and excuses. We, like you, knew that our lives weren’t right, but we also lacked the strength or humility to admit we were beat.

Who Else Are We?

Well, we are you. We are the loved one who doesn’t know what to do. We are the mother, the father, the spouse, the sibling or the child who can see what’s happening to the loved one, but who doesn’t want to act out of fear of hurting or alienating that person. We are the one being eaten from the inside out of guilt, anger, frustration and fear. We are the one who stays awake at night hoping, and at the same time dreading that the phone might ring.

As founders: We Are a Mother and Son who have traveled the road you are on now. We’ve dealt with professional and financial problems resulting from drug and alcohol addiction. We’ve had the same frustrations, concerns, anxiety, anger, regrets and remorse that you’re having. We’ve also lost friends to death with drugs and alcohol.

Our personal struggles and experiences led us to create Bayshore Retreat. First as a place that would be peaceful and inviting, with a tranquil water front location in beautiful Destin, FL.  We strive to put everything into Bayshore that would help our clients discover themselves, regain their health and address their addiction individually. We know what works and what doesn’t. From experience, we choose Quality over Quantity.

Beyond that, we’re also teamed with an outstanding staff and professionals who work together to ensure Bayshore Retreat is the best possible drug and alcohol treatment center you’ll find.

The greatest satisfaction we (everyone at Bayshore Retreat) have is the knowledge that we’ve helped our clients achieve peace, health and success. We understand their desire to have a better life, therefore we do everything possible to help them make that a reality.
