About Us

Who Are We?

We’re probably like you. Bayshore Retreat was forged out of the experiences of living with addiction. We’ve realized that drug addiction was controlling life, but we lacked the strength or humility to admit we were beat.

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. We are also the one who spends those sleepless nights searching the internet for help with our addict or addiction.

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

Our personal struggles and experiences led us to create Bayshore Retreat as a place that would be peaceful and inviting. Our tranquil water front location in beautiful Destin, FL brings relief when clients first arrive.  We strived to put everything into Bayshore Retreat that would help our clients discover themselves, regain their health and address their addiction individually. We know what works and what doesn’t. Having only 6 clients at a time proves we choose Quality over Quantity.

Most importantly we’re teamed with an outstanding staff and professionals who work together to ensure Bayshore Retreat offers the best possible drug and alcohol treatment you’ll find. Our Destin recovery program is truly about healing the mind, body and spirit.

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.
