Holistic Help and Healing
We Provide The Care We Wish We Had Received
At Bayshore Retreat, we serve families because we are family. Bayshore was founded by my son, Jeff, Jeff’s friend and colleague, Megan Deane, and me. Our decision to create Bayshore Retreat was born not of altruism or idealism. It was born of necessity and of understanding.
You see, the three of us have traveled the road you are on now. We’ve dealt with professional and financial problems resulting from drug and alcohol addiction. We’ve endured the same fears, frustrations, doubts, worries, anger, regrets, remorse, blame, and shame that you’re likely facing now.
We’ve buried friends lost to drug and alcohol dependency. We said goodbye to too many beautiful souls who could not endure the battle against addiction any longer. We’ve seen the confusion, self-recrimination, and despair in the eyes of those we love. And we’ve learned from our own personal experiences with dependency and from the experience of watching our dear ones fight the same battles that addiction is a cunning and insidious foe. Because, as Jeff would say, “no one plans on becoming an addict”.
And so this is why we are here. Because at Bayshore, we understand that no one plans to walk this dark path, and no one finds their way out of the morass of addiction alone. But we are here to provide the signposts you need to guide the way back to home, to life, and to the future you want and deserve.
Jeff’s journey to discover the answers to the enigma of addiction and recovery led us to create a holistic, personalized, evidence-based, and family-focused program to help end the vicious cycle of drug and alcohol addiction and to restore the hope, health, and healing that the disease of addiction has for too long stolen away.
Bayshore Retreat is the outcome of that long question of finding the answer to lasting recovery. We designed it to be a place of warmth and comfort for those recovering from the physical and emotional pain of addiction. Our tranquil waterfront location in beautiful Destin, Florida brings solace from the instant our clients first step foot on our secluded and peaceful property. The home-like environment means you walk into an inviting foyer, not a lobby.
Once in residence, you will find the tools you need to begin rebuilding your healthy, dependency-free life, everything you need to find yourself and your happiness again. At Bayshore Retreat, our mission, purpose, and commitment are to help our clients rediscover themselves, regain their health, and remediate the influences that precipitated the rise of their alcohol or drug addiction. We know that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to recovery, and that is why we take pride in partnering with each client to discover what works and what doesn’t, using our own professional training and expertise in evidence-based care to light the way. We never have more than six clients in residence at a time in order to ensure that every client we serve receives the exceptional one-on-one care they expect and deserve.
At Bayshore, clients receive best-in-class care from our multidisciplinary team of experts. Our highly trained and eminently experienced team of professionals and support staff are uniquely qualified to provide comprehensive, customized, whole-person drug and alcohol treatment that is second to none. And that is why Bayshore Retreat is widely acclaimed for providing addiction recovery care that truly serves to support our client’s healing in body, mind, and spirit.
For our Bayshore family, there is no greater reward or satisfaction than the knowledge that we’ve helped our clients achieve peace, health, and happiness, free of the bonds of addiction. We understand their desire to have a better life. We have been there ourselves, and that is why we give our all, our time, our expertise, our effort, our entire heart and soul, to help them make that dream of a better life a reality.
