Tranquil Shores: Your Path to Recovery

Trauma and substance abuse often feed one another. For most, trauma comes first and addiction follows. Usually, people turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with the emotional aftermath that comes with trauma. But substance abuse can cause trauma. From getting in a car crash when under the influence to sexual violence that takes place while intoxicated, many people need help overcoming both trauma and addiction.

We provide holistic, personalized treatment programs targeted at the mind, body, and spirit.

Our trauma-informed counselors understand the vulnerabilities of those going through trauma and provide care in ways that avoid further distress, while giving you an opportunity to participate in treatment fully. Tranquil Shores offers clients with a unique beach location to help them feel safe and relaxed during the rehabilitation process. In addition, our 3:1 client-to-counselor ratio ensures that everyone gets the attention and care they deserve.

Our trained staff is standing by and ready to help 24/7. If you’re ready to reclaim control over your life and put your trauma behind you once and for all, give us a call (727) 888-6623. We can also be reached via our online message form here.

Clinically Proven Trauma Techniques

Tranquil Shores has qualified counselors to work through your traumatic experiences with proven trauma techniques, including but not limited to ART (Accelerated Resolution Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). These techniques are based on eye movements while focusing on a problem to support a client’s recovery. The eye movements, when used in therapy, simulate the eye movements during the rapid eye movement (REM) phase of sleep. They also help to process what has happened with the events of our day.

What to Expect at Tranquil Shores in Florida

Tranquil Shores is a holistic rehab facility that specializes in the dual diagnosis of trauma and addiction. We believe that trauma and addiction disorders are treatable conditions and that recovery can occur with proper treatment.

The aim of our program is to focus on physical, emotional, mental, behavioral, social and spiritual healing through patient-centered care using a combination of individual therapy, group therapy, intensive family therapy and cognitive-behavioral approaches.

The use of education, comprehensive counseling and peer support are ways to teach and reinforce abstinence and prevent relapse in the future. With ongoing support, we move our clients into the productive personal and professional life they once enjoyed. We accomplish this through the collaborative efforts of a highly qualified and specialized multidisciplinary team of counselors, therapists, psychologists, nurses and psychiatrists.

Our approach to treatment can best be described as a holistic experiential treatment. We believe that trauma affects the nervous system. Telling your story in a community setting such as Tranquil Shores versus a medical center setting helps your nervous system cope better with the trauma and lessen the negative feelings and emotions. This also goes a long way in alleviating the need for coping mechanisms such as alcohol and drugs, thus charting a clear path to lifelong sobriety and recovery from trauma.

About Our Program and Personalized Care

We believe that there is no one way to deal with trauma. Everyone is different, and their paths to recovery are also different. That's why we use various techniques and interventions to ensure we initiate a successful recovery process for every person who comes to our rehab center. While at Tranquil Shores, you can expect to participate in various alternative healing methods such as yoga, meditation, acupressure, acupuncture and crystal bowl sound healing.

For us to offer excellent services, we have put in place a client-counselor ratio of 3:1, meaning our counselors will attend to very few clients at any given time. This way, they can give their full attention to clients — allowing them to understand your concerns at an individual level and develop an effective personalized treatment plan that will address your trauma successfully.

From the moment you walk into Tranquil Shores, you will be entering an environment of serenity. Call (727) 888-6623 to get your life on track or to get help for your loved one. You can also reach us online by clicking here.

    Recovery is about the beginning of a new life and not about dwelling on what you might have done in the past. The counseling, along with the spiritual basis for the counseling is second to none!
