  • No Place is Like Tranquil Shores
    Chad offered a safe place for me to recover and for that, I will always be grateful. Life is so much better after recovery. I'm in better spirits. I can conquer almost anything on my own. And I couldn't be happier. There are a lot of places out there but no place is like Tranquil Shores.

  • Saved My Life
    My experience at Tranquil Shores was unlike anything I've experienced before. I wasn't anticipating it to be that way. It was something I was scared of and had never been through before. The people cared about me and the people took me under their wing. They not only saved my life, but they saved my brothers and in a way my sons.

  • Allowed Me to Spread My Wings
    Tranquil Shores is a place with the exact amount of structure and guidelines needed for a treatment center along with the appropriate amount of freedom to allow you to spread your wings! The actual living arrangement is the perfect set up; as it is a condominium complex that does not stand out to the public as being an actual treatment center, but still has the rules and guidelines needed for a sober living environment. The staff at Tranquil Shores is the main reason I came here! Everyone is very happy, positive, and upbeat. 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!

  • Dedicated to Recovery
    Life had handed us a situation we never thought we would be in - a daughter with an addiction. All of our lives were spinning out of control. We found at Tranquil Shores people who were totally dedicated to treating and healing the whole person, physically, emotionally and spiritually. They replaced despair and brokenness with confidence and joy, shame with acceptance and grace, most of all sadness became happiness and Peace. The aftercare /personal coaching program is amazing, there is always a safety net after leaving treatment.

  • Things Really Changed for Me
    I was a client at Tranquil Shores when I was 23 years old. I had been a functioning addict for quite some time. I had this act going like I was this great student and daughter and I was absolutely dying inside. Luckily I was blessed with amazing parents that talked to Chad Johnson and they figured out a way to get me to Tranquil Shores. I started doing what I was told to do in treatment finally and asking for help and that's when things really changed for me.

  • Life-Changing Experience
    My time at Tranquil Shores has been a life-changing experience that I will cherish for the rest of my life. The counselors at Tranquil Shores have the insight to truly figure out what is really behind your addictions. Tranquil Shores has given me and my family a second chance at a lifetime of memories and experiences that I would not have if I continued on the path that I was on.

  • Exemplary in Every Way
    I found Tranquil Shores without a reference or hearing of it through word of mouth. I truly had no idea what I was getting into but I went with my instincts and I am so relieved I did. I haven't been known for making the wisest choices but choosing Tranquil Shores was the decision that has changed the course of my life in the most beautiful way. I was treated with amazing compassion, professionalism, and educated care. The program gave me an understanding of what created my addiction as well as the tools to challenge the self-destructive compulsions that were keeping me from leading a healthy and happy life. The leadership at Tranquil Shores is exemplary in every way. Tranquil Shores gave me a future full of possibilities and enlightenment. You won't regret just calling.

  • Simply Amazing!
    Simply amazing! I was so broken, an alcoholic of the worse kind. They were kind, respectful, and supportive. They truly cared about me, when I didn't care if I lived or died. I call this place magical, it saved my life! The program I was in had the structure I needed and gave me just enough freedom for me to feel human and not locked up. They got to the root of my disease and gave me the knowledge I needed to get and stay sober. I owe them my life!!

  • I Owe My Sobriety to Tranquil Shores
    When I got to Tranquil Shores I was very nervous to face the unknown but within the first hour upon arrival, I knew I was in the right place. I've never felt so accepted and loved by complete strangers. The compassion and support each member of the team displayed was impeccable. Every commitment made by the staff was followed through 100%. Today I am sober and happy beyond my wildest dreams and I owe it all to Tranquil Shores.

  • Life-Changing Experience
    I came to Tranquil Shores on an ultimatum and I thought I’d just stay 30 days. Within my first few days, I came to realize that Tranquil Shores had something special to offer and I wanted it. I wanted to stay as long as possible to absorb all that I could from this life-changing program. The clinicians and techs are caring, understanding, and provide a safe environment in which tools for happy and healthy living are taught and re-enforced on a daily basis. I will forever be grateful to this program for the opportunity it has given me to write a whole new story for myself.

  • Absolutely Incredible
    I am so grateful that I was able to stay 90 days at Tranquil Shores. I have learned so much about myself and my disease. I came in completely broken spiritually, physically, and mentally. I can look in the mirror today with love for myself and the serenity I have searched for all my life. Thank you to every person at Tranquil Shores for being absolutely incredible. I would send my own family members there.

  • Highly Recommend
    Beautiful property, great location, and highly skilled staff. From the behavioral techs, the therapists, and the administration staff, they could not do a better job with client care!

  • Professional Expertise and Personal, Genuine Love
    There aren't sufficient words to express my gratitude to Tranquil Shores. Every person that works at this facility was an integral part of my recovery and is a fantastic reflection of vision for an amazing recovery community. I went to rehab because I had no other recourse... I knew my life was miserable and I was pretty sure drugs were the reason, but I couldn't stop. I had destroyed my business, my reputation, and was close to losing my family. I thought about suicide daily. Tranquil Shores gave me hope, love, and the tools to rebuild my life. I was a complete monster during my first few weeks in rehab-and the staff and clients loved me and helped me every step of the way!! This facility provides professional expertise and personal, genuine love. I am forever grateful and the fantastic Tranquil Shores community!!

  • Excellent Quality of Care
    My friend had struggled with alcohol addiction and mental health issues for years. He agreed to go to Tranquil Shores and it was the best decision he ever made. The quality of care he received there was excellent. The psychiatrists and therapists were so well equipped with providing him the therapy and tools he needed to maintain his sobriety for the long term.

  • This Place Is Truly Magical
    From the very first call I made to Tranquil Shores I was treated with respect and compassion. I knew immediately this was a special place. I struggled with my alcoholism for years and thought I was beyond help. They brought me in, treated me with respect and dignity, nurtured, and cared for me, and taught me how to live a healthy life of recovery. I have been living a sober, fulfilling life since October of 2011. All because of the people who work there and put their heart and soul into what they do for others. This place is truly magical.

  • 5 Stars!!!
    My experience with Tranquil Shores was truly life-changing. I walked through the gates of the residential property and was blown away by the living area's and common space, the tech's were fantastic and that was my impression on the first day. The counselors are amazing, really every single member of the Tranquil Shores family had a significant role in my journey. I initially went into treatment with the thought of staying for 30 days but stayed for 90. It was the best experience of my life. Could be yours as well. 5 Stars!!!

  • Exceptional Staff
    I am reminded on a daily basis of how caring the staff is at Tranquil Shores. Not only does the staff have exceptional training in their fields, but many have also been through a lot of the same struggles as the clientele are experiencing. Having been there themselves, helps the staff relate and work through some of the same problems the clients are experiencing. With the location being on the beach, it truly helps the clients relax so they are able to do thorough work on themselves. Anyone in the hands of this amazing staff will surely feel the healing power of the program.

  • A New Life Worth Living
    At Tranquil Shores I found a new beginning, a new life worth living. Tranquil shores provided excellent client care, exceptional therapist, and wonderful administrative staff. All I had to come with was a willingness to try a new way of life.

  • Best Help Possible
    I had struggled with addiction for several years and have been to several rehabilitation facilities. Tranquil Shores is an exceptional facility that has helped me to get my life back on track for good. The staff is incredible, the counselors are second to none, and the Owner/CEO Chad cares more about the well-being of the client than he does a profit. This is a center that walks the path of recovery with the client long after they leave treatment. The staff to client ration is about 1:1. There is an alumni group that meets several times a month as well as a new transitional living facility on the beach for clients that have successfully completed the program only, eliminating anyone who is not serious about their recovery.

    I had an amazing counselor named Amanda T. who helped me to work through the shame that had plagued me for so long. EMDR Specialist Lisa G. worked with me to dig deep into the past and uncover traumatic events which may have caused me to turn to drugs and alcohol as a solution. Another unique part of the TS program was the role-play therapy called "Experiential Therapy", in which the clients work together with a team of counselors to reenact different life situations. This was probably the most powerful treatment method I have seen and was very effective.

    The residential property is located right on the beach and has a pool, BBQ, and volleyball net. The two-bedroom apartments are clean and comfortable. There are flat-screen TV's in each unit and central air (important in the summer). We have a fun community event on Saturdays and have a great time working together as a community.

    I have been here at Tranquil Shores for almost 9 months and my life has changed drastically. The most amazing part of my life today is that I have been given hope and the confidence I need to continue the journey of recovery. I have let go of shame and guilt, depression has subsided, and anxiety is at a minimum. I have the tools necessary to handle life's "ups and downs". I was desperate for a solution and Tranquil Shores put me on the right path. I am taking the time to write this review because I feel that it is my responsibility to help others in finding the best help possible. Thank you Chad and TS Staff.

  • They Saved My Life
    I have struggled with addiction for years, I was ready to make a change in my life but I didn't know how or where to start. Tranquil Shores took me in and gave me the tools I needed to change my life. The one on one counseling and staff treated me great, and they saved my life. Thank you so much.

  • Miracles Happen at Tranquil Shores.
    As a successful female executive, I had experienced many "1st's" & "youngest" achievements. I had raised two successful children that were happy in their lives. I had all the trappings that "successful" brings you. I thought I was strong, invincible even.

    Then a series of life events sucker punched me and also removed scabs from other events in the past. I was haunted and consumed. I became a "functional" alcoholic. Ha! - a contradiction in terms. And then I dissolved into a broken, hopeless alcoholic. I found my way to Tranquil Shores. Still in executive mode, I arrived with a list of objectives. I was going to tackle this problem like I did any other. I am sure my counselor must have chuckled to herself. Except my way hadn't worked very well. I learned to ask the question "how is that working for you?"

    Instead of my checklist of issues, Tranquil Shores saved me and helped me discover my humanity. Instead of scabs over my feelings and hurts, Tranquil Shores helped me completely heal. My alcoholism then just became a symptom that developed from my underlying pain. Once healed, I found the peace and serenity that had always eluded me during my frenzied, competitive lifestyle. My life's views changed. The internal messaging that I told myself became loving and gentle.

    My entire life changed in 90 days. At Tranquil Shores, they created an individual program for me that got to issues I wasn't aware of and certainly hadn't included on my initial list. The staff is amazing. Both clinical and property staff are uniquely qualified to provide support and healing for each client. They will always be in my heart as angels sent for me.

  • Excellent
    When I got to Tranquil Shores, I was greeted by a warm and welcoming staff. The program gave me structured living coupled with expert counseling that got to the underlying issues of my addiction. I was given a blueprint on how I can lead a successful, meaningful life. It's been 2 years I can say the void inside is filled and I'm able to lead a happy life, substance-free.

  • Everyone Cares
    Tranquil Shores is unlike any other place. 27 hours of intensive therapy a week. Intensive approach to mind, body, and spirit. They don't treat you like another head earning a dollar. You're an individual and they are sincerely invested in wanting you to recover and grow. They have family groups. It's amazing and it changed my life. Every single counselor and tech cared, that's truly the difference.

  • Helps You Battle Addiction
    After extensive research into recovery facilities, I chose Tranquil Shores. The cleanliness of the environment, daily structure, and one of one therapy helped me to start fighting the disease of addiction. I was able to learn tools in order to be successful with my recovery and also that I'm stronger than I've ever given myself credit for.

  • Addiction & Mental Health
    The reason I chose Tranquil Shores was because they not only deal with addiction but mental health as well. Intensive work on my issues is what lead to the desired results and helped reign in my attitude. I was also able to learn a ton of coping mechanisms that will help with my success.

  • Helped Me Regain My Self-Worth
    I knew that I had lost control of my drinking and had become powerless against it. After I did an abundance of research and hours of phone calls, I chose Tranquil Shores. I was given excellent support from the counselors, staff, techs, and community. The program helped me regain my self-worth and taught me tools on how to live a happy, sober life.

  • 100% the Best Place To Go
    I can't express enough how much Tranquil Shores helped me. I went in beaten down from drugs and alcohol. They took great care of me while I was going through withdrawals. Once I got to the other side and felt better, the therapists were fantastic and uplifting. I would tell anyone that has a problem with alcohol or drugs that this is 100% the best place to go.

    - J.S.

  • Forever Grateful
    Working with Tranquil Shores was successful because I was able to learn how to stay sober and grounded in high-stress situations. I was also taught about my co-dependency and the root of my addiction. Overall, my experience at Tranquil Shores was very positive and I am blessed to have had the opportunity. I will forever be grateful!

  • Extremely Grateful
    I knew nothing about Tranquil Shores when I arrived and when I got there I was angry. But they were able to show me, love, when I was incapable of loving myself. Both the counseling and property staff were incredible. They met every accommodation so I had no excuse to leave. This is a special place and I am extremely grateful for all they've given to me.

  • I Understand What it Means to Be Happy
    had been to treatment and tried to get sober several times but could never make it through a program. I was told to look into Tranquil Shores because it was different from other rehabs I had been to before. They weren't lying...Tranquil Shoes IS different. The counselor's (and all the staff) showed me love and patience even when I wouldn't accept it. Other places I had been promised comprehensive mental health treatment. This was the only place that provided it to me. Similarly, other places promised individualized treatment. Tranquil Shores is the only one where that line isn't used as a cop-out to get you in the door. With their help, I've gotten to a point that was impossible for me to imagine. I no longer need drugs(or alcohol) to feel okay. And more than that, after completing the program I actually have a real understanding of what it means to be happy.

  • Take the First-Step
    Before I went to Tranquil Shores, I had hit rock bottom with alcohol, substance abuse, and life in general. Upon arriving there, I realized that all the staff genuinely cared about my well being. The program works and I can honestly say it has been a wonderful, eye-opening experience. I am 58 and I now feel like I have truly tamed the skeletons I had been keeping my closet. I highly recommend this program to anyone who feels there is no hope and nowhere to turn. You can recover. There is hope for a new life at Tranquil Shores if you are willing to take the first step.

  • I Honor Their Teachings
    Tranquil Shores was able to show me how to love myself when I was an empty vessel. Through amazing therapy and a wonderful community, I was taught so much. I will value and honor all their teachings in my life.

  • Perfect Fit
    Went to Tranquil Shores after having a bad experience with a facility in Philadelphia. I am extremely grateful and blessed that I found it. I was set up with a counselor who was a perfect fit for me and truly cared about my well being. Everyone on staff was willing to listen and help. There is a definite sense of community there. I not only learned the tools to help my long term sobriety but also ones that can help in all aspects of life. Thank you to everyone there!

  • Saved My Life
    Prior to treatment, I was completely engulfed in my addiction and in denial that I needed help. I was 100% emotionally and spiritually dead. During my time at Tranquil Shores, I was able to find myself and gain a whole new way to live. I now feel complete and worthy. The multiple hours of one on one therapy and small groups played a vital role in my success at Tranquil Shores.

    - K.T.

  • Highly Recommend
    I finally admitted to myself that I couldn't stop drinking without professional help. My husband did a lot of research and believed this was the best place for me to get the help I needed. I now feel better much better mentally and physically. Tranquil Shores gave me the hope and will I needed. I was able to gain confidence and stay sober by using what I learned on a daily basis.

  • Enriched My Life
    Tranquil Shores gave me the ability to not only get sober but to grow emotionally and mentally. They will always be a part of my life because they've enriched it.

  • Excellent
    Tranquil Shores is a small facility with an intimate setting. The client to counselor ratio is low which affords more accurate and tailored treatment planning. Staff is respectful and builds on a client's strengths. All of the above has made my 90 day stay possible. They have not only helped me achieve hope and peace of mind but also restored my faith. I am truly grateful!

    - S.B.

  • Saved My Life
    I was completely broken from my addiction. I had forgotten the joys in life and was unable to see the light that was inside me. I believe that a higher power is what brought me to Tranquil Shores. No other place could have saved me like their program did. I was able to return to my family and career as a sober, confidant, dignified man. Tranquil Shores saved my life....there is no other way to put it.

    - J.P.

  • Whole New Person
    I knew Tranquil Shores was the place for me when I was ready for a change. I now feel like a whole new person. I was able to find myself and learn how to set boundaries. Also able to cope with urges/cravings and have made progress in ending my co-dependency. I’m now able to feel genuine joy and happiness without using drugs.
