“I’m a recent client at Awakenings and I have to say the experience is unlike my preconceptions. From entering it was very apparent that it is a great program with caring staff. The activities, access to exercise, and the outlined learning were all thoughtfully planned to help me focus on my recovery.

This doesn’t mean it was easy, and I can absolutely say that it was worth each moment there. It was that the difficult work on my emotional, mental, and addictions were safe there and that they understood that this time taken to be there was also time from loved ones. I felt very grateful and empowered after my 30 days with them. It has been a gift to get a foundation for sobriety and wellness with them.” Email from 2023 Client, requested to be anonymous.

“I was heard! The program here is amazing. The staff really goes above and beyond. The counselors really care and it shows. Highly recommended.” Bobbie E., December 2020 Patient Satisfaction Survey

“I was living a miserable life; angry, lonely and afraid. I was trapped in a pit of darkness and despair. My drinking was beyond my control. I could see no way out. Awakenings by the Sea answered my cry for help. (Literally, at 1: o’clock in the morning!) Here, I was shown a different path; a new way of living, if I wanted it. If I was willing. The food is too good. I gained weight. The location is beautiful! Yes, it’s by the sea. The staff, each and every one; incredibly gifted and kind, are remarkable examples of “recovery is possible”. Today, I am grateful and happy. I have found a new way of living, free from alcohol. Thank you, Awakenings by the Sea.” Pam M., December 2020 Google Review

“I needed a safe place of refuge to escape my life and the chaos I was going through. I needed a safe place that would hold me when I wanted to explode. I needed a safe place where I could check out of life so I could check in with my heart and soul. I found everything I needed at Awakenings. I found women who were searching to heal from trauma the way I was searching. I found staff that was patient, caring, and nurturing. I found my strength and I found my laugh and I left with the tools I needed to regain control over my life. I highly recommend awakenings to all women looking to recover. I got so much out of the group sessions and various sorts of therapy as well as the one on one time. I was even allowed space and grace when I just couldn’t bring myself to participate in the day. I’ll never forget my time there and I am so thankful for all of the staff. Allison was my counselor and I really felt she had my back and I could talk to her about anything, she had a huge impact on my recovery. I loved participating in Nicole’s groups and how she would take the time to check in with me. Courtney, Donald, and Debbie were fantastic to talk to, always listened so attentively, and were so helpful. John and Fluffy were always so sweet to us girls and knew how to cheer us up and make us laugh. The Debras would always throw a friendly smile. Theresa and Nadine made wonderful food and were very lovely to be around. The house and space are beautiful and the location allows for beach time and sunsets ???? John even took us to participate in a beach cleanup the day after the 4th of July, that made my heart feel good. I’m 18 months sober ???? and I wouldn’t have done it without my time at Awakenings, I know this, I tried to do it on my own for about a year and a half before checking myself in. Living in sobriety is where I plan to stay ❤️” Kristi P., December 2020 Google Review
