Blu by the Sea - Hope and a Solution

"THERE IS HOPE AND A SOLUTION" A NON-12 step revolutionary holistic treatment program designed to permanently overcome substance abuse and restore an individual to their former self. The Program at Blu by the Sea has been proven over the past 10 plus years to be the most effective treatment option for those struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders. The program has over 600 successful graduates. Developed by a mother and father, who after four unsuccessful attempts at helping their own son recover through traditional 12 step programs, knew there had to be a better way. They worked tirelessly to form a holistic, alternative treatment program with more of a hands on, 1 on 1 therapeutic approach. The cornerstone is the amount of time clients get to spend with the professionals in 1 on 1 therapy. The program is ever evolving at Blu by the Sea; only the latest techniques and clinically proven methods are utilized, making the program an industry leader in the area of substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. The team of medical and clinical professionals range from a psychiatrist, a medical doctor specializing in addiction, & masters level therapists.
