  • 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, tech's, and community. The program helped me regain my self-worth and taught me tools on how to live a happy, sober 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.

  • 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 clients 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I 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.

  • I 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 were 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!

  • 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 trusted these people with every fiber of my being. I was sadly mistaken. To them , I am not a human being. It is just about money. And we gave them ALOT of money over a six month period. You would think that would at minimum ensure that I was treated with compassion and dignity. That was not the case.They are good actors, pretending to care. They gave medical misinformation to my family that hurt them deeply . They convincingly create a false sense of community and safety. I hope you will not be as gullible and blind as I was by their fake smiles and supposedly good intentions. Proceed with caution. I have never been treated so poorly by people I trusted. Money talks at this place- even when it's lying.

  • I new 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 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.

  • I was so tired of being sick and not enjoying any aspect of life. I had gotten help in the past but couldn't abstain from alcohol for any length of time. A friend recommended me to Tranquil Shores so I decided to give it a try. At first I was somewhat skeptical that any program could help me but soon after being there, I realized how different it was from the other facilities I had been. The entire staff was professional and I knew they actually cared. The individualized focus on problems belonging to me helped immensely. Through my stay I was able to learn things that have been vital and beneficial to living a healthy and productive life. Words will never express my gratitude for all the staff at Tranquil Shores.

  • I have had the privilege of working with Tranquil Shores on several occasions when I have sent some of my business associates to their program. Their staff is top notch and very professional. Their program was tailored to the individual needs of each of my associates which I believe was a key to their success. I highly recommend this facility.
    I personally know how tranquil shores works, I have witnessed loved ones who ha e gone there. The funny thing is, if you write something negative the next day the staff writes something positive. The thing I’ve noticed about this “rehab” is that the people that run it seem money driven. Also, they preach about 12 steps and forgiveness and I see none of that in the staff. The staff seems angry and frustrated.. things that do not make this a comfortable environment. Sad to say that the facility is prior clients that have still not mastered their own demons. This is my opinion,I’m sure it will be removed sadly.

  • I have known several people who have gone, and right after I see their mugshots for drugs... Sad. This program doesn’t work. It’s too expensive not to at 22,000 a month. They also treat you like children there. Field trips, shopping together, outings like laser tag..The scary part is the staff. Please ask about their credentials and take a look at who is actually “helping” you. I think it is extremely sad that the only thing they want is to make money... they even ask for contributions for their “foundation.” They make that kinda money and want donations!!!!! Explain. Please do not send your loved ones here.. they don’t care.

  • I am seven months sober/clean and truly am living an authentic, joyous new life following my 90 day treatment at Tranquil Shores earlier this year . At 50 years old, my only regret is having not found this place earlier in my life! tremendous place for healing! My family and I researched at least 10 highly accredited facilities throughou the country before calling Tranquil Shores. From my very first interaction by phone it was clear they truly wanted to help me. I was treated with such respect, as an individual and that my treatment would be tailored to me and my depression and addiction issues. Some of the other things that made Tranquil Shores unique: the founder and owner was visible to the clients all throughout my treatment, the quality and depth of the therapies-including the number of individual hours of therapy 1:1 with my therapist was so far above the standard explained by the other treatment facilitates I had had called, the living facilities and the staff present 24/7 were all so loving, caring and truly committed to doing the right thing per client-amazing, life saving and changing experience. If you are feeling like your life is hopeless, that you have no value, that you have lost your voice and no one cares and you cannot stop drinking or using (I am a recovering alcoholic/opioids/cocaine abuser) -PLEASE make one more good decision for yourself and call Tranquil Shores! They will show you how to reclaim yourself and your life!!
