Our Staff

The clinical staff at Free by the Sea is comprised of highly skilled professionals with a combination of over a century of experience in the field of addiction rehabilitation and mental health. We practice an evidence-based approach built on the tried-and-true 12-step recovery model. Clients are treated with compassion, respect, and understanding at all times.

Rather than focus solely on the client’s addictive behavior, our counseling programs are designed to promote healing of the whole person — mind, body, and spirit. This integrated approach allows us to effectively address the addiction while exploring and healing other aspects of life that may have been sacrificed for the addictive behavior. When we heal the whole person, the client is better equipped to return home with the strength they need to pursue a life free from addiction. We limit the number of clients under our care to ensure each person receives the time and attention he or she needs along their journey to recovery. By maintaining a low client-to-counselor ratio, the quality of our service and strength of treatment outcomes are consistently outstanding.
