Dual Diagnosis: Treatment In Florida For Co-Occurring Disorders
Tranquil Shores offers executives in Tampa and the surrounding area of southwestern Florida, as well as nation-wide, a specialty service to help them recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Busy executives overwhelmed by the pressures of their jobs can end up turning to drugs and alcohol to try to keep their edge or help relax during time off. Unfortunately, addiction often follows.
Performing at the top of your field while struggling with an addiction is a recipe for disaster. If the stress increases, your performance at work can decrease and the thought of anyone learning your secret could put your job in jeopardy. The stakes get higher every day.
Our beach location will help you feel safe and relaxed. We maintain a 3-to-1 client to counselor ratio to make sure you recieve the attention you deserve. Whether you’re dealing with a co-occurring disorder or substance abuse, Tranquil Shores can help you reclaim your life from addiction.
Why Choose Tranquil Shores for Executive Rehab?
The executive recovery center at Tranquil Shores is a comfortable place to de-stress and reset your life from addiction. We understand the needs and lifestyle of busy business professionals. Executives are normally very driven individuals who need to be challenged in life. Our program gives them that personalized challenge while also teaching them to balance their life. There are many benefits unique to Tranquil Shores that you won’t find anywhere else:
1. Private Recovery Center Where Executives Can De-Stress
Tranquil Shores is a private program nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Boca Ciega Bay on a barrier island off the west coast of Florida that is specialized in helping people recover from drug addiction or misuse. Our staff is also highly-trained in helping individuals reclaim their life from alcohol addiction. Our facilities’ relaxing and peaceful features give busy professionals the chance to recover away from common stressors associated with their job.
The facility features:
- Private accommodations with relaxing water views
- Beach access
- Miles of nature outside your door
2. Time to Conduct Business
At Tranquil Shores, professionals recovering from addiction can de-stress in the calming Gulf breezes while maintaining access with their colleagues back at work at the same time. Our executive treatment program gives the opportunity for people to heal from current life struggles in a real-life setting.
Although clients participating in this program remain in an environment of healing, it’s important that they begin to integrate the techniques they learn here into their professional life. That is why our rehabilitation program for professionals allows you to access electronics to handle pressing work issues. We believe professionals should be allowed the time they need to conduct business without sacrificing their treatment.
For that reason, executives are given additional time during the week to conduct business on their personal electronics. This is on top of the normal personal time with their electronics that is granted to all our other rehabilitation programs. We understand that life does not stop while our clients are in treatment, and this holds more true for busy executives.
3. Individualized Treatment Tailored to the Executive Lifestyle
We treat each client as our personal guest and offer all the compassion and respect successful executives deserve. At the same time, you will have access to the most innovative techniques in addiction recovery in your individualized rehab program. Our treatment approach offers flexibility that adapts to the specific needs of each executive under our care.
The business world is a competitive and stressful place to be day in and day out, and our executive clients find themselves overwhelmed with the everyday stress of their career. This leads them to turn to a substance to relieve that stress. That’s why we tailor our executive recovery program to meet the specific goals and needs of the executive lifestyle. Much of this is focused on stress management. Our clients will learn techniques that they can utilize in their everyday life. We put added attention on:
- Stress management
- Nutrition education
- Other stress management techniques
One of the main elements that assist in our client’s recovery is the personal attention that our counselors can provide. Our small, private treatment facility offers a 3-to-1 client to counselor ratio which allows them to individualize rehab treatment to fit your personal needs. The Tranquil Shores philosophy is to treat the client, not the disease. We are sympathetic to busy executives and understand what drives you to succeed. That’s why our customizable treatment plans are adjusted based on how you learn and any needs that arise.
4. Eyes Toward Your Future
Our executive recovery program is focused on a healthy transition back to your normal life and we are dedicated to helping you find the treatment plan that works for you, whether that be a 30-day or 90-day rehabilitation program. We understand that when rehab is over, you need to go back to that stressful job where you push yourself to achieve more every day. We know you need to be ready to return to that same environment with a new outlook and some new strategies for dealing with the pressures of your executive life.
You will learn strategies at Tranquil Shores for managing work stress without drugs and alcohol that will help you to continue your professional achievements. But we don’t leave you without help. When you complete our executive rehab program, Tranquil Shores provides group therapy to our alumni free of charge. Contact Tranquil Shores to learn more about our commitment to your lasting recovery and any post-care treatment you may require.
Drug Use Among Working Professionals
It’s not hard to understand how working professionals can get caught up in drug and alcohol abuse. And it’s not only those in the medical field who can access drugs; addiction affects all professions and all income levels.
Often the professional pressure increases as you climb the career ladder, and that is when the addiction worsens. Your substance of choice becomes a crutch to get you through the next project. Soon you realize it is what gets you through each day. Success may bring more money and greater status, but it also comes with increased responsibilities.
We can all achieve great things in our jobs or careers. Pressure and stress can come along with that and people need to find an outlet to relieve stress. Drugs and alcohol can be that outlet for some people and it can become a dangerous pattern. It is a short-term fix for stress relief and will make anxiety and stress worse. It also leads to more problems and can jeopardize one’s ability to work effectively.
At Tranquil Shores, we understand the pressures that busy executives face and how easily stress can turn into addiction. We are also familiar with the stigma attached to attending rehab. We provide a safe place for professionals to overcome their addiction and learn healthier ways to handle the stress of their jobs and their lives.

How to Know if You Need Rehab
The daily grind is a lot for anyone to endure with professions to excel at, families to juggle and households to run. While these can all bring joy, a sense of self -worth and satisfaction, they can also be draining. Sometimes the status symbols of success that you worked so hard for turn out to be more than you can handle on your own. When you push yourself too hard, you may develop a pattern of sleep deprivation and energy depletion that is difficult to recover from.
If you have noticed an unhealthy pattern developing in your life there is hope to free yourself of it. You need the comprehensive and integrated help that Tranquil Shores offers, in the calming environment of its Florida rehabilitation center. Treatment is more than detoxification (removing poisons from the body). It also involves a better way of coping with life’s stresses, accepting your limits, working within them, and enjoying the greater and lasting achievements that only a clear mind and confident attitude will provide.
If you’ve fallen into an unhealthy pattern of turning to drugs or alcohol, as so many professionals have, you’re not alone. No one sets out to develop an addiction, but many executives who are driven to achieve look for any advantage they can find. Executive job duties often include networking at cocktail parties or entertaining clients. Alcohol becomes part of your long work day until you can’t seem to get through the day without it. Stimulants you may have experimented with in college can become your only answer to long work weeks and exhausting travel. These habits develop slowly until you realize you have some unhealthy patterns of behavior.
Is Executive Rehab Really Confidential?
Our services are completely confidential and set up to work around your busy schedule. There is no need to tell anyone at work, even your boss, that you are in drug rehab. Our private treatment center does not bill your insurance or create a paper trail that could get back to your employer.
The executive drug and alcohol rehab program at Tranquil Shores is designed to give you the help you need and keep your secret at the same time. The private accommodations at Tranquil Shores are resort-like and furnished with the communication tools you need to stay in touch with your team, if necessary.
Our Integrative Recovery Model (IRM) makes it possible for you to focus on your recovery without losing touch with your co-workers or customers. You can keep your job while you learn better coping mechanisms for dealing with workplace stress than relying on substances. Our counselors are there to debrief you after a stressful interaction with your co-workers and can walk you through some practical tips for de-escalating your stress. You can learn strategies by using these real-world examples for practice.
If the circumstances of your job make it impossible for you to travel to our treatment center in Tampa, Florida, on the sunny shores of Madeira Beach, you could enroll in E-therapy. This is an exclusive feature from Tranquil Shores for busy executives to stay at work and telecommute to therapy.
Our E-therapy program makes the executive rehab program available to you wherever and whenever you need it. Instead of pulling you out of your current situation, we bring you the tools you need for a successful and discrete recovery. Working on your recovery while you continue to hold your job can be a practical solution to your addiction recovery.

Benefits Of Rehab For Successful Executives
Juggling addiction and a job is difficult for anyone. Most people struggling with addiction find it impossible to hold down a job for a long period and end up changing jobs frequently. Some of them even end up unemployed before they get help for their addiction.
You might think that if you’re successful in your job, despite your addiction, there’s no reason to make a change. Addiction is a potentially fatal disease, though, that can eventually ruin your career, your family and everything else that’s important to you. You want to be successful in your job and your life, and there is no room there for addiction. Over time, your addiction will take up more of your time and have negative impacts on your health.
If you’re making good business decisions now, imagine how much better it would be if you were not being held hostage by a substance. With a clear head and a clean conscience, you could excel even further in your career or finish your work by the end of the day and get home to be with your family.
Keeping the secret of your addiction adds stress to your life. If you were free of that addiction, you could give up the struggle to continue to hide your habit. You could relax and enjoy a healthier, happier lifestyle.
The advantages of living a healthy and sober life are endless, and you will see that once you get into rehab.
Whether you’re doing a short-term or 90-day treatment, finding the time to do this now could save you a lot of time and trouble down the road.
