A residential recovery for men

Doc’s Place is a long-term residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Program designed to help men recover from substance abuse and/or alcoholism.

12-Step Philosophy

Our residents attend daily 12-step meetings and practice the principles of the 12-steps in their daily lives through sponsorship and mentorship.


Many of our alumni have made a home for themselves here in the Golden Isles and actively involved in Doc’s Place. Our activities are geared towards building a sense of community between our residents and the alumni that came before them.


Residents are involved in local community projects and maintain the appearance of their respective homes. Our residents are required to work a full-time job to pay their own way through our program following entry.

Our Program

The Doc’s Place Program provides a safe & structured living space for young men who are attempting to recover from drug and alcohol use. Residents of our program are provided with opportunities to address their psychological, spiritual, and physical health daily through structured programming proven to be successful for men in recovery.

Doc’s Place Men’s Residential Recovery Program has been a successful name in the recovery community since 2007 and is known for being integrated in the local community of the Golden Isles. This is a design for living and for those of us lucky enough to surrender it is a way of life that brings us happiness, joy, and freedom. Members of the Doc’s Place Program are surrounded by well established alumni who have found new lives for themselves in recovery. Community is a major role in our program.

The Program Consists Of:

  • Group counseling facilitated by a fully licensed clinician

  • Individual assessment & therapy

  • Family therapy

  • 24/7 on-site staff

  • Structured activities & group learning opportunities dictated by residents

  • Weekly & on-the-spot drug testing

Rules & Guidelines

Residents attend 12-Step meetings, follow the rules and guidelines of Doc’s Place, and have 24/7 accountability through staff, alumni, and senior residents. Doc’s Place offers a work study program where residents are expected to pay their own way by working a full-time job in the local community.

Since 2007, Doc’s Place has been providing long term structured support and therapy to individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction. Over the years there have been many well-established alumni of the program that have found new lives in the area and are an integral part of Doc’s Place. Our alumni give back through sponsorship and mentoring roles, as well as attendance to Doc’s Place group events and activities.

Each resident is viewed as an individual person with individual needs. Our staff meets to review and assess individual needs on a bi-weekly basis. We work as a team to meet those needs on a day-to-day basis so that they may achieve a sober & successful life after leaving Doc’s Place.

Accommodations & Living

Our houses are designed to make a resident feel comfortable and part of a community. Our main location is over 6,200 sq ft & features 5 full suites. Suites consist of a full kitchen, 2 to 3 bedrooms, and at least one full bath. Residents enjoy common areas such as game rooms, shady wrap around porch under live oak trees, fenced private yards, exercise spaces, and living rooms with comfortable home furnishings and TV. Other amenities on our properties include Wi-Fi, Ping-Pong & Pool, use of large outdoor parks across the street, and outdoor BBQ patio.

Doc’s Place is located close to the beach and within walking distance to several waterfronts and downtown areas. Residents have access to kayaks, fishing equipment, surf boards, pickle ball and tennis equipment, and other outdoor equipment to fill leisure time. Resident staff members reside in each facility to maintain compliance with the policy and procedures of the Doc’s Place Program. Chores and other requirements of each facility are general to group home living.

Residents make food choices in Doc’s Place on a weekly basis at each facility and make a shopping list specific to their needs and wants.

I have been watching this program for 10 years and have witnessed inconceivable outcomes in the lives of many men. This is not a hotel or a place to camp out for probation. This is a place that opens the world, with just little bit of willingness.
