Guidelines for Guests at Kay’s Place

You may be interested in visiting Kay’s Place. Here is some information to get you started on your recovery trip.

Please let me know the exact time and date of your arrival. If we have agreed upon dates for your trip to Florida, it is important that you schedule your trip and confirm your arrival and departure times and dates within a day or two. We cannot hold dates open indefinitely.

Contact me for driving instructions or use Mapquest. My address is 1595 Breese St. NE Palm Bay Florida 32905. My phone number is 321-727-8040. If you are flying, choose the Melbourne airport, Delta Airlines and American Airlines are the only carriers that serve this airport. Transportation by taxi or shuttle from the airport is available.

From one to three people will be scheduled during your visit. In order to achieve an individualized and effective program, a daily plan is developed during the first session of the day. Your input is welcome. Some flexibility is expected but more will be accomplished with adherence to our daily plan. Free time will be scheduled during the day for guests to complete assignments or for rest and relaxation.

Your experience at Kay’s place is an opportunity to stabilize on the food plan, intensify involvement in 12 step programs, develop an appropriate continuing care plan, identify relapse warning signs and barriers to recovery.

You will not be in an inpatient treatment program but a guest in my home. You will be asked to participate in food preparation and clean up and to change bedding on the day of departure. Clean sheets can be found in dresser drawer. We do have a housekeeper who comes in once a week. We do not have maid or maintenance services. Your cooperation is appreciated.

For exercise we walk in the neighborhood, in a nature preserve, on the beach or at the mall where it is cool. Bring your walking shoes. Our health club is available for those who qualify. Bring a bathing suit for pool exercises. Note: if you are over 60, you will need a physician’s permission to use the health club. Contact Kay for a copy of the form needed.

Field trips that include shopping in health food and grocery stores can be included for those who are new to the food plan or who wish to learn to identify appropriate foods for recovery.

Arrange to have abstinent food in your home before departing for Florida so that you will have the food at hand to maintain abstinence after visiting Kay’s Place.

NOTE MEAL TIMES: Meals will not be served at unscheduled times. If you are traveling to Florida during mealtimes, plan and pack an abstinent meal before leaving home. You will be provided one travel meal upon departure.
