Alternative Treatments for Drug Addiction
At Footprints Beachside Recovery Center, we offer a variety of alternative treatments for substance abuse. We put a strong emphasis on holistic addiction treatment to supplement and ultimately strengthen more traditional addiction therapies.
Yoga for Addiction Treatment
Yoga aims at opening up one’s energy channels, increasing one’s instinct, intuition, inner wisdom, self-awareness, authentic self-esteem, self-identification, and general feeling of intactness and well-being. Not only is the body and nervous system detoxed, yoga also reduces mental stress while strengthening muscles, ligaments and joints. What is left is a healthy, happy, creative, empowered, self-motivated and energized person. Footprints utilizes specific yoga sequences to help accelerate the addiction recovery process.
Equine Therapy for Addiction
Clients that attend our 60 day program will experience equine therapy, a day retreat where clients interact and complete therapeutic exercises with horses hands on with specifically designed activities for emotional and relational growth. Experience this unique equine therapy as you begin your road to recovery with Footprint Beachside Recovery.
Expressive Arts Therapy
Expressive Arts Therapy is the practice of combining the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing and other creative processes to foster deep personal growth, community development, and social change. By integrating the arts processes and allowing one to flow into another, we gain access to our inner resources for healing, clarity, and creativity. The process allows the mind-body-spirit connection to thrive, which is an integral tool in addiction recovery.
Massage Therapy for Addiction Treatment
Feel relaxed, restored, and refreshed with massage therapy integrated with treatment. Massage also helps with overall relaxation by stimulating pressure receptors, allowing people to clear their minds and focus on healing. At Footprints, we also believe that body work such as massage therapy can benefit addiction detox by improving the circulation of blood in your body which will help to flush out toxic substances more quickly. The benefits of a soothing massage are both mental and physical boosting the potential for other therapies in our alcohol & drug treatment programs.
Fitness and Nutrition for Addiction Recovery
At Footprints, we believe exercise and fitness contribute greatly to the recovery of addiction. Often neglected, clients are encouraged to attend the full gym and begin a training regimen. Not only does the physical being improve, but exercise releases the natural endorphins and assists in relieving stress, anxiety, and overcoming addictive cravings. A balanced diet and learning how to benefit the body from more natural approach enhance provide the groundwork for a healthy, drug free lifestyle. Feel and look better while in treatment!
Recreational Therapy Activities for Substance Abuse
In conjunction with an intensive alcohol & drug treatment program, we begin to partake in weekly recreational activities that are available in our scenic beach location. From fishing, paddle boarding, and even beach walks, our clients can partake in enjoyable, sober activities. Outdoor recreational activities are great for the physical, mental & spiritual self. Footprints Beachside Recovery is in Florida and is just steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico, which provides a perfect backdrop for activities aimed to help clients work thorough addiction recovery.
Nature Retreat Days: Outdoor Therapy
Clients and staff alike have the pleasure of partaking in our off site “nature retreat day” monthly. Whether taking in the beauty of one of our surrounding parks in beautiful and sunny Florida, with guided meditation and kayaking, or partaking in a professional ropes course to help clients overcome fears, build teamwork, and improve positive thinking, all facilitated by our expert therapists, nature days are sure to be life changing experiences. Wilderness therapy is a unique experience as clients are challenged both physically & mentally during nature retreat days, which often leads to personal growth.
