Beachway Therapy Center is one of the nation’s leading alternative rehab centers in Florida. At Beachway, we provide a multi-faceted approach by offering a wide range of natural and alternative therapies to heal your body, mind and spirit.

What Exactly is Alternative Therapy?

Alternative rehab views drug and alcohol addiction as a disease and treats all related aspects of the disease. While some programs place a large emphasis on treating only the symptoms of addiction, many underlying issues go untreated. Many who suffer from substance abuse also have other related issues including mental health problems, high levels of stress and traumatic histories. Alternative therapy aims to address all issues related to substance abuse to enable a full recovery.

Using a combination of proven methods and providing choices for clients opens up many pathways to recovery. At our non-12-step rehab, we offer personalized treatment plans to address your unique issues through programs such as:

  • Faith-based treatment
  • Art, music, fitness, and equine therapy
  • Supportive group and family therapy sessions
  • Individual therapy sessions

A Multi-Faceted Approach to Alternative Rehab in Florida

By offering a multi-faceted and holistic approach to healing, we can help you conquer your addiction, regain control and independence and live a healthier and happier life.

Art Therapy

Art therapy classes are led by professionally trained art therapists who guide you through the creation of art to gain greater awareness and insight about yourself and others. The process of creating art can heal emotional wounds and can be a cathartic and rewarding experience. No matter your level of artistic skill, anyone with a desire to participate can benefit from this form of alternative therapy.

The practice of art therapy is a respected form of psychotherapy and is used in many clinics around the world. Often, those who suffer from drug or alcohol abuse come from troubled homes and feel voiceless or powerless. Art provides patients with a means of self-expression without the need for words. Many people who don’t find success in 12-step programs may find solace in an alternative art therapy program.

Psychotherapy believes that happiness is achieved by being our own unique selves. The goal of psychotherapy is to bring each person closer to his or her authentic or ‘true’ self and to address painful memories. If you’re interested in this specific treatment for addiction speak with one of our admission counselors now by calling 877-284-0353.

Beachway Specializes in the Following Rehab Therapies:

Group therapy. Attending regular group therapy sessions helps recovering addicts to find fellowship, reduce feelings of isolation and promote positive thinking. Group therapy sessions are safe, non-judgmental environments where you can express your feelings and share stories. As a group, you’ll learn about various topics including how to effectively manage stress, identifying personal triggers and basic life skills such as money management.

 Family therapy. Addiction affects everyone, especially your immediate family. Beachway offers family therapy to help improve family dynamics, heal trauma and identify relationship triggers and emotional issues. Having a strong support network at home greatly helps you achieve long-term sobriety.

 One-on-one counseling. Some people may wish for a more private setting to discuss uncomfortable topics. During individual sessions, a counselor can delve deeper into the root causes of your addiction and provide techniques to help cope and manage stress.

 Gender-specific groups. Studies show that men and women have differing needs and concerns when it comes to addiction treatment. Some women may feel more comfortable working with a counselor of the same gender. Gender-specific groups help target the unique needs that men and women face when recovering from substance abuse.

 EMDR. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that helps people heal from emotional distress and symptoms from prior traumatic life experiences. This is done in eight phases, one of which studies the eye movements of the patient when recalling a targeted memory. This type of therapy is proven to be highly effective. The HMO Kaiser Permanente, found that 100% of single-trauma victims and 77% of multiple trauma victims with PTSD were no longer diagnosed with the condition after only six 50-minute sessions.

Relapse Prevention

Once you have completed our alternative detox and rehab programs, our comprehensive Aftercare programs provide you with the skills required and a strong support network to prevent a relapse.

Sober Living Environment

 Sometimes referred to a halfway house, Beachway’s sober living environments provide a safe atmosphere in a quiet neighborhood where you can take the necessary first steps towards re-integrating back to society. An onsite supervisor is available to manage curfew and provide assistance; however you’ll be held accountable for your own actions, are expected to partake in chores with your housemates and may be required to undergo drug and alcohol testing.

Support System

Beachway’s aftercare Support System matches up new patients with a ‘sponsor’ for ongoing emotional support and fellowship. Your assigned sponsor will introduce you to other recovering addicts in the community and be a source of strength for you as you readjust to your daily life.

Alumni Association

Once you’ve completed all of Beachway’s alternative rehab programs, you’ll become part of our Alumni Association. Through weekly support meetings and monthly fun social gatherings, you’ll find a community of fellow alumni who have shared similar experiences and are a source of support, inspiration and advice.
