Find Addiction Treatment with People who Truly Care

Alternative Addiction Treatment Therapies 1At Footprints Beachside Recovery Center, our substance abuse treatment program is structured around a holistic approach to addiction. We know that substance use doesn’t just affect someone’s mental, physical, or spiritual state. Addiction takes hold of all three areas, which then interact with one another. In order to heal each area of an individual’s addiction, we offer several alternative addiction treatment therapies for our clients to utilize. Providing holistic addiction treatment activities supplements and strengthens more traditional addiction therapies, like individual or group therapy. Watch us explain our approach in this video:

We believe that offering a broad range of alternative addiction treatment therapies gives our clients the tools they need to thrive in recovery. With personalized treatment plans and trauma-informed care, we work to set our clients up for a successful sobriety journey.

What Are Alternative Addiction Treatment Therapies?

Addiction is a complex disease, which means that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we offer a variety of alternative addiction treatment therapies to support our clients’ long-term recovery.


Yoga therapy aims at opening up one’s energy channels. It can increase one’s instinct, intuition, inner wisdom, self-awareness, authentic self-esteem, and self-identification. Additionally, it provides a general feeling of intactness and well-being. Not only is the body and nervous system detoxed, but yoga also reduces mental stress while strengthening muscles, ligaments, and joints. Many of those who practice yoga are able to transform into healthy, happy, creative, empowered, self-motivated, and energized people. Footprints Beachside Recovery utilizes specific yoga sequences to help accelerate the addiction recovery process. Art Therapy

Expressive art therapy is the practice of combining the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing, and other creative processes. It often can foster deep personal growth, community development, and social change. By integrating artistic techniques and allowing one to flow into another, we gain access to our inner resources for healing, clarity, and creativity. Art therapy for addiction treatment allows the mind-body-spirit connection to thrive, an integral tool in substance abuse treatment. 

Massage Therapy

Feel relaxed, restored, and refreshed with massage therapy for addiction. Massage also provides overall relaxation by stimulating pressure receptors, allowing people to clear their minds and focus on healing. We also believe that the benefits of massage therapy for addiction are vital in the detox process. Your body can flush out toxic substances more quickly by improving blood circulation. Massage therapy during an addiction recovery program helps boost the potential for both mental and physical recovery and can positively impact other therapy methods. 

Fitness and Nutrition

At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we believe nutrition and fitness contribute greatly to the recovery of addiction. It is often difficult to focus on getting the right nutrients and exercise while in the throes of addiction. As such, during treatment, we encourage clients to take advantage of our 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 and anxiety. It can also help the client in overcoming addictive cravings. A balanced diet and learning how to benefit the body is a key part of a holistic addiction treatment approach. It also provides the groundwork for a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. 

Recreational Therapy Activities

In conjunction with an intensive and holistic alcohol and drug treatment program, clients can partake in weekly recreational activities. Most activities are available in our scenic beach location. Our clients can participate in enjoyable, sober activities from fishing, paddle boarding, and even beach walks. Outdoor recreational activities are great for improving the client’s physical, mental, and spiritual self. Footprints Beachside Recovery is in Florida and is just steps away from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. This location provides a perfect backdrop for activities aimed at helping clients work through addiction recovery. 

Equine Therapy

Clients that attend our 60-day treatment program will experience equine therapy. This is a day-long addiction recovery retreat where clients interact and complete therapeutic exercises with horses hands-on. It is a specifically designed activity for emotional and relational growth. Equine therapy for addiction is a unique part of our holistic program as you begin your road to recovery with Footprints Beachside Recovery.

Nature Retreat Days

Clients and staff alike have the pleasure of partaking in our off-site nature retreat day monthly. This may mean taking in the beauty of one of our surrounding parks in beautiful and sunny Florida, with guided meditation and kayaking. Clients may also try a professional ropes course to help them overcome fears, build teamwork, and improve positive thinking. These retreats are facilitated by our expert therapists and are sure to be life-changing experiences. Outdoor and wilderness therapy is a unique experience as clients are challenged both physically and mentally during nature retreat days, which often leads to personal growth.
