What Are Alternative Addiction Therapy Programs?

Addiction is a complex disease, meaning there is no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we offer a variety of alternative addiction therapy programs to support our clients’ long-term recovery. The following are holistic therapy programs that we are proud to offer:


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 who practice yoga can 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

Expressive art therapy combines the visual arts, movement, drama, music, writing, and other creative processes. It often fosters profound 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. 

Fitness and Nutrition

At Footprints Beachside Recovery, we believe nutrition and fitness contribute significantly to recovery from addiction. It is often difficult to focus on getting the proper nutrients and exercise while in the throes of addiction. As such, we encourage clients to take advantage of our full gym and begin a training regime during treatment. Not only does the physical being improve, but exercise releases natural endorphins and assists in relieving stress and anxiety. It can also help the client in overcoming addictive cravings. A balanced diet and learning to benefit the body are vital to 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 beach walks. Outdoor recreational activities improve the client’s physical, mental, and spiritual self. Footprints Beachside Recovery is in Florida, just steps 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.
