Community plays a crucial role here. At Sea Change, we believe that some of the most important results of one’s time here are the friends one makes. Leaving addiction treatment with a network of sober supporters with shared experience can help sustain recovery for a lifetime.
#2 Holistic Therapy
Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects. Other therapies offered:
- Individual Therapy
- Trauma Therapy
- Group Therapy
- Experiential Therapy
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
#3 Adventure/Experiential Therapy
At Sea Change, we believe that after years of receiving artificial joy from substances and escapism, that men must learn to once again take pleasure in nature and authentic experiences. The ocean offers many benefits to the men of Sea Change. Not only is spending time in the ocean a physically invigorating and relaxing experience, but ocean water itself is believed to have many positive health benefits on brain and body. Our Adventure Experiential Therapy Program provides physical exercise, mental relaxation, and spiritual healing.
At Sea Change, jiu-jitsu allows clients to get into action in a way that’s both challenging and cathartic. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is known particularly for its grounded nature and for its real-life physical expression by combining two of meditative styles of the martial arts, judo and original Japanese jiu-jitsu. Sea Change offers jiu-jitsu experiential groups twice a week, helping men find their way forward by focusing on the present moment and getting into action. Jiu-jitsu can be a powerful way to channel addictive tendencies into a positive way of living.
#5 12 Step Introduction
At Sea Change, we believe strongly in the power of the Twelve Steps. Simply put, it works for the men we treat. Learning and working The Steps, attending meetings, and finding a sponsor provides a positive, safe and mindful path to lasting recovery and sobriety. But in addition to The Steps themselves, we also believe that process of participating in Step-based groups provides an important opportunity for clients to interact in a new way with the community at-large. This, in conjunction with medically assisted therapy are the core of our program. Here, we consider attending meetings a privilege, an opportunity to demonstrate respect, and a chance to earn recognition and belonging.
