Seabrook® offers a wide range of addiction treatment services, including detoxification (also known as medical stabilization), individual and group therapy, and education in the biological, social, and spiritual aspects of addiction. Our award-winning recovery program fuses the 12-Step Principles of Recovery with clinically sound treatment methods and complementary therapies. In a homelike setting, clients develop an understanding of their addiction while they are affirmed in love and given the tools and direction to lead a healthier life.
Our residential rehabilitation program consists of a three-phase continuum of care for adults over 18 and includes the three core phases of our well-researched Seabrook Model®.
Phase One: Residential Treatment
28- to 35-day residential program that does not include detox. Detox can be arranged and occurs before phase one begins.
Phase Two: Extended Care for Men & Women
Our gender-specific extended care and sober living quarters are located on the grounds of a luxurious New Jersey estate. Clients stay a minimum of 12 months and participate in outside 12-Step meetings, as well as daily group counseling and relapse prevention planning. Men and women are given a chance to use primary treatment skills in a “real world” environment.
Phase Three: Outpatient Care
Our outpatient aftercare program offers clients therapy once a week for a minimum of eight months. During this time, our clinical staff embraces the principles and philosophies of various 12-Step programs until these principles become an automatic response to addiction triggers and recovery challenges.
Seabrook offers clients conventional and non-traditional addiction treatment to ensure lasting recovery that addresses the physical, emotional and social impact of substance abuse. These include:
- Equine-assisted therapy: Equine-assisted therapy teaches clients to better understand themselves by interacting with horses. As pack animals, horses sense and respond to human feelings and provide a mirror, of sorts, for clients. Equine therapy encourages responsibility, trust-building and constructive processing in the context of a non-judgmental relationship.
- Therapeutic massage: Therapeutic massage is conducted through clothing in a quiet, serene environment. The session focuses on the upper body—head, neck, shoulders, back and arms. Each massage session creates a nurturing space where clients can relax and experience a release of tension and calming of the nervous system.
- EMDR & Brainspotting: EMDR addresses the traumatic wounds that play a role in substance use and addictive disorders. In brainspotting, therapists help clients position their eyes in ways that enable them to target sources of negative emotion.
- Acudetox: Acudetox is an alternative therapy used to balance the body without medication. During the first 24 to 48 hours of treatment, our wellness specialists apply ear seeds at acupressure points in the ear. Ear seeds reduce preexisting or recovery-related physical and emotional symptoms. During the second week of treatment, acupuncture is applied to locations in the ear to encourage continued body balance, pain relief and healing.
- Drumming circle: Drums are dynamic, interactive tools that produce physiological, psychological and social stimulation. Drumming enhances recovery and incorporates the 11th Step of prayer and meditation by encouraging the nonverbal expression of thoughts and feelings.
- Yoga: Yoga poses are coordinated with the 12 Steps, helping patients practice physical and emotional surrender. Through practice, yoga helps patients embody the 11th Step: quieting the mind, being open to guidance, identifying a Higher Power and experiencing serenity. Yoga unites the body and mind by linking breath to mindful movement.
- Mindfulness meditation: Mindfulness groups occur regularly during primary treatment. During mindfulness, an individual focuses their attention on what is happening in the present moment. This process of meditation is a helpful way to deal with the feelings arising from past regret or future worries.
- Sleep hygiene: Sleep problems are common during withdrawal. During sleep hygiene group gatherings, our experienced clinicians educate patients about sleep cycles and teach them healthy practices for improving sleep without the use of pharmacological sleep aids.
- Stress management: Using didactic presentations and experiential exercises, clients learn to manage everyday stressors related to recovery, relationships and other life areas.
- Adventure ropes courses: Seabrook’s high and low ropes courses teach participants to take healthy risks, develop leadership qualities, communicate effectively, coach others and solve problems.
- Fitness center: Routine exercise can reduce stress, alleviate depression and anxiety, and improve sleep quality. Seabrook’s fitness center includes recumbent bikes, elliptical trainers, treadmills, free weights and the Precor Universal Machine.
- Recreation & leisure skills group: Members of this group learn to incorporate meaningful leisure activities into daily recovery. This group also facilitates team building and the development of trust and communication skills.
