Addiction Therapies

Despite the many efforts to help de-stigmatize addiction treatment, there are still misconceptions about what the treatment process actually looks like. Some think that attending a treatment program means that they will be hospitalized for a period of time. Others may think that they won’t be able to be in touch with their loved ones if they go to rehab. While understandable, these misconceptions could not be farther from the truth. Case in point is Pearl of the Sea Retreat in St. Augustine, FL – formerly a luxury bed and breakfast, offers a wide range of addiction therapy services to ensure you’re healing inside and out as you recover from addiction.

The Value of Healing in Treatment

Different people respond well to different kinds of environments. For example, we find that when professionals are in need of addiction treatment, they do better in a place where they feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Professionals often have high-stress occupations that can contribute to their substance abuse. With the opportunity to unwind a bit, they have more energy to put into the recovery process.

When clients feel at home and well cared for, they can make better progress toward their recovery goals. At Pearl of the Sea Retreat in St. Augustine, FL, we aim to provide relaxing and healing addiction therapy services to help our clients achieve these goals – and more! We believe it is our responsibility to do everything in our power to help our guests find healing and peace during this vulnerable time.

Unique Addiction Therapy Options

Due to our unique location, Pearl of the Sea Retreat offers a variety of immersive addiction therapy services you can’t find elsewhere. Our prime Crescent Beach location on the Intracoastal Waterway in historic St. Augustine allows you to escape to paradise while you focus on healing.

We know that addiction treatment can be hard work. Talk therapy and group sessions can be demanding at times and take a lot of mental, emotional, and spiritual energy. Our clients have access to a range of coastal activities, which we call nature therapy and marine therapy. Coming soon, we will offer outdoor experiential therapies including paddle boarding, boating, dolphin watching, and even surfing. These unique therapeutic activities provide our clients with the chance to pause, recharge, and focus on their needs.

What makes us unique is that we offer standard, traditional therapies that have been proven to help treat addiction and mental health, and dual diagnosis, but in ways that make the process feel refreshing. For example, we offer talk therapy in our boathouse, where clients can enjoy picturesque views while tackling tough topics.

Our goal is to make all of our clients feel relaxed and uniquely cared for. This way, they feel more comfortable dealing with the issues that led them down the road to addiction. The addiction therapies that we provide include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Individual psychotherapy
  • Group counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Trauma therapies (such as EMDR and exposure therapy)
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT)
  • Contingency management
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

These evidence-based therapies provide our clients with the direct, purposeful therapy that they need to uncover the root causes of their most pressing issues. Our therapeutic team of professionals works closely with each client, ensuring that they are receiving an experience that meets their recovery needs.
