At Seabrook House ®, we are committed to providing quality addiction treatment for the physical, emotional and spiritual illness of chemical dependency. Our structured, nurturing programs, along with the principles grounded in the Twelve Step philosophy of recovery, combine to foster the kind of changes necessary for a clean and sober life.
At Seabrook House ® we can provide intervention services. Highly qualified and certified Family Intervention specialists can help you deal with the person, the problem and the elements unique to your personal or professional situation. There are various modes of Family Intervention that each require a certain amount of preparation time but in most cases, Family Intervention results in immediate entry into detox, alcohol rehab, drug rehab or other appropriate treatment setting.
Family Treatment services are also available at Seabrook House ®. Our staff of professionals has extensive experience in working with families. While our approach is couched in family systems theory, we connect with families through compassion and understanding. We even have the facilities and guidance to help you plan an Intervention.
Phase One is a 28 to 35 day residential program not including detox.
Phase Two is a step-down to extended care for men at our transitional living facility in Pennsylvania (PA) or for women at our New Jersey (NJ) rehab center known as Changes4Women. This is a gender specific, sober living environment on the grounds of a luxurious estate. The length of stay is a minimum of 3 months, allowing the patient to apply the tools and skills learned during phase one, but in a “real world” environment that includes open access to outside self help meetings, along with daily group counseling to address relapse triggers and warning signs. For women, Seabrook East offers a minimum 90 day long term rehab program located off site of the main campus at our New Jersey facility.
Phase Three is an outpatient aftercare program consisting of at least 1 x week of therapy for a minimum of 8 months. Our clinical staff embraces the principles and philosophies of various Twelve Step programs throughout all phases of treatment.
Seabrook House ® also believes that the delivery of addiction treatment must be specifically oriented toward the gender, age, sexual orientation, and culture of each patient. Group therapy is provided in a gender-specific setting. Upon admission, every patient has a 2-day orientation with a detox counselor and is oriented to the treatment and standards of the 4 – 5 week treatment program.
Wellness & Complimentary Therapies
EMDR & BRAINSPOTTING: The core of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment involves activating components of traumatic memory or disturbing life event and pairing those with alternating bilateral or dual attention stimulation. This process appears to facilitate the resumption of normal information processing and integration. Brainspotting is a new psychotherapy approach that theorizes that the field of vision can be used to locate eye positions that correlate with relevance to inner neural and emotional experience. After they are located, these eye positions, or Brainspots, may through maintaining eye fixation, lead to a healing and resolution of issues that are held deeply in the non-verbal, non-cognitive areas of the neurophysiology.
EQUINE ASSISTED THERAPY: Equine assisted therapy incorporates horses experientially for emotional growth and learning. It is an experiential modality in which patients learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, and then discussing thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and patterns.
THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE: Therapeutic massage is done in a quiet, serene room using massage techniques which can be given through clothing. The session focuses on the upper body – head, neck, shoulders, back, and arms. The massage session creates a nurturing space where patients can relax and let the soothing touch of massage loosen tense and achy muscles, and calm the nervous system.
Acu-Detox: During the first 24-48 hours of treatment Ear Seeds are used to apply acupressure to acupuncture points on the ear. They are used to reduce physical or emotional symptoms either preexisting or recovery related. The goal is that they help put the body back in balance without using medication. During the second week of treatment acupuncture is offered to points on the ear to help restore balance to the body, relieve pain and encourage the body to heal itself.
ADVENTURE ROPES COURSE: The combination of Low and High Ropes Courses enable participants to practice taking risks as well as develop leadership, communication, problem-solving, and coaching skills.
FITNESS CENTER- The Fitness center’s equipment includes recumbent bikes, elliptical trainers, treadmills, free weights and the Precor Universal Machine. Regular exercise helps to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety as well as improves the quality of sleep.
RECREATION/LEISURE SKILLS GROUP: This group is designed to help patients learn how to incorporate meaningful leisure activities into their daily recovery plan. This group facilitates team building, as well as the development of trust and communication skills.
Drumming Circle: Drumming is a dynamic, interactive experience that produces physiological, psychological and social stimulation that enhances the recovery process and incorporates the 11th Step. Drumming encourages the non-verbal expression of thoughts and feelings.
Yoga: Yoga poses are coordinated with the 12 Steps to help patients practice physical and, subsequently emotional surrender. Through practice, yoga helps patients begin to embody the 11th Step, encouraging them to quiet the mind, and be open to the guidance of their lives, identify a Higher Power and genuinely experience serenity. Yoga helps to unite the mind and body through the practice of linking breath to mindful movement.
MINDFULNESS MEDITATION: Mindfulness is the practice of focusing one’s attention on what is happening in the present moment. This can be helpful for dealing with feelings arising from living in the past or future. Meditation is the discipline of doing this. Mindfulness/meditation groups occur regularly for each primary group.
SLEEP HYGIENE: Sleep difficulties are a common withdrawal symptom. This group reviews the principles and practices of a healthy sleep hygiene protocol that does not involve any pharmacological sleep aids.
STRESS MANAGEMENT: This group uses a combination of didactic presentations and experiential exercises to help patients understand and learn to manage everyday stressors.
