Beach Activities During Addiction Treatment
There are many reasons to choose specific treatment programs. One of the best reasons to select Twilight Recovery Center is that we are located on a beautiful beach in Mexico. This has far more benefits when you are going through recovery than people may think. Consider the following:
- Beaches are often associated with relaxation
- The beach offers a new and beautiful location to explore
- Water can regulate body temperature and promote healing
- Beach activities can be fun and different from normal recovery activities
These and many other reasons are why Twilight Recovery Center has chosen this location for our treatment facility.
The Importance of Relaxation
While typical rehab facilities offer many indoor activities, there is something completely different about being on a beach. Most people view the beach as a relaxed environment. Tropical beaches are seen as even better.
This location is ideal for relaxation. The sights and sounds lend themselves to guided meditation and the general practice of centering oneself. This can be extremely important while going through substance abuse recovery.
Many people ask what the benefits of relaxation are. There are quite a few, but some include:
- Decreased anxiety and depression
- Lower blood pressure
- Pain reduction
- Relaxed muscles
- Decreased respiration rate
- Better sleep patterns
Each of these aspects of relaxation can have wonderful effects on people going through recovery. Considering the amount of stress that comes not only from substance abuse but recovery itself, there are many reasons for relaxation techniques.
With so much time being paid to individual and group therapy, there is a rediscovery of poor decisions, hurt friends, and self-deprecating behavior. However, there is no reason for this to be the center of the treatment process.
There are so many serious aspects to treatment that a person needs time to decompress. That is just another reason why relaxing on a tropical beach can be so enticing to people who need to be in a program.
Studies have shown that when people are in the middle of any period of substance abuse, they are often wound up tight. This can be from trying to hide their addiction, constantly searching for their next fix, or even the physical stress that comes from certain addictions.
Beach Activities and Rehabilitation
Physical activity is something that is missing from many recovery programs. However, a beachside program offers a variety of physical activities for people going through rehab.
At Twilight Recovery Center, you will be escorted to the beach and shown the sheer variety of activities we provide. These include:
- Scuba diving
- Beach walks
- Beach yoga, meditation, and tai chi
These are just a few of the beneficial activities you can experience while at our facility.
Something to note is that these activities are not offered at random. In fact, they each have their own purpose. One example is scuba diving. When a person learns to scuba dive, they are experiencing a new activity that requires dedication.
Scuba diving requires breath control, physical exertion, and concentration. All three of these are helpful to people who have spent too much time neglecting their minds and bodies. Activities like scuba diving are in place to bring people back into society by means of a diverse set of learned skills. They also bring something else that is very important: when done correctly, they bring joy.
Finding Joy in Treatment
There is no rule that says treatment programs need to be sad and depressing. Unfortunately, there are quite a few unsavory topics that need to be discussed, but they should not be the only focus of treatment.
At Twilight Recovery Center, we believe that you are coming to us for the full luxury rehab experience. Due to this fact, it remains our goal to address your issues with all the tools we have at our disposal. One of these tools is the ability to instill the memory of joy in your life.
Joy is a normal human emotion that we are all allowed to experience. It is a core emotion that requires nurturing to reach its full potential. If you do not give yourself opportunities to feel joy, it will remain elusive.
When you visit us, you have one task. That task is to explore your inner self and revive all the best parts of yourself that you may think you have lost. A part of that is learning what brings you comfort and what brings you joy.
Twilight Recovery Center wants to facilitate this process. We want to use every avenue to show you that you deserve joy and to find solace and peace. Our favorite way to do this is through beach-related activities. Your joy is paramount, and we believe you will find it here, in our beautiful beach location.
Many recovery programs offer non-traditional therapies. However, not all of them provide forms of therapy and relaxation in the same place. At Twilight Recovery Center, we have the distinct pleasure of being located on a beautiful beach in Mexico. This allows us a magnificent location for yoga, tai chi, and paddleboarding activities. Patients can try meditation and even basic swimming. The sweet sound of lapping waves allows people to concentrate on healing themselves both mentally and physically. Very few recovery centers can give you a luxury rehab experience. We want you to be comfortable in an effort to keep your mind on what is important: your recovery. Call us today at (888) 414-8183.
