Holistic Treatment

Holistic therapy means treating the entire mind, body and spirit rather than just one aspect of the body. Providing a wide variety of therapies such as mind-body therapies, yoga, healthy nutrition, exercise, creative arts therapies, acupuncture and more, Anchor Bay Recovery is able to treat the whole person rather than only a single element of an individual’s symptoms or behaviors. We are focused on achieving balance and healing through changes in diet, thought processes and exercise habits.
At Anchor Bay, treatment is active, not passive. Clients have a direct role in their own healing and the support and accountability of their peers and staff to help them along the way.

Yoga is a technique that uses physical postures and controlled breathing to lengthen and strengthen the spine, increase flexibility, calm the mind, improve concentration, and promote patience. Yoga can also contribute to a greater sense of control in more acute states when experiencing cravings, insomnia, agitation, etc. Regular practice is needed to fully experience these benefits.


Acupuncture is used for the purpose of stimulating healing. This balances the patient’s life force, or chi, which flows through energy meridians. By puncturing strategic points along the patient’s meridians, the traditional acupuncturist aims to balance a person’s natural energy. This light stimulus boosts blood flow and results in a disproportionate release of natural painkillers in the body.

Art Therapy

Art therapy can be a great way for a person to work through the experiences, emotions, and issues that have led to and worsened his addiction. It offers him a safe place to communicate ideas and feelings without using standard conversational methods, and it can therefore be a refreshing change for someone who is looking for something different than standard talk-focused therapy.

Tai Chi

This gentle martial art is well-known for its ability to help people deal better with stress. Tai Chi is often described as a moving meditation. This means that the individual will benefit from many of the benefits of more traditional meditation such as improved mental health. Tai Chi was originally created for personal defense, but it has now become more famous as an art that promotes lifelong physical fitness.


Meditation is often used to enhance spiritual connection and enlightenment. The practice involves quieting the mind and concentrating on a specific thought or idea. Meditation may also reduce the cravings that can trigger a relapse. Calming the mind for a few minutes may provide the distance needed to make a healthy decision about whether to step into that bar or find the nearest AA meeting.

Neurotransmitter Replacement Therapy

Neurotransmitter Replacement Therapy addresses the genetic deficiency of well-being neurotransmitters of the addicted patient. It utilizes specific amino acids and other nutritional supplementation to provide the patient’s brain the building blocks to produce the needed neurotransmitters.  The therapy is commonly used to ease the transition from detox, as well as reduce anxiety and depression.

Adventure-based therapies

Adventure-based therapies are an important part of the curriculum at Anchor Bay Recovery. Adventure activities like rope-courses, kayaking, snorkeling, hiking and cycling are designed to embody lessons and skills that teach individuals how to overcome life’s difficult situations and gain valuable personal insights.
