Sea air & salt water are charged with healthy negative ions that builds our body’s capacity to absorb more oxygen. The use of modern technology exposes us to unhealthy free radicals which erodes our body’s natural energy, but when we are by the sea, we feel energized and relaxed at the same time. People with sleep disorders are usually asked to be around the sea as often as possible because it induces good sleep. Even walking barefoot on sand neutralizes the impact of free radicals in our body as sand contains minerals required by humans.

At Oceanside we provide individualized evidence based recovery programs designed to address a client’s current life circumstances and specific underlying problems and issues. While the first and most critical step is to remain abstinent from drugs and alcohol we also know that there are many reasons why people become addicts and alcoholics. Our team of treatment professionals work to properly access each client so they can begin the healing process and gain the tools they need in order to replace their old destructive methods of dulling their pain.
In addition to having a strong 12 step program, we focus more intensely than other treatment programs in working with each clients family to provide them with the therapy and education they will need to support each client when they return home. We know that addiction is an illness that effects family, friends and professional associates so we work throughout each clients stay to educate those closest to them about the disease of addiction.
While structuring daily activities alone can be much more complicated than one would expect, learning to relax, have fun, and achieve a degree of serenity can be near impossible without the acquisition of life skills that a Sober Coach can help a client achieve. Sober Coaching provides around the clock support in helping a client create life skills that were abandoned or never learned in the first place.
Clients work with their coaches to set daily or weekly individualized goals to fit their strengths and challenges based on where they are in their lives. Learned helplessness is stripped away as clients become empowered through enhanced self-esteem and confidence. A Sober Coach works with clients at all levels of recovery, be it in transitional or sober living, residential or outpatient venues, even at their own homes.

It is very important to learn to have fun in sobriety, therefore we schedule many different outings and offer fishing Surfing Kayaking Yoga Or simply a walk on the beach. By offering many different activities each client can develop new interests and decide which activities they enjoy.
