The Blu By the Sea Addiction Treatment Process

There are four basic steps to addiction treatment. These involve Withdrawal from the drug, reducing and eliminating drug cravings, developing new life skills and creating a plan of action to continue a life free from drugs. Our steps deal with a specific part of addiction in a personal and individual way.

The Four Basic Steps


The first step of addiction treatment at Blu By the Sea begins with a period of drug and alcohol withdrawal . Withdrawal gives the body the opportunity to rid itself of the toxins in a safe, medically-supervised environment. Each patient receives a customized withdrawal program designed by our medical director to treat their individual needs.

Eliminate Cravings

After the withdrawal process, psychologists and therapists work with you to eliminate drug cravings and break the cycle of addiction. Full gym memberships along with personal trainers are used during this phase to gradually decrease the physical craving for drugs and or alcohol in a holistic and healthy manner.

Other Holistic Methods Used Are:

  • Spa Therapy
  • Art Therapy
  • Yoga
  • Beach Therapy
  • Hydro Therapy

One on One Therapy and Support

Once drug cravings are under control, it’s time to learn new life skills to replace old habits that caused or contributed to the addiction. This is done through hands-on experience and one-on-one counseling.

New Life Plan

The final phase of the process is to create an individualized New Life Plan for each client that replaces the drug addiction with healthy alternatives. This plan focuses on new goals and a new purpose in life, free from the control of drugs or alcohol.

The Blu By the Sea Plan

We believe strongly that the most effective addiction treatment is tailored specifically to meet the needs of the individual, the type of therapy selected for them is based on these needs. All therapies we provide are evidence based, meaning each method is scientifically researched and proven to be successful.
