Boat Therapy: Experience Healing on the Water 

Learn how to reclaim your life at Transformations by the Gulf Alcohol and Drug Rehab.

At Transformations by the Gulf, we offer boat therapy as one of the ways to help aide in the recovery process. This symbolic experiential therapy allows our patients to break free from the more traditional hospital or housing addiction treatment sessions to experience healing by having fun under the sun.

Who doesn’t love experiencing the sunshine, fresh air, and soothing, rhythmic sounds of the ocean? Connecting with nature by spending time on the water offers a host of healing benefits, including reducing stress, promoting mindfulness, and encouraging deeper, and more meaningful social connections.

Boating therapy combines therapeutic sessions and hands-on, sensory activities on the water, including:

  • Hoisting sails
  • Trimming ropes
  • Tying knots
  • Scrubbing decks

These immersive, hands-on activities help patients relieve stress and overcome challenges. Our boat therapy patients are free to partake in as many or as few activities as they like. The goal of this experiential therapy is to help patients improve mindfulness, learn more about themselves, share thoughts and feelings, overcome fears, and learn new coping strategies they can carry into their everyday lives.
