Learning how to make the right dietary choices is key to developing a healthy lifestyle. All clients meet with the Crossroads Antigua nutritionist to assess their nutritional needs. Our nutritionist and culinary staff work together with our clients to help them achieve balance through nutrition.

Massage Therapy

The use of massage therapy is particularly ideal during the detoxification process and assists clients with symptoms of sleeplessness, anxiety and muscle discomfort.


Yoga is a system of exercise, breathing and meditation, with the goal of achieving harmony in body, mind and spirit. We have found that a yoga practice helps bring the body to a state that is receptive to healing and rejuvenation.

Auricular Acupuncture

Acupuncture has many benefits, including assisting with detoxification, anxiety, sleeplessness and in helping clients to better experience the body, mind and spirit connection.

Spiritual Development

Our spiritual counselor is available to meet with clients to provide additional guidance on recovery and to act as a gentle facilitator on the spiritual aspects of 12 Step programming.

Individual and Group Therapy

Our therapists are trained in evidence-based treatments for addiction and co-occurring disorders. We utilize 12 Step work, conventional therapies, experiential therapy, art therapy and trauma work, as well as adjunctive holistic groups such as exercise, aquatics, acupuncture, massage and yoga.

Trauma Therapy

Clients participate in two extensive didactics on the nature and treatment of trauma. For those individuals who need more intensive work, individualized treatment plans can be designed to begin the healing and recovery process.

Experiential Therapy

We encourage off-site volunteer opportunities, supervised excursions and AA meetings for our clients to relearn basic social experiences in the real world, while still receiving safe and sound therapeutic support.

Holistic Approach to Pain Management

Crossroads offers a holistic approach to pain management for clients who are recovering from addiction. The program includes experiential therapies and a therapeutic team that works with clients to create a customized program to address their physical limitations and needs. By taking a comprehensive approach to pain management, Crossroads can help clients find long-term relief from their symptoms while also supporting their recovery journey.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Skills training in cognitive restructuring is essential to help clients recognize and change negative thoughts that lead to catastrophic feelings and extreme destructive behaviors.

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention

Mindfulness, through the practice of meditation, enhances self-acceptance and compassion, present-centered awareness, psychological flexibility and gratefulness. These are key components of a healthy and well-grounded recovery.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Our therapists assist individuals in developing greater psychological flexibility and reconnecting with their values in recovery. We use these values to help clients commit to re-engaging in their lives in a more meaningful and productive way.

Seaside Therapy
