Clear your mind

Being in a quiet, secluded environment while in a drug and alcohol rehab center can give many great benefits to people. First and foremost, you will be able to completely relax and clear your mind. Active addiction can cause a lot of negative thoughts, emotions and habits. Being able to step away from this environment and reset is extremely important. Relationships are strained and emotions are at an all-time high, so being able to take some time to collect your thoughts in a serene surrounding can give great comfort. If you’re able to wake up in beautiful surroundings everyday while in treatment, you will be able to better appreciate the world around you and take your recovery more seriously.

Take a vacation for your mind

Let’s face it – active addiction and recovery is not easy. It is one of the hardest – if not the hardest – things that anyone will ever experience in their lives. It is a complete lifestyle change, involving reprogramming the mind and changing everything to become a better version of oneself. All of this work can be very emotionally draining, challenging and uncomfortable.

If you are at a drug and alcohol rehab center in a quiet, secluded environment, it will help take the edge off of all these uncomfortable aspects of treatment. Pinelands is a beautiful drug and alcohol rehab center in NJ conveniently located next to major cities such as Philadelphia and New York City. Being close to home in a big city, but having the luxury of seclusion can help make clients feel more comfortable.

Simply taking a walk or jog outside in a serene environment in New Jersey’s beautiful nature can be a great way to relieve stress. Being able to focus on your breathing, the fresh air, the nature around you and things that are happening in the moment can prove to be very relaxing and therapeutic.

Make time for yourself at a drug and alcohol rehab center

Drug and alcohol rehab is a process that forces people to take a long, hard look in the mirror. Realizing certain aspects about yourself that are surfacing through therapy can be extremely healing. Making the time to spend looking inward at yourself and how you can be the best version of yourself becomes a wonderful experience if you’re in a quiet, serene environment.

Moments of solitude, when intentional, can have profound effects on productivity and creative thinking. You’ll be better able to think things through, make big plans and take the time to appreciate the things and people in your life. Being able to focus on one thing and limiting distractions will better serve you through your recovery process, especially while focusing on therapy in treatment.

The detoxification process in drug and alcohol rehab is also extremely uncomfortable. People experience an array of withdrawal symptoms while detoxing, and it is one of the most feared parts of addiction recovery. We find every way to make sure our clients are completely comfortable during this process, and this includes offering a quiet, serene environment.

You can achieve mindfulness in solitude

Active addiction has a lot of noise, hustle and movement. Whether it is fights with your family, to the never ending search for your next high, or all of the negativity that floats around you – addiction is a very stressful experience. Being able to escape from this prison and find yourself in a quiet, serene environment will give you relief and help you peacefully begin your new journey to recovery.

However, we understand that being alone can be scary for a lot of people suffering from addiction. People are faced to deal with thoughts and emotions that they have suppressed and masked with a high for so long. This can be a scary concept for many people, so being able to handle these thoughts and emotions in a quiet, serene environment will help carry you through it. Our facility is nestled in a beautiful environment, perfect for helping you relax and begin your new life.


Meditation is extremely helpful in drug and alcohol rehab. Setting aside time to sit in peace and quiet and clear your mind will help you manage your stress, keep your anxiety at bay and learn how to handle negative thought patterns. Meditation and mindfulness are best achieved in solitude, and being in a quiet, serene environment will help you achieve just that.

Simply focusing on your breathing, clearing your mind and being able to stay still are great sources of stress relief. You can simply sit in silence, or you can use a guided meditation to help you along if you’re not quite sure what to do. You can start small around 5 minutes a day, and work your way up. On average, people who meditate can enjoy it for anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour a day.
