Our house is
Your health is of the utmost importance - inside and out.
We provide nutritional guidance twice a month with a registered and licensed Dietitian and Nutritionist with a Master’s Degree in Public Health. She has the philosophy of providing education, teaching and counseling in all areas related to nutrition: substance abuse, psychiatric disorders, weight management, chronic disease risk reduction, health promotion and wellness, sports nutrition, pediatrics, eating disorders, and local and national presentations.
We greatly encourage and support enjoying yourself, too.
On weekends, clients enjoy Genesis House approved outings. Picnics, movies and beach fun are common. Learning how to enjoy life clean and sober is an important part of treatment at Genesis. Yoga is offered three times a week, along with meditation. There is a small massage room where a licensed massage therapist works on clients who need that healing energy. Basketball courts are located on the property. The swimming pool is available to clients who want sun and to relax while not in therapy.
To bring or not to bring.
Genesis House recommends that clients bring about ten to fourteen days of varied clothing, keeping in mind Florida’s tropical climate. We have laundry machines available for all clients to wash their clothes while they are with us and the facility provides laundry detergent.
Visit your loved ones during their stay.
Genesis House recognizes the importance family members and friends bring to the recovery process while in treatment. Support from loved ones can be vital in early recovery and is encouraged if appropriate to the needs of the client. Visitation usually occurs on Sundays between the hours of 10:00am and 2:00pm, once the client has completed his or her initial one-week blackout period.
