Holistic Treatment for Addiction Recovery

The physical and mental symptoms of your addiction are the easiest to see and treat. But what about the other aspects of your life that contribute to your overall health and well-being? There’s so much about who you are that can’t always be addressed in traditional treatment modalities.

That’s why we use holistic addiction treatment practices to complement our evidence-based approach and treat you with the empathy and care you deserve. During your time at our luxury addiction treatment facility, you’ll experience holistic treatments like yoga, equine therapy, mindfulness therapy and so much more.

What is Holistic Addiction Treatment?

Think about how your addiction or dual diagnosis disorder has affected your mind and body. From physical health problems to an inability to maintain relationships that matter to you, substance abuse and mental health challenges take away everything that defines who you are.

Holistic addiction treatment practices aim to heal the entire self. In fact, the term “holistic” simply refers to the whole person, focused on helping you improve your overall well-being.

Holistic or alternatives treatments for addiction are non-medical methods to address the physical, emotional, mental and psychological aspects of addiction and mental health conditions. These types of alternative treatments are designed to:

  • Bring balance back into your life
  • Help you get to the bottom of your addiction
  • Learn how to maintain long-term sobriety
  • Find personal satisfaction in addiction treatment

Ultimately, holistic addiction treatment goes beyond just the symptoms of your addiction to help you revitalize your mind, body and spirit.

Is Holistic Treatment for Addiction Effective?

Alternative treatments for addiction are most effective when they supplement evidence-based treatment methods. Alongside evidence-based therapy modalities like individual therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy, holistic treatments like equine therapy or art therapy can draw out the root causes and motivations of your substance abuse.

Holistic treatments for addiction have also been found to:

  • Increase self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Improve nutrition to correct neurochemical imbalances and physical health
  • Decrease stress and anxiety
  • Increase your overall ability to handle addiction treatment
  • Help you feel more at ease and more productive
  • Lower your impulsivity and improve your decision-making
  • Help you be more aware of your thoughts and feelings

Additional research has also shown that alternative treatments can actually help those in treatment enjoy rehab. When you’re relaxed and at ease, you’ll be more receptive to addiction treatment and be more motivated to work on your recovery.
