What Does a Holistic Treatment Program Consist of?
Holistic treatment includes healing the mind, body, and spirit and the therapy that comes along with it. Finding a spiritual connection can be very powerful during the most difficult time in your life and holistic therapists help patients find this connection through different techniques. You can expect to engage in yoga, meditation, biofeedback, and energy therapy to name a few. Each of these methods focuses on internal balance. Holistic therapy for addiction treatment will treat the whole person as opposed to treating the individual symptoms of the addiction. A patient who successfully completes this type of addiction treatment will have the tools needed to handle challenging situations that could compromise their sobriety in the future.
The goal of holistic treatment is to uncover the underlying reasons why a patient turned to drugs in the first place. By healing all aspects of a person during treatment, they are prepared to re-enter the world with a new sense of purpose and outlook in recovery. Adding a holistic therapy method such as meditation into a patient’s daily plan will allow them to grow as a person and find that connection that will be extremely influential once treatment ends.
