Treatment for addiction can be tailored to your individual needs. The length and type of treatment depend on the severity and duration of the drug or alcohol addiction, the type of drug used, and mental health. Holistic addiction therapy is effective in treating addiction and focuses on healing the mind, body, and spirit.
Holistic therapy is used in treatment to improve a person’s complete wellbeing. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, “Because mental health and physical health are linked, problems in one area can impact the other. At the same time, improving your physical health can also benefit your mental health, and vice versa.”
Going to a treatment program that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit for a complete healing is essential for success in recovery. Drugs and alcohol hijack the brain causing it to lose control of its normal functions. Addiction clouds the mind with toxic substances. It suppresses critical thinking, motor skills, and responsibilities and breaks down a person’s spirit.
In holistic treatment, each patient learns to develop an open mind. Mindfulness helps a person understand where addiction comes from, or what led to the addiction in the first place.
Healing for the body encompasses fitness, nutrition, and balance of awareness and physical connection. Nutritional counseling helps reshape healthy eating habits and filters out toxins with healthy eating.
Spiritual healing anchors us to what makes us human, fallible, and complete in recovery. It keeps us grounded in our beliefs so we can turn to a higher power, which gives us purpose, peace, and security. When the spirit is fed, the mind and body are in harmony for a fulfilling and healthy recovery.
Recovery is a lifelong process. There is no cure for addiction but there is hope in recovery. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, do not be afraid to get help. Get help today so you can enjoy the benefits of sober living. Do not wait. Save a life and get help now. Treatment is available.
