Drug and alcohol addiction affect every aspect of an addict’s life. While many people believe that it’s only necessary to treat the physical aspects of addiction, we choose to take a holistic approach to recovery. This holistic approach allows us to help you heal physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Holistic Treatments That Help Heal The Spirit
Here are just three ways we help you rebuild your spiritual health during your recovery from addiction:
While you may not think of yoga as a spiritual activity, many patients find the breathing techniques and stretches to be comforting and relaxing. Yoga allows you to enter a meditative state to relieve stress and promote overall healing. While doing yoga, you can connect with portions of your spirit and mind that may have been forgotten while you were using drugs or alcohol. Experiencing centering, calmness and peace can improve your overall mood.
During prayer you can connect to your higher power and experience a sense of protection, joy and worth. While deep in the throes of addiction, many of our patients have lost touch with their faith. During the recovery process, prayer can serve as a helpful tool in overcoming the struggles of detoxification and withdrawal as well as helping you to maintain your focus on sobriety. Many outpatient treatment programs, such as the twelve-step program, rely on prayer throughout their programs.
One of the most important aspects of our holistic treatment plan is meditation. During meditation, you are able to focus on relaxing and releasing stress and tension as well as connecting with your spirit. Throughout your day, you may be surrounded by negativity or stress whether at work, school or even at home. Meditation is a great way to work through these stressors without turning to drugs or alcohol. One of the greatest benefits of meditation is that it can be done anywhere at any time.
Complete, Whole Body Treatment
While many treatment programs choose to focus solely on the addiction, we strive to treat you completely – mind, body, and spirit. By treating the whole person, we find our patients are better equipped to maintain a sober lifestyle once they have completed treatment. Throughout the course of treatment, you will learn a variety of techniques to cope with daily stress and mental health conditions that can be used whenever they are needed.
