Addiction takes a toll on a person’s life, health, body, and soul. Your body has been through significant changes and may even be struggling to heal. Your mind may be facing mental health challenges. At Archstone Behavioral Health, we offer an alternative therapy to give you the tools and resources you need to heal fully.
What Is a Holistic Approach to Addiction Treatment?
Holistic therapies are those that are non-medicinal. They are methods and treatment practices that aim to align the body, mind, and spirit by providing a full-body approach. It is an alternative treatment used alongside evidence-based therapies.
There are many types of alternative therapy available. Each can offer a different role in helping a person to overcome addiction. Some of the examples of holistic care include:
- Massage therapy
- Yoga therapy
- Nutritional counseling
- Fitness or exercise therapy
- Spiritual therapy
This type of care is not going to be the only reason you stop using drugs or alcohol. It will be one of the tools that help your body to heal after you start on this path.
What Are the Benefits of an Alternative Therapy?
A holistic approach is important for various reasons. First, it aims to fix many of the challenges that develop during drug addiction. That may include poor nutrition and disease. It may help to reduce or eliminate stress. In some situations, it also helps people to simply build self-worth.
Some of the goals of a holistic approach include diving deeper to learn the real (and often underlying) cause of addiction. It may help to encourage physical fitness, which enables resistance to cravings. You may also notice a significant improvement in your confidence, not just about recovery but also about who you are. Each type of alternative therapy has its own goal and plan; incorporating many of these strategies into your therapy can be rewarding.
