Nowadays scientists all around the world agree that traditional medicine is just a part of the healing process. This is a fundamental aspect of holistic treatment.
There are medical conditions where medications are not nearly enough to completely heal the individual, such as substance abuse or addiction. Traditional treatments are useful in the first stage of the process, allowing the patients to regain their strength and health while fighting the withdrawal symptoms. Learning to maintain that health is where holistic therapy is needed.
Holistic treatment therapies address not only the disease itself but also the triggers and the psychological factors that contributed to it.
Experiential programs and recreational therapy, along with meditation, motivational speeches, and family therapies are just a few of the useful tools of the holistic approach.
It’s clear that an inpatient rehab center should employ professionals who know about addiction and recovery. What many people don’t realize is that if you only deal with addiction and not the issues accompanying a substance use disorder, you’re not receiving the comprehensive addiction rehab you deserve. Windward Way uses holistic approaches for addiction treatment, and both our alcohol and drug rehab programs incorporate these modalities.
This begs the question—what is it? In a nutshell, holistic substance abuse treatment provides the tools to learn how to manage day-to-day living to prevent a client from flying off the handle and picking up a drink or drug as a “solution” to an uncomfortable situation. The holistic view of addiction is that imbalances create risky situations—holistic treatment therapies can give you the tools to learn how to cope another day without mind-altering substances.
Here is a list of holistic therapies available within Windward Way’s addiction treatment program:
