Holistic Addiction Treatment and Therapies
Drug and alcohol addiction can be damaging to you in a number of ways. In order to address certain ailments associated with your addiction, your doctor may recommend some advanced holistic treatment therapies. These services can help to ease any mental or physical pain you may be experiencing.
Regardless of the program you are enrolled in, you may be prescribed holistic therapies that are designed to reduce cravings, help with anxiety or sleeplessness, promote relaxation and/or encourage general wellness.
Some possible therapies include:
Licensed massage therapists can help relieve your pain and suffering using their hands and elbows. Massage therapy, or the application of pressure to your soft tissues and muscles, is designed to relax tension, improve circulation and stimulate healing.
Chiropractors can provide care utilizing the Activator method, which safely and effectively relieves certain types of back pain, headaches, and neck pain. After each Activator session, you may receive cold laser therapy to complement the benefits of chiropractic treatment.
Laser therapy involves focusing a powerful beam of cold light on a specific area of your body, particularly an area where you are experiencing pain. Your body absorbs the light, which triggers a biological reaction in your cells, reducing pain and inflammation, and promoting faster healing.
If you and your doctor decide that acupuncture is right for you, you can choose between two techniques: cupping and traditional. Acupuncture can relieve your withdrawal symptoms, chronic pain, stress and anxiety as you find freedom from addictive substances.
This special type of therapy is also referred to as vibroacoustic therapy and involves gentle vibrations, music and a type of biofeedback called Heart Math. The combination of these techniques can cause you to feel deeply relaxed, mentally and physically. Many patients find that vibroacoustic therapy significantly improves their mood and reduces their drug and alcohol cravings.
Traditional physical therapy includes stretching and therapeutic exercise as a part of your treatment plan. These and other techniques can improve your physical health and mobility, particularly if you’ve endured an injury or experience chronic pain.
Yoga and Tai Chi
Yoga or Tai Chi classes can help you boost your self-esteem and improve your strength, similarly to other exercise routines. However, with yoga and Tai Chi, you can reap the added benefits of establishing a better mind-body-spirit connection.
Nutritionists can provide you with a customized nutrition program, helping you understand which foods, nutrients and supplements will complement detoxification, stimulate healing and enhance your general well-being.
Meditation and Mindfulness Programs
Mindfulness techniques and meditation classes can help you get the most out of addiction treatment. Meditation can improve your ability to cope with stressful situations and promote feelings of calmness and happiness.
