5 Unique Addiction Treatment Methods

Different Methods Work for Different People

Family Counseling can be an option for help in recoverySome individuals who would like help with a substance abuse issue are simply not interested in the traditional kinds of treatment plans. They may have biases about them, or they may have tried them before without the results they were hoping for.For those people who would prefer to use an alternative method to recover from addiction, these five unique addiction treatment methods offer some different options:
  1. Holistic Therapy

    Holistic therapy draws from a number of different resources and disciplines to aid in recovery. Nutritional therapy is often included, implementing a healthy eating plan and even intravenous therapies to assist the body in purging the toxins left by substance abuse. Meditation and insightful talk therapy in a group setting as well as one-on-one are often a part of holistic therapy. Gentle exercise, stretching and yoga classes all help clients to repair their bodies and restore health from the inside out.


  2. Family-Inclusive Counseling

    Many people who would like to recover from substance abuse worry that they might experience feelings of solitude and isolation once they enter a traditional treatment program. Often, it was feelings of isolation that caused them to start using the substances in the first place. Family-inclusive counseling can help to alleviate these fears, as family members are allowed and encouraged to participate. This type of treatment program also helps the user and their family to prepare for life outside of the treatment facility; expectations from the client as well as their family members can be negotiated here.


  3. Integral Recovery

    Integral recovery encourages the person recovering from substance abuse to work toward creating a life beyond their addiction that will replace their harmful habits and activities. A zest for living and embracing sobriety is possible if the person is excited about the new life that is waiting for them. Specific strategies are employed so that the recovering person can draw from a well of inner strength and achieve their goals.


  4. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

    Cognitive behavioral therapy assists people in identifying irrational and/or negative thought patterns that can drive addictive behavior. Unhealthy thought patterns are almost always at play in addiction, and cognitive behavioral therapy can help to create new thought and behavior patterns to replace the ones fueling the addiction. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps to raise self-esteem, provides a network of support and instills resourceful thought patterns to help the person cope more effectively.


  5. Spiritual Therapy

    When an addicted person’s faith or spiritual belief system is paramount to them, following a course of spiritual treatment can be the most effective of all options. While science cannot prove or claim specific reasons why spiritual therapy works in helping people to recover, spiritual therapy can and does help many individuals to overcome their addictions.
