Addicts and alcoholics are as varied in their personal beliefs as everyone else, so it stands to reason that differing treatment methods exist to accommodate those beliefs. Some, after having made the decision to get help, choose not to use drugs and standard therapies to recover, but instead wish for a more encompassing treatment. To that end, holistic rehabs exist to treat the whole mind/body of the individual, using a variety of methods and natural substances to facilitate healing.
What is Holistic Rehab?
What is a holistic treatment for alcohol and drug addiction? Holistic rehab centers operate on the premise that no two addicts are alike. These holistic rehab centers test each individual and take into account what substance they may be withdrawing from, as well as determining what their underlying issues are, so that a complete treatment plan may be implemented. These treatments may include brain scans and other workups to begin assessing damage and what an individual’s needs are. Since holistic treatment approaches stress emotional and spiritual needs in addition to the physical, they include the usual nutritional and physical rebuilding components of most rehabs, but go farther by offering unconventional methods like:
- Full Body Therapeutic Massage
- Art Therapy
- Neuro Linguistic Programming
- and many more
Many of these holistic rehabs also utilize vitamins, minerals, amino acids or even anti-craving natural substances like Ibogaine. The premise is that with each area of the whole addressed, an addict has a much better chance at staying clean. Plus, some feel treating addictions with drugs hinders the body’s cleansing properties, so they choose this natural alternative.
Twelve Step Rehabs vs. Holistic Rehabs
Although some holistic rehabs may use aspects of the Twelve Step methodology, holistic treatment centers are at their core, much different from Twelve Step treatment centers. Holistic centers hold more focus on not only ridding the body of addictive substances and toxins but approaches the nature of the addiction through the newest counseling techniques. What makes holistic substance abuse counselors different? Taking on the responsibility of rebuilding a person from the inside out, offering an individualized alternative to traditional treatment only found in holistic rehabs.
