What is Holistic Recovery and Rehabilitation?brett
You’ve probably heard the term “holistic” before. But what does it mean? And what does the recovery process entail? Here at Artesian, we’re all about holistic recovery and rehabilitation. It’s what we do. So we love to share what you’ll get out of holistic recovery.
What is holistic recovery and rehabilitation?
Holistic medicine means that the focus is not just on the physical healing of the patient, but also on their mind and spirit as well. When taking this approach, the whole individual is treated, not just the addiction. And every aspect of their life is taken into account as well to ensure a more all-around recovery. This means fixing the cause of the addiction, not just alleviating the symptoms.
What is the process?
First comes the detox step to rid the body of any dependency on substances. In holistic treatments, this is done naturally, with no medications to counteract the effects of withdrawal. These methods can include acupuncture, massage and meditation done through yoga sessions. Therapy like this helps individuals learn about and understand why they ever became dependent on drugs or alcohol. Then once they have identified the problem, they will know how to avoid it in the future.
After completing detox, it is very common to continue with therapy. While therapy is used across all rehab techniques, holistic rehabilitation keeps it front and center. Through techniques used in therapy, individuals learn different ways to cope with their cravings. They also learn how to turn negative thoughts into positive ones. This is important as negative thoughts are very common when overcoming addiction. Changing negative thoughts into positive ones can make it easier to overcome the more difficult times during recovery. One method is through visualizations. Through this exercise, individuals learn to put themselves inside a situation to see it from a different point of view. They can then find different ways to handle it and see aspects they might have otherwise overlooked.
