Holistic psychotherapy is a therapeutic approach that heals a person by fixing the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit. During addiction treatment, holistic therapy addresses all dysfunctional parts of your life at the same time. In medical practice, holistic treatment means addressing the whole person, and including your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, while factoring in external factors.
Holistic Addiction Treatment
Addiction treatment programs that utilize holistic therapy and treatment methods recognize that you must be healed entirely. This treatment approach provides care throughout all aspects of your being, in order to successfully maintain your recovery.
Substance abuse forces its way into every part of a person’s life. For this reason, addiction must be detoxed from not just the body, but the mind and spirit as well. For example, anxiety can lead to substance abuse which can lead to malnutrition.
Holistic therapy approaches treat you as a complex being in need of healing rather than attempting to separate the addiction and cut it out. Holistic teachings highlight the fact that one issue within your life can lead to concerns in other areas. For example, anxiety can lead to substance abuse which can lead to malnutrition. In order to ensure a successful recovery, treatment must address not only the addiction but the resulting malnutrition and the catalyst of the addiction, anxiety.
Recovery Sensitive Holistic Therapy
Addiction medicine specialists have been treating their patients in a holistic fashion for decades, unlike other doctors. For example, cardiologists write a few prescriptions for people recovering from a heart attack. They do not, however, properly address people in a holistic fashion such as suggesting, tracking, and enforcing:
- Stress management
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Healthy diets
- Regular exercise
