Finding a treatment program that is right for you can seem overwhelming. Treatment programs can be tailored to your specific needs. The length and type of treatment depend on the severity and duration of the drug or alcohol addiction, the type of drug used, and mental health condition.
Holistic therapy focuses on improving the wellbeing of the entire person, not only their substance abuse problems. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, “Because mental health and physical health are linked, problems in one area can impact the other. At the same time, improving your physical health can also benefit your mental health, and vice versa.
Going to a treatment program that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit for a complete healing is powerful for a successful recovery. Drug or alcohol use changes the brain causing it to lose control of its normal functions. The mind becomes clouded with toxic substances, suppressing critical thinking, motor skills, and responsibilities.
Each patient should develop an open mind, which helps to embrace the efficacy of holistic treatments. Mindfulness allows you to understand where addiction comes from, or what led to addiction in the first place.
Healing for the body encompasses fitness, nutrition, and balance of awareness and physical connection. With a clear mind, you will be able to compare the feeling of clarity to a mind controlled by drugs or alcohol. Nutritional counseling helps reshape healthy eating habits and filters out toxins with healthy eating.
Spiritual healing anchors us to what makes us human, fallible, and complete in recovery. It keeps us grounded in our beliefs so we can turn to a higher power, which gives us purpose, peace, and security. When the spirit is fed, the mind and body are in harmony for a fulfilling and healthy recovery.
Recovery is a lifelong process. There is always a risk of relapse and challenges in recovery. Develop a plan to avoid high-risk situations. An effective treatment program will help you prepare for lifestyle changes you need to make for a successful recovery.
