Growth of Holistic Treatment in Rehabs

Holistic treatment

Holistic treatment for substance abuse focuses on all aspects of the individual. Holistic, by definition; means taking the whole person into account. Aside from treating the physical components of addiction, holistic treatments incorporate the emotional, mental and spiritual needs of the individual, as well.

Addiction is a complex disease that affects body, mind and spirit, often creating a sharp disconnect between these parts of the self. This disassociation between mind, body and spirit creates a fragmented person.  On the other hand, successful recovery from drugs and alcohol strengthens the interconnections between mind, body and spirit.

Evidence-based researched shows holistic treatment is integral to a person’s recovery. There are many benefits to holistic therapy, which teaches individuals how to self-regulate stressors and maintain mindful presence….well being…
