Holistic Addiction Treatment in Colorado
What is Holistic Addiction Treatment?
Holistic treatment is not about quick and simple remedies. True holistic care involves an individual entering into a professional care setting that provides guidance from trained therapists. From there, traditional types of therapy for addiction will be used in conjunction with complementary or alternative holistic treatments.
What does Holistic Mean?
The word holistic in itself means to treat an individual as a whole, rather than only treating diagnosis and symptoms of an addiction disorder. This prevents the person from being viewed as an addict, instead being seen as one who requires mental, physical and spiritual balance restoration.
An holistic approach takes a stance in an individual’s personal needs, strengths, beliefs and preferences. This approach allows oneself to positively change the way they view themselves in the world, which in return empowers one to grab better hold of the struggles of addiction. Some of the connections that are made through holistic treatment may allow an individual to seek a better balance in their mind, body, and soul.
How Can Holistic Addiction Treatment Help?
There are 4 main areas in an individuals life that holistic treatment can greatly affect. They include:
Recreation & Adventure
Engaging activities help teach important life skills, and encourages one to identify positive substitutes for leisure time.
Exercise, Nutrition & Relaxation
This area demonstrates the importance of a healthy lifestyle. A healthy balance of these three helps promote long term recovery and optimal health.
Spiritual & Religious Practices
Regardless of beliefs, healing of the soul can also be thought of as one’s emotional well-being. Connecting with a “higher power” can help establish a sense of connection to the world, and individual purpose.
Specific Therapy Style
The journey through holistic treatment allows one to determine the types of therapy that best suite one’s needs and preferences.
HOLISTIC EFFECTS IN ADDICTION TREATMENT
Complimenting traditional therapy with various holistic approaches have a positive effect on individuals who are seeking addiction recovery.
BETTER ENGAGEMENT IN TREATMENT
The holistic approach can help with stressors throughout a potentially emotional recovery.
PERSONAL HABIT DEVELOPMENT
Better routines in exercise, relaxation, and nutrition help replace old negative habits with ones that promote long term recovery.
CREATIVE THERAPEUTIC CONNECTIONS
Connecting in traditional individual or group therapy at first might be uncomfortable. Mixing in activities better chances of comfortable vulnerability with a therapist.
NEW LIFE SKILLS
Common addiction triggers such as anger, stress, socializing, or boredom can be replaced with new holistic types of activities learned in recovery.
