Addiction is an all-consuming disease that affects all aspects of an individual’s life, as well as the lives of his or her family members and friends. It only makes sense that the most effective types of drug treatment would involve multidisciplinary approaches that combine conventional therapies with holistic alternatives. Drug rehabilitation centers in Maryland can help patients overcome drug addiction through group therapy, intensive one-on-one therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family therapy, in addition to medications and healthy nutrition.
However, many patients find that when an in-patient drug rehab program combines these traditional therapies with complimentary therapies, the program is more likely to lead to sustainable results. Treating the whole person, rather than just the addiction, may lead to restoration of personal balance, along with enhanced stress management. Some examples of complementary therapies that may be offered at an in-patient drug rehab include acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga, and exercise therapy. Additionally, equine, adventure, and sauna therapy may be available at the most comprehensive and luxurious drug treatment centers.
Acupuncture therapy has been used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine to stimulate specific parts of the body by inserting small needles through the skin. Acupuncture is offered three times per week at our rehab center to help release toxins within the body that cause physical pain and hold emotional trauma.
Nutritional therapy considers the importance of what we put into our bodies to support recovery, health, and happiness. Eating a balanced diet with foods that are highly nutritious will help the body to function optimally, improve energy levels and decrease stress.
Equine therapy is a well-known treatment for those recovering from addiction. Connecting with horses helps promote emotional growth and personal development. While working with horses is a small part of a larger treatment plan, those who do often experience several life-changing benefits.
Meditation for addiction has been a helpful practice for many addicts during their recovery process, as well as a tool to remain sober after rehab has ended. Not only does meditation often introspection, empathy, forgiveness, and healing, but it physically rewires our brains for long-term success.
Sweating is one of the ways in which the body naturally detoxifies itself. Infrared sauna causes the body to warm up from the inside out and helps aid the detox process by releasing toxins that have been stored in the body, as well as boosting the immune system.
Holistic therapies for addiction recovery
The body’s natural systems can produce surprisingly unexpected behavior, and, therefore, conventional medical treatment alone is very unpredictable. Holistic therapies emphasize and prioritize the body as a whole ~ not as individual parts.
