Since drug or alcohol addiction affects all areas of your life, and not just your body, it is natural that you need a treatment program that addresses all those areas. This approach is referred to as holistic rehab. Holistic rehab involves not only overcoming physical addiction, but also addressing factors that have contributed to the addiction.
Here are the most common reasons people prefer a holistic drug rehab.
Treating the Body
To overcome the physical addiction, the body needs to go through detox and withdrawal. Holistic rehabs facilitate weaning off the substance and manage withdrawal. In addition, they also help you repair the damage that the substance may have caused to your body. Your treatment will include learning about healthy eating and practices such as yoga to ease the physical pain and cultivate an overall healthy life.
Treating the Mind
An addiction is never just an addiction. There are several factors at play. Holistic rehab will identify and address those factors through individual and group therapy. This may include treating any psychological factors.
Finally, it is important to treat the person as a whole. Holistic rehab involves formulating an individualized treatment plan for every patient. No two people are the same. This is why your rehab will design a customized program that works best for you.
