Heal Your Mind, Body and Spirit with Alternative Holistic Treatment

Heal Your Mind, Body and Spirit with Alternative Holistic Treatment

Addiction places so much stress on the mind, body and spirit, that’s it’s hard to recover from alone. Reputable treatment programs aim at addressing some of the most crucial components to happiness, health and wellbeing through valuable resources, education and support. Recovery should support the whole person – not just one aspect of them. Most of us have struggled with trauma, mental health concerns, and life circumstances that have left us feeling broken at times, and true healing in recovery places love and compassion on those wounds. If you’re considering the many types of treatment options available for addiction recovery, holistic treatment could be a transformational experience.

As the American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) notes, there are many types of holistic treatments that can be used for healing in recovery, such as:

·       Acupuncture

·       Biofeedback

·       Exercise

·       Meditation

·       Yoga

·       And more

In a 2014 review published in the Journal of Human Behavior in the Social Environment, researchers emphasized that holistic approaches are truly humanistic in that they take into account all the areas of our lives that factor into who we are and how addiction has played a role in our lives.

Mindfulness is a major component of holistic treatment and can help individuals discover the core of their psychological suffering as well as healthy coping mechanisms and strategies to healing from this pain. For example, a 2018 review titled, “The Confounding Variable: Working with Shame in Young Adults in a Holistic Treatment Model” emphasized that while trauma and addiction can spark many feelings of shame amongst those in recovery – especially as much stigma surrounds addiction – mindfulness can combat some of those harsh effects. With mindfulness, those in recovery can learn to become more self-aware, which can ultimately lead them to taking on newer thoughts and behavioral patterns that are more conducive for their recovery.
