No one treatment plan is one size fits all. Addiction manifests in different ways for different people and each person needs a personalized approach in order to achieve and maintain a sober life. With that, what works for one person may not work for another. Access to an array of treatment options from medication to yoga is best to help create the most well-rounded and personalized holistic addiction treatment plan for each individual person.
What is a Holistic Drug Rehab Plan?
Holistic drug and alcohol addiction treatment is when alternative treatment methods are used in conjunction with traditional treatment methods. Traditional methods often include medication and therapy with a psychiatrist or psychologist, whereas alternative methods may include yoga, acupuncture and more.
Alternative Treatment Methods Used at Level Up:
- Chiropractic Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Sound Therapy
Are Holistic Treatment Plans Effective?
When looking into holistic drug rehab programs and techniques, it may be hard to find information on the effectiveness of alternative treatment methods as there have not been many studies completed on the subject and the true effectiveness is unknown.
Holistic treatment plans for drug and alcohol addiction are attractive for people who have tried traditional treatment and relapsed or for people who are otherwise apprehensive of traditional programs. In some cases, the inclusion of alternative therapies can put someone more at ease and increase their willingness to admit themselves to a drug rehab.
The Role of Holistic Treatment in Recovery
Yoga is a practice that requires physical, mental, and spiritual exercise. The physical motion can help expel toxins from the body and progress the detox process naturally. The calming nature of yoga also helps relieve the stress and anxiety associated with recovery, in addition to helping develop new coping mechanisms that will be helpful during and after treatment.
Acupuncture is another alternative method used as a part of a holistic approach. An ancient Chinese art used as a part of health care, acupuncture can also help reduce anxiety and stress associated with drug rehabilitation.
Chiropractic therapy is used during the detox process as it stimulates the flow of bile throughout the body and initiates a natural detox process. Chiropractic adjustments can help with circulation while reducing physical aches, cravings, stress, anxiety, and depression.
A part of chiropractic therapy, massage therapy is commonly used in drug and alcohol detox. According to a study published by the US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health, “Massage shows promise as an adjunct to traditional medical detoxification for alcohol.” as it helps reduce Alcohol Withdrawal Scale scores in the early stages of the detox and reduce respiration in the end phases of detox.
Sound therapy is the use of vibration frequencies to facilitate healing throughout the human body. Commonly used for drug and alcohol detox, clients have experienced lower blood pressure, reduced pain and anxiety, improved heart rate, and increased circulation following sound therapy sessions.
