holistic approach to drug addiction treatmentIn our last blog post, we discussed why recovering drug addicts should stay at The Raleigh house for as long as clinically indicated. Today, we’re going to discuss holistic treatment and how it helps with recovery from drug addiction.

At its core, healing is about aligning an imbalance with its natural state of functioning. Holistic healing is quite different than conventional medicine because it considers all aspects of health (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) as one whole. Conventional medicine may treat one aspect of health, but focusing on all of them increases the chance of successful recovery.

Although conventional medicine is part of our program, our holistic approach uses vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more to further aid recovery. Below are the four parts of our holistic treatment program.

Nutrition

What we eat has a remarkable effect on our functioning, mood, and overall quality of life.

Substance abuse depletes vitamins and minerals from our body. This lowers the effectiveness of our immune system and impacts normal functioning.

At The Raleigh House, each person meets with a nutritional therapist, where together they determine a nutrition plan. The recovering addict also receives necessary supplements and amino acids – which can limit mood swings and lessen the severity of withdrawal symptoms – based on their condition.

Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation

Yoga and meditation enhance the benefits gained through individual and group counseling.

Yoga techniques, which incorporate stretching, diaphragmatic breathing, mental and physical unwinding, and reflection, can trigger the body’s relaxation response and have other significant remedial effects. It expands adaptability, quiets the mind, improves the ability to focus, and promotes patience. It can likewise add to a more prominent feeling of self-control during stressful or intense emotional periods in which drug use and relapse are more common.

Regarding mindfulness meditation, many experts believe that it helps people come to terms with their past experiences such as addiction, painful emotions, and even trauma, rather than ignoring them. It also helps rationalize thought patterns to prevent unstable and self-defeating thoughts that could lead to drug use.

Experiential Activities

Experiential activities, which includes art therapy and pro-recovery cooking classes and demonstrations, can be useful during treatment. They offer the chance to discover an internal identity and provide an outlet to express feelings that are difficult to articulate.

By offering the person assistance with self-connection, experiential activities can raise self-esteem and give the recovering addict the chance to establish new interests that addiction once prevented.
