Holistic Drug Rehab Programs

In Western society, all too often the distinction between medicine and drugs is blurred. Medicine is designed to heal the cause of the symptoms and drugs are prescribed to mask the symptoms. Traditional drug rehab programs use clinical and medical care to address the symptoms of alcohol and drug addiction. More drug rehab programs are beginning to offer holistic therapies in combination with traditional methods, but the practice is not yet widespread. For drug rehab programs who do offer a holistic component, it's important to ensure the therapies are offered by qualified practitioners and not just staff members. A holistic practitioner will read the body's symptoms as indicators that point the way to recovery. Pain then becomes a way to get our attention. Holistic emphasizes listening to and treating the pain, rather than suppressing it. Combined with traditional clinical therapy, the whole person is treated on a mind, body and spirit level.

Characteristics of Holistic Drug Rehab Programs

A holistic drug rehab program is by definition an individualized program. In treating the person as a whole, it is essential to know the history and symptoms of the person being admitted for alcohol or drug treatment. Alcohol and drug addiction is as individual as the person struggling with it. A “one-size-fits-all” approach is not an effective means with which to treat alcohol and drug addiction.

At SouthCoast Recovery, our goal is to combine the 3,000 year-old traditions of Eastern medicine – the basis of most holistic therapies - with the latest techniques in Western medicine to heal the underlying problems that contribute to alcohol and drug abuse. We’ve found this integrative approach to be successful in treating both the cause and the symptoms of alcohol and drug addiction.

SouthCoast Recovery offers detoxification massage therapy and primordial sound meditation to introduce our clients to calming relaxation techniques that helps integrate a mind, body and spirit presence. In addition, we have an on-staff acupuncturist with a Masters in Oriental Medicine to apply the healing benefits of acupuncture and herbal remedies. The World Health Organization (WHO) now recognizes acupuncture as a viable alternative in treating a variety of ailments and disease. In a study conducted by Yale University, results showed that acupuncture increases the success rate of a drug rehab program by 200%. Ear acupuncture, which assists in minimizing detox symptoms and increasing relaxation, is now offered worldwide in drug rehab detox facilities and court-mandated in over 300 drug rehab centers because of its effectiveness.

The Benefit of a Holistic Drug Rehab Program

The benefit of a holistic drug rehab program is individualized treatment. Alcohol and drug addiction is a three-part malady that affects a person on the levels of mind, body and spirit. A holistic drug rehab program is designed to tap into the body's own innate ability to heal itself. Combining holistic therapies with clinical therapy to address any underlying psychological issues that may be contributing to alcohol or drug addiction provides a comprehensive multi-level approach to wellness. Holistic therapies also work to reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and drug addiction, making recovery a more comfortable process.
