Understanding the Benefits of Holistic Treatment

Addiction has likely taken a very tremendous toll on your life. As you seek a path forward to your recovery and wellness, it is very important to understand that healing is not one-dimensional. Lasting recovery requires a lot of caring for your whole self – the body, mind, and spirit. This is the foundation of “holistic” treatment. See how the benefits of holistic treatment can help you in your recovery journey.

What Does It Mean to Treat the Whole Person?

The term “holistic” refers to addressing all aspects of health, not just the isolated symptoms. This contrasts with more traditional treatment models that focus narrowly on the physical symptoms or behaviors without any context. Holistic treatment sees you as a whole human being with your complex interrelated needs on physical, psychological, and social levels. The goal is to restore balance and harmony to your whole system.

Holistic treatment does not replace conventional mental health care, recovery care, therapeutic services, or support groups. It works hand-in-hand with these interventions to encounter the benefits of all. The difference lies in the holistic view of wellness as an interconnection of mind, body, and spirit. This translates into tailored treatment plans that nurture all the facets of your health and well-being simultaneously, taking an all-encompassing approach.

Benefits of Holistic Treatment With Addiction

Understanding the benefits involved with taking a holistic approach to your recovery can help you to truly see and understand why this approach is so important. While there are many different aspects of a holistic recovery approach, these benefits can occur within any aspect of a holistic approach to recovery. Our team at Restoration Recovery encourages you to think about these benefits and see if these would be helpful points for you and your recovery needs. 

Treating the Root Cause

A huge benefit involved with holistic approaches to treatment is that we are helping you to treat the root cause of your addiction, not just the symptoms. Holistic programs take into account the unique factors that contribute to your addiction across biological, environmental, and social realms. This allows your recovery to be tailored to your needs and to address the underlying sources fueling the unhealthy patterns that may have led to addiction in the first place.

Improved Mental Health

Addiction can cause conditions like depression, anxiety, and trauma to worsen for many people. A benefit of a holistic approach is that it can help to stabilize your mood, reduce stress, and empower you to manage triggers and emotions. Having appropriate interventions to manage mental health challenges is a key part of long-term success in recovery.

Improved Physical Health

The short- and long-term effects of substance abuse can damage the vital body systems and functions. Holistic care incorporates nutrition, movement, and many healing modalities to help repair the damage and optimize wellness. There are many benefits of improving your mental health that tie in with the maintenance of your physical health. 

Spiritual Attunement

Addiction leaves many people feeling disconnected, helpless, or without any purpose. Holistic programs nurture spiritual health and inner resources to help you find strength, meaning, and inner peace amidst recovery. Many individuals associate spiritual health with religion, but this is not always the case. Engaging in holistic practices at Restoration Recovery can help you find a spiritual outlet that meets your needs and beliefs in a way that serves you, seeing the benefits of a holistic approach.

Core Components of Holistic Treatment

The core components that we find beneficial to include in a holistic treatment approach include the following:

  • Custom-tailored programming
    • No two people or paths into the addiction are identical. Restorative Recovery and our holistic treatment approach are very adaptable to your unique needs, challenges, lifestyle, and goals. This personal approach provides the best results for your long-term success.
  • Integrative therapies
    • These involve meditation, yoga, art therapy, and music therapy.  
  • Nutrition
    • Providing nutritional education can help you establish eating habits that fuel your body and mind for success.
  • Peer support integration
    • Ongoing participation in a recovery support community helps to sustain the positive momentum. Group therapy is a great way to gain this peer support.
  • Aftercare planning
    • Continuity of care is vital after initial treatment. With step-down and also transitional programs, recovery coaching, support groups, and more, you can be sure you are set up for success after the initial treatment journey. 

How Is This Different From the Benefits of Regular Treatment?

Holistic approaches consider addiction as resulting from an imbalance or disconnection of the mind, body, and spirit. Recovery aims to restore balance and self-awareness. Holistic programs emphasize personal responsibility and active participation in one’s recovery journey. Other approaches are less focused on lifestyle changes that affect the long-term success of sobriety maintenance and your ability to apply what you have gained from treatment to the world outside. The ultimate aims are sustainable, long-term wellness, and a meaningful, purposeful life in recovery – not just abstinence alone. The holistic approaches attempt to facilitate the inner work and lifestyle changes that allow this.
