For an effective addiction treatment program, choose one that offers both evidence-based and holistic addiction therapy. Evidence-based treatment relies on proven clinical approaches such as talk therapy. This includes cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy. However, to treat the body and soul, you need therapies that help you reconnect with yourself, such as nature therapy, yoga, and meditation, which fall under the umbrella of holistic therapy.
At Compass Recovery, we proudly provide holistic addiction therapy at our treatment center in South Florida. If you or a loved one may benefit from this healing process, reach out to Compass Detox today by calling 855.526.4915 or completing our online form.
Benefits of Holistic Addiction Therapy
Connecting with nature or sitting quietly in contemplation are just two ways that you can practice holistic therapy. There are definite benefits of slowing down and examining your thoughts and feelings through a healthy filter.
Some of the benefits of holistic addiction therapy include:
- Reduce anxiety and depression – Holistic approaches often concentrate on relaxation, deep breathing, and reflection. These coping mechanisms can help you examine your decisions rationally and regain your self-confidence. In turn, you may find that your anxiety and depression levels decrease significantly.
- Connect with nature – Outdoor therapy can lower your body’s cortisol levels, reducing anxiety and stress. Taking a walk in a park, kayaking in a local lake, or sitting outside to meditate for twenty minutes can help you regain the strength you need to resist the temptations of cravings and triggers. It’s free, and you can continue on your own following your detox and recovery.
- Improve physical well-being – By lowering the cortisol levels in the body, you can strengthen your immune system, which has many physical health benefits. Holistic therapy often leads to improved heart health, lower blood pressure, and better physical health overall.
- Exercise and eat right – This might look strange on a list of benefits from therapy. However, building up your body can help make up for some of the deficits it suffered while you were under the influence of illicit substances.
Spending time outdoors can improve your intake of Vitamin D, shown to uplift moods. Besides reducing mental fatigue and boosting creativity, there are many benefits of nature and addiction. So, get back in tune with yourself with this unique treatment approach.
Holistic Therapy Examples
Some holistic therapy programs include meditation and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps you become more aware of your behaviors, surroundings, and feelings. Our mindfulness programs focus on meditation and breathing techniques, including standing, moving, walking, and seated holistic therapies.
Massage therapy, art therapy, and journaling are also ways to boost your creativity while working through the underlying causes of substance abuse. At Compass Detox, our team of licensed counselors helps you learn to decrease your negative feelings of guilt, shame, and pain, so you can begin to see the possibility of a brighter future.
