    Are Holistic Rehabs Effective?

    Holistic rehabs are effective because it treats the whole person as opposed to just the symptoms of addiction. There are five components that encompass holistic healing, the body, the mind, the spirit, the social, and the emotional. All five of these are imperative to the person recovering from addiction for the following reasons: 


    The Body: substance abuse affects the body in several different ways, which can include not being able to sleep, forgetting to eat or eating unhealthy foods, experiencing body aches and pains, and having physical symptoms like headaches, nausea, and vomiting. In teaching one how to take care of their body physically, they are able to help heal and restore balance to the body within recovery.


    • The Mind: substance abuse directly impacts mental faculties and the mind. Various substances can make it difficult to concentrate, speak, focus, and make informed decisions. In rebalancing the mind and promoting better health and well-being in holistic rehab, one becomes more mentally clear in their recovery.
    • The Spirit: Within holistic therapies, the spirit relates to your ability to understand yourself and to relate to the world around you. As one becomes more addicted to substances, one becomes more disconnected from the mind and body. In focusing on the spirit within holistic rehab, one is able to reconnect with self in recovery. 
    • The Social: this involves restoring the social connections you once had with family and friends. Your addiction can directly impact the relationships within your life the most and in taking time to heal and deepen those relationships through holistic methods or family therapy, one has more support and happiness. 

    The Emotional: when you are ready to seek help for your substance abuse, it is equally as important to heal emotionally. It is common for one struggling with addiction to feel guilty and embarrassed about how one behaved, but holistic healing gives you a safe space to reconnect and work through the separation of one being in active addiction and one being in recovery. Holistic therapies help to heal the negative emotions from your addiction.
