In order to avoid the risk of relapse among those who have battled a substance use disorder, a well-rounded and customized treatment and recovery plan should be designed for every person who seeks treatment and wants to achieve lifelong recovery. Even after completing a treatment program, the risk of relapse is high. It’s not easy going back to your everyday life and avoiding the triggers that may have led to your addiction. This is why a holistic therapy approach is so beneficial to helping people better manage their sobriety once they leave a treatment facility.
One size does not fit all, and being able to customize a treatment plan with a variety of therapeutic modalities could be the key to your ultimate success in recovering from a substance use disorder. Contact Palo Verde Wellness at 866.913.4195 today to learn more about holistic therapy.
What Is Holistic Therapy?
Holistic therapy is a three-pronged approach focused on healing a person’s mind, body, and spirit, alongside treating the addiction and its symptoms. In a nutshell, it is a complementary mix of therapeutic approaches. There are so many possible contributing factors and triggers that could have played a part in leading someone to addiction. Utilizing more than just traditional therapy to identify these triggers allows a greater chance of successful and lasting recovery.
Holistic treatment does not mean that medical professionals are not involved. In fact, it is the opposite. It allows people to get the necessary medical and clinical treatment they need right alongside non-traditional experiential therapies so that they get the best of both worlds.
In addition, alternative experiential therapies can be combined to customize your treatment experience further. Holistic therapy options at addiction treatment centers can include:
- Mindfulness meditation or awareness
- Hypnotherapy or guided imagery
- Breath therapy
- Gestalt therapy
- Art therapy
- Music therapy
- Experiential outdoor therapies
When you receive treatment at a treatment facility like Palo Verde wellness, you get the added benefit of being able to take advantage of the ideal surroundings and nature of the picturesque campus in Palm Springs.
