What We Treat
Holistic treatment for addiction combines traditional treatment and experiential treatment to treat the whole individual. With the current state of increasing overdoses – we need holistic treatment for addiction more than ever.
Substance abuse and addiction is a plague affecting the US.
That’s the truth.
But if we’re to solve it, we shouldn’t treat it as we have in the past. We have to admit we don’t have all the medical answers yet.
There’s no easy solution to addiction or substance dependence. Every person struggling with addiction has their own unique story. Addiction often becomes entwined in many aspects of living, functioning, and thinking.
What is Holistic Treatment?
That’s why, at Discover Recovery, we treat addiction from a “whole person” perspective. This is also known as holistic treatment.
Simply put, a holistic approach to substance abuse is rooted in compassion. It acknowledges how drugs and alcohol affect an entire person and their entire life. We treat the physical symptoms first with Medical Detox, then move forward with stabilization and continuation of care.
Holistic treatment for addiction is effective because it offers treatment for the mind, body, and spirit.
Our Holistic Treatment Program
To treat the mind, we offer support for co-occuring disorders. This used to be called “dual-diagnosis” treatment. It’s simply being able to treat substance use disorders and underlying mental health concerns at the same time. It’s important to address these two issues together because they often feed each other in a vicious cycle. Some mental health issues we have experience with include:
- Manic-depression (bipolar)
- Generalized anxiety
- Social anxiety
Treating the body is also important. Quite often, people living in active addiction neglect themselves. This can make a person physically weak, tired, and unmotivated. Helping the body heal can jump start recovery as strength and energy return. At Discover Recovery, you’ll enjoy services and activities such as:
- Chef prepared, balanced meals
- Outdoor activities – hiking, visiting the beach, & more.
Spiritual & Emotional Recovery
Healing the spirit is one of the most important acts for lasting recovery from drugs and alcohol. Successfully treating the tendency to abuse substances involves identifying the root causes of the problem. Often, addiction stems from underlying emotional pain. Our goal is to help you understand yourself as a person. True healing involves going beyond the surface to address these sources of pain. Without this healing, emotional concerns and struggles can eventually escalate and challenge your well-being and recovery. We have multiple programs available to address emotional healing. Some tools we use at Discover Recovery to treat the spirit include:
- Recovery Support Groups (such as 12-step)
- Anger Management
- Family Counseling
Recovering from drug and alcohol abuse doesn’t just mean quitting. Recovery means healing. And at Discover Recovery, healing involves a holistic treatment approach. We believe that abstinence from substances AND stable emotional well-being are key components to lasting sobriety. That’s why our holistic treatment model offers support for the mind, body, and spirit.
