Holistic Treatments for Addiction in the United States
Holistic treatment of drug and alcohol addiction consists of addressing the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of addiction. It does so through the use of various techniques, many of them considered traditional techniques (such as meditation, acupuncture, etc.). The use of alternative treatments is usually combined with an already established drug and alcohol addiction treatment model.
What are the benefits of holistic treatment of substance addiction?
The holistic approach to addiction focuses on the different aspects of recovery. Some treatments are aimed at helping with the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Others look to address the mental or spiritual problems that can be an underlying cause of chemical dependency. Based on one’s preferences and/or beliefs, it can put the person at ease and help through the addiction recovery process. Some people truly benefit from having holistic treatments complement their standard drug addiction treatment program.
