There is no cookie cutter approach to treating alcoholism. Most enter into traditional treatment programs for alcoholism and are treated as the addiction not as a person suffering from alcoholism. Holistic treatment for alcoholism looks at the person as an individual and puts together aspects to the recovery process that will aid them personally in their treatment.
What is Holistic Treatment for Alcoholism?
Holistic treatment for alcoholism focuses on healing the mind, body and soul from alcohol abuse. The treatment program consists of 40 hour weeks of therapy and counseling sessions where you will be able to get to the cause of your addiction along with other psychological issue you may have. The holistic healing approach will teach you key tools in maintaining your sobriety, working through withdrawal without relapse and discomfort. Holistic medications can be given to offer you comfort, relax your mind and body and to allow you to focus on healing as a whole.
To be detoxified in a holistic treatment center involves regular visits to a spa type facility where you will go into the whirlpool, steam and saunas. You will exercise 3 times weekly, this helps the body to cleanse itself of chemicals and toxins by releasing them from the cells and muscles. You will go to a weekly yoga class to teach you meditation, this will give you balance in both your mind and body.
Nutrition is important in the holistic healing approach. You will enjoy low carb and high protein meals that will rebuild your body and allow your mind to focus on healing. You are going to learn to eat healthy, be healthy.
Vitamins and Minerals
You will be assessed to determine if you are in need of any added vitamins or minerals. Many with a history of alcoholism have vitamin or mineral deficiency that can make the body feel week. Getting the proper vitamins and minerals will allow your body to heal and by healthy.
