Holistic therapy is concerned with the idea that human reality has an existence outside of the sum of its parts and should be embraced and celebrated.
These days, holistic treatments are seen as complements to traditional treatment practices, but in ancient times, they were all that we had. At Beachway Therapy Center, we honor the past and respect our elder’s knowledge. We are solid proponents of whatever is going to work for you.
Can Holistic Treatment Bring The Soul And Body Into Alignment?
We can help you focus on the broad strokes of achieving wellbeing instead of the physical withdrawal of addiction.
Addiction can lead to a lack of sleep, an irregular, insufficient diet, and stress. Holistic treatments aim to realign the body as a whole and speed up recovery by letting people enjoy life again from a sober position.
Holistic therapy aims to:
- Identify the hidden causes of addiction
- Strengthen resistance to cravings
- Improve fitness levels
- Increase confidence
- Reduce the appeal of drug and alcohol use
Psychodrama therapy can be very beneficial in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. Psychodrama is a creative and therapeutic treatment that uses drama and role-playing to figure out the underlying problems that cause addiction.
Participants in psychodrama therapy reenact scenes of the past, dreams, and hopes for the future. The hope is that psychodrama can help to gain new insights and resolve problems in real time.
Benefits of Art Therapy in Rehab
The root causes of addiction must be unearthed through serious reflection and true conversations, but it can be difficult for some people to open up and share their feelings with others. For these people, art therapy can be a powerful and important part of the healing process. Using painting and drawing to communicate gives recovering addicts a way to work through tough emotions without speaking. The American Art Therapy Association (AATA) sees art therapy as a way to:
- Resolve conflicts
- Develop interpersonal skills
- Manage behavior
- Reduce stress
- Increase self-esteem
- Increase self-awareness
Faith-based Christian drug and alcohol rehabilitation involves techniques that use a spiritual connection to help overcome the need for alcohol or drugs. Faith-based Christian rehab sees your relationship with God as an integral part of healing. Everyone deserves a second chance – everyone deserves forgiveness.
Using the healing power of horses for treating addiction is a relatively new approach that can yield powerful results. During sessions, clients perform trust exercises and work with a horse, reading and responding to its body language. Horses have been known to mirror human emotions and are intuitive animals that can have a positive impact on clients’ processes. The goal of equine therapy is to leave a person with feelings of power and confidence.
