Our comprehensive approach to addiction treatment allows us to treat the body, mind, and soul of all of our patients. Addiction affects the whole person. If you’re struggling with addiction, you might have experienced physical health issues such as drastic weight loss, muscle pain, or trouble sleeping. During active addiction, it can be difficult to maintain a self-care routine that involves nutritious meals and exercise. Addiction can also affect your mental health. It can exacerbate existing mental health issues, which in turn makes it more difficult to maintain sobriety. At Midwest Center at Youngstown, we offer holistic addiction therapies in order to help our patients heal in every aspect of their lives.
The holistic addiction treatment therapies we offer can help patients develop new healthy habits and outlets for stress. Learn more about our approach to treatment by contacting Midwest Center at Youngstown at 844.544.0502 today or by connecting with us online.
What Are Holistic Therapies?
Holistic therapies focus on the individual’s overall well-being while also treating the physical symptoms of addiction and withdrawal.
Holistic therapy plans are flexible, catering to the needs of each individual, and feature personalized, non-medical methods of addiction recovery. Therapists treat physical and mental addiction symptoms as well as emotional and nutritional imbalances. Lack of sleep, poor diet, and emotional stress are all potential obstacles holistic therapy might treat.
Therapies may include:
- Guided meditation
- Art therapy
Exercise and Recovery
Exercise releases endorphins that can relieve withdrawal symptoms and stress. A regular exercise routine is an essential part of becoming healthy in recovery. Our fitness center includes a fully-equipped gym with treadmills, ellipticals, a yoga room, and strength-training equipment.
A clear mind can help patients focus on overcoming the underlying issues that may have led to drug or alcohol addiction. Through guided meditation, those who have never participated in a meditation practice can learn how to increase focus. Meditation can also be a healthy outlet for stress, much like exercise.
What you eat can impact how you feel. Not only do we provide delicious, nutritious meals to our patients, but we offer nutrition education as well. As part of developing life skills, patients learn how to meal plan and shop for healthy, nutrient-rich foods.
Yoga’s focus on breathing and strengthening the body makes it an excellent addition to any addiction treatment program. In our yoga room, patients can learn new poses and discover how a regular yoga practice can relieve stress.
Painting, sculpting, and drawing can all help individuals in recovery learn more about themselves and their emotions. Art therapy can be a useful tool for those who struggle to put their feelings into words or for those who are working through traumatic past experiences.
The Benefits of Holistic Therapy
The holistic therapies we incorporate into our patients’ treatment programs offer a wide variety of benefits. These include:
- Identifying the underlying causes of addiction
- Strengthening resistance to cravings
- Promoting physical fitness
- Increasing self-confidence
- Reducing the appeal of drug and alcohol use
Holistic therapies are just one part of our comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. Other services, therapies, and interventions that we might utilize include medication-assisted treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, and family programming. During an initial assessment, our team determines which therapies and interventions will be most beneficial for each individual patient.
