Holistic Drug Rehab in Sedona, Az

At The Sanctuary at Sedona, we understand the challenges of treating addiction. Whether you’ve tried inpatient rehab facilities, outpatient clinics, AA or do-it-yourself approaches, it can feel like nothing works . We know what it’s like to feel so desperately lost in the spiral of addiction that the only thing that matters is quitting. And we also understand how that can feel downright impossible.

As Mike, one of our former clients, says:

“I was lost before coming here; I was shattered. And I didn’t even know which piece of me was shattered; there were so many different masks I was wearing.”

You can be free from addiction. You can live the life you really want.

The Sanctuary at Sedona is a 30-Day minimum, residential, alternative, holistic drug addiction treatment program. Our substance abuse treatment program combines the latest evidence-based therapies with complementary treatments and Indigenous wisdom traditions for a holistic approach to recovery.

If you feel trapped in an endless cycle of drug addiction, we can help.

What is a Holistic Addiction Treatment Program?

The Sanctuary at Sedona is not your typical addiction treatment center. Located in the beautiful, natural surroundings of Sedona, Arizona, our addiction recovery center takes a holistic approach to recovery.

Freedom from drugs is not just a physical experience. These substances impact every area of a person’s life — body, mind, soul and spirit. True healing means repairing the brain, recovering the mind and freeing the soul from addiction.

Our personalized addiction treatment plans use various therapeutic models tailored to your unique needs. These may include clinical therapies, doctor-prescribed medications, life skills classes, IV therapy and other transformational complementary treatments.

Our holistic offerings aim to treat the underlying causes of your addiction so you can find true healing. We then equip you with the skills you need to forge ahead in freedom.

What Does Holistic Mean?

Holistic treatment is defined as “the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.”

Other important principles of holistic medicine include the following:

  • You are a person, not a disease.
  • Humans possess the innate ability to heal.
  • Treatments address your entire wellbeing.
  • Healing takes a collaborative effort between you and your practitioners.
  • To truly heal, we need to get to the root cause of the issue.

Holistic addiction treatments range from yoga and nature walks (for a healthier relationship with your body) to sound therapy (for a calmer mind). That doesn’t mean holistic rehabs ignore conventional therapies like CBT. Rather, alternative therapies, mindfulness tools, and evidenced-based treatment are woven together into a well-rounded program.

Drug Addiction Treatment Center in Arizona

At The Sanctuary, addiction recovery is about more than getting sober — it’s about finding your meaning, passion and purpose. It’s not enough to abstain from substances just because someone tells you to. We want you to find something so exciting and engaging that using doesn’t seem interesting anymore. We believe this is possible for everyone.

Our residential drug addiction center helps you heal from the inside out. Using a four-part process, we guide you to:

  1. Examine and change the belief systems contributing to your addiction
  2. Explore your shadows and come into a healthier relationship with them
  3. Connect to your passion and envision new possibilities
  4. Execute your vision using the new skills and knowledge you acquired

Types of Drug Addictions

Our holistic drug rehab center offers healing from all types of addiction, as well as trauma, depression and anxiety. Some of the substance addictions we treat include:

Alcohol Addiction Treatment

While alcohol use is very normalized in our culture, its consequences are very dangerous. Many people drink to self-medicate issues like depression and anxiety without realizing they’re doing so. If you’re concerned about how much you’re drinking, it may be time to look into getting some help.

Cocaine Addiction Treatment

Cocaine is a highly addictive drug. What starts out as “casual” or “social” use can quickly lead to addiction. Even occasional weekend cocaine use can elevate stress hormones, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke and alter the brain’s natural circuitry.

Marijuana Addiction Treatment

Marijuana addiction often isn’t taken seriously , but any substance used regularly can have a profound impact on us mentally, physically and spiritually. Chronic or heavy marijuana use can drain your energy, diminishing the drive necessary to move your life forward and pursue your true purpose.

Opiate and Heroin Addiction Treatment

Heroin is an extremely physically addictive drug, and its severe withdrawal symptoms can be dangerous to face alone. If you’re looking to stop using heroin, it’s best to get help from a professional addiction treatment center . A holistic addiction treatment program like The Sanctuary can help you detox safely and treat the underlying causes of your addiction, so you can fully and sustainably recover.

Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

Prescription drug abuse is widespread in the U.S., largely because of the over-prescription of painkillers and anti-anxiety medications by doctors with little training in addiction science. Despite their common use, these drugs are extremely powerful and habit-forming — and stopping their use often requires professional help.

At the Sanctuary, our prescription drug addiction treatment includes a medication review by an on-staff Ph.D. psychiatrist who can help you get things back under control.

Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment

Meth addiction can take over your life with binging,sleeplessness, and psychosis. It can also open you up to interactions with dark energies, which can be very disorienting — something conventional meth addiction treatment doesn’t address. Our Non-12 Step meth addiction treatment at The Sanctuary goes beyond conventional approaches, offering energy medicine sessions with practitioners who are experienced in dealing with exactly this phenomenon.

Other Drug Addictions

Other addictions we treat at The Sanctuary include but aren’t limited to:

  • Benzodiazepines
  • Stimulants
  • Smart drugs
  • Inhalants
  • Sedatives
  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Bath salts
  • Synthetic cannabinoids
  • Kratom

What Can Holistic Drug Addiction Treatment Do for Me?

The Sanctuary’s holistic non-12 Step addiction treatment program offers a complete healing journey. Designed to address all aspects affected by addiction, our clients find our holistic addiction treatment programs help them to:

Find calm.

We begin your addiction treatment experience by oncalming your nervous system. This helps you to feel more settled and comfortable in your own skin, making you better prepared for the changes you experience throughout the treatment process. Our natural surroundings , nutrient-rich food, and caring staff further support you in feeling good in your body and at ease with yourself.

Feel safe.

Our clients often highlight how welcoming and accepting our family energy at The Sanctuary. We prioritize creating a space where you feel valued and trusted, allowing you to relax — a crucial foundation to your treatment progress. We ensure you feel completely safe before diving into more vulnerable therapeutic work.

Gain perspective.

Addiction prevents us from getting in touch with ourselves and creates confusion and chaos in our lives. But after spending some time with us, our clients find that they’re able to see their situation more clearly and, consequently, better understand their needs. By recognizing addicition as a separate entity from their identity, they gain a newfound sense of empowerment and perspective on life.

Mike describes the transformation he experienced at The Sanctuary:

“I finally had a moment of clarity, and I can see now. I had this vision in my head, but I didn’t have it in my heart. Since I’ve been here, I’ve been able to find the ‘me’ in my heart.”

Approach for Addiction Treatment Actually Help? 

At The Sanctuary, we know it doesn’t matter what substance you’re addicted to — its’ the underlying mechanism behind the addication that needs addressing. Addiction often stems from trying to fill an internal void. Until we find out what’s underneath , it doesn’t go away.

That’s why our holistic, non-12 Step treatment for drug addiction treatment leads you on an inward journey to parts of yourself that traditional addictions rehab doesn’t reach. In fact, unlike 12-Step programs, we believe in true recovery, when you can move beyond your addiction. But it takes an open mind and a willingness to go where you haven’t gone before.

“All we have to do when we come here is open ourselves up to [the healing journey], and bring it into our hearts, and then when we leave here, use it,” says Mike. “Those aren’t the easiest things, but the way I feel now I know I will, and I know I can.”

What Causes Drug Addiction?

Addiction is complex and often stems from unresolved trauma, serving as a coping mechanism for deeper emotional distress. We use drugs to deal with discomfort, especially amidst the stressors of daily life.

Addiction takes a toll on the mind, body, and spirit, leading you to lose touch with your authentic self.

What is your authentic self? This is your pure, genuine side – the inner you, full of life and joy. Life experiences, particularly trauma, can dim this inner light. Trauma weakens the connection you your authentic self, leaving a void that drives external attempts to fill it, whether through substances or other means, like over working.

But here’s the silver lining: addiction can be a wake-up call – a voice telling us to heal and recover our true self. Through a blend of clinical therapies and holistic techniques (like daily mindfulness practice), we can rediscover our passions and reshape our brains for lasting change.

Who is Most at Risk for Drug Addiction?

A common myth is that genetics determine addiction, setting people up for a lifelong battle. But viewing drug addiction in this way is can harm your confidence and self-worth, increasing the risk of relapse.

Modern psychology points to deeper causes of suffering as the root for addiction. Suffering is something that no one can avoid, regardless of circumstances. What matters is learning how to navigate life’s challenges in a way that’s not damaging to ourselves and or others.

At The Sanctuary, we don’t see any of our clients as inherently at-risk. We understand that every one of us has inner struggles. Here, you’ll learn to relate to them in a highly supported, constructive way. You are not destined to be an addict because of your background, family history, or genetics.

Our progressive program focuses on guiding you toward self-fulfillment through holistic therapies, comprehensive care, and the strong support of a therapeutic community.

Our Holistic Treatment Program for Drug Addiction

To achieve real recovery from drug addiction, treatment must go beyond psychological therapy and address addiction from your body, soul and spirit, too. That’s exactly what holistic rehab at The Sanctuary offers.

Our holistic addiction treatment programs are not afterthoughts or add-ons. Each of our alternative therapy practitioners is highly skilled in their field. Together, we will customize a program specific to your needs, integrating physical, mental, emotional, and energetic approaches to overall health.

During your time at The Sanctuary, you will experience a combination of therapies, which may include:

Holistic Approach to Treatment: Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit

Holistic treatments for substance use disorders go beyond just treating symptoms of addiction. They address every aspect of you – mind, body, soul, and spirit.

Mind. Treatments for the mind include therapy sessions, daily mindfulness practice, meditation, and recovery coaching. These help us heal from issues that often co-occur with addiction, like anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

Body. Substance abuse damages our body in many ways, so nutrition and exercise therapy is especially important. We often neglect the body during times of addiction. Our diet suffers, throwing off the digestive system; we ignore exercise, weakening the muscles; we undereat or overeat, dysregulating our hormones. Holistic therapies for the body are designed to repair these damages.

Soul. Parts of the soul, where your life-purpose lives, become lost to trauma or addiction. Holistic treatments are designed to retrieve that side of yourself through art, dance, nature, and rites of passage ceremonies.

Spirit. Every human has a spirit, or an energy body. With trauma and addiction, imprints for diseases can show up in our energy bodies, dysregulating the nervous system. Energy medicine techniques restore balance to your energy body.

At The Sanctuary, we integrate these treatment options in our comprehensive non-12 Step program, making sure you’re guided through all aspects of recovery at a pace that suits you.

Different Types of Drug Addiction Therapies

Most drug rehabs offer both inpatient and outpatient care. Inpatient treatment brings you onsite: you’ll be living with others who are also a part of the program, receive direct counseling, actively engage in therapies, adjust to healthier diets, and stay in a safe environment away from triggers and stressors.

The Sanctuary’s inpatient program includes a blend of the following drug addiction therapies:

  • Clinical therapeutic evidenced therapies
  • Alternative complementary treatment modalities
  • Life skill classes and recovery practice

Our outpatient care serves as a continuation of inpatient treatment. We offer follow-up therapy sessions and support for implementing what you’ve learned during your time with us. Additionally, we connect you to trusted local partners who offer therapies that align with your needs.

Even If You’ve Been to AA Countless Times, We Can Help

We know when you’ve been through drug addiction treatments repeatedly with the same results, recovery can seem like a lost cause. But holistic drug addiction treatment at The Sanctuary is completely different. In fact, encouraging you to see things from a fresh perspective is a fundamental part of the treatment experience.

Identifying as a lifelong addict imposes limitations on how well you can be. While the 12-Step model sees addiction as a chronic illness that can only be managed, we believe true recovery is possible.

We’re more than a luxury holistic drug rehab center— we’re a life rejuvenation center. Here, the goal isn’t just sobriety — it’s for life to get better. This means:

  • You’ve identified and healed your underlying issues.
  • You’re not defined by a diagnosis or a label someone has placed on you.
  • You don’t use drugs anymore because you don’t want to.
  • You’re no longer a victim of your past.
  • You are whole and healed.
  • You’re free to be your most authentic self.
  • You’re ready to build a future and fully participate in your life.

“What happened at The Sanctuary?” says Mike. “I found myself. I found the authentic me. I’ve become whole. I feel whole. Or I know how to continue that journey towards wholeness, at least.”

At The Sanctuary, every member of our leadership and clinical team firmly believes you can recover from addiction.

Our integrative treatments open the path to healing on all levels. We help guide you, meeting you at whichever stage you’re at in your journey. And if one path doesn’t work for you, we encourage you to explore others.

It is possible to create transformational change that lasts a lifetime. The type of change where you find fulfillment without substances and rediscover life’s joys. You can be free from the chains of addiction.
