Different Types of Holistic Treatment for Drug Addiction
Holistic treatments for drug addiction 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 treatments in our comprehensive non-12 Step program, making sure you’re guided through all aspects of recovery at a pace that suits you.
What are the Different Types of Drug Addiction Therapies?
Most 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 that places you far 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
Meanwhile, our outpatient care is provided as a continuation of inpatient treatment. We offer follow-up therapy sessions and methods for actively implementing what you’ve learned during your time with us. We also point you in the direction of trusted local partners who offer therapies you’ve found most helpful.
Even If You’ve Been to AA Countless Times, We Can Help
We know that when you’ve been through drug addiction treatments over and over again with the same results, recovery can start to seem like a lost cause. But holistic drug addiction treatment at The Sanctuary is completely different. In fact, constantly encouraging you to see things from a fresh perspective is a fundamental part of the treatment experience.
Identifying as a lifelong addict automatically imposes limitations on how well you can be. While the 12-Step model views addiction as a chronic illness that can only be managed and never overcome, we believe it’s entirely possible to be recovered.
We’re so much more than a rehab — we’re a life rejuvenation center. And when you’re here, you’ll realize that 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.”
