Depression & Anxiety, Codependency, PTSD Treatment and Dual Diagnosis/Co-occurring Disorders

What is the best treatment for Depression and Anxiety?

Our Holistic Integrative Recovery program has been successful in helping hundreds of clients struggling with depression, codependency, PTSD, and anxiety, whether or not they are related directly to addiction.

Although we have found these mental health conditions are common in people struggling with addiction, many clients have sought recovery for mental health conditions even when no addiction is present. Holistic treatment facilities, such as, The Sanctuary in Sedona, AZ, provide a rehabilitation approach that is suited for complete recovery for the mind, body, and soul.

Addiction typically does develop in a vacuum. More often than not, there exists adjunctive or underlying conditions at the root of this disease. When not addressed and healed, conditions such as PTSD or Codependency can cause relapse by triggering the urge to use. We believe in a comprehensive, holistic approach to healing all issues—mental or physical. As such our protocols also involve treating co-existing conditions. Below are the conditions we treat alone, or concurrently with drug or alcohol addiction.

Depression Treatment

Depression is more than just sadness, it’s a downward spiral that can completely impede your ability to feel joy, pursue your life’s passions or find motivation to do anything at all. It drains your energetic force and fills you with a sense of nothingness that can seem all but inescapable at times. While it’s often purported that depression is caused by chemical imbalances in the brain, the truth is that there is no scientific evidence to support this claim – one that’s often cited in conventional therapy when prescribing medication as a primary treatment approach. At The Sanctuary, we understand that based on your brain’s neuroplasticity, it has the ability to change. Despite what mainstream physicians may have told you, you don’t have to be on medication for the rest of your life.

Codependency Treatment

Codependency is the unequal exchange of energy between two people. It expresses itself as giving away your power to another person by putting their needs above yours to the detriment of your own – and ultimately, to the detriment of all your relationships. At its core, this disorder is driven by fear, and a need to manipulate others in an attempt to control their behavior. But the truth is, control is an illusion. And the sooner you learn to accept what the universe has planned for you, the sooner you’ll begin to experience true happiness on your life’s path. Codependency is a deeply important issue to address, because it lies at the root of most other disorders and addictions. We can teach you how to move beyond it, and into true self-love.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Treatment

PTSD changes the way you see and interact with the world around you. A life that was once happy, satisfying and full of love can suddenly feel bleak, dark and hopeless, with paralyzing fear lurking around every corner. Trauma results from a stressful event that overwhelms your ability to cope – and sometimes that trauma develops into a set of symptoms that includes flashbacks, disruptive memories, nightmares, hypervigilance and myriad health risks associated with constantly high anxiety levels. Because PTSD is so pervasive and psychologically uncomfortable, those who struggle with it are at high risk for substance abuse disorders. But although this disorder seems impossibly overwhelming, it is possible to heal from it completely. At The Sanctuary, we provide a safe space for you to explore and address your trauma. Our small size and one-to-one staff-to-client ratio means you’re highly supported, and receive plenty of individual attention at all times.

Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in the US, affecting over 40 million people. It’s a part of our natural biological design; a system for dealing with threats. But threats that were once real to us are now often merely perceived, and your brain and body aren’t designed to sustain that level of stress all the time. Conventional medicine’s primary approach to anxiety is to treat it with medication. Anti-anxiety medications, however, are powerful, highly addictive drugs that have the potential to throw your brain chemistry off balance, impede the development of your natural coping skills and ultimately make the problem much worse than it was in the first place. Medication does nothing to treat your underlying symptoms – but holistic treatment does. At The Sanctuary, we combine nutrition, exercise, counseling, meditation, body work and other potent healing techniques into an integrative treatment program designed to help you effectively manage anxiety for the rest of your life.

Dual Diagnosis/ Co-occurring Disorders Treatment

A dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorder, is what happens when someone suffers from both addiction and a mental health disorder at the same time. This complicated condition is difficult to treat, and because it has a synergistic effect in which each problem tends to amplify the other, both issues need to be treated simultaneously. This web needs to be untangled before treatment can take hold in a lasting way. When substances are used to mask symptoms of mental health disorders, they can perpetuate the problem by making it less detectable. But under the surface, the symptoms are getting worse. It’s rare to find a treatment center that understands both addiction and mental health, and has the resources to aggressively treat both at the same time, via the same program, delivered by the same staff you’ve built a trusting relationship with – but that’s exactly what we offer at The Sanctuary.
