Holistic Methods in Drug Rehab
Traditional drug rehabs focus on providing treatment through a similar plan that starts with a detox, then inpatient residential treatment that can include individual therapy (heavily focused on cognitive behavioral therapy), and group therapy. It’s rare to find a rehab that doesn’t include any of the aforementioned. There are some rehabs that believe there is more to rehabilitation, everyone is not going to recover from the same formula of treatment. It’s not uncommon nowadays for rehabs to include at least one form of holistic therapy solutions alongside traditional therapy methods of rehabilitation. Holistic therapy and drug rehabs have been combining in recent years to bring a more multidimensional approach to drug rehabilitation.
In order to do this holistic therapy and drug rehabs combine 4 common types of therapy that include:
Massage Therapy –
According to the 2007 National Health Interview Survey, which included a comprehensive survey of CAM use by Americans, an estimated 18 million U.S. adults and 700,000 children had received massage therapy in the previous year.
People use massage for a variety of health-related purposes, including relieving pain, rehabilitating sports injuries, reducing stress, increasing relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and aid general wellness.
Acupuncture Therapy –
A new study in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that nearly 18,000 people who had participated in studies examining the effectiveness of acupuncture and found that, yes, it really is a good treatment for chronic pain and that doctors should start recommending it as treatment for arthritis and other chronic ailments. This would certainly help reduce the amount of prescriptions being give to people with pain that’s ultimately getting a lot of them addicted to painkillers. Acupuncture Therapy also helps relieve back pain, persistent headaches (good news for migraine sufferers), soothes digestion and can help curb some negative side effects from radiation.
Chiropractic Therapy –
Many addicts that are addicted to pain killers became addicted after suffering a major injuries or surgeries that required a strong pain reliever for recovery. While in rehab these patients may start to feel the pain in their joints, bones, and body that they’ve been covering up with pain pills. Chiropractic care can heal back, neck and joint pain.
When something happens to us, we remember it and learn a particular behavior in response to what happened. Each time something similar happens, our physical and emotional reactions attached to the memory are repeated. In some cases these reactions are unhealthy. In some forms of hypnotherapy, a trained therapist guides you to remember the event that led to the first reaction, separate the memory from the learned behavior, and replace unhealthy behaviors with new, healthier ones.
During hypnosis, your body relaxes and your thoughts become more focused. Like other relaxation techniques, hypnosis lowers blood pressure and heart rate, and changes certain types of brain wave activity. In this relaxed state, you will feel at ease physically yet fully awake mentally and may be highly responsive to suggestion. Your conscious mind becomes less alert and your subconscious mind becomes more focused. Some people respond better to hypnotic suggestion than others.
