We believe the mind, body and spirit are interconnected. Without balance in all three areas, patients will not experience a full recovery. At APEX, we take an integrative approach to treatment; our holistic practices focus on healing the mind through behavioral therapies, treating the body through safe, supervised detoxification and essential nutrition, and recovering the spirit that lives within each and every patient. Where possible, we employ natural therapies and organic ingredients to help aid in the recovery process.
The fact is that there are many reasons why individuals turn to alcohol and drugs. These substances are forms of escape, but unfortunately, the abusers don’t typically know what exactly it is they are trying to escape, or heal. Because holistic healing programs bear in mind the whole picture, they are most likely to be effective for alcohol and drug rehab.
Our San Diego-based rehabilitation center uses holistic healing to complement traditional pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy in detoxification, rehabilitation and extended care. Holistic healing offers diverse therapeutic options that boost the results of traditional intervention. APEX Rehab puts a lot of effort into creating personalized recovery plans that include both traditional and holistic treatment, so that every patient experiences comprehensive rehabilitation.
The way holistic healing interacts with traditional methods of treatment, such as psychotherapy and medications, is that it often “opens up” the patient and makes them more receptive to counseling, introspection, insights and medication.
There is scientific evidence that holistic healing increases the likelihood of rehabilitation success, because it focuses on improving mental and physical well-being and restoring balance. What addicts try to do through their alcohol and drug abuse is precisely that – they basically want to feel good, but the path they choose is wrong and ineffective.
These are the elements of our holistic healing in our alcohol and drug rehab in San Diego:
