Overview of Holistic-Based Recovery Services for Sober Living Operators
Holistic-Based Recovery Services
Integrative wellness, also known as holistic medicine, is a method of healing that incorporates traditional and complementary treatments to treat the whole individual.
Holistic medicine recognizes overall physical, physiological, spiritual, and emotional well-being to achieve optimum health rather than treating substance abuse in isolation.
This group of therapies is growing in popularity despite the lack of objective evidence (in many cases due to a lack of research). Some alternative treatments are now commonly used as part of conventional drug abuse recovery services.
In addition to more conventional therapies, holistic medicine may include:
- Guided Imagery
- Massage Therapy
- Meditation and Mindfulness
- Yoga Instruction
- Art Therapy
- Music Therapy
- Dance and Movement Therapy
- Drama Therapy
- Equine Therapy
- Canine Therapy
- Wilderness Therapy
