Holistic treatment means that we focus on healing the whole person, not just treating the symptoms. It is our goal to work with you to determine the root or underlying cause or causes of your addiction and any co-occurring disorders. Through our holistic treatment lens we are able to find and address any imbalances in the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual parts of your life.
In order to create sustainable recovery practices, you must be willing to change your mindset – letting go of any limiting beliefs you will find a new sense of self-worth and clarity of purpose for the future.
The emotional parts of healing include working through past traumatic experiences, feelings of anxiety and depression, and learning how to appropriately experience and express the full range of human emotion. We provide you with a safe place to work through any emotional blockages or traumatic experiences that may be preventing you from moving forward.
Physical healing includes many different parts, such as: reconnecting with your body and providing it with the food and nutrients it needs for you to restore your physical health; addressing any new or current medical conditions or diseases you may have; learning healthy eating habits and how what you eat relates to how you feel; understanding how exercising and moving your body has a positive impact on your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
We teach you how to reconnect with the truest, most authentic version of yourself using many different techniques and practices. Our forms of spiritual healing include, but are not limited to, practicing of self-love and creating a self-care routine; mindfulness-based practices and meditation; energy healing; connecting with nature; and opportunities for you to get outside of yourself and connect with something greater. Part of spiritual healing is to acknowledge your pain, not to suppress it or pretend like it didn’t happen. We have found that if you continue to suppress your pain, it creates resistance and leads to feelings of anxiety and depression. We help you work through your past, find acceptance, and move forward with greater confidence.
Typical Day in Treatment
The wake up time is at 6:30 AM on Monday through Friday 6:30 AM and 7:30 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Consistently waking up around the same time each day provides structure and contributes to healthier sleep patterns.
Each day we incorporate some kind of movement into our morning routine. Movement may consist of anything from yoga, stretching, walking, or jogging – depending upon whether there is physical activity planned later in the day.
We provide guided meditations each morning to help you find a sense of calmness before the start of each day and to learn how to sit with any strong emotions that may be present.
We provide balanced breakfasts each morning.
There are several therapy groups planned into each day. These groups are ran by a licensed mental health professional.
We have a variety of other group activities planned throughout the week. Some of these groups include: recreational activity; mind-body healing; spirituality; and more!
Each afternoon, everyone sits together to enjoy a nutritious and balanced lunch.
In addition to our morning movement, we have various physical activities planned throughout each week that teach you how to strengthen your body and cope with stress through exercise.
We have both in house meetings and attend outside support groups each week.
Each day you are given time to work on personal assignments given to you by your therapist, found in your Fearless Kind workbook, or from another provider.
Peer support is offered weekly. During this time, you are able to gain insight into addiction recovery by hearing about the lived experiences of others who have been through similar things.
There is some free time built into each day. During this time, you are expected to process what you have been learning, do what you need to take care of yourself, step outside to get some fresh air, journal, relax, or connect with others in treatment.
We all join each other each evening to connect with our bodies and one another by sharing a meal.
Each night, we guide you in a discussion about your day – focusing on things you would like to let go of before bed. This is also your opportunity to reflect and process what you experienced or learned during the day.
We do have time on most evenings for you to connect with others and learn how to have FUN in recovery! During this time we watch movies together, build puzzles, play games, and other fun activities!
Our lights out time each night is at 10:00 PM most days and 10:30 PM on Friday and Saturday.
During individual therapy, you will get one-on-one time with your assigned therapist to work through your personal challenges in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. You and your therapist will work collaboratively to create an individualized treatment plan to help you set both short and long-term goals.
