Holistic Therapy Program

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to substance abuse and mental health disorders that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since these issues affect every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

What is a Holistic Therapy Program?

For those individuals suffering from substance abuse disorders or mental health issues, a holistic therapy program employs various modalities. Holistic means “whole,” so the mind, body, and spirit of a human. Psychologists and therapists realize those connections need to be treated cohesively for the best therapy outcome. Holistic therapies may be crucial to your therapy, as you gain an increase in relaxation, mindfulness, physical ability, rejuvenation, and nourishment.

Types of Holistic Therapy Programs

Many holistic programs are available for someone going through addiction or mental health disorder recovery. The top holistic therapies include meditation, yoga, physical fitness, and mindfulness

Yoga

For centuries, the Hindus practiced a physical, mental, and spiritual discipline with yoga, which attempts to integrate the mind and body to fashion a harmonious whole. The practice teaches breath control, simple meditation, and the implementation of specific bodily postures for well-being and relaxation, as well as body strength and balance. Benefits of yoga include:
  • Reduction in stress levels
  • Increase in physical strength, flexibility, and endurance
  • Enhanced self-awareness and mind-body integration
  • Strengthened immunity
  • Regulation of emotions and an ability to manage them
  • Improved ability to live presently
  • Improved restful sleep
Done in a holistic therapy program that includes a group setting, yoga can instill a sense of peace and calm. This helps the recovering addict or trauma victim–particularly–to quiet their mind and cope with challenging situations, triggers, and stress.

Meditation

This ancient practice has been used for thousands of years, again, beginning with the Hindus. Meditation done properly can help people find calm, clarity, and increased concentration. Studies prove how powerful mindful meditation can be to improve various mental health disorders and those suffering from addiction withdrawal. Being aware and present allows your mind and body to rest and relax, as you focus on deep breathing and releasing tension. Once mastered, meditation can significantly reduce anxiety and stop the “what if’s.”

Benefits of Meditation include:
  • Emotional stability
  • Decreased blood pressure levels
  • Better mind-body connection
  • Increased serotonin production
  • Returned sense of energy
  • Enhanced ability to deal with stress
  • Improved cognitive function
Learning the practice of mindfulness enables you to use it in your daily life and increase the skills of developing confidence in your own body’s natural healing ability.

Physical Fitness

In addiction recovery, and especially after detox, your body may need assistance regaining strength and physical fitness once again. For this reason, it’s integral to participate in a physical fitness program routine to help build up your body and increase your immunity. Your cardiovascular, muscular, and skeletal systems can benefit from daily exercise and provide a sense of well-being. Plus, physical fitness releases endorphins that naturally help you feel joy.

Other benefits to daily exercises include:
  • A healthy alternative to substance abuse for coping mechanisms
  • Improved deep sleep
  • Less anxiety and depression
  • Improved strength
  • Enhanced self-worth and esteem
  • Reduction in tension

Mindfulness

The practice of being in the now takes time to master. This is what mindfulness means, to be present with yourself and not react. When you’re aware of everything going around you, but you can sit with your thoughts and be, it is a powerful antidote to anxiety and the effects of withdrawal. It’s different from meditation because you don’t focus on just nothing, as you do with meditation; instead, you focus on your thoughts, emotions, and feelings. You can also use mindfulness anytime, anywhere. It allows you to be free of judgment of right or wrong, and present without distraction.

Benefits of being mindful include:
  • Release of endorphins
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved digestion
  • Relaxing of tension around pain
  • Reduces anxiety
A holistic therapy program, such as what we use here at Step Recovery Center, offers people a way to heal their whole self that includes mind, body, and spirit.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
