Did you know that chronic stress can be a trigger for substance use? Many of those who struggle with addiction have used drugs or alcohol in the past to find relief from difficult emotions like anxiety, depression, and stress. Treating every aspect of the individual is key to long-term success in recovery. Holistic treatment for addiction involves care for the person’s physical, mental, and spiritual health. One approach we use at Tree House Recovery is meditative therapy, a form of holistic treatment that can help individuals to gain control over their emotions and thoughts.
In our meditative therapy program, clients are guided through different types of meditation, such as mindfulness and guided imagery. Through this practice, individuals learn to recognize the triggers that cause them distress and work through them without the need for drugs or alcohol. We also help clients to work through past traumas and learn how to process difficult emotions in healthy ways.
Addiction doesn’t have to control your life. Reach out to our team at 910.812.1728 today to learn more.
What Is Meditative Therapy?
Meditative therapy is a type of holistic treatment that involves the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness is the act of focusing on the present moment by observing emotions and thoughts without judgment. How does this help with addiction? Mindfulness allows individuals to recognize when they’re feeling distressed or overwhelmed and work through their emotions without turning to drugs or alcohol.
Meditative therapy isn’t the only component of addiction treatment in our center. While this form of therapy, also referred to as meditation therapy, can be very beneficial in recovery, we also incorporate evidence-based practices such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) into our clients’ treatment plans. This well-rounded approach means that treatment can be more easily personalized to help ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.
