What is Holistic Addiction Treatment?
At BRC Recovery, our treatment philosophy involves caring for the whole patient throughout the entire continuum of care. From intervention to treatment and aftercare, we seek to empower our clients to live fulfilling, productive lives in recovery. We’re very proud to offer a holistic approach to recovery.
Addiction is a disease that affects every aspect of your life, not just your physical fitness or your mental health. Therefore, it stands to reason that it is best treated with a comprehensive approach. BRC Recovery services are designed to care for the whole patient: mind, body, and spirit. The combination of these three elements comprise “the whole patient” and are addressed through a variety of therapeutic methods outlined below.
Elements of Holistic Recovery
Yoga and Fitness
At BRC, we define physical fitness at your body’s ability to function with sufficient energy for everyday activities, as well as its capability to handle physical, mental, and emotional stress. With this definition in mind, we have made physical fitness a cornerstone of our treatment philosophy. Beyond creating healthy habits and ensuring better quality of life, fitness is also a fundamental conduit of the mind-body connection: the relationship between yourself and your physical body. We seek to strengthen this during your stay at BRC Recovery, which is why we provide access to state-of-the-art fitness equipment, personal trainers, and yoga classes. Through these exercises, you’ll gain a better understanding of yourself and achieve mental clarity.
Those in the throes of addiction are often unable to prioritize anything but their substance of choice. As their lives revolve around drugs and alcohol, simple hygiene tasks like self-care and paying the bills can fall by the wayside. We believe that life skills are an important tenant to your overall recovery, which is why BRC Recovery established a complete Life Skills Program to help you thrive – not just survive – after treatment. Our curriculum includes training in goal setting, accountability, financial responsibility, physical health, communication, healthy relationships, and community service. By setting aside time to learn these important skills, you’ll set yourself up for success in your day-to-day life.
The most effective way to experience 12-Step teachings is to receive them from a dedicated team who can walk you through applying these principles to your daily life. Rather than rushing through or just using a book for reference, we recommend slowing down and truly processing what each of the twelve steps means to you. By breaking up the twelve steps over a period of several weeks, you’ll fully understand the gravity and reasoning behind each stage.
Our emphasis on the connection of mind, body, and spirit exists to create total holistic wellbeing. The “spirit” component involves a deep understanding and reliance on one’s higher power, regardless of what that specifically looks like according to your background or personal beliefs.
Clinical support includes all manner of individual or group counseling sessions available to those at BRC Recovery. Our therapeutic models are all customized according to your specific needs, and there are a variety of options available. Attendees benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Motivational Interviewing (MI). We also offer family counseling services, which educate and equip family members to confront the realities of addiction (and what comes after treatment). By participating in the clinical support arm of our program, you’ll care for the “mind” component of the mind-body-spirit connection.
