In the wide array of addiction recovery services available, you’ll find that they generally fall into two categories: traditional treatment for addiction or mental health disorders and holistic therapy that considers the interconnectedness of these issues. At Sana at Stowe, we believe that the holistic model consistently leads to long-term freedom from alcohol and other destructive addiction patterns. By offering holistic residential treatment centers, we provide a comprehensive view of your addictions. In turn, this enables a better understanding of your motivations and behaviors to aid in your healing.

We are dedicated to providing transformative holistic alcohol rehab services that go beyond conventional methods. If you or someone you care about is seeking a holistic approach to alcoholism, our program can help. Recovery is a demanding journey that requires courage, support, and persistence, and not all recovery programs offer the same tools to their clients.

What Does “Holistic” Mean?

When we talk about “holistic” in the realm of health and wellness, we’re referring to an approach that considers all aspects of an individual. This is particularly important in addiction recovery, as it’s essential to address the many ways that the effects of alcohol addiction can impact a person’s life, including:

  • Decision-making and risk calculation
  • Close, familial relationships
  • Professional goals
  • Internal sense of worth
  • Spiritual life
  • Physical and financial health

At Sana at Stowe, we wholeheartedly embrace holistic care as the cornerstone of our programs. We combine trauma-centered treatment with heart-centered care, treating our clients respectfully and honoring their choices throughout their recovery journey. Our holistic residential treatment centers provide clients with a safe place to heal and begin their new journey.

Why Use a Holistic Approach to Rehab

When considering the right rehab center, it’s important to recognize how a holistic approach can lead to positive individual outcomes. For many clients, they are sick of hiding the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse and are ready to get lasting help. Holistic rehab centers value the interconnectedness of the mind, body, and spirit in the recovery process. Rather than solely treating the symptoms of addiction, they focus on understanding the root causes for each person. Unlike traditional rehab programs, which often neglect the mental and emotional components of addiction, holistic therapy empowers individuals to take charge of their well-being and claim their power. Key principles of holistic treatment include:

  1. Root Cause Resolution: Holistic therapy seeks to identify and heal the root causes of addiction, not just alleviate the symptoms.
  2. Unconditional Support for Healing: Holistic therapy fosters an environment of unconditional love and support, addressing emotional needs without judgment.
  3. Person-Centric Approach: Each person receives personalized treatment tailored to their unique self.
  4. Belief in Personal Growth: Holistic therapy is founded on the belief that every individual struggling with addiction can embark on a journey of personal growth.
  5. Collaborative Problem-Solving: Holistic therapy encourages a collaborative approach, with clients and healthcare providers working as partners in the healing process.

At Sana at Stowe, we believe that the traumas we experience form the foundation of substance misuse and affect various aspects of our lives. Through our holistic rehab and trauma treatment, we guide our clients patiently and compassionately, allowing them to explore and address the foundational traumas that motivate them.

How a Holistic Approach Helps in Recovery

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to recovery. Each person is unique. Holistic detox centers tailor treatment plans to address the specific needs of each individual. At Sana at Stowe, we pay attention to your specific hurts, traumas, and goals, creating a personalized healing plan that will likely support your recovery journey. Our wellness and holistic services include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Nutritional Guidance
  • Yoga
  • Fitness
  • Snowshoeing
  • Gardening

We offer a comprehensive range of therapy options tailored to individual needs, enabling us to create personalized treatment for alcohol use disorder and recovery paths that support long-term progress. Our holistic treatment for alcoholism is designed to accommodate busy schedules, addressing concerns about the duration of alcohol rehab. This holistic approach not only helps break the cycle of addiction but also empowers individuals with the necessary tools to confidently navigate life’s challenges while maintaining sobriety.

Dual Diagnosis at Sana at Stowe

Sana at Stowe specializes in providing dual-diagnosis treatment. Mental health disorders often contribute to and worsen substance abuse and vice versa. Our experienced team is able to address the crossover between addiction and mental health, offering comprehensive care.

According to the 2022 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, roughly 21.5 million American adults have a dual diagnosis involving addiction to alcohol or drugs and at least one diagnosable mental health issue. The terms “dual diagnosis” and “co-occurring disorders” are interchangeable, both referring to the same condition. Common mental health disorders that may co-occur with alcohol and drug addiction include:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Schizophrenia
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Eating disorders

A qualified clinician can identify if a person has a dual diagnosis and provide guidance on the appropriate treatment. Dual-diagnosis programs and treatment facilities in New England can effectively identify and support dual-diagnosis cases to address both issues. Our holistic approach at Sana at Stowe allows us to evaluate addictive behaviors from various perspectives. When treating dual diagnosis, we typically prioritize addressing the most severe condition first, followed by the less serious ones.

Holistic residential treatment center care is usually the recommended treatment for individuals with a dual diagnosis. It requires extensive experience and long-term care to unravel the root causes of illnesses and devise an effective dual-diagnosis treatment plan.
