Get Started Today

Receiving treatment for substance use disorders consists of much more than just detoxification and traditional talk therapy modalities. Sana at Stowe understands that providing holistic treatment gives our clients a well-rounded recovery that stays with them long after they leave our program. We offer several options for holistic rehab to ensure you have a chance to benefit from a host of healthy activities.

What Is Holistic Rehab?

Holistic rehab consists of treatment for addiction to drugs and alcohol that incorporates various holistic therapies. The premise of holistic therapy services is they go beyond traditional methods in order to heal a person’s body, mind, and spirit. This type of therapy proves effective for several types of conditions, including anxiety, depression, trauma, and addiction to drugs and alcohol. Holistic activities are known to reduce stress levels, which makes concentrating on recovery easier to accomplish. 

Holistic therapy can be done during residential or outpatient treatment, which is why many modern programs offer some version of it. The benefits of holistic therapy last beyond a person’s time in treatment. Many people continue to incorporate holistic therapies in their daily lives after treatment ends. It promotes sustained recovery while providing relaxation, focus, and good health. Many of the activities can provide healthy pastimes that people new to recovery need to incorporate to avoid downtime that can lead to the temptation to relapse.

Some types of holistic therapy are more traditional, while others may provide new experiences to those who try them. Part of the beauty of these therapies is how they can open doors to new ways to sustain recovery from addiction while feeling more centered in a person’s day-to-day life.

What Are the Benefits of Holistic Treatment?

Holistic treatments provide an approach that focuses on the whole person rather than simply treating symptoms like the physical effects of withdrawal. Many people who use holistic treatment methods experience benefits like:

  • Improved mental health: Holistic treatment options include practices aimed at coping with distressing thoughts and emotions, benefiting the mind.
  • Stress management: People who struggle with substance use disorders often have underlying stress that leads them to use. Holistic therapies provide relaxation techniques to reduce stress.
  • Life skills: Overcoming substance use disorders includes discovering new ways of life, like learning to manage time and make healthy lifestyle choices with nutrition and exercise.
  • Better overall health: Holistic drug rehabilitation provides treatment options that look out for body, mind, and spirit, reducing the urge to use substances by creating a balance within each person.

Our Holistic Treatment Options

Sana at Stowe is a holistic rehab center offering a range of treatment options to help those with substance use disorders develop healthy coping strategies. We aim to provide healing that goes beyond the physical to target emotional balance, shifting toward more positive outlets. Here are the holistic treatment options we offer.


Acupuncture is a centuries-old procedure designed to alleviate painful and chronic physical symptoms such as headaches, back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, asthma, and osteoarthritis. It also helps alleviate mental health issues like depression, anxiety, and high stress levels.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, thin needles into various pressure points in the body and leaving them in for several minutes. Most people feel only mild discomfort or no pain at all during the procedure. Several sessions are performed in order to receive optimal results.

Nutritional Guidance

Many people do not realize that good nutrition forms one of the building blocks of holistic rehab. When someone loses months or years of their lives to addiction, eating healthy typically falls by the wayside. We teach our clients to understand their individual nutritional needs and how to redesign their diets to include them.

Eating healthy foods regularly allows the body to reestablish good health and helps a person think clearly. It’s also useful for reaching and maintaining a healthy weight over a lifetime.


Yoga became popular in the U.S. years ago as a way to exercise, but it boasts many other benefits. Practicing yoga helps people manage stress, feel more relaxed, and increase their energy levels. It also helps strengthen the body, improve balance, and allow people to sleep better. The physical benefits of yoga include reducing inflammation and improving symptoms related to conditions such as arthritis and back pain.


When a person deals with a substance use disorder, their physical fitness takes a back seat. We provide a fitness studio that helps our clients welcome workouts back into their lives. Options to get your body moving include cardio machines, nautilus equipment, and free weights. You can also take a dip in our swimming pool, play a game on the tennis courts, or enjoy the fresh air and views on our serenity walk.


Sana at Stowe’s location in Vermont provides our clients with seasonal opportunities to enjoy snowshoeing. No experience is necessary, allowing anyone to enjoy this unique workout that helps individuals build muscles, improve agility, and get a great cardiovascular workout. Being outside while engaging in this exercise allows people to connect with nature and enjoy the fresh air and unbeatable views.


Gardening provides a great opportunity to spend time outdoors and be a part of nature. The act of working in a garden helps reduce stress, provides a gentle amount of exercise, and allows you to center yourself while engaging in a productive act. A study reported that gardening helps people struggling with alcoholism in their recovery efforts.
