Holistic Therapies to Fuel Addiction Recovery
Reflections Recovery Center is committed to utilizing the latest, cutting-edge holistic techniques to help our clients recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Although our clinical treatment primarily takes place in an offsite outpatient location, the holistic activities we offer to clients take place in our residential and outpatient facilities and even offsite.
Reflections is located in picturesque Prescott, Arizona, accepting new clients from our hometown as well as Prescott Valley, Phoenix, Flagstaff and even out of state. We offer a men’s-only program for drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and, as we mentioned, we have both a residential and an outpatient property. Also, we have the full continuum of care available to treatment seekers, from intervention and detox to residential and aftercare.
Why We Focus on Holistic Addiction Treatment
Some treatment centers might get caught up on alleviating their clients’ symptoms to the point where they forget to address underlying causes. If that happens, their clients’ risk of relapse increases after inpatient treatment has ceased.
At Reflections, we believe it’s imperative to treat the client as a whole – mind, body and spirit. This is what our holistic addiction recovery center is about: Addressing the entire person instead only trying to mitigate the symptoms of the addiction (such as withdrawal).
Our goal is to eventually hand over the reins of responsibility to the client regarding his own physical, emotional, spiritual and nutritional health. Addiction often lets these considerations go by the wayside, and it usually takes an outside party to help the person up until he is in a better state of mind and physical health.
To help each client take a renewed interest in his own health and overall outlook, holistic therapy is one of the main avenues of treatment we offer.
Our Holistic Addiction Recovery Center’s Methods
We’re constantly adding new forms of holistic treatment to our program – based on new trends and research – but here are the mainstays you can look forward to if you’re admitted to Reflections Recovery Center.
Yoga is offered recreationally and at treatment centers of all kinds across the country, but at Reflections, our yoga instruction is specifically tailored to addiction recovery. Yoga originated in India several thousand years ago, and it has gained prominence in the U.S. over the last couple of decades.
Yoga helps us achieve several goals at Reflections. The practice gives a physical, mental and spiritual boost to each client. When it comes to battling addiction, yoga is particularly effective at reducing stress and producing feelings of contentment and pleasure.
Reiki is the practice of transferring energy from a therapist (or healer) to another subject. In fact, reiki is a Japanese word that stands for “universal life energy.”
When it comes to treating addiction, reiki promotes relaxation and healing. It also helps alleviate feelings of shame, guilt and isolation.
At Reflections, we’ve found that the practice of reiki helps relieve withdrawal symptoms such as:
- Muscle aches and pain
Reiki is one of the primary supplements to our overall approach to addiction treatment at Reflections.
One of our goals at Reflections is to help our clients relearn to enjoy themselves and have a good time without the need for substances. This is why we go on frequent experiential outings in Prescott, Prescott Valley and around Northern Arizona.
Prescott is ripe with beautiful mountains and lakes, which means we’ll take clients hiking, swimming and more. This part of Arizona maintains a fairly temperate climate, which allows us to go outdoors almost any time during the year. Our town is also equipped with several skate parks, basketball courts and other outdoor resources.
Recreational activities sometimes involve lower-intensity pursuits such as exploring a museum or enjoying substance-free social gatherings. No matter the activity, our program aims to address the physical and mental health of each client.
