The information as follows describes the latter and more common type of holistic drug treatment programming.
Holistic drug treatment acknowledges that the causes of an addiction are holistic in nature, and that only through a healing of the whole body and spirit can real recovery ensue. To qualify as holistic treatment, the drug rehab center should have specific programming designed to integrate the treatment of all parts of body, spirit and mind.
Holistic drug treatment does not abandon that which has proven effective in more conventional drug rehab, and a commonality of programming exists between the two. Group therapy, cognitive behavioral classes and private counseling with an addictions therapist will feature prominently at most rehabs, whether holistic or otherwise.
