Fighting a drug or alcohol addiction is one of the most difficult tasks in the world. You have to be 100% committed to the change, both physically and mentally. It requires a strong desire to recover, a loving support network, and time.
Any type of addiction seems like a lonely demon to fight, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of amazing Holistic Rehab centers throughout the U.S. to help you in your recovery process.
These centers focus on helping you through the entire process of addiction, from detoxing to mental care. The holistic approach differs from traditional centers in that the staff and community will be with you through your entire process of recovering from addiction. Plus, after you have been clean/sober, they will remain to support you.
Below is a list of some of the best holistic rehab centers throughout America. Of course, this is not a comprehensive list. Feel free to do your own research. Remember, the most important thing is that the center’s atmosphere matches your own needs.
Now, without further ado, here are three of the best holistic rehab centers in the U.S.A.
SOBA College Recovery Addiction Treatment Center
College is a time of self-discovery, constant change, and learning. But college can also become a place that enables unhealthy behavior. Drinking and using drugs are, in many cases, habits to hide from the real issues at hand.
SOBA’s program uses a holistic approach to dig into the underlying problems that spurred on your addiction. Of course, they help with the detoxing and methodology of staying clean, but they emphasize treatment of the underlying psychological disorders that cause addictions.
In fact, according to the center, detox is only a way to “address the symptom” (source: Soba College Recovery). Without treating underlying causes, harmful behaviors will continue to occur. This can lead to the vicious cycle of addiction.
The SOBA program isn’t just for individuals in college. It’s for any young adult who seeks assistance to fight their addiction.
Family & Community Services of Somerset County
Drug addiction, though it feels extremely alienating, is not an individual issue. Being addicted affects not only you but your entire community.
The Family & Community Services of Somerset County addresses the issues faced by the addicts themselves first and foremost. However, they also provide extensive care for the family members and others involved.
They have special counseling offered to children of addicted parents or siblings of drug addicts.
For the individual themselves, their program begins with an assessment of the addiction. It then goes into specifics depending on the individual. For example, if they were charged with drinking while driving, the program is different from someone just seeking help.
Genesis Counseling Centers
Genesis is a great option for those who deal with substance abuse on top of other existing issues, such as grief/loss, domestic violence, and bullying. They offer both individual and group counseling as well as other programs for individuals recovering.
Genesis offers a Drug Court program that takes would-be criminals from the court system. Instead of being imprisoned, the person will spend their time in counseling for the treatment of their addiction.
They also have a specific program for alcohol addiction, helping with the recovery process as well as educating on the dangers of excessive drinking.
For high-risk young adults, their Early Intervention Program connects them with the resources they normally wouldn’t be able to access. There is an education program, a counseling section that connects the youths with their parents, and the program specifically works with designated schools to keep the youth on track.
These three rehab centers offer different treatment methods and programs. Depending on your specific needs, this list could provide the perfect program, or it could be a springboard to start you on your own research for a center that works for you.
