Holistic Modalities for Recovery

Each and every person comes to the recovery table with their own unique experiences. There is no “one size fits all” solution. Creating your own toolkit with a healthy mix of clinical and holistic modalities will help you find the most success for long-term recovery.

Differences Between Clinical and Holistic Modalities

Modern-day recovery is often divided into two groups: Traditional (or clinical) and holistic modalities. The most effective recovery plans will have a healthy mix of both. With a wider range of options, individuals have a better opportunity to find treatment and recovery that works best for them.

Clinical Modalities

When most people think of recovery, group counseling, individual therapy, and even medication treatment may come to mind. These traditional clinical modalities are backed by decades of scientific research, and they are found to be effective in helping people overcome addiction, trauma, and even mental health concerns.

Clinical recovery can take place in primary care settings, like having a doctor write you a prescription for Suboxone to manage opioid use disorder (OUD). It can also take place in outpatient and private settings, like recovery at The Guest House.

Holistic Modalities

On the other hand, holistic recovery modalities are not usually rooted in mainstream clinical practice. These types of complementary, integrative, and alternative practices have become increasingly popular as effective tools for long-term recovery.

According to the Western Journal of Medicine, holistic medicine is an “attitudinal approach to health care rather than a particular set of techniques.” This approach emphasizes each client’s uniqueness and mutual doctor-patient relationships, as well as personal and societal responsibilities to promote health.

Psychological, spiritual, and biological dimensions of care can all be incorporated into holistic modalities. These remedies are often known to heal the mind, body, and soul together as one.

Complementary, Integrative, and Alternative Care

According to the International Journal of Health Sciences, holistic care focuses on “treating a human being as a whole person.” The basic philosophy of complementary, integrative, and alternative medicine falls under the blanket of holistic care.

Medline Plus mentions that complementary, integrative, and alternative medical treatments are not part of mainstream medicine. Instead, they may be used in conjunction with or in lieu of traditional care.

In recent years, there has been a great deal of research into complementary, integrative, and alternative care. While studies have found many holistic remedies to be highly effective, there are still questions as to how effective other practices may be.

Holistic Healing

The Guest House operates on the principle that our clients will benefit the most from highly personalized treatment. Our wide range of therapeutic modalities have been specially curated. Cutting-edge holistic programs complement our traditional therapies.

Our treatment model, in general, champions the holistic approach. We aim to provide techniques that help heal the mind, body, and soul together as one. As a trauma-specific care center, The Guest House believes that self-destructive behaviors and mental health disorders can often be traced back to trauma or other difficult events in your life. Holistic healing can help you get to the root of these traumas and break your cycle of suffering.

Healing the Body

At The Guest House, we offer a wide range of holistic modalities that help you focus on your mind, body, and soul. Healing the body can be one of the most profound remedies for your recovery. Somatic therapy and exercise are holistic practices that can help you overcome trauma and negative memories that live in the body.

Many people who struggle with addiction or mental health have lost track of healthy habits over the years. At The Guest House, you will have delicious healthy meals to help repair your body and get you back on track.

Healing the Mind

We encourage our guests to become familiar with their minds and emotions by keeping a journal. This powerful practice can help you get thoughts and feelings out of your head and onto paper, where they may not hold as much power.

It can be easy to let negative and anxious thoughts control the show. This is why we utilize powerful practices like meditation and mindfulness to help you learn how to observe your thoughts without judgment. Learning through observation is one of the strongest foundations of self-mastery.

Healing the Soul

Troubles with addiction or mental health can often be traced back to underlying trauma, emotional difficulties, or external pressures. We collectively call these causes “soul wounds.”

Spirit2Spirit Healing is our globally renowned program that offers retreats to heal your soul wounds. This program is perfect for those who also feel stuck in life or disconnected from themselves.

Soul healing can also include mind-body practices like conscious connected breathwork or even our yoga program. These ancient Eastern practices will help you develop a stronger sense of purpose as you tap into your ultimate life force and flow.
