The Complexity of Addiction
Addiction is certainly a condition, and in some ways can even be described and treated in medical terms. But that’s only part of the complicated relationship that addiction creates with a person. Unlike a physical illness, which usually only has a few well-documented methods of transmission, substance addiction can begin in many different ways. Something that started out as simply a pleasant social diversion, such as consuming alcohol, can, through a series of experiences, become a crutch to get through the day. What started as a prescription to help deal with pain after critical surgery becomes an addiction to the painkillers long after they are no longer necessary. Even physiological causes, such as a genetic predisposition towards becoming addicted to a particular substance may be a factor. According to (NIDA), addiction is considered a chronic illness.
How Holistic Addiction Rehab Programs Are Different
Certain types of mental illnesses are more likely to be part of a dual diagnosis than others. While the most common mental illnesses associated with dual diagnosis are mood disorders, several others rank highly on the list of most commonly associated with addiction.
This is why holistic rehab is a more comprehensive, effective, long-term solution. The holistic approach to recovery acknowledges that there is no one simple solution to address. It takes the time to look at all the components that may be contributing factors to an addiction and then structures a treatment for rehabilitation that addresses these needs.
How Holistic Drug Treatment Programs Work
In some cases, such as those involving depression, PTSD or some other severe condition, a dual diagnosis may be called for, where it is determined that both the addiction and the underlying mental condition need to be tackled. However, before the long term issues can be addressed, there is the physiological aspect of the addiction itself that needs to be looked at with holistic addiction treatment.
The Holistic Detox & Withdrawal Process at Beachside Rehab
Detoxifying the body is a necessary first step in such situations. Meaningful progress can’t be made if a body is still physically craving a substance. While the side-effects of the withdrawal process can sometimes be unpleasant, with nausea, fevers, chills, shaking and even hallucination as possible symptoms, depending on the substance, it’s a vital foundation for starting the recovery. Once the body has been purged, and withdrawal has come and gone, the real work can begin.
