One of the East Coast’s Leading Holistic Recovery Centers
For nearly 20 years, Maryland Recovery has helped recovering drug addicts and alcoholics take their first crucial steps toward long-term sobriety. We do this by offering long-term addiction treatment solutions that are unique to the needs of the individual, including holistic treatments and therapies that help those in recovery to make the lifestyle changes that will be needed in long-term sobriety.
How Long Do Holistic Treatment Programs Last?
Our focus is on providing long-term care within the full continuum of addiction treatment. That simply means that we understand that there is no set time frame for a person to make a full recovery from addiction.
Some people who are addicted to drugs or alcohol can make serious lifestyle changes and commit to their sobriety within the first few weeks of recovery. Others require a little more guidance before they build up the willpower to move toward less intensive treatment.
Maryland Recovery’s holistic alcohol and drug rehab programs focus on getting you or a loved one from Point A (living with addiction) to Point B (living in sobriety, with minimal ongoing assistance). That being said, our program can accommodate any time frame for addiction recovery, including:
- 28- and 30-day treatment
- 60-day rehab treatment
- 90-day addiction treatment
- 3 months or longer addiction treatment time frames
What Is Holistic Addiction Treatment?
Holistic treatment is defined as “the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of the disease.”
What Is Holistic Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?
If physical dependence is the disease in those suffering from addiction, holistic treatment not only treats the clinical needs of that person, but also helps with the mental health, behavioral and social aspects of addiction.
This means that we therapeutically treat the lingering mental effects of drug and alcohol use after initial detox, and throughout the first year of recovery. Mental health symptoms that can affect a person in their first year of recovery from drugs and alcohol include:
- Depression, mood swings, irritability and lethargy
- Urges and persistent thoughts of substance abuse
- Feelings of hostility, anger or aggression
- Cognitive problems, trouble concentrating or feeling foggy headed
- Sleeplessness and insomnia
- Anxiety, panic attacks and panic disorders
- Feelings of stress and sensitivity to stressful situations
Holistic rehab treatment also will address the behavioral and social needs of those in recovery. Substance abuse creates a number of bad habits within a person, and these need to be addressed in recovery.
Part of a holistic rehab approach will involve helping an individual to identify their risky habits and behaviors – such as poor nutrition, lack of exercise, engaging in negative social circles, etc. Whether the person realizes it or not, they have also become addicted to a negative lifestyle, and holistic treatment will help them find healthier and more positive activities and lifestyle.
