Although many holistic treatments have been used for centuries, modern science has only recently begun to realize their full potential to heal in conjunction with cutting edge techniques. Palm Beach Recovery recognizes the massive potential of a “whole-body” treatment approach and has constructed a dynamic holistic and adventure-based treatment program that provides the benefits of outdoor/activity based programming with holistic depending on the needs and preferences of the individual. Nutrition, fitness and holistic pain-management techniques are incorporated in order to promote lasting benefits in the lives of our clients. Our multi-disciplinary program can be utilized to treat a wide array of addictions and mental ailments – eating disorders, gambling addiction, alcohol dependency & sex addictions. As many mental disorders are a root cause of addiction and dependency, our treatment programs can be specifically tailored to address dual diagnosis personality & bi-polar disorders, in addition to more complex and lasting mental health issues.
Rather than simply focusing on the physical aspects of addiction, clinical treatment at Palm Beach Recovery offers what we refer to as a “whole body treatment”. We strive to empower our residents with the confidence, knowledge and sense of balance necessary to make lasting commitments to their mental, physical & spiritual health. Our programs are individualized in such a way that the patient is able to determine the root causes of their addiction and is given the tools to battle those stresses free of chemical dependency.
Fast gaining ground in the treatment of addiction is the ancient art of acupuncture. Extremely effective in minimizing the effects of chemical withdrawal symptoms, acupuncture accesses the body’s natural channels of energy & can greatly increase a patient’s sense of calm and well-being.
Similar to acupuncture, and with a vast number of whole-body benefits, massage is a fantastic daily treatment we use to relieve the body of stress & toxins. Pressure along energy canals in major muscle groups helps to release natural mood enhancing chemicals & has a profound effect on mental & physical stability.
Used as a tool to reinforce and highlight the disciplines learned in our program, Yoga is another holistic art form that has shown an amazing effect in our resident’s lives. Knowing that addiction is a loss of control, yoga helps restore balance and harmony to the whole body and instills a renewed sense of power & self-discipline.
The benefits of a regular exercise routine are practically boundless. Working in conjunction with our nutrition programs, each patient’s fitness regimen is designed to optimize vitamin & nutrient intake. As with massage, daily physical activity promotes the release of mood-enhancing chemicals & helps to relieve all types of stress. Patients feel better overall, sleep better at night and are able to focus on their disciplines with increased mental & physical confidence.
The use of meditation in the rehabilitation process has proven to be one of the most useful tools in the lives of patients seeking deep & permanent behavioral change. Stressful and distracting thoughts are removed and focus is restored. Patients connect with their pain and suffering and, through a centering of the self, are able to see more clearly the path to healing.
