It wasn’t very long ago that conventional Western medicine was, by and large, ignorant of the benefits of a holistic approach to treating both physical and emotional issues. Fortunately, today’s medical and psychological practitioners have learned to embrace a wide range of approaches to addiction and other disorders. At Avalon Malibu, our clients can be assured that every useful approach for their treatment is considered, and that each individual will have access to a range of holistic therapies that have been specifically designed to meet their unique needs.
Holistic health care is an approach to wellness based on the concept that the mind, body and spirit are all connected, and treating them together is the key to achieving optimal well-being. Instead of focusing on isolated symptoms or concerns, holistic care takes a whole person approach and considers an individual’s mental, physical and spiritual health needs as part of the bigger picture, using a number of complementary techniques to promote greater healing.
In addiction medicine, this translates to incorporating therapies and modalities that focus on both the mind and the body into a patient’s treatment plan, addressing the physical symptoms of dependency as well as the underlying mental and emotional aspects. By providing a chance to heal from the far-reaching effects of addiction, holistic care can help patients transform their lives in meaningful ways and reclaim a sense of purpose, hope and balance.
Substance abuse and mental illness are complex issues that impact many areas of an individual’s life. While traditional treatment modalities can help manage the outward signs and symptoms of addiction, they often neglect the underlying social, mental or emotional factors that inflict deeper wounds and drive maladaptive behaviors. In the long-term, these lingering issues can undermine the recovery process and trigger a relapse, making it harder to instill lasting change that comes from within.
Holistic treatment acknowledges that there’s more to addiction and mental health than meets the eye and combines traditional modalities with complementary and alternative techniques that treat the mind, body and soul. While psychotherapy, 12-step support and relapse prevention remain cornerstones of addiction recovery, holistic care also includes things like yoga, acupuncture and proper nutrition as part of an individual’s treatment plan.
At Avalon Malibu, we provide a range of holistic treatment options to help clients heal in a way that works for them. Some may find yoga more useful than attending a 12-step meeting, while others might get more out of meditation or art therapy. For those with physical issues that support the persistence of addiction, holistic treatments like acupuncture or massage therapy can provide relief so clients can focus on behavioral changes. Other holistic techniques such as finding enlightenment through qigong, the latest pharmacotherapy practices and anger management classes can open new doors that lead to more progress than conventional methods alone, helping each individual build their own foundation for lasting recovery.
Holistic health care goes beyond visible symptoms to heal both the body and the mind, targeting the underlying concerns that often lead to drug or alcohol use in the first place. The merits of combining holistic therapies with traditional treatment models have been proven time and again, with lasting benefits that include:

At Avalon Malibu, you don’t have to choose a particular approach to recovery.
