What is Holistic Therapy?
Holistic health is not a new concept. It is an ancient approach that focuses on treating the whole person. It also considers how you interact with your environment.
People that abuse alcohol or other drugs often use substances as an escape or as a way to cope with life’s stressors. An American Holistic Health Association article points to the fact that in the 4th century BC, Socrates warned against providing treatment for a single part of the body. He said, in essence, that the whole body has to be well for a separate part of the body to be made well.
Promises Behavioral Health combines holistic therapies with other treatment programs and mental health treatment if needed. This treatment modality achieves the total healing to help you recover.
If you have an addiction, a mental health disorder, or dual diagnosis history, a holistic approach to treatment provides healing modalities on an individualized basis. The Promises Behavioral Health team are highly qualified to offer unique approaches to treatment, based on your treatment needs.

What Are Some Benefits?
Although you likely think of yoga as an exercise practiced by people on a beach or a yoga studio, yoga can be a type of therapy. The author of a Social Work Today article explains that when you apply yoga therapy in clinical settings, it is often a successful treatment strategy.
The tools used in this type of therapy help with impulse control. This is a factor that people with substance abuse and mental health disorders struggle with frequently. Also, yoga therapy works with your body and your mind. It heals both to make you whole again.
Some benefits of yoga and other approaches as part of the holistic approach to treatment include:
- Learning the difference between discomfort and actual pain
- Improved self-image
- Improvement in mood and overall sense of well-being
- Helps develop feelings of empowerment
- Promotes positive lifestyle changes
- Improvement in sleep
There are many other potential benefits, including a more profound feeling of awareness and a reduction in tension and stress. In addition, other positive benefits of entering into a holistic therapy program, such as improvement in your ability to focus, increased concentration, and the development of a sense of hope and optimism.
