Casa Colina offers holistic therapy in conjunction with our other modalities to help facilitate the healing of a person’s mind, body, and spirit. Holistic addiction treatment therapies are most effective when used as a supplement to our treatment program and not designed as a person’s complete course of addiction treatment. However, those who participate in holistic therapy can learn new coping skills to help prevent relapse and foster healing. Some of these methods include the following:
In addition to the excellent medical and clinical treatment you will receive at Casa Colina, our program offers care for the whole person via nutrition services. Substance abuse often leads to a lack of proper nutrition as a result of not eating enough through the day or eating foods that are low in nutrients. There are other substances that can lead to an increased appetite and weight gain.
At Casa Colina, not only does our program help identify the root cause of addition but also address nutrition. A healthy lifestyle can help mental health and reduce relapse rates.
Addiction not only effects a person’s spiritual and mental life, but also the physical. Substance abuse disorder changes the bodies chemistry. When someone gets sober, they may feel depressed or anxious due to the depleted chemicals in the body. Movement and exercise can help combat the negative emotions and help mitigate relapse. Other proven benefits of exercise in addiction recovery include:
- Stress reduction
- Improved sleep
- Increased energy
- Improved mood
Team Building Activities
Addiction often isolates us from the world and cuts us off from real relationships and friendships. Building a brotherhood of men in recovery is part of our philosophy at Casa Colina. To facilitate this community, we offer experiential team building activities. These activities allow for fellowship, exercise, and adventure in the context of a new sober life. Whether mountain biking, fishing, or doing therapeutic ropes, our facilitator-led team-building activities can equip you with the tools you need to feel connected and like you belong again.
