Do loved ones and co-workers say these exact words in relation to your drug or alcohol addiction?
Ok, so let’s say you just quit?
Let’s say you begin your sobriety journey and your head is clear and you are on your way to the land of restoration and wholeness.
But are you?
What about your body, your health and your physical needs?
There is more to addiction recovery than simply quitting.
Beauterre Recovery Institute believes recovery isn’t simply about not using, but is also about treating the WHOLE person.
This means treating your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. A holistic approach to treatment that offers you a life in recovery that is whole.
Holistic treatment is not considered to be one specific type of therapy. The term covers something very broad that encompasses any type of treatment that is guided by a particular philosophy. The most accurate definition of holistic treatment is that it cures the entire person. The addict’s mental health, physical well-being, emotional state and spiritual considerations are all taken into account with holistic treatment.” – Addiction.org
Beauterre offers patients an opportunity to experience holistic recovery in the following ways:
Yoga – the practice of Yoga is not only about the breath, but reconnecting your mind and body. While drugs and alcohol are often used to escape, Yoga is a practical and helpful tool to allow one’s body to begin to reconnect and work as one.
A recent study cited that former substance abusers who practice yoga say that yoga fosters the kind of discipline and self-peace needed in a 12-Step program. “That is because yoga forces one’s mind and body to work in perfect harmony,” it noted.” – bcdinc.org
Mindfulness – This meditation practice is offered to patients in a variety of ways in hopes one can find what works best and bring the practice into his/her everyday life.
Mindfulness tackles the very roots of addictive behavior by targeting two of the main predictors of relapse: negative emotions and cravings. Treatment centers, prisons and Veterans Affairs centers across the country have implemented the program.” – Huffington Post
Acupuncture – Acupuncture is another holistic treatment approach we offer at Beauterre.
Acupuncture, which has been practiced for thousands of years in the Far East, has proven itself as a tremendously effective adjunctive therapy for addicts at multiple levels of recovery—from detox to years into sobriety. One recent study shows that acupuncture can improve brain function in heroin addicts.” – Psychology Today
In addition to these effective offerings we also include aromatherapy, spirituality, and health food prepared fresh daily by our excellent chef.
Beauterre Recovery Institute is located on the banks of the Straight River in Owatonna. The more than 180 acres of pristine prairie with walking trails, basketball and tennis courts, a golf practice tee, equine therapy and more, only enhance the holistic treatments we offer.
We want you to reclaim the life addiction steals. We also want you to be able to reclaim your mind, body and spirit as well.
