Sub-Acute Detox from Opiates
To help you get control of your life and prevent many negative consequences of opioid use disorder, going to a professional opioid detox center like Ranch Creek sooner rather than later is crucial.
There’s hope and recovery available for those going through opioid rehab. Receiving an opiate medication assisted treatment, or a natural, holistic addiction treatment, can help reduce opioid withdrawal symptoms, and get the person through the first phase of healing.
Once the individual has completed the sub-acute detox from opiates, the opioid treatment programs available will include assessments, individual therapy, group therapy, holistic and experiential therapies, and support and guidance.
Holistic and Experiential Therapies
Although traditional and medical approaches to substance abuse will continue to have a place among treatment options, they aren’t always enough. Incorporating holistic and experiential therapies into your drug abuse treatment program can help you get clean and stay clean long-term.
The reason these therapies are so effective is that they go beyond cleaning up the current addiction and focus on improving the entire mindset. Holistic and experiential therapy options available from Ranch Creek Recovery include equine therapy, yoga, amino acid therapy and gong sound therapy.
You may hear equine therapy called equine-assisted addiction treatment or equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP). This animal-assisted therapy option utilizes the same essential idea as service dogs or emotional support animals. With EAP, interactions with horses are used to help people cope with stress and trauma by providing a safe environment to do so.
Equine therapy is often used to treat mental health conditions but can also be used to handle the stress of withdrawal symptoms or address the underlying reasons for drug abuse. Additional benefits of EAP include improved mood and emotional regulation over time.
Yoga is a practice that focuses on physical movement, deep breathing, and mindfulness — all of which aid in addiction recovery. Substance abuse can take a toll on the body, and practicing yoga can help you achieve physical healing. The deep breathing and mindfulness exercises that go with yoga can also help clear your head and provide a healthier way to cope with your emotions.
Beyond aiding in addiction recovery, yoga provides numerous physical and mental benefits. A few physical benefits include better circulation, lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health and increased immune functioning. The mental benefits of yoga include clarity, calmness and improved concentration.
Amino Acid Therapy
When proteins break down, amino acids are the result. Some amino acids aren’t readily available in your normal diet and need to be supplemented in a more concentrated form. However, proteins — and the resulting amino acids — are crucial to your overall health and physical well-being.
As mentioned above, addiction can place great stress on the body and greatly decrease your physical well-being. But you may wonder what role amino acid therapy plays in reversing those effects.
Amino acid therapy focuses on using these acids to improve the natural production (and function) of your body’s neurotransmitters. This means they can help your body produce serotonin and improve other key body functions. In turn, it can help those struggling with addiction by improving their physical and mental health.
Gong Sound Therapy
Music has been used throughout history to comfort the soul. Some promising new studies show there’s actually scientific evidence to support this age-old belief. How? Science shows that sound vibrations can help heal (or restructure) the energetic and physical bodies.
Gong sound therapy is used for exactly this purpose: to promote emotional, physical, and spiritual healing. The gong is used because it’s known to be one of the most powerful musical instruments, with one of the most healing vibrations.
The benefits of this holistic therapy often include feeling a deep sense of peace and relaxation. It also releases blocked energies and balances your body’s energy centers. Finding inner peace and balance is a crucial part of maintaining sobriety.
Inpatient Opioid Rehab with One-on-One Care
Many treatment centers offer opioid treatment but each of them is different. When you begin to review all your opiate rehab and detox treatment options, it’s important to ask questions about the program that will help you understand what to expect.
- How many clients are in the drug addiction treatment program together at any given time?
- What are your maximum group sizes?
- Does your program offer individual assessments and therapy by licensed clinicians?
- Have you previously participated in a 12-step-based or non-12-step based treatment program?
These substance abuse treatment questions will help you identify how individualized the treatment program really will be for you or your loved one. If you’re in a program with 12, 20, or even 30 other people, you most likely won’t receive highly individualized opiate abuse treatment and attention that you deserve and need.
Ranch Creek Recovery has been designed to provide customized opioid addiction treatment plans, intimate settings, increased confidentiality, more time with your therapist, and the highest quality of accommodations. Our inpatient rehab team is able to provide increased patient care by treating only 6 clients at any given time, so we’re able to provide you with real individualized care and 24/7 support.
Non-12-Step Approach to Opiate Rehab
Ranch Creek Recovery offers an evidence-based holistic opioid rehab approach in California, which is non-12-step based. This means our opioid abuse treatment programming employs therapeutic modalities that are scientifically proven to work. The treatment programming will include in-depth psychological and psychiatric assessments, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
We also offer a number of transformative treatment elements, including:
- Equine Therapy
- Amino Acid Therapy
- Family therapy sessions
Using the non-12-step approach will provide more individualized opioid disorder treatment and focus on treating the underlying conditions of each patient. The treatment team will identify any core issues related to mental health, social, medical, familial, or other areas of a person’s life that need to be addressed and treated.
As an additional layer of support, we do encourage our patients to participate in support communities for their continued recovery, such as SMART Recovery or 12-step meetings that are recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, but we leave the choice up to you.
