Addiction Treatments For Drugs And Alcohol Expanding
Dealing with the consequences of alcohol and drug addiction can be overwhelming and leave families both emotionally and financially drained not knowing exactly where to turn. Fortunately there are many facilities in various locations popping up regularly with the medical know how and empathetic staff necessary to support you and your loved ones through this difficult time in your life. Depending on what kind of addiction you’re dealing with and your personal level of attachment to the drugs that you’ve been involved with, you may have a large number of options available to you. For more information on the expanding level of treatments out there, read on below:
Although it isn’t known as an obvious method of rehabilitation or detox, meditation is one of the approaches to sobriety currently being studied and tested at different facilities around the world. Yariv Levy, a theoretical computer scientist proposes experiments that may prove meditation as a fitting treatment to addiction when combined with other practices; Medical news Today explains: “Levy says the goal is to translate what has been learned from animal and human studies to better understand addiction and explore new approaches to treatment.”
Generally this approach seems to be mixed with other more common systems like medication and one on one therapy sessions. When it comes to programs that involve holistic practices such as this, it’s never a one hundred percent guarantee that results will be favorable for everybody, but on an individual basis it could definitely help. As with anytime you meditate it will depend on your current state of mind and ability to focus your energy.
Another holistic practice that’s been showing improving results in the assistance of controlling addiction is acupuncture. This medicinal method of control is derived from ancient Chinese traditions in which the stimulation of specific points across the body creates reactions in the brain, nerves, and other regions of the human form. Lan Wu of Research Gate expresses: “Dr. Wen of Hong Kong was the first (1972) to report that acupuncture at 4 body points and 2 ear points combined with electrical stimulation can relieve opioid withdrawal signs in the addicts.”
The discovery that this exercise can help isn’t new, but the acceptance of acupuncture as a possible aid in addiction recovery, and has been climbing in popularity in certain natural movements globally. Of course, the success of this activity will depend on how far along the addiction has gone and how severe withdrawal symptoms are. In some cases, and with certain narcotics it may be necessary to utilize medication to overcome the first stages of detoxification.
Yoga and Exercise
Exercise has been known to relieve many different ailments throughout the years, but it has been recently noted that certain forms of physical activity in which mental coordination is required can assist in focusing the negative feelings associated with drug recovery elsewhere. This technique works well with the above practice of meditation, and even better when utilized with deep breathing as well.
Reiki practices the art of moving your energy throughout your body to relieve negativity and create a positive and aligned set of energies in your body. This is a relatively new concept, but has begun being embraced in the Western world in many regions over the last few years. Rev. Lynette Burkert of reiki.org says the following on her specific interactions with reiki and the recovery process following or during addiction: “Once the body felt safe and supported, it seemed to release the sense of panic and trauma that accompanies withdrawal symptoms.”
Although there is not any physical touching involved in this method of healing, the overall emotional and mental response has been positive in showing improvement over dependency in some cases.
