Alternative treatments for addiction have been gaining steam in recent years to support traditional therapies as a supplement. Learn about how to utilize the power of alternative therapies to lower anxiety in a natural way, without the use of drugs or alcohol.
What seemed unusual or ‘outside the box’ is now considered part of a toolbox therapists and counselors can use in supporting an individual through recovery. Many treatment facilities offer the following therapies for individuals in treatment:
To get started with finding natural ways to incorporate stress reduction into a recovery plan, start with some of the following practices. Many of them can be done on one’s own, outside of a treatment center once a person enters recovery.
Other things which may be therapeutic are also water therapy, swimming, creative hobbies like art or writing and horticultural therapy including gardening. The idea is to cultivate something with one’s own hands and watch it grow. This provides a sense of structure, preparation, waiting and then the final product appears. Along the way, a person can release stress, anxiety or worries about what the future holds in recovery and just focus on the present moment.
