Treatment for substance abuse should never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
We take great pride in treating each client as an individual, and you deserve to receive treatment that is best suited for you and your unique needs.
At Cirque Lodge, we treat the whole person in terms of their mind, body, and spirit. It is not possible to live a joyful, meaningful life if we are fragmented or disconnected. Holistic therapy plays an essential role within treatment by addressing all of the elements of one’s health simultaneously.
Holistic therapy is based on the fact that mental health issues or physical health issues are not separate components and must be treated in unison and their entirety. It focuses on the integration of the whole person, including:
● Their physical body
● The mind as a function of the brain
● Feelings or emotions (as a function of the interaction between the central nervous system, the physical body, and the brain)
● Spirit (the part of oneself that aspires for connection and meaning)
Holistic therapy helps an individual to gain awareness of the relationships between their various parts. Through awareness of the complex interplay between these different components, individuals will gain a deeper understanding of themselves.
This understanding improves self-esteem and confidence and gives insight into their behaviors, habits and patterns, and how to change them.
Holistic therapy works on the following key principles:
● We all have the innate ability to heal ourselves
● The client is not one disease or illness but a whole person
● Sustainable healing requires a team approach between therapist and client
● Treatment involves fixing the cause of the condition, not merely alleviating the symptoms
Holistic therapies are ancient practices that can play an essential role in maintaining health and well-being. Rather than treating individual symptoms, a holistic therapist will look at the underlying causes by considering physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states of health and well-being.
Holistic therapies provide support with:
● Physical health – chronic pain, tension, fatigue, and illness
● Emotional health – negative emotions such as anger, sadness, worry, or fear
● Mental health – ingrained self-limiting issues and beliefs such as depression, anxiety, or low self-worth
● Spiritual health – feeling without purpose, lost or incomplete
