The Holistic Approach

“Holistic” has become a buzz word in addiction treatment, but what does it really mean? And how can you be sure the program you choose will actually deliver on its claims? At Promises Scottsdale, holistic addiction treatment isn’t a catch phrase. Speak Confidentially with a Promises Scottsdale Recovery Advisor at 888-478-0036.

Our program is overseen by a full-time, on-site  physician, broadly trained in treating clients from a biopsychosocial perspective. The treatment team is rounded out by a carefully selected group of master’s level clinicians who are always on the lookout for innovative, outside-of-the-box solutions.

A Truly Integrative Approach to Health Care

Our treatment team has a diverse toolbox of approaches. Depending on your needs, we utilize the full range of traditional evidence-based addiction treatments and may also recommend alternative therapies. Some of our approaches include:

  • Comprehensive biopsychosocial assessments
  • Yoga
  • Meditation
  • Art therapy
  • Fitness
  • Experiential approaches
  • Massage therapy
  • Equine therapy
  • Research-backed medications
  • Non-invasive neurofeedback techniques

People in early recovery from addiction have burdened most, if not all, of their bodies’ natural systems to eliminate toxins from their livers, kidneys and lungs down to the pores of their skin. At Promises Scottsdale, our first course of treatment is not to prescribe medication that has to be processed by one or more of these already overtaxed systems. Medication often plays a role, but it is just one component of a treatment plan that also addresses nutrition, exercise, sleep, healthy relationships, stress relief and other fundamentals of health and wellness.

Our Mission: Your Total Health and Wellness

Substance abuse affects people on three different planes: physical, mental and spiritual. . Rather than putting bandages on symptoms, our goal is to identify and treat the root causes of addiction along with all of the areas of your life that have been impacted by addiction.

But we don’t stop there. Acting as your “medical quarterback,” we take a truly integrative approach to health care, recommending other treatment approaches and lifestyle changes that will promote your overall health and well-being. At Promises Scottsdale, you’ll eat nutritious, well-balanced meals prepared by our chef. You may try yoga or meditation or start a fitness regimen. We’ll help you make lifestyle changes that can be part of your life both during and after treatment, helping you preserve your sobriety as well as your health.

Addiction touches every aspect of your life. We believe treatment should do the same.

We believe that anything less than an integrative approach to addiction treatment falls short. Addiction is a complex disease that develops over time and is caused by a number of factors. It cannot be effectively addressed using a single treatment modality. That’s why we use a multifaceted, multidisciplinary process that grants you options in your treatment.

Your treatment will be customized based on your drug(s) of choice and health requirements. For example, alcoholics in early recovery often binge on refined carbohydrates, such as chips, desserts and other types of “junk food” because their brains have been conditioned to crave sugar by prolonged exposure to another simple carbohydrate – alcohol. We believe an important part of treatment is educating clients about these risks and creating aftercare plans that actively guard against cross-addictions and relapse triggers.

We are committed to finding answers to your health concerns, whether those answers come from conventional or nonconventional medicine, and have the training and experience to utilize both approaches seamlessly. At Promises Scottsdale, this is what holistic addiction treatment means, and it’s the type of highly effective care you can expect from us.
