What Elements Should Be a Part of Recovery?

Self-Help Meetings

The components of your recovery largely stem from your beliefs on what should be included as well as which treatment center you select. Some treatment centers only provide support for a mental illness or addiction, whereas others will assist with a variety of other aspects. Taking a holistic approach to recovery means that you understand all of the aspects that factor in to making a person who they are – their family history, their personality, the environment they live in, and more; the holistic approach is a much more inclusive one and incorporates a variety of elements.

Physical support – whether it’s through detoxification, medication, massage therapy or exercise/activities that promote flexibility, strength, endurance building, nutrition management and more, many reputable treatment centers will help you get your physical health to the best place it can possibly be.

Mental support – job and social skills training, education on your disorder, activities to promote memory, learning, organization, and task completion, after-care support and more are all ways that you can be supported at a reputable treatment center. With these several types of assistance to help you in many aspects of your life, you can have a peace of mind knowing that you will have the skills necessary to move forward with your life.

Emotional support – individual and group psychotherapy, drama therapy, writing therapy, music therapy, and more can all serve as an outlet for you to gain a better understanding of your emotions and to develop healthy coping mechanisms for dealing with these emotions.

Spiritual support – by building connections with your peers through group activities, connecting with your healthcare team through daily interactions and guidance, participating in holistic treatment practices such as meditation, mindfulness, acupuncture, massage therapy, hypnotherapy, yoga and more, you are building your spiritual component. In other words, you are finding enriching, meaningful activities to make your life that make your life that much more fulfilling and meaningful.
