18 Jan Treating the Whole Person includes Holistic Practices
No two people are alike, so we provide a holistic approach.
Recovery is a process that looks different for every individual, which is why at Olalla Recovery Centers we provide a variety of activities and treatment options. Depending on what works best for our patients they have options to pick from to encourage better practices in their life-long journey through recovery.
Olalla Recovery Centers has always understood the importance of holistic practices that support health and wellbeing throughout recovery. Over the last couple of years with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to get creative but are grateful that we can still provide our patients these activities in order to incorporate them into their recovery.
We currently offer: yoga, meditation, Reiki, mindfulness, acupuncture, non-denominational church services, as well as Native American healing practices. To read more about the Native American traditional practices we incorporate, please go to our website https://www.olalla.org/inpatient/native-american-addiction-recovery/
Since overall health is an important part of the recovery process, we have contracted ARNP’s at our facility that help with biomedical and/or mental health issues while patients are in our care. We also provide lectures from nutritionists and clinical psychologists to educate our patients on a variety of topics providing information on best practices for their wellbeing through recovery and sobriety.
Overall, our goal in our approach is to treat the whole person and recognize that no two people are the same. These health, holistic and mindful practices can be helpful in focusing on one’s awareness of the present moment, helping our patients to acknowledge and accept their feelings and thoughts. We encourage trying many different things and finding what works best for them. Everyone has their own unique history and experience with substance use disorders, their treatment and journey through recovery needs to be crafted for the individual so they can develop their own unique plan to use on their journey to long-term recovery.
