What is Holistic Detox?
The idea of holistic detox attracts some and turns off others—so what is holistic detox and what does it involve? Before you make a hasty decision to reject it, let the expert 4Rehabilitation counselors explain the benefits of choosing holistic rehab for yourself or a loved one who struggles with addiction. You can get in touch with us via our free online contact form or you can call us directly. We recommend other forms of treatment, too!
What Does “Holistic” Mean?
When it comes to addiction detox, holistic can mean a variety of things, but the core of the alternative form of rehab is that it’s medication-free. Many forms of rehab offer addicts prescription medications to help ease them off of their addictions. However, prescriptions often come with side effects—and can be addicting themselves. Many addicts and their loved ones seek alternative treatment so that they can become completely independent of addictions, even prescription addictions.
Purging the Body with Holistic Detoxification
Holistic drug and alcohol treatment lets the body do what it’s capable of doing naturally: purge itself of the chemicals lingering in the body from drugs and alcohol so that it can return to its natural state of health.
To do this, most forms of alternative treatment focus on the following:
- Eliminating or reducing distractions and temptations
- Providing an environment for addicts to safely and quickly get through withdrawal
- Building up the addict’s health through natural diet and exercise
- Using natural forms of therapy such as saunas, massages, and herbal supplements
Types of Holistic Treatment
The key to getting alternative treatment is to find a program that offers addicts a chance to break free from addiction without the help of prescription medication.
Beyond that, these alternative forms of treatment can include any of the following characteristics:
- Individual treatment
- Group therapy
When you get in touch with a 4Rehabilitation placement counselor, let them know about your preferences when it comes to alternative treatment for yourself or for a loved one. If you’re unsure what would best suit the circumstance, let us perform an assessment.
Is Alternative Rehab the Answer?

With this many medical professionals learning to heal the body without a heavy reliance on prescription medication, it’s no wonder that there are almost as many forms of alternative treatment as there are traditional treatment. Alternative treatment may very well be the answer to your or your loved one’s addiction.
