Irving, Texas, is a city of 240,000 just northwest of Dallas.

It’s known for being one of the most diverse zip codes in the United States, with nearly equal percentages of white, Black, Asian, and Hispanic/Latino populations. It’s also home to not only a few Fortune 500 companies but also culture, green spaces, trails, recreation centers, aquatic centers, shopping, and more.

It’s also an area where substance use can lurk. In clubs, in restrooms, bedrooms, dorm rooms, and more. For some, it’s a phase, but for others, addiction can take root, and when it does, it can be hard to shake.

Substance use disorders, or addiction, are treatable, but they can be challenging because they are such complex diseases. Environment, personal experiences, and genetics can all contribute to it. It also affects the brain, especially the areas governing impulse control, stress, and decision-making. Talk therapy and treating co-occurring disorders can help tremendously, but so can holistic treatments. These can help patients remain more in the moment and learn to handle stress and triggers in healthier ways. (Holistic treatment can also work well in tandem with culturally competent care since it incorporates many non-Western principles.)

Substance use is a real problem in the area. A North Texas Community Health Collaborative reported the top misused substances in the region (after nicotine) were alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, psychoactive substances, and opioids. North Texas counties have higher death rates due to drug and alcohol abuse compared to statewide and nationwide numbers.

Drug trafficking rings have been uncovered, including ones that sold illicit substances like cocaine to area high schoolers. That is especially troubling since drug and alcohol abuse that starts at a younger age can be much harder to overcome since the brain continues to develop into one’s mid-twenties.

That’s where holistic rehab in Irving, TX, may be able to help. Not only can they offer detox and therapy, but holistic treatment can help a person through some of the challenges they’ll face on the road to lasting sobriety.

What is holistic medicine?

Holistic medicine is also referred to as complementary and alternative medicine. The word itself translates to a whole, well-rounded care approach. It’s kind of a blanket term for any number of treatment options.

And even though some practices date back thousands of years – yoga being one of them – Western medicine has been coming around, growing more receptive to holistic options like yoga and meditation to help not only heal the body but also the mind and spirit. (That’s been helped along by studies that show yoga’s emphasis on mind-body connections and on how one feels can help a person who struggles with addiction or mental health disorders like anxiety.)

When it’s called complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), it’s usually a mix of so-called conventional medicine that’s used alongside alternative approaches. A holistic addiction treatment program in Irving, TX,  might use traditional medicine to help a person detox from drugs and alcohol and follow that up with talk and group therapies to help a person get clean and learn to stay substance-free, but holistic care may include any number of therapies to help heal the body, mind, and spirit. They include:

  • Meditation
  • Hypnosis
  • Biofeedback
  • Visualization and guided imagery
  • Art, dance, music
  • Animal-assisted therapy
  • Reiki
  • Massage
  • Tai chi
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture

There is also the option of integrative or eclectic therapy, which can combine talk or psychotherapy with alternative approaches like hypnosis or meditation.

Nutrition is a big part of holistic recovery in Irving, TX, and other centers, too, because when a person is addicted to drugs or alcohol, they may suffer nutritional deficiencies. A balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats and proteins can help a person regain their strength and help their body heal.

Holistic drug detox in Irving, TX

In checking into a holistic detox center in Irving, TX, the first goal, right after assessment, usually is to begin detoxification. That’s when the body is rid of drugs and alcohol. As the substances vacate one’s system, the patient can experience painful withdrawal symptoms like cravings, nausea, anxiety, chills, and vomiting. It’s a stressful time that can last several hours or many days. Medication may be administered to help keep clients safe and comfortable through the worst of it, but holistic approaches can be helpful here, too.

Many people who’ve abused drugs or alcohol, especially for a long time, show signs of malnourishment, and they can be underweight. They may not eat regularly, and when they do they may eat poorly. Alcohol, in particular, inhibits nutrient absorption so that clients may have nutritional deficiencies. That can affect mood and mental clarity.

Then in the early stages of detox, they may vomit frequently or get diarrhea. Not only is that uncomfortable, but it’s also dehydrating. The goal in this stage is to keep the patient hydrated. That might happen with lots of fluids, including water, juices, or sports drinks to replenish electrolytes, but in some cases, an IV might be needed until patients can keep things down. After that, it’s time to start incorporating a nourishing, nutrient-rich diet, which can boost brain power and mood.

Vomiting, chills, anxiety, insomnia, and more can also be extremely frustrating so holistic treatments like meditation and mindfulness can help provide a calming distraction. Massage might also promote relaxation and keep uncomfortable aches and pains at bay.

Benefits of holistic recovery

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive-behavioral therapy, is a major component of many holistic drug rehab centers in Irving, TX. Clients examine self-destructive behaviors and thought patterns and develop healthier ways of coping with stress, triggers, and cravings.

Holistic addiction treatment can help with that, too. Massage can ease tension and stress. Hypnosis allows a sharper focus. Yoga helps strengthen the body and center the mind. Mindfulness allows you to remain in the moment and not worry about what-ifs that might lead to stress and relapse. Meditation allows clients to realize they have cravings but helps subtract the grip they might have over a person. Art therapy or journaling can allow a person to express themselves in new ways, where they might no longer feel such a strong urge to use alcohol or drugs when feelings and emotions grow too strong.

Holistic therapies can help while in rehab but also long beyond it. Practices like mindfulness can help clients focus on how they’re feeling. Breathing exercises and stretching may help them work through tense moments of cravings. Skills like these can help prevent relapse.

Because addiction is so complex to treat, holistic addiction treatment centers in Irving, TX, can arm a patient with effective coping mechanisms that will help them stay focused on recovery long after checking out of rehab.
