Holistic drug and alcohol detox services
Physical discomfort can be alleviated during substance abuse detox under the medical supervision of specially-trained care providers, while psychological unease and mental health symptoms can be addressed by our highly-qualified team of clinicians. But at Ascendant New York’s treatment facility, we don’t just stop there. Our team of holistic and comfort specialists take our integrative alcohol and drug rehab approach one step further.
Patients seeking detox in New Jersey who choose Ascendant have access to a number of treatment services, including massage, meditation, yoga, aromatherapy and personal training. Staying active and connected produces endorphins and increases the release of serotonin, which helps ease the healing process during an alcohol or drug detox, and can accelerate addiction recovery.
Abusing drugs and alcohol can negatively affect certain pathways in the brain and rewire them to create adverse reactions resulting in heightened levels of stress and anxiety. Yoga has been proven to decrease stress levels, which can in turn decrease heart rate and blood pressure. Incorporating yoga, mindfulness and meditation practices into a treatment plan can help improve the connectivity between mind and body. The ability to be self-aware and truly listen to one’s body can result in honest conversations with our medical providers and behavioral health specialists and the ability to dig down to the root of the difficulties clients face during drug and alcohol detox.
Massage can be also be used to help recover from any soreness or physical discomfort brought on by withdrawal symptoms from drugs and alcohol. The healing capacity of a massage can help reduce stress, anxiety, and even help with sleep and relaxation—all of which are integral parts of the recovery journey.
