Holistic Therapies During Detox and After
Holistic therapies are quickly becoming an important treatment element in detox and withdrawal as they can significantly assist the patient in symptom relief. Kinkaid Private Nursing Care concierge services, such as IV vitamin therapy, massage, acupuncture, yoga, and guided meditation, can be combined with ongoing nursing care during detoxification. The techniques learned in yoga and guided meditation can be used post-treatment as part of ongoing aftercare in recovery. These activities promote relaxation and mindfulness, both essential to managing stressors or triggers that can threaten sobriety.
Comprehensive In Home Assessments and Monitoring

Is Detox Enough?
It may be tempting, after completing an in home detox, to forgo the next step of recovery, the treatment phase. After clearing the body of the substance of abuse, it is common for people to think they are good to go. They feel good, they are motivated to stay sober. The problem is, they have not yet addressed the fundamental issues that have kept them enslaved to the substance. Deep-seated behavior patterns based on dysfunctional thinking has created a cycle of compulsion to use. These patterns must be addressed and changed if the individual has any hope of sustaining their recovery on a long-term basis.
After the detox and withdrawal, the next step is to enroll in either an outpatient or residential treatment center. These programs are structured around various therapies and activities that offer the tools to remain sober, as well as make lasting changes to unhealthy thought-behavior patterns. The outpatient rehab option is best suited for emerging or mild addictions, where the residential programs are recommended for those with a moderate to severe addiction or chemical dependency.
Outpatient rehabs offer flexibility, with various levels of intensity available according to the individual’s treatment needs and recovery goals. These include basic outpatient psychotherapy or group sessions, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), or partial hospitalization programs (PHP). During outpatient rehab, the individual can reside at home, allowing them to have more freedom while in treatment. They can still attend school or go to work, or manage a household.
The residential rehab offers a much more structured and supervised setting. These programs may last from one month to nine months or a year, depending on the needs of the client. There is 24-hour monitoring and support, and a full daily schedule of therapeutic activities. A residential program will usually require that the individual take a medical leave of absence from their job.
