When searching for an alcohol rehab you may stumble upon the term holistic alcohol rehab centers which claim to be the best form of alternative treatment available. Through your searches you should be aware that just because an alcohol rehab calls themselves "alternative" or holistic it does not mean they are not using conventional forms of treatment used by typical 12 step programs or ineffective therapy methods. There underlying false theories and methods of the addiction disease can usually still be found. In fact, a majority of all rehabs today have roots based off of the 12 step language.
These programs will advertise art therapy, yoga or Pilates and mind, body and soul treatment. Some will include meditation as part of your treatment plan. While exercise is beneficial to a substance user, doing yoga or meditation will do little to overcome addiction when the holistic rehab is telling you that your are diseased forever or need supportive services permanently.
Again, therapy sessions are also extremely popular in holistic alcohol rehab centers. There are problems with therapy as well. In every therapy model you are often coerced to believe the therapist views rather than making decisions and choices on your own. The therapist can also coerce or subtly manipulate the client into discussing topics such as childhood and past traumas which are not contributing factors to substance use. Therapist may also make you solely commit to being clean and sober for the rest of your life--which may seem extremely limiting to you. It ultimately may not be your goal to abstain from all use, as your goal may be to moderate your alcohol usage responsibly.
