Every person who becomes addicted has a different story.

Our holistic approach to addiction treatment is different – we focus the underlying physical, mental, & emotional factors which led a person into their addiction.

When we begin to understand ourselves, healing can happen. 

Addiction Treatment

Our goal is to partner with you or your loved one to provide a holistic, whole-person approach to addiction treatment and recovery.

You may have tried conventional addiction treatment with some or little success.

Our approach is different.

In most conventional treatment models, physical health including nutrition, brain health, digestive health, and sleep are not addressed. Without addressing these aspects you aren’t treating the whole person.  Your mental and emotional well-being is heavily interconnected to your physical health.

We use a Whole-Person Approach.

A Whole-Person Approach is most useful in achieving true healing, where the focus is on all aspects of health – mental, physical, emotional & spiritual.

If you are struggling with addiction, our Naturopathic Doctors can help.

The use of conventional treatments, such as medications for addiction is an valuable part of our treatment of addiction. However, the difference between our Naturopathic approach to addiction and the traditional medicine approach is how we view and treat this disorder.

We approach addiction from all angles, including family dynamics, other mental and physical health disorders, nutrition & lifestyle choices, etc. For instance, two vital aspects not typically addressed with conventional treatment of addiction are nutrition and family concerns.

Mental Health: Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Chronic stress, Irritability, Anger

Digestive Issues: Irritable bowel syndrome, Food sensitivities, Heartburn, Overeating/Lack of appetite

Nutrition

In our view, nutritional concerns are an essential component of any successful addiction treatment plan. Nutrition is important because certain foods target the same reward pathways that addictive drugs and alcohol target. For example, it is common for people to lose weight while using drugs or alcohol, and gain excessive weight while in recovery because these individuals are substituting food “highs” for drugs and alcohol. Therefore, proper nutrition can prevent excessive weight gain. Furthermore, proper nutrition can help balance brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that often become disrupted during the addiction process.

Family Therapy

Family

Family is another vital aspect of addiction treatment because families are typically a primary support system for addicted individuals. In many cases, families are strained due to the addiction because they fail to understand what is occurring with their loved one. Other times, families can contribute to the addiction by enabling behaviors. Bottom line, family dynamics are an essential component in the treatment of addiction. We provide individual as well as family support to help the family heal as a whole.

Remember…

Addiction is a chronic disease

Addiction is a chronic disease (like high blood pressure or diabetes). Therefore, there are various changes in the brain and body, which take time to address and correct. Treating addiction is not as simple as just stopping drug or alcohol use. Like other chronic diseases, a multi-pronged approach is needed to treat the condition most effectively.

Addiction is a brain disease

It is important to remember that addiction is a brain disease. Like other brain diseases (such as anxiety and depression) addiction is treatable. Keep this in mind if your loved one is suffering from addiction – addiction is not simply a moral failing.
