Alone or together, acupuncture and physical therapy give you balance in addiction rehab treatment. As you heal your mind and body from drug or alcohol abuse, these helpful services benefit you in many ways. Even if you have never received acupuncture before or do not believe you need any physical therapy, you can gain help and healing from these rehab services, including our acupuncture therapy program.
Acupuncture is an ancient medicinal approach that began in China. It is now also practiced all over the world for the same benefits the Chinese observed for thousands of years. Today’s rehab treatment and medical experts know that using varied approaches like acupuncture benefits addiction and disease recovery in many ways.
Acupuncture balances the flow of qi energy in your body, according to ancient theories. However, modern experts believe the practice stimulates various systems of your body, such as your nervous, digestive, and immune systems. This also gives you positive effects under a licensed therapist’s care.
Both Acupuncture and Physical Therapy in Rehab
Since acupuncture benefits people with addiction for the same reasons it benefits people with other diseases, you find it used in some rehabs today. Acupuncture is an added benefit, but it’s not used alone for drug or alcohol abuse recovery. Furthermore, rehab centers use physical fitness and nutrition for better health and emotional stability.
Combining acupuncture and physical therapy like fitness activities and nutrition gives you a better start in sobriety. You feel physically healthier, and your body also starts healing itself from ways that addiction harmed it. Through physical activity, nutrition and acupuncture, you also sleep better at night. Sleep helps you feel your best for each treatment day and gives you personal strength and a positive outlook.
Specific ways these practices help in rehab include:
- Reduced withdrawal symptoms
- Craving management
- Relaxation of your mind and body
- Balanced body chemistry
- Enhanced mental and physical functioning
Finding the Right Level of Care in Addiction Treatment
If you have an interest in using acupuncture and physical fitness to add to your recovery efforts, you simply need to find a rehab offering these services. Other services you need in rehab include:
- Multiple levels of care, such as PHP, IOP, and OP rehab
- Dual diagnosis treatment
- Nutritional therapy
- Trauma therapy
- Individual counseling
- Group and family therapies
Symptom reduction can look different for each person. Once your treatment is completed, you may still require partial, or outpatient care, and a mixture of aftercare programs and group therapy. The goals of each program will look a little bit different, but symptom reduction, reduced risk for self-harm, and improvement of your coping skills will all be important deciders when your team and you discuss being discharged from Crestview.
