Holistic Residential Treatment Centers

The word “holistic” can conjure up a lot of different images and ideas. Holistic treatment is treatment that takes into consideration the entire person: mind, body, spirit, and emotions. Holistic treatment can often be associated with meditation or spiritualism, however a holistic approach can include evidence-based and scientific medicine. A holistic approach just means approaching the whole person. Holistic is by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “relating to or concerned with wholes or with complete systems rather than with the analysis of, treatment of, or dissection into parts”.

So, holistic treatment can be seen as simply integrating mindfulness and spiritual or emotional care to accompany a more scientific and evidence-based approach.

What is a Holistic Residential Treatment Center?

Residential treatment allows patients to work on a sustainable treatment plan while in a safe, home-like environment free from the distractions and stresses of everyday life. A holistic treatment element allows a patient to marry orthodox and alternative methods for the sake of a more whole-person recovery plan.

Some examples of holistic treatment include:

Diet and Exercise

A holistic approach may include diet and exercise. Patients may be recommended to change up their diet or engage in activities such as yoga or a group sport. Encouraging a lifestyle change in diet or exercise could help a patient on their path to recovery and encourage a lasting change.


Patients might be able to find inner peace in practicing meditation. Practicing mindfulness and quieting the mind can help patients to acquire more tools to maintain a recovery plan that will last.


Acupuncture, a practice in traditional Chinese medicine, involves inserting thin needles in specific pressure points of the body. It can be used for pain management and stress relief.

These are just a few holistic treatments that can be integrated along with an evidence based medical approach. Focusing on the whole person can help a patient to create a treatment plan that will last under the duress of the stresses of everyday life.
