Holistic therapy is an alternative treatment service that focuses on the whole person, not just specific addiction-related symptoms. Our therapists consider our clients’ physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, allowing them to achieve balance and develop coping skills.
TRUE Addiction and Behavioral Health’s holistic rehab treatment facility in Murfreesboro, TN understands how an individual’s treatment plan can aid in relapse prevention, offer evidence-based treatment, and holistic healing for a better quality of life.
Holistic Rehab Services Offered at TRUE
We offer holistic therapy whether you are with us for medical detox, intensive outpatient treatment, or residential treatment. Our rehab center is a leader in holistic healthcare, and we continue to refine our services in this area. Our treatment programs use several holistic therapy services, including the following options.
Yoga is a therapeutic practice that alleviates the symptoms of addiction, pain, and mental illness because of its positive impact on mental health. We combine physical postures, breathing exercises, and meditation to encourage our clients to be in the present.
This holistic approach is an ancient practice that originated in the Indus Valley civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago. Yoga is a holistic approach to physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Forms of art therapy can include drawing, painting, sculpting, and more. It promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, doesn’t require dialogue, and is a judgment-free safe space. Through creating art, individuals can explore and communicate their emotions, thoughts, and experiences in a nonverbal and symbolic manner.
Art therapy promotes self-reflection, self-discovery, and emotional release, allowing individuals to gain insight into their addiction triggers and underlying issues. It also provides a healthy outlet for stress, anxiety, and cravings. Art-making can enhance self-esteem, build coping skills, foster a sense of accomplishment, and promote mindfulness. By integrating art therapy into a treatment plan, individuals can develop healthier coping mechanisms and improve overall well-being.
Music therapy uses music and its elements to assist with addiction recovery and mental health disorders. Music has a unique ability to stimulate emotions, bring up good memories, and boost relaxation.
In music therapy, individuals engage in activities such as listening, playing instruments, singing, or composing music. These activities can help individuals express their feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide a healthy emotional outlet.
Music therapy also promotes self-awareness and self-expression and supports emotional regulation. It can enhance motivation, provide a sense of joy and connection, and positively distract from cravings or emotions and thoughts brought on by mental health disorders. By incorporating music therapy into treatment, individuals can experience increased emotional well-being and gain new coping skills at our holistic treatment center.
Mindfulness and Meditation
Meditation, similar to yoga, is an effective stress reliever, leaving one feeling refreshed and energized. Clients at our holistic drug rehab suffering from depression, anxiety, and trauma benefit significantly from meditation as it creates inner peace and improves brain function. Continuous practice can even rebuild your fight or flight response, helping reduce cravings and prevent relapse.
Our guided meditation facilitates peaceful visualizations and leads to a state of reduced stress and peace. Our clients are better able to understand their emotions and respond to them in positive ways. Meditation also reduces stress and anxiety while improving the overall quality of life.
Guided meditation promotes self-awareness and mindfulness. Our clients can focus on their thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations.

How is Holistic Therapy Different from Other Treatments?
Living with chronic pain, substance abuse, or psychological distress can be challenging. While traditional treatment options might work for some, others find relief in alternative methods or a combination of treatment approaches.
What Happens During a Holistic Therapy Session?
The specific activities and techniques used will vary for each individual during a holistic therapy session. This is because treatment must be specific to each person to be effective. However, some common elements are often present in holistic therapy sessions. They include the following:
- Assessment: Your therapist will gather information about your physical, emotional, and mental well-being. They may ask about your lifestyle, physical health, medical history, concerns, and goals.
- Collaboration and Goal Setting: The therapist and client work together to establish goals for the therapy sessions. These goals may be focused on specific symptoms, overall well-being, personal growth, or lifestyle changes.
- Mind-Body Techniques: Holistic therapy often involves mind-body techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, deep breathing, or relaxation techniques. These practices help clients become more present, develop self-awareness, and manage stress.
- Lifestyle and Self-Care: Holistic therapy recognizes the importance of lifestyle factors in mental health and drug abuse.
- Alternative Modalities: Additional alternative modalities may be incorporated depending on the therapist’s expertise and the client’s needs. These include acupuncture, massage, art therapy, music therapy, or energy healing techniques.
- Homework and Integration: Therapists may assign exercises, practices, or self-reflection activities for you to engage in between sessions. This helps you integrate the learnings from therapy into your daily life.
What does Holistic Therapy Treat?
Seeking professional treatment for addiction treatment and mental illness is crucial. It allows individuals to manage their symptoms while improving their quality of life. Without the necessary treatment, individuals may experience more frequent and severe mood swings, negatively impacting relationships, work, school, and everyday life. We use holistic therapy to treat various disorders and conditions.
Treatment Resistant Disorders
There’s still hope if you are among the thousands of people who don’t find relief in traditional treatment options. It is essential to see the counsel of a medical professional who can listen to your concerns, perform medical assessments, and determine alternative methods that might lead to a successful recovery.
The following are some common treatment-resistant disorders that can benefit from holistic recovery.
- Bipolar disorder is a mental health disorder that affects a person’s mood, energy, and behavior. Medical professionals characterize the complex disease by episodes of extreme highs, considered mania or hypomania, and lows, which present as depression. The episodes come between periods of normal moods and can last from a few hours to days into several weeks.
- Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U. S. It has several common causes. Those include stress, traumatic events, genetics, environment, psychological and developmental disorders, and drugs and alcohol. An anxiety disorder can develop for various reasons. Anxiety is likely impacting your well-being if you can no longer do everyday things like work, visit friends, maintain self-care, or run errands.
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is when individuals have obsessive thinking patterns, including unwanted thoughts, images, or urges that make them anxious or distressed. Other examples of OCD can include fear of contamination, doubts about completing a task, or thoughts of aggression. Individuals with OCD often have significant difficulty pushing away or ignoring these thoughts.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops after individuals experience or witness a traumatic event or series of events. A traumatic event could be combat, a car accident, rape, or a natural disaster. A series of events can include repeated domestic violence, sexual assault or abuse spanning an extended period, or consistent bullying.
People with PTSD may experience flashbacks, nightmares, or mood changes. Individuals with PTSD avoid social activities and settings that trigger their PTSD.
- Cancer-related pain and psychological distress tend to bond together. The ongoing pain feeds the psychological distress. The psychological distress intensifies the physical pain. Together, they result in feelings of helplessness and depression and persistent discomfort. Traditional methods such as medication management, cognitive behavioral therapy, and group therapy aren’t enough for many individuals to manage both conditions.
Drug addiction is when an individual uses drugs for reasons other than their intended purpose, despite experiencing harmful effects. This is also called substance use disorder (SUD). It’s a long-term condition with significant attachment issues.
As people use substances more, self-control isn’t easy to muster. The result is adverse physical and mental health outcomes. A customized approach that includes prevention, intervention, and ongoing support enables lasting success. Holistic therapy fulfills the urgent need for accessible and affordable treatment options.
Mental Health Disorders
Mental health can affect individuals from all walks of life. By considering the whole person rather than focusing solely on the symptoms of the mental illness, holistic therapy aims to promote healing and well-being on multiple levels. Holistic therapies help clients develop self-awareness, manage stress, improve emotional regulation, and enhance overall mental well-being. These therapies emphasize self-care, self-empowerment, and a balanced lifestyle, promoting long-term healing and recovery.
Co-Occurring Substance Abuse Disorders
Substance use disorders (SUD) have a disproportionate impact on the BIPOC community as well. Cultural factors, systemic inequalities, and self-medication to cope with trauma and stressors contribute to higher rates of substance abuse.
A co-occurring SUD is when a person has a mental health disorder. To cope with the symptoms, they begin to abuse substances. This is a dual diagnosis that requires entering a rehab program.
The most common mental health disorders that lead to SUD are:
- Anxiety and mood disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Major depressive disorder
- Conduct disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
Some of the most common substances include the following:
- Prescription drugs
Chronic pain syndrome (CPS) causes daily discomfort for millions of people in the U.S. Any form of pain lasting longer than three months is called chronic pain. 25% of people with long-term pain develop chronic (CPS) syndrome.
The level of pain ranges from mild to awful and constant to sporadic. Chronic pain happens when pain signals don’t stop firing. Autoimmune and inflammatory conditions create mixed pain. This medley of pain needs a professional diagnosis for effective treatment.
Many therapy approaches exist for CPS. Only 30% of non-cancer chronic pain patients improve from medication interventions. Holistic therapy can help fill that gap.
