Neuro Linguistic Programing and Addiction Treatment
Neuro-linguistic programing is focused on the interplay between neurology, language and the models that people rely on to create their world. The bottom line with this type of therapy is to offer people an instruction manual of how their brain works.
Although not always 100% scientifically accurate this can be a useful way of getting people to look at their negative thinking beliefs and behaviours and offers a model for change. NLP techniques can be hugely beneficial to addicts and alcoholics in recovery.

Theta Healing and Addiction Treatment
Theta Healing aims to re-programming the mind to trust in something bigger than you to clean out subconscious resentment and trauma. This is achieved through prayer and meditation and guidance with a healer. The benefits of Theta healing are noted in addiction treatment especially as prayer and meditation are two crucial steps in 12 Step recovery.
Breakthrough Life Coaching and Addiction Treatment
Life coaching helps people to identify and work towards their goals without becoming overwhelmed. Addicts and alcoholics often suffer from low self-esteem and the techniques employed here look at improving self-worth and setting people on the right path.
Breakthrough life coaching can also be employed to assist in repairing relationships which have been damaged as a result of a person’s substance misuse. #
Meditation, Mindfulness and Breath Work
Mindfulness practices are one of the buzz trends in the sphere of holistic wellness and can be used to cover a few different things. The very core of the whole idea centres on bringing someone’s attention to things that are happening in the present moment. The roots of this lie more than 2,500 years ago with the teaching of Buddha.
The Journal of Addiction Research and Therapy, for example, focuses on an intervention known as mindfulness-based relapse prevention and argues that this is an effective way of reducing substance use relapse. Part of the practice of mindfulness is the use of meditative anchor such as observing the breath to aid concentration. This practice is all about staying in the present moment. There are many other forms of mindfulness that are successfully employed in addiction recovery.
Substance misuse can lead to a range of nutrition-specific health consequences. Frequently during active addiction people either don’t eat or eat foods that are filled with additives and sugar. Doing this adds to the other harmful effects that the drugs themselves have on your digestive health. The practice of building healthy daily dietary habits promotes addiction recovery.
A holistic wellness approach to addiction treatment
A holistic wellness approach is a way of treating the whole individual and finding the techniques that will most benefit them. Ways of working can be altered to best suit the needs of the person.
