Holistic Recovery

46425145_xl“A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self- directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.” Working Definition Of Recovery (SAMSHA.GOV)

Recovery 
is
 a
 reclaiming
 of
 the
 self.

  Giving
 individuals 
an 
understanding
 of
 the
 “whole” self
 and
 the
 knowledge
 and
 awareness 
of 
tools 
that
 can
 help
 access
 the
 various
 aspects
 of 
self
 helps to create a powerful foundation for the journey of recovery.  Integrating holistic resources and tools can help those in Recovery be better able
 to
 understand
 and
 cope
 with
 what 
is
 arising
 as they 
move 
through 
self‐exploration
 and the stages of change into the creation of 
a
 new 
life
 – one of long-term recovery.

A Holistic Approach…

  • A Holistic Approach is one that considers the whole person – body, mind, emotion and spirit.
  • It offers a framework for optimal health, wellness, and personal growth by working to foster balance in the various aspects of self.
  • It may include alternative modalities and natural healing methods.
  • A Holistic viewpoint understands that each person is unique and that what works for one person may be different for another.
  • A Holistic Approach can be a powerful support on the journey of long-term recovery – it supports the understanding that “there are many pathways to recovery”.

Many Pathways of Recovery…

Holistic Recovery Pathways recognizes that there are many pathways of Recovery.  Just as there are many people – there is not type of recovery program that fits for everyone. We are all different and in fact most people, benefit from a combination of recovery pathways.  Taking a holistic approach to recovery and to our overall well-being really supports this idea.  It is about honoring our own needs and finding pathways and healing processes that support us.  And, sometimes, we when change and grow, we discover new pathways.  Recovery is not a straight line but more of an upward spiral.  This is understanding is one of the foundational components of the Guiding Principles of Recovery for a ROSC (Recovery Oriented System of Care).  Here is list of the Guiding Principles of Recovery offered by SAMHSA.gov:
