An an alternative to medication management with more pharmaceutical drugs, we have holistic treatment centers that doesn’t use the 12-step approach. Holistic treatment centers recognize the link between body and mind and encourage a more natural approach to dealing with substance abuse and mental health for everyone.
My cousin’s husband died from an overdose 2 years ago, and then and there, I knew I had to get help for my drug problem before I ended up leaving my own family behind. I had never been a religious person, and the 2 other places I called had a 12-step treatment program and God in their treatment plan. I didn’t want that. I felt like religion is a made-up system to control people, and that wasn’t for me. I also didn’t like that the other places I called tried to medicate you with pharmaceutical drugs. I heard lots of people become addicted to prescription drugs, and I didn’t want to be addicted from one thing to another.
My friend recommended calling Essential Recovery, and the experienced advisors there somehow made the process sound so easy. They understood where I was coming from and why I didn’t want religion and pharmaceutical drugs in my plan, and they offered me a holistic alternative. They helped place me at a comfortable treatment center that relied on natural and non-religious treatment methods for substance abuse, and just the effort that the advisors made to get me help that aligned with my values made all the difference for me.
