Our Integrative Approach to Addiction Care
Integrative healthcare is an approach to treating substance use disorder that combines traditional medical treatments with evidence-based therapies such as mental health care and peer recovery support. At River Valley Medical Wellness, we utilize this holistic approach to treating addiction which has been shown to be incredibly effective in helping individuals overcome their addiction and achieve lasting recovery.
One of the biggest benefits of integrative healthcare for substance use disorder treatment is that it addresses the whole person, not just the addiction itself. Our mental health care services, in particular, are provided by licensed therapists and counselors who specialize in addressing mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety that can contribute to addiction. Additionally, our peer recovery support program offers a peer-led support group that provide a sense of community and belonging to individuals in recovery. This means that individuals receive treatment for their physical, mental, and emotional well-being, which is essential for lasting recovery.
In addition to addressing the whole person, our integrative healthcare approach also helps to reduce the risk of relapse. Relapse is a common occurrence in addiction treatment, but mental health care and peer recovery support can help to reduce this risk by addressing the underlying causes of addiction and providing a sense of accountability and support. This may include addressing issues such as trauma, stress, and mental health conditions that can lead to addiction.
Another benefit of integrative healthcare is that it can be provided in an outpatient medical clinic, which is a more convenient and accessible option for many individuals. Our clinic offers an array of services that cater to individuals while they maintain their daily responsibilities, such as work and family obligations.
Overall, River Valley Medical Wellness is an effective and holistic approach to treating substance use disorder. Our integrative healthcare approach addresses the whole person, reduces the risk of relapse, and can be provided in an outpatient setting, making it a convenient and accessible option for many individuals. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, consider seeking treatment at River Valley Medical Wellness, a provider that offers integrative healthcare, including mental health care and peer recovery support.
