Although supplementary therapies are by no means necessary to your drug and alcohol treatment, Bali Beginnings offers you access to a number of alternative therapies which can complement your recovery.
Art & Music Therapy
Art and music therapy has been successfully used in the practice of drug and alcohol treatment since the 1950s. It is a way of expressing yourself through creativity – drawing, painting, sculpting, singing etc – in order to relieve anxiety, depression and negative thoughts.
Psycho-drama is an excellent tool for examining individual problems and issues. It uses experiential methods, sociometry, role theory and group dynamics. Its purpose is to improve personal insights and growth, clarify issues, and heighten physical and emotional well-being. Plus it’s fun!
Active addiction can prevent you from knowing what your body is telling you. Yoga is a great way to reconnect with physical sensation, reduce the anxiety, stress and depression that accompany the rehabilitation process, and help you stay in the moment, calm and relaxed.
The human mind is an amazing organ. Meditation is a treatment that uses relaxation techniques to develop greater awareness of both physical surrounding, but also emotions and mood. Studies have shown meditation to be an effective complementary therapy to traditional drug and alcohol treatments, and it is strongly recommended in all 12 step recovery programs.
