Therapies we use, such as vitamin and amino acid IV therapy, yoga, massage, meditation, and infrared sauna, can help detox the body naturally and also support dual diagnosis programs.
IV & Oral Vitamin Therapy
Substance abuse can cause severe nutritional deficiencies, which can further complicate your attempts at getting clean. Through vitamin IV and oral therapy at The River Source, we can correct these deficiencies more quickly to the body and mind’s proper function. It can also boost the immune system, increase energy, and support mental health issues. Vitamin IV therapy can also deliver nutrients directly into the bloodstream, and to the places in the body it is needed more efficiently.
Amino Acid Therapy
A long-term effect of drug and alcohol addiction is co-occurring disorders such as anxiety and depression. Substance abuse causes physical changes in the brain and affects how neurotransmitters self-regulate. Amino acids are essential building blocks for the brain’s neurotransmitters, and through IV and oral amino acid therapy at The River Source, we can help restore mental health functioning more quickly and reduce feelings of fatigue.
Massage therapy is a great all-natural method to reduce pain and improve mental health issues caused by drug and alcohol addiction. Our certified massage therapists at The River Source are trained in several modalities, including deep tissue. We incorporate massage therapy into treatment plans to help reduce various issues surrounding the effects of addiction including fatigue, pain, and muscle soreness. It also helps to release serotonin and dopamine naturally, improving mental health.
Yoga & Meditative Therapy
Meditation is widely used in addiction treatment to help clients destress during their recovery program and as part of their relapse prevention plan to cope with negative health issues in a healthier manner. Yoga is a type of exercise that incorporates deep breathing and meditation. It can help strengthen and stretch muscles to reduce pain and be a part of your relapse prevention plan as well.
Dry Infrared Sauna Therapy
By using infrared light, our dry sauna at The River Source produces soothing warmth, increases blood flow, and lowers blood pressure. It is a client favorite to help detox the body, reduce stress, increase energy, boost the immune system, and relieve pain. Our dry sauna also provides a space to relax and meditate as well.
Individual therapy sessions will usually make up the bulk of your treatment program. Our therapists at The River Source use various types of therapy including dialectical behavioral therapy, emotive response therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy to help treat underlying causes of addiction and help you replace negative thought patterns and behaviors with positive ones. You will be able to discuss various aspects of your life, learn new coping skills, and discuss your future sobriety.
Group therapy provides an excellent opportunity to discuss similar experiences with others who are in addiction treatment at The River Source. Support groups like these also allow you to build lasting friendships, mutual support, brainstorming, and provide feedback to one another. It can reduce loneliness while in your treatment program and is also part of the immersive experience by surrounding yourself with others on a similar path.
Family members and other loved ones can be a huge part of your support network outside of The River Source. However, drug and alcohol addiction may not be something your loved ones do not know how to handle. Through family education, your friends, family, and significant others can learn how to better support your recovery and break enabling or codependent behaviors. Family therapy can also help everyone learn better communication skills and repair relationships that were hurt by addiction.
Part of our comprehensive treatment program is introducing you to 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, which can be powerful resources to use upon completing your recovery program. We can connect you with 12-step meetings and groups throughout Arizona, which can keep you accountable and actively working on your recovery for a lifetime.
Co-Occurring Disorders/Dual Diagnosis
Often mental health disorders like anxiety, depression, PTSD, and bipolar disorder are present along with substance abuse, which is referred to as co-occurring disorders. All co-occurring disorders need to be addressed simultaneously during addiction treatment for your recovery to be successful. Our dual diagnosis program at The River Source provides treatment of substance abuse and co-occurring disorders through individual counseling, medication-assisted treatment, and holistic therapies.
Addiction Treatment for Pregnant Women
Holistic treatment may often be the only way to help pregnant women recover from withdrawals and their addiction. Certain medications used in medical detox are contraindicated during pregnancy because of the risk of hurting the fetus. Not providing any type of addiction treatment will also run the risk of premature birth, birth defects, or the baby being born addicted to alcohol or drugs. Homeopathic and holistic therapies during medical detox and drug rehab can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and are safer during pregnancy.
Trauma is often a cause of substance abuse, and many in addiction recovery are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder. Our clinicians at The River Source are trauma-informed trained, which allows them to be more sensitive to those with traumatic pasts and handle their addiction treatments in a way that will not retrigger negative emotions or memories.
Addiction Rehab for Native Americans
The River Source is sensitive to the fact that Native Americans often face discrimination in health care settings and how their cultural and racial circumstances have contributed to higher substance abuse rates. Our specialized treatment program for Native Americans provides addiction therapies that address various cultural and racial challenges contributing to each individual’s substance abuse.
