It cannot be easy to find research that backs up the efficacy of treatment programs. There isn’t a lot of research done on integrative therapies, and the results are often questionable. People wrongfully think that holistic approaches are useless for addiction and mental health treatment. These people are incorrect.
In some cases, holistic treatments could attract people who might otherwise not be interested in conventional therapies, make them more comfortable with entering treatment, and may make them more willing to try other, research-based therapies that provide a greater likelihood of recovery. These therapies can help people feel more at ease, more productive in their treatment response, and generally better able to cope with the challenges of detachment and rehab. There are reasons why holistic practices can be an excellent complement to the more evidence-based therapies.
