At Huntington Creek Recovery Center, we are committed to offering patient-centered treatment modalities with an approach that treats the whole person. We believe that addiction can be best treated by addressing the underlying issues that affect patients’ minds, bodies, and spirits in a variety of ways.
Managing Emotional Distress
The mind/body connection is a powerful one, and that is why we specialize in providing experiential therapeutic opportunities to help our patients reach their recovery goals. The treatment modalities which integrate this philosophy allow our patients to find presence in their bodies, engage in self-soothing behaviors, and practice vital coping skills that they can carry back into their everyday lives.
Oftentimes, patients come to Huntington Creek experiencing significant physical and emotional pain because of their struggle with addiction. As they begin to explore new emotional depths along their path toward healing, they will likely have some challenging moments. We honor the decision to seek treatment as an incredibly brave one, because true healing requires a steadfast commitment to change. Learning to manage emotional distress is a key component of recovery, and at Huntington Creek, we have the experienced staff and therapeutic tools available to help our patients succeed in this process.
Utilizing Biosound Therapy
When emotional pain manifests itself in the body, it can result in extreme discomfort. At Huntington Creek, we help patients overcome this stress by utilizing our Biosound therapy system to build a deeper sense of mindfulness and self-awareness. Patients are invited to recline on our memory foam Biosound bed as they engage with a guided imagery experience that is accompanied by healing sounds and vibrating massage. This multisensory experience has proven to have a calming effect on patients, creating peace in the mind and body. Suddenly, racing thoughts are slowed to a more manageable pace as patients enter into a meditative state. The experience triggers the body’s innate relaxation response, which may have become weakened by a patient’s drug or alcohol use. Research suggests that this 15-minute process is helpful in managing anxiety, depression, and reducing early discharges by keeping patients invested in their own treatment. Positive affirmations are delivered to help remove deeply-rooted negative thought patterns and help patients acquire a more positive, hopeful state of mind. The Biosound therapy system consists of a variety of programs specifically designed to address the anxiety, guilt, shame, and trauma that often accompany substance abuse and other co-occurring disorders.
