Addiction Treatment Methods
Holistic Healing Practices
Holistic Healing Practices
Pine Tree Recovery Center’s intensive outpatient programming is organized into several different modules, each targeting different aspects of addiction treatment. One is a Health & Wellness module, which incorporates a range of holistic healing therapies including breathwork, yoga, reiki, meditation and workshops focused on the Eight Domains of Wellness. We believe the most effective approach to addiction recovery combines traditional therapeutic methods, with recovery practices and evidence-based holistic therapies. Combined these address the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual causes and consequences of addiction.
Our Health & Wellness module focuses on holistic healing, working directly with several experienced holistic practitioners who share their expertise in regular workshops and group therapy sessions. If you or someone you love has recently completed a higher level of clinical care or is simply looking for a program of recovery which offers more flexibility and personal freedom than traditional inpatient rehab, Pine Tree’s intensive outpatient program could be a good fit.

Breathwork is a non-invasive and highly effective addiction therapy tool. The practice utilizes specific breathing exercises that take place over 20 minutes or longer. At Pine Tree Recovery Center we combine our breathwork practices with an open discussion, allowing clients to address any emotions that cropped up over the course of the practice. There are several different types of breathwork, and all have proven beneficial in helping people struggling with substance abuse and unresolved trauma break through barriers and experience a cathartic and lasting release of uncomfortable emotions.
Types of Breathwork Include:
- Rebirthing Breathwork – Also known as Conscious Energy Breathing, this type of breathwork revolves around the idea that all human beings carry some degree of trauma. It was designed to help people break through suppressed trauma by engaging in conscious circular breathing and deep relaxation.
- Holotropic Breathwork – This type of breathwork is geared towards helping people improve their mind, body and spirit connection, ultimately achieving “wholeness.” In a group setting, clients are guided through a series of breathing exercises while lying down. Music is used to induce altered states of consciousness, and participants have the opportunity to discuss their experiences towards the end of the session.
- Biodynamic Breathwork – This type of breathwork was developed to help people release built-up tension and promote natural healing. It incorporates breath, sound, touch, movement, emotion and meditative practices. This approach to breathwork is based on the belief that trauma is stored in the mind and in the physical body.
- Clarity Breathwork – This type of breathwork addresses any underlying issues that could hinder the regular flow of breath and energy. The main idea behind this specific practice is people generally do not breathe to their full capacity, and learning to breathe fully might help release detrimental emotional energy.
All types of breathwork focus on repetitive, rhythmic inhaling and exhaling. There is ample evidence supporting this technique as a beneficial meditative practice and as a helpful tool which can be utilized anytime and anywhere.
Yoga helps those in recovery for addiction by facilitating a deeper connection between the body and the mind. This therapeutic practice combines a series of physical postures with breathing exercises, meditative practices and mindfulness, ultimately facilitating physical, mental and emotional wellness. At Pine Tree Recovery Center we work with several experienced yoga therapists with personal backgrounds in addiction recovery who facilitate group yoga sessions and offer individualized attention to clients as needed. Many of our clients continue their practice once treatment concludes, finding yoga a beneficial supplement to ongoing talk therapy and recovery meeting attendance.
Reiki is a form of complementary therapy beneficial to those in recovery for substance abuse and dependence. This form of energy healing revolves around a transfer of energy from the hands of the practitioner directly to the client. While this specific technique lacks concrete evidence to support its healing abilities, many clients report positive experiences including decreased stress, improved mood and reduced physical pain. During a standard reiki session, clients sit in a comfortable position as the practitioner places their hands softly over the client’s head and limbs for several minutes at a time. The length of each session varies depending on the specific needs of the client.
Our Drug & Alcohol Detox Services Include
Addiction stems from a combination of things; adverse childhood experiences, unresolved trauma, genetic predisposition, a lack of healthy coping mechanisms… the list goes on. Because addiction frequently stems from emotional distress, effectively managing emotions is an important part of the overall recovery process. Meditation teaches clients to quiet their minds and focus on the present moment. This beneficial practice centers around grounding techniques, encouraging those who previously medicated emotional instability with drugs and alcohol to completely replace unhealthy coping mechanisms. The meditation workshops we regularly offer are facilitated by experienced practitioners who guide clients through a range of techniques, all geared towards helping them achieve and maintain emotional stability. Meditation and mindfulness are useful relapse prevention tools, and they can easily be utilized in any setting at any point in time.

8 Domains of Wellness Workshops
Comprehensive wellness is about much more than eating right and maintaining a healthy weight. At Pine Tree Recovery Center we focus on a whole person approach to wellness, integrating physical health with mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. We offer a group workshop focused on the 8 Domains of Wellness, which include:
- Emotional Wellness – Emotional regulation is an important part of addiction recovery. This domain encourages the development of healthy coping mechanisms and regular engagement in self-care.
- Environmental Wellness – This domain encourages people to live in harmony with the world around them by respecting the environment and protecting it in any way possible. It encourages awareness and suggests the natural world has the potential to heal and educate.
- Financial Wellness – While money isn’t everything, working towards financial independence and security helps improve overall quality of life. This domain focuses on budgeting and managing money effectively so as to relieve potential financial stressors.
- Intellectual Wellness – This domain encourages people to continuously learn and work towards expanding their knowledge. It encourages people to approach situations with an open mind and participate in a range of scholastic activities.
- Occupational Wellness – Many people who struggle with addiction have a difficult time holding down a job for more than several weeks at a time, let alone holding down a job in a field that brings a sense of personal fulfillment. It is important to seek satisfaction and ongoing enrichment from work, which should be more than a source of income.
- Physical Wellness – Physical health is important to recovery. This domain focuses on the development of healthy eating habits, daily exercise and the importance of getting enough sleep every evening.
- Social Wellness – Creating a solid support network is crucial to long-term recovery. Social wellness focuses on healthy and mutually beneficial social interactions, healthy communication and functional interpersonal relationships.
- Spiritual Wellness – Spirituality is an important part of addiction recovery. Spirituality concerns interconnectedness and helps those who have struggled with addiction put some degree of faith in something outside of themselves.
