Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Addiction, mental illness and chronic pain are complicated conditions that can be challenging to treat. They involve a complex interplay of factors and frequently co-occur. At Recovery Without Walls, we believe in providing client-centered care tailored to each person’s unique physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual health.

Complementary and alternative medicine is an umbrella term for nontraditional therapies and techniques such as acupuncture, massage and yoga. When paired with conventional medical treatments, CAM can offer a holistic approach to wellness.

Benefits of Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Recovery Without Walls’ clinical team uses validated, evidence-based treatment modalities to supplement proven medical and pharmacological interventions. Through personalized wellness plans, our clients find fulfilling, effective pathways to healing.

Complementary and alternative medicine can provide multiple health benefits:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved mood, with less anxiety and stress
  • Feelings of well-being and inner peace
  • More energy
  • Better flexibility and circulation
  • Positive life changes and renewed purpose

Are You Interested in Exploring CAM?

At Recovery Without Walls, we broaden our definition of medicine and treatment to include holistic, time-tested practices. Traditional approaches often treat the symptoms of mental and physical illness without addressing the root causes of each issue. Often, leaving these underlying factors unaddressed has ripple effects that emerge months or years later.  

CAM takes a different path, relying on the profound connection between mind, body and spirit. Using complementary and alternative medicine in tandem with mainstream practices can promote wellness, prevent illnesses and manage conditions like chronic pain, addiction and mental health disorders. Recovery Without Walls’ experienced clinicians offer the following:

Many of our clients come to Recovery Without Walls because they want to take a more active, collaborative role in their healing journey. Others are exploring CAM because they have not achieved their desired results from more conventional treatments.

However, if you are currently on a regimen of prescription medication such as antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs, do not stop taking them without consulting your prescribing physician, as abruptly quitting these medications can have dangerous side effects.
