The Sanctuary at Sedona ’s Holistic Addiction Recovery 4-Step Program
Addiction Recovery Program:
Holistic Non 12 Step Approach
Recover from addiction by participating in The Sanctuary at Sedona ‘s 4-step program, regardless of how this crisis is showing up in your life, whether it is physical (disease, illness, weight), emotional (depression, anxiety, addiction), soul (mid-life crisis, lack of purpose, direction or meaning) or spirit (toxic energy patterns, re-occurring disease patterns). Our Holistic Addiction Recovery Program is a unique 4-Step program designed to work simultaneously on healing and integrating the mind, body, soul and spirit.
Are You at a Crisis Point in Your Life?
Your life may feel as though it is unraveling and spinning out of control. When we are out of balance in our lives, this imbalance creates “dis-ease” in every area of our lives. Dis-ease (Latin: Not at ease) means imbalance. Dis-ease affects us physically, psychologically and/or spiritually. Dis-ease manifests as anxiety, insecurity, depression, addiction and codependency. Imbalance and dis-ease can show up in many ways in a person’s life. Can you identify with any of the following?
Recover from Addiction and Substance Abuse
At The Sanctuary at Sedona, recovery from addiction and substance abuse is possible. In simple terms, addiction is a continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it. In addition to alcohol and drugs (both prescription and illegal), addiction includes abnormal psychological dependency on such things as gambling, food, sex, pornography, computers, internet, work, exercise, idolizing, watching TV, money, self-injury and shopping.
Recover from Codependence
Codependency is the ultimate coping mechanism that is actually revered and encouraged in our society. Codependency is a coping mechanism that can range from obsessive caretaking to consciously or unconsciously trying to control someone else’s behavior. Some simple definitions of codependency are an unequal exchange of energy in a relationship, or when you give away your power to another person, place or thing. Codependent patterns keep you from speaking your truth, taking care of your needs, health and well-being, and keep you stuck in the triangle of dis-empowerment where you continuously play out the roles of victim, rescuer and perpetrator.
Recover from Listlessness and Lackluster Life
You may often find yourself thinking, “What does it really matter?” You feel helpless. You’ve tried everything and nothing “works”. You still are not doing what you want to do. You are not with the person you want to be with. You are not living in the place you want to live. The world is a mess and there is nothing you can do about it.
Recover from “The Victim” Paradigm
You, deep down, still believe you are a victim. You feel as though you are a victim to your circumstances, family, health, lot in life, income, chemical imbalance, addiction, government, finances – even God. Your life experience is dependent on external realities outside your control.
Recover from the “Dark Night of the Soul”
You find yourself in a profound state of despair and desperation and hopelessness.
Recover from “Mid-Life Crisis” or “Emptiness”
You live in a state of meaningless apathy. You have it “all” yet this means nothing and you feel empty. You long and crave for more.
Holistic Addiction Recovery Program
Our addiction recovery program is based in absolute hope. We know you can heal. We know you matter. We know you can make a difference. We have witnessed it. We have experienced it. We also know that you and only you have the responsibility for beginning your healing journey. You can change yourself, your life and the world around you—absolutely. Everyone at The Sanctuary at Sedona has done it. You can do it too. And we will show you HOW.
What Does “Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit” Mean?
It is now substantiated by science that the mind, body, soul and spirit are all interconnected, thus if you have symptoms manifesting in your body, there must be dis-ease in your mind, soul and energy body as well. True addiction recovery and sustainable healing occurs only when your entire being is treated, not just one part of yourself.
Addiction recovery is a powerful example of how this integrative holistic approach works. Even if a person stops using the addictive substance, behavior or thoughts and identifies the emotional wounding and trauma that created the need for these coping mechanisms, without healing at the soul and spiritual level, chances of sustainable healing are limited.
An example is heart disease, which has a direct correlation with anger and stress. So, even if a person treats the coronary disease with medication or surgery, if the underlying emotional issues are not addressed during the healing process, the disease of the heart does not heal.
